    Default Hi to all of you from Germany

    Today I wrote my first reply in this forum on Filipes project (Portuguese Restoration) - time to introduce myself:
    Im in my midfourties, living in Munich and I love cars (my Corvette C5/2000, my Mercedes 380 SL/1985 and for sure my "new baby" a 240Z.

    At first I want to thank all of you. In your forum I found so much information and so many pictures, that were so helpful to me. Here in Germany the Datsun 240Z is a very rare car (40-50 left) and you will find not much about it here (info and parts). You can imagine what this means for a full restoration.

    I started my project in February this year. The very beginning was a (by far too expensive) car from Austria, that came originally from the US. It was still running, the body was very good and almost rustfree, the motor incl. carbs was redone. The "rest" was my job (thats not true: a bodyshop and a very talented mechanic did it).

    Today my project is almost finished. I think 2-3 weeks to go and she is back on the street. Puhh... it took a lot of work, a lot of money and a lot of research where to get the parts, that I needed.

    Some details:
    240Z from 5/1973; color change from orange to a dark silver (sorry to all fans of the original color), 6 in 1 header, MSA 2,5 exhaust, KYB struts, new poly-bushings, new glass, new seals, new chrome, new Rota RB wheels (7x15) and a lot more.
    Ill attach two pictures, to give you a first impression (sorry for the poor quality). I will post some more pics in about 3 weeks - promised.

    Have a good time / Juergen

    Guten Tag! Welcome to the club Jurgen. Very nice looking car you have there, I am sure you'll get plenty of attention with it compared to all the Opels, VW's, BMW's Audi's and such
