    If you get one that has been properly sorted (don't buy a project - spend the money to get one that is "done") using it as a DD should not be an issue. While they are old, they are quite easy to...

    I have the Toyota front caliper "upgrade" on my Z (with everything else still stock) and my car stops on a dime with it so I'd have to disagree with those who say it's not better than stock.

    Bart,

    There were a few different manufacturers of the "original" dealer add on 5 slot wheels - American Racing is one of those as mentioned, I think there is a thread somewhere that lists some of...

    See if you can get a new set of American Racing Ansen Sprint wheels. They are one of the makers of the "original" dealer add on wheels (like on your car), but now they make them in 15" instead of...

    Could be a bump on the tire(s) itself or another issue with the tire itself, rather than the wheels.

    Keep in mind that new springs will always sit high in the rear until they settle in. It can take several months for that to happen. Personally, I would wait until then before I decided to take any...

    There is no such thing, as there is only one mirror, but it can be attached to either side. However, because of this, if you attach two to your car the arm will be at different angles and not look...

    These tags were hung on the rear view mirror (IIRC for routing/shipping the cars) and removed (usually tossed in the trash) by the dealer. They are quite rare, so definitely keep it. There is at...

    I've got spares of the front under valence (middle and two ends with blinker holes) from a 240Z in good shape if you need them.

    Just FYI - the only factory wheel for a 240 is the steel wheel and hubcaps. Anything else is dealer add-on or aftermarket.
