    Default New 240-Z owner

    JerseyJoe stopping by to say hi!

    Just got done driving home after storing my new 71 Series 1 in my friend's garage. Can't wait to get plates and get it closer to home so I can drive it!

    Thanks for the forums, I poked around here a bit while looking for a Z, visiting mostly the classifieds. Now I have to pay attention to the good advice I read here as I can actually apply it now!

    Welcome to the joys of ownership! Post some pictures!
    Hey, and now you can update your profile and get rid of the "none yet" under cars owned! Perhaps we will cross paths... I'm in south-central PA.

    Default First picture

    Now is a good a time as any to figure out how to attach a picture. I'm the big guy on the right. I hope Mark doesn't mind his picture going up here.

    I sent one of my friends from grammar school this picture and he commented that I'd put on some weight. I told him that that was why I had to get a Series 1, they are lighter to makeup for the extra weight it'll have to carry around!

    Unfortunately, its been raining all weekend, so the best I could do was pick up the car and put it in my friend's garage which is an hour away. I haven't even sat in the driver's seat yet! Looking forward to next weekend being sunnier!

    Finally was able to take a quick 'recreational' trip in the Z. Since I dont have a garage, I'm keeping it at my sister's for now. Tonight I went over to replace the rusted Bosch plugs with new NGKs and went for a spin afterwards. I say the car runs better, but that might just be the satisfaction of doing some work on the car talking!

    The Bosch plugs were probably 7 years old, but barely 3,000 miles on them. They looked great...all dry, and light yellow with just a bit of carbon on the plug body. Insulator was tan on all plugs removed. Pretty sure this means the motor is in good shape.

    Anyway, I'll throw a few more pictures up so at least I can look at them!
