    My 240 shares space with my 1964 El Camino. 427, 4 spd, 4.56 gears, runs 12.00 in the quarter. Parents bought the Z new in 72, Mom hauled me everywhere in it as a kid. She drove it daily until 2002, when I got it. Odo currently reads 278K. 1 repaint about 1995. Engine never apart until 261K, for a valve seat.

    I also have a 1963 Corvair in the driveway, was my regular commuter for 3 years until I lost my job 25 miles from home. Wife's 01 Suburban in the driveway also. 1955 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup on the street. My general workhorse, frequent runner across town, usually 5 miles or less.

    Looks awesome Guy. It's a great addition to your garage (like your garage isn't already cool enough)

    It looks great in person too. Although I have yet to see it on the wall.

    This is my new garage edition (the red one not the yellow). I bought it for my wife as a surprise Xmas gift. She is a VW nut and is soooo excited she can barely contain herself. 1985 VW Cabriolet. My dad ^ (Diseazd) had a friend of ours build and install a 1.8L 8 valve since the original motor was toast.

    And of course I couldn't let it sit in the garage just like that.. So I am doing a total restoration for her

    She loves this yellow color so It's going to get painted the rare 95 Volvo T5-R yellow cream. Doing all the work myself.






    As it was on Xmas morn. And a few progress photos.

    My first post...thought I'd share.

    In my garage:

    1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Four Door (driving work in progress)

    1973 Datsun 240Z (3rd owner, all original, new toy to work on / play with)

    In my driveway:

    2000 Jeep Wrangler

    2008 Chevrolet Corvette (post divorce gift; daily driver)


    I think most of us can agree we need/want more room.

    The main body is completely done and it's beautiful. Went ahead and shaved the sidemarkers, fender trim holes and rocker trim holes. Not a ripple anywhere. Smooth as glass. This is 2 different stages of primer and blocksanding followed by a final primer stage. I will do a light wetsand right before I shoot the base color. The doors and passenger fender are done as well. Plan on painting it this coming Monday. So stoked!!!

    My Z looks way worse than it really is because I don't have the money to hire the body and paint work and I have zero bodywork skills. I do everything myself on my cars and house, but auto body just isn't my thing. I have tried it and I suck at it. It's awesome to see others do it so well! Keep the pics coming.

    My wife's Honda Pilot stays outside.

    Had the door open to run the engine after reinstalling the rad to make sure the new antifreeze is mixed through the system properly.

    I found this very nice 71 521 a while back, not in the garage yet, but will be this spring. It needs a little TLC, interior is trash, runs rough but got itself on & off the trailer, bad respray, very minor rust, solid bed, new exhaust from the header back, bar code stickers still on the pipes. Every guy need a truck.

ID:	50793Cool 521!!! I always wanted one but don't know if I could live with the kingpin suspension. Did you get that truck in West VA? Looks like one I was eyeing for a bit.

    Edit: Not the same truck although similar.

    I agree Guy, but he should probably keep working to improve before restoring his own Z. Brandon is more than welcome to hone his painting skills on my Z.

    Thanks everyone This is my best paint job yet. It's amazing!! Would have easily cost $5k. I misted the floor with water before I shot everything and hung some plastic drop cloth. I also used a Torpedo heater in b/t coats to keep the garage warm. Make sure anyone who tries this at home never uses any type of open flame heat source while paint vapors are still in the room!

    Here are some better photos now that everything has cleared out.

    The color is hard to capture in photos. It needs to be in the sunlight.

    My dad and I installed the front Vogtland coilovers last eve. This is only 3/4's of the way down.

    Also cleaned up and painted the emblems. Cut the "fuel injection" part off below the Rabbit emblem too.

    A few more photos. Tonight I bolted the passenger fender on, painted the grill, mounted the B pillars and seals, door handles, passenger mirror and installed the lock and push button on the trunk.

    huh, I traded my Z4 M Coupe for my 335i xdrive sedan. It is a great sedan, 6 speed M sport that has been lowered and has the grossly over priced BMW power kit. We also have a V8 4runner Limited. Hoping to have the Z back on the road for May.

    2 boys in 15 months changes the game, I thought I would keep my M Coupe for a while as well. I received the second one delivered in Vancouver back in 2006, Interlagos blue on black and really loved the car, it reminded me of my first car, a 72 240Z. Sweet ride.

    Just brought my 1968 Porsche 912 home from paint shop, also added a 1973 Bultaco Alpina to the stable as well.

    I'm restoring the Bultaco also, so it will look different in a few weeks.

    These will look great sitting beside my 240Z.........once I get them put back together.

    PS.......Here's the Porsche before the restoration began. The PO painted it Red back in the 80's but I had to return the original color of Ossi Blue.

