    Default Modernized Z Shape Project Revived

    Not sure if any of you saw this chopped Z idea from many years ago. Here is a n updated chronological page:

    "Mechanix Menace": An LS7-motivated, chopped and heavily modified 1973 Datsun 240Z
    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.


    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

    Wow! Just wow. I had seen this before on CarDomain and was wondering what had happened to it. Thanks for the link!

    I agree, but with the additional thought that logic has not always been involved in my car decisions either.

    WOW. Apart from being gob smacked and thinking what a slacker I am for doing so little on my Zed the last three years. I was wondering where does he get the time to do all this. Oh now I remember, he has been at it since the ninties.
    Talk about dedication. Its one of these projects that defies all logic and most would have "thrown in the towel" long time ago.

    I remember the thread on CarDomain and he memntioned he was going to lower the floor to get more head room. I wonder if he is going forward on that idea or shelved it?
