Hi guys,

Just joined the JDM clan recently with the Datsun. Was a lucky find through a friend and was a bargain as well.

Currently it's running stock rebuilt motor with just full exhaust and stock carbies. Has legal half cage and some nice coilovers. Overall starts first go and is ok for short drives - suspension not set up for daily driving but heaps of fun to drive.

Got hooked on the car after taking S30's car to a track day at Eastern Creek late last year.

Anyhow hope you enjoy the dodgey pics.

Vids to come soonies........half the fun is WOT in 2nd gear : ).

I was very lucky with this one........it's in perfect running order.

They go for anything around 8 to 12K these days for a fairly average one.

Very nice mate, very nice. I am a very big fan of Zeds. Check out the 240/260Z thread in the Appearance/Gallery section ;)

Any plans for it? Mods?

I agree with you there. But I looked at the struts and theres only around 10cm in shock travel left so I really don't want to ruine the ride, plus it was corner balanced already and feels great on the limit.

maybe when I get bored one day :lol:

Yeh bro, totally different. The golf is so much more nimble than the Z but mid corner balance and how to approach turns is better in the Z.

Not the mention the insane fuel consumption in the Z.

I'll be interesting when I get the Golf back though. Haven't driven it for yonks now.

Nah bro.......drive the Z and you'll know why it's here to stay. It's got this platinum balls feeling to it hehehhe.

but the golf will be heaps fun too.......it'll run rings around the Z.