    Beautiful work Mally. I absolutely love the Porsche and the color. Is the dash all original and do you plan to do any restoration work on it? If not I fully understand as I kinda like the patina it has.
    08/1970 240z Series-1 #8011 - Silver, black int., 2.4L I-6, 5spd, 90% restored.
    06/1973 VW Karmann Ghia - Black convertible, 4spd, 1600cc air-cooled engine.
    11/2013 Scion FR-S - Silver, 6spd, a car with the soul of a Z for the modern times.

    Thanks guys,

    The dash right now has the wonderful dash cap over the cracked original.

    This winter the whole thing comes out and the gauges and full dash will be restored. I like the patina as well but it will look much better when done. I wanted to enjoy the fall driving weather so the dash and gauges will have to wait a few months.

    mally,

    I am truly at a loss for words. I have never seen such a collection of perfection in one place. You have my dream garage. An early air cooled Porsche and a 240z. Wow, you must be so proud. Such a wonderful problem you must have to decide what you want to drive!

    Thanks Z_k,

    It has been a beautiful weekend (except for FL beating TN....argggg) so both got to see some curves.

    After seeing them both I think if the Z doesn't sell I'll drive her for another season or two and then try again. I was wanting to sell the Z to start on another project, but I think I'll take this winter off........this getting older crap is starting to wear on me.

    Looking forward to your post in the next 55+ days on the TEXAS 1,000.........would love to do that one day.

    well my dd is an e36m3, 4 door 5 sp with a few mods. I would like to get back to my e30 roots and get an e30m3 but it's tough: I don't mind dd'ing the e36, it's ok when it gets a little abuse, dings, etc. A couple weeks ago someone hit the front and took off, ~$1600 in damage! But I would feel pretty uncomfortable using an e30m3 for anything where it's left unattended, too rare. Some day I hope to get an e30m3 shell and put an s54 in



    My garage has lot, lol. 16,000 square feet. My business specializes in the sales of alternative energy vehicles, so a bunch of Priuses and Civic Hybrids, a few CNG powered cars when we can find them. But my warehouse was a BMW part out facility prior to us, and my landlord still has a lot of junk in there.



    the e30 touring is no longer mine. Sold it to a guy in NYC who did an e30m3 widebody and painted it blue. Loved that car though, had a European s50b30 and e36m3/z3 m 5lug brakes/suspension. the black e30 in the foreground is my buddy's, US 3.0L m3 motor in there. the e38 is ours as well (sold a while back). the junk BMW's are my landlord's



    the white e30 in the pics is a build we did to sell, obd1 s52 (3.2L e36 m3 motor) into an e30 318i.




    had an old mk1 gti car with a ton of scca history. sold it to a buddy of mine who's just swapping a 1.8t in for now



    (came with a small fortune of Happich windows for anyone familiar. I sold the windows for more than I got for the car)!

    here's my "new" 73 Z that needs some time and money. I'll be contacting Charlie Osborne for some new floors some time soon, Arizona car but still some holes.



    and a last shot of my old touring with my dad's '71

    lol at Carl E36 M3 is the mid 90's version. E30 was the mid-late 80's 3 series. S54 is the OBDII M3 engine with ITB's.

    Oddly enough one of the interested parties for my BMW is also an S30 owner and Nationals 2nd place trophy winner who also knows my dad (Diseazd). Small world.

    Sold my turbo BMW E34. Bought this. 99 528it "individual" car meaning custom ordered in this Mojave metallic brown color and is the only one in the country. I already have my autokraft oil pan, custom engine/trans mounts as well as custom ceramic coated headers. H&R rear springs with Bilstein sports and up front, Fortune Auto coilovers which I am picking up today.

    The engine has been ordered and is a brand new crate GM performance iron block LSX 427 stroker motor. 550hp/580 ft lbs of torque. The motor comes with CTSV accessories and LS7 heads/intake manifold. Also ordered 2013 Camaro TR6060 6 speed transmission and clutch kit.

    Going to be a beast of a wagon!

    Beautiful car spitz.....too bad they don't make it in pure white.....that metallic white is impossible to match for chips etc. My wife's Lexus is that same paint. I understand a turbo is in the works for next year.

    Diseazd, thank you for the complements! Yeah, that was one of my concerns when purchasing the vehicle. I had a Subaru Impreza a few years back, and the white was so much easier to match because it was not pearl. I did get a full frontal clear bra however, so hopefully that'll keep everything clean and tidy

    In New York State you only need to transfer registration for cars 1973 and older, they had no titles. Check out the DMV website, there's a simple protocol to obtain if you don't have it

    Did that already it's from 1972 and older and the last place it was reg. was Navada. I'll check again but I'm pretty sure 1973 and above has to have a title. Even so I dont have info on the last owner I dont think its been on the road for at least 10 years

    http://www.dmv.ny.gov/proove.htm

    3/4 way down the page

    If the Acceptable Proof of Ownership is not Available

    If the acceptable proofs of ownership are not available, use these instructions to get the acceptable proof of ownership.

