    I bought a 1979 Corvette from a bank that repossessed it. It was possessed with problems.

    I can see this is going nowhere.

    I am not baiting anyone. I offered questions and links to tech.

    In the meantime, the owner of a shop that I know sent me this offer:

    The vintage racing community spends a lot of time and money returning a race car to its original livery. The owner of an old race car go do with it what they want.

    I never said the particular car had to be previously raced. I stated:

    IMO, "period correct" means as it was raced. No one that I know of raced a 1970 Nissan 240Z or a 1977 Nissan 280Z. My 1981 car was a Datsun 280ZX, and the later cars were 1984 Nissan 300ZXs. There...

    That is interesting. One of the few rules in vintage is that a car must be retired from current racing groups. I don't write the rules nor will I enforce them.:)

    I am surprised that the tech...
  8. Info? The #55 red, white, & blue 280Z race car

    This car was at the SVRA 12 Hour Sebring event.

    I didn't meet the owner. Is he here? Is anyone familiar with the car?

    Carl,
    I picked up my wife for our first date in a 3-speed 1965 Mustang. It had 110K miles on it when I bought it during college, and 235K miles on it when I sold it. I think it was the only car...

    I may have. You may have been questioning my judgment in hitting a mailbox 15 years ago? You must have assumed that I was on a public road with public traffic? You would be wrong.

    Very good. :D

    But, like some say: "Life is too short to drive a slow car".

    You'll never know the limit unless you occasionally exceed it. :)

    I forgot.

    When you go to Florida on spring break, you should watch out for wild women that want to take advantage of you. ;)

  15. My old 280Z (who doesn't wish they sold a car?)

    I bought this car new. I immediately sourced a set of Panasport wheels. I worked on this car for years. I could set the valves in 30 minutes (OK, after a lot of practice).

    I set a little more...

    Thanks, I'll pass that along to the owner. As you probably know, the new owner (Greg) did not have an opportunity to talk with Mike about the car.


    I'll be sure Greg has this. He said that the...

    He also knew Mike as a friend and plans to continue to race the car.

    Mike,
    The pleasure was all mine.

    I was diappointed in the Z turn-out this weekend. Your great 240Z (which you've had from college, BTW) was only there with a 1977 (?) 280Z. I could never find...

    Classic Motorsports (Nov. 2008)

    A 1970 Datsun 240Z is featured in the recent (Nov. 2008) issue of Classic Motorsports.

    It is part of a long article about classic cars and their "descendants" (i.g., they test a 1970 Porsche 914-6...
