    I just changed out the stock struts and springs on my 260Z for a Tokico kit including springs and Tokico HP strut cartridges. Total drop was 2" in the front, 1.5" in the rear.

    I've seen *far* worse. The rust monster hasn't eaten her up yet, but that having been said, it's a major undertaking.

    I'd say 20MPG in the city with the auto trans is a low probability. With a stick, maybe. Cold-air intake? At best you'll get *marginally* more dense air charge feeding your plenum, but i seriously...

    Dude that is the best score I've seen in a long time for a deuce! Less than 10 cents a pound for a running '70--you stole that car!

    It looks 100% better than the "taxi" bumpers, I agree! I think it's an OK compromise if you don't want to migrate to 240 bumps and don't like the MSA kit.
