    Default OK Lets hear it! What did ya get for Christmas??

    The wife decided she'd heard enough of me complaining about my Ryobi Batterries always dying midway thru drilling, grinding or what have you when working on the 260Z project car. So I got.....

    The new 1 hour green Lithium Charger
    2) new 18 volt Lithium Ion Batteries.

    And a hummer but I don't think that's car related...

    So what did YOU get......?

    Salt all over the roadways and a thick blanket of snow on my Z.

    Otherwise it's been good. We've mostly put mileage on my stepdaughter's rental car.
    My last three sports cars while I still owned all three:

    2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0i soft/hard top (sold)
    1966 Ford Mustang Coupe (sold)
    1978 Datsun 280Z (enjoying very much )

    I got the love of my darling wife of the last 45 years . A subscription to Nissan Sport magazine , and approval to repair the paint on the front fender/mudguard of our 240. Hell, it's hot here. Definately NO chance of snow where we live Sarah.

    Well since we're discussing what we got for Christmas I got a bottle of 12 year old Glenfiddich and a nice glass to drink it from. Other than that I got to spend the day with my family in Florida.

    What better gift could you hope for? I wasnt so lucky yesterday : (
    I did get a cool tie though

    Oh and my daughters boyfriend did get me a car cover for my Z.

    I think I would have liked your gift better...there is always tonight though!
    Are the suns, moon and venus all in alignment by chance?

    Mitchell,
    oh no. They are still available, it just depends on the mood of the Boss.

    Sarah,
    That's just VA's way of saying "stay off the roads, too many idiots out here, your Z is safer at home"

    Jan,
    I just cracked open MY bottle of Glenfiddich (12 yr old) last night. My dad was looking for something to sooth his sore throat. He prefered some Bourbon but got a real shock when he took a sip of my 12 year old Scotch. I think his throat is Still numb, or at least soothed for the moment, 24 hours later

    Mark,
    OUR moons were in alignment last night, thank god the kids didn't see them.........
    My gift was a direct result of her gift, care of Adam and Eve.com hahaha

    KJP,
    I'm sure she meant well. You got tools, fix the tool box. It wouldn't be a first, for some of us.

    Weather Tech floor liners for the BMW, a really nice Winter coat which is coming in real handy this evening's MASSIVE bliZZard, warm socks, a battery grip for my Canon SLR...and various other stocking stuffers.

    Sitting between the wood stove and the lit Christmas tree with a tall glass of Tanq and tonic with a load of lime. Let the snow fly!! 15" of fluff is probable tonight. The generator is gassed up just in case. The Z's are sheltered and 100% ready to crank whenever next season arrives...

    Hey everyone! My Z's battery uncharged yesterday after I took it out for a spin. I got the battery recharged, but before I could take it home, it began to pour so my zed got drenched... other than that I got a sweet R/C helicopter!

    I got a White Christmas in Georgia and was lucky enough not to be there. Not lucky enough to miss it at my sister's house in Pennsylvania.

    For my Z I got new carpet.

    Happy New Year Z people!

    As my fishin' partner said to me "I got a sweater for Christmas. I would've liked a moaner or a screamer, but I got a sweater."

    But as for us, the wife got me a DashMat for the 240, and a DashMat for the GMC Envoy. Also a 2-DVD set of "Comanche Moon," which is the prequel to "Lonesome Dove" (also written by Larry McMurtry).

    I went overboard on our self-imposed $100 spending limit on gifts for each other by getting her some books, some tack stuff for her horse, and a $400 set of gold earrings. She's seen me put a ton of dough into the Zed this fall and not only never said a word, but encouraged me to do it. I love that gal.

    It was a white christmas at my house. A set of white seat covers, a white headliner, and all new white plastic interior panels for the 72. Down side is that I go under the knife for 3 herinias and a bone spur on the left heal in the morning so won't be fooling with them for several weeks. As Custer is said to have said; "Oh well"

    Chris, is that the Autoart Datsun Roadster? I've been looking for one of those. They're pretty pricey. I acutally owned the 'real thing' at one point though mine was a 1600.

    Sure is Stephen, can't say anything about the price, it's a gift after all, the model is a -67.5 2000, so not the same as mine -66 1600, but close

    Perfect240Z, turn your wife over next time and you might get a bigger christmas gift

    I forgot that you do have a SPL311. Mine was a 70 with 2 liter crank, rods, and pistons, the carbs and five speed from a wrecked 69 2000 parts car I had, and some NLA Datsun comp goodies like the Solex manifold. It was a fun car! The die cast one actually has Mikini-Solex carbs!

    Got this pen from a co-worker
    I guess she thought it kind of looked like my car so it'll stay in my car.
    That's about it for Christmas... But for my birthday(was the 27th) I bought myself some headers, exhaust, mirrors and a new rear deck mat!

    Thanks, ChrisZ, for posting that nice picture of Kathy's and my early
    Christmas gift to each other. Except for:
    the year (1969 not 1966)
    the color (red not silver)
    the engine (1600 not 2000)
    BTW interesting to note they had the SRL311 in 1966; my memory
    is heading south. I thought they started in about 1967 or 1968......

    Merry Christmas to all, and All Z Best..............Kathy & Rick

    I picked up a pair of 300 zx seats. The leather is in great condition but I'll need to figure out how to dye the seats before I install them. Always have to plan for the next project.

    We can't beat that black pearl (Congratulations, and welcome to the list! ), but we're a few days from picking up a nice little red '94 Miata, if it's all it appears to be. God bless us everyone!

    My daughter made me this cool fame of photos containing pics of my '73 (top two on left and one on bottom right) and my '71 (all the rest), plus, she found this great model of a '71 240Z on eBay.

    That's Awesome Tony, Funny enough, I ended up with the same exact yellow 71' from Maisto. Even funnier is the fact that my Neighbor got it for me and I didn't get ANY Datsun related stuff from my own family.

    You guys are lucky. We said we were going to cut back this year, but dayam...

    I got

    2 packages of uncooked pasta
    2 bottle of indian curry sauce
    a hand mixer
    some gummy candies

    That is it! Do you get the impression that people buy me what they want me to have instead of what I WANT me to have?

    So I ordered a bunch of stuff from MSA and a new Dewalt finish nail gun! Mua ha ha ha

    I didn't go home to Australia this year or anywhere so I spent the money on tools and stuff for garage

    • New Craftsman roller chest and top chest
    • New craftsman mechanics tool set
    • Dewalt cordless impact wrench
    • Snap On pull down garage light
    • Harbour Freight impact sockets
    • Dewalt drill
    • Odd bits and pieces for the orange car
    • Few odd tools, liners and socket holders from harbour freight


    Seems like a lot but lots was from craigslist or ridiculously on sale

    Finally getting the new garage organised, just need to get a good bench vise to help with taking the shocks out of the strut tubes.
    Cheers
