    I'll have a little chat with Matt and teach him the phrase, "Yes, it's absolutely bone stock" for the next show. Doubt anyone would notice, LOL.

    Agreed- I myself am not a fan of judging any marque, as there are few "Judges" who know more than the local mechanic who has worked on them for 40 years. There is effectively no written history...

    I'd say that when adjusted for inflation, most classic cars end up costing around the same, with exceptions, to be sure. That's part of what makes certain models a good currency and/or inflation...

    Oiluj, congratulations on your recognition. As you say, many Z enthusiasts would prefer to see modified cars, and get more excited about those types of cars, whereas people who prefer XKEs would...

    Many, many potential topics of discussion here, some of which I have a little first hand experience with.

    Different A/C systems were installed differently in a 240Z, based on my experience. The typical installations I've seen have the control located at the driver's knee or just under the dash, and the...

    Good to hear you are ok. What Im about to say may sound cold hearted, but IMHO this was a blessing that it happened as it did. If a heavy collision is unavoidable like ths one, it might as well be...

    I contacted the seller a few days ago and have not heard back. Can't say what that means. Anyone else had more luck?

    My personal sense is that this is #22, and not a doppelganger, just based on the photos. Everything looks equally old, including the data plate, and these cars were pretty much worthless until...

    If there's a local mechanic who works on old Nissans or other Japanese cars from the era, it's likely he may have some in a box in his shop. Anything can be re-plated to look like new, so long as...

    I always thought it was important to put a new engine under some load to seat the rings somewhat early in the process? (i.e. not too much idling for extended periods) Could be wrong, so check with...

    From my chair I think you could get $8 to $9k on this car, but not without putting a little effort (and $$) into it. I've recently seen cars in similar or worse condition sell in this range, but...

    When did Z's start having that small impression for the hood stay on the front cross brace? I've always thought that was indicative of a Series 2, perhaps 1971 timeframe.

    Great photos Kats! Any chance you will relink to the image archives of your Z432 restoration you had posted a few years ago? There were some fantastic detail shots of many rare items!

    Even badly neglected Zs of the correct vintage can be worth thousands. For example, a 1970z with rust and seized motor may have a pristine uncracked dash and console, which can be sold for $2000+. ...

    Just from personal experience in the European car world, XWX tires give just about the worst ride of any tire you can put on your car. I find them to be way too hard, and offer minimal grip. But...

    On other cars I've done I've tended to powder coat what I could, because it's an inexpensive and durable finish. Perhaps it's also being a little lazy, because I don't have to clean the parts in...
