    Default check out my new z car

    I couldnt wait any longer to drive a z again(while mine is in the middle of a resto). So in fear that i might end up rushing the resto just to be able to drive it again i went out and bought another z. This one is an 2/72 model. Got a great deal on it. The engine/carbs were rebuilt, runs perfect, drives nice and smooth. The dash alone was worth the purchase. ive never seen a dash in this condition, besides the 1600 dollar dashes from msa. and some other small parts on the car are in perfect cond like the grill. i might swap the grill and dash over to my other car. so this is like a daily driver/parts car. its the first five pics of the green one. i cant believe i didnt get any engine shots, sorry

    i couldnt believe the dash either, actually the whole interior is in great shape. and i really like the tan with the dark green. still debating if i should put the wire wheels from the yellow one on this one. what you guys think?

    What a deal! Why couldn't I find something like that when I was looking. I had to settle for my 76 280z for $1000. I love my 280, even though I really wanted a 240.
