    Beautiful car and I'll also be interested to see what it goes for. Regardless of its selling price, it's pretty awesome just to see a 240Z in the company of some of the other cars in those photos.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was a faux gated shifter. The ad states it has a 700R4, and in the pics the shifter is shown in what would be the third gear gate. I would guess that the shifter moves...

    Great project. You have good taste in vehicles! The 240Z and FJ40 are a couple of my favorite classics, along with early 911s. Maybe one day I'll own one of each :)

    Almost forgot my most recent addition. I love the hubcaps and have no intention of getting rid of them, but I love Panasports on Z's too, like so many others... And since I have two sets of wheels...

    I'm glad Zed cleared up the issue of hydraulic vs. gas shocks. All conventional dampers are hydraulic. They use a piston moving through a fluid (oil) to generate a damping force. The faster the...