    Titled Vehicles

    If the seller has a title certificate that was transferred to the seller by the previous owner, and the title certificate displays the name of the previous owner, the seller must get a title certificate that displays the name of the seller. Use the instructions to apply for a title certificate only.

    If the seller cannot get a title certificate that displays the name of the seller, the seller can contact a DMV Call Center to get more information.

    Non-Titled Vehicles

    Replace a NYS transferable registration: If the NYS transferable registration is lost, the current owner can apply for a duplicate registration document at a DMV office. Use the application form MV-82 (Application for Registration or Title) and the instruction form MV-82.1. The current owner can transfer the ownership with the duplicate registration document, even if the registration is expired. The current owner must also complete a bill of sale.

    Form MV-353 (Certification of NYS Registration for Transfer of Non-Titled Vehicle): If the NYS transferable registration is lost and the DMV cannot issue a duplicate, the current owner can apply for form MV-353. The DMV must verify from its records that the vehicle was registered to the current owner. The current owner must provide proof of identity. There is a fee $10 for form MV-353. The current owner can use form MV-353 and a bill of sale to transfer the ownership.

    Form MV-51B (Statement of Ownership): If the DMV cannot issue a transferable registration or form MV-353 the registration applicant must show other evidence of ownership For example, the applicant can show an old registration, an original Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin, or an original Manufacturer's Statement of Origin. If the proof is not available, the applicant can use form MV-51B for proof of ownership.

    Form MV- 51 (Certification of Sale or Transfer for 1972 or Older Vehicles or Any Other Non-Titled Vehicles): If the seller did not register the vehicle, the boat, the ATV or the snowmobile, the seller can complete form MV- 51 and give the form to the buyer. The seller must also give the buyer the original proof of ownership and bill of sale that the seller received from the previous owner. If there are other previous owners, the seller must also give the buyer proofs of all previous transfers of ownership. The seller must also give the buyer a bill of sale.

    Proof of Ownership Supplied by the Buyer

    Before you purchase a vehicle, boat, or snowmobile that is non-titled, make sure that you will receive the acceptable proofs of ownership. If you cannot get any of these proofs, you must:

    Contact the previous owner that sold the vehicle, boat or snowmobile to you. Get a bill of sale, and a registration receipt or form MV-353 transferred to you.

    OR

    Write to the owner and request that the owner transfer the acceptable proof of ownership to you and mail the proof to you. Use certified mail to request a return receipt.

    If you do not receive proof of ownership, and the US Postal Service returns your certified letter, bring all of these items to a DMV office:

    The returned certified letter in its envelope, not opened.
    A pencil tracing, a photo or a police statement that shows the vehicle identification number.
    A notarized affidavit that explains how you got the vehicle and describes how you tried to get the acceptable proof of ownership.
    Other documents that are evidence of ownership. For example, any bills of sale or registration documents of previous owners, or your cancelled check for payment, is evidence of ownership.
    A completed form MV-51B (Statement of Ownership). Note: If you have had the vehicle, the boat or the snowmobile for less than one year and it was never registered by the previous owner, the previous owner must complete form MV-51B.
    Important Note: If your proof of ownership for a vehicle, boat, or snowmobile that is non-titled is not a NYS transferable registration transferred to you by the previous owner, the local DMV office will issue a non-transferable registration. You can use the vehicle, boat or snowmobile with a non-transferable registration, but you cannot transfer your ownership to another person.

    After your non-transferable registration is issued, the DMV Title Services Bureau examines your proofs. The Title Services Bureau decides if the DMV can issue a transferable registration. The Title Services Bureau will mail to you a transferable registration or a letter that explains why the DMV cannot issue a transferable registration.

    If the Vehicle Owner is Deceased

    Read these instructions on what to do if the owner of a vehicle is deceased.

    Well here's where the kicker the guy I bought it from never registered it so I dont have any of the previous owner info, other than what I can dig up through internet searches which aren't really helping. I found out the last place it was registered was nevada that's as far as I got, and from what I see I'll need some kind of proof of ownership from the last person who legally owned i. it looks like if I do find out who owned it I can send a certified letter requesting proof of ownership and if it gets sent back I may be able to use that. I'm gonna try and call navada DMV and see if they can help find the owner

    For anyone who is interested (hope it's ok to continue posting in here), I have some updates on the wagon. Added the M5 front bumper and yesterday, my motor arrived.

    Thomson GMPP LSX 427 with LS7 heads (titanium intake valves and sodium filled exhaust valves) and LS7 intake mani.

    http://www.streetrodderweb.com/tech/...ce_lsx_engine/

    After Thomson built the 427's, they had a few leftover and decided to take it a little further. I am waiting on the dyno sheet but I was told that this motor made over 600hp at the fly and revs to 7k The engine came with the CTSV acc kit and an E67 stand alone ECU kit. Just waiting on the TR6060 trans from Tremec now.

    Search on the Web - there are lots of guys in other States that will get you a title for just about anything. Easier to do in non-title States with older cars. They charge a fee of course.. but that may be a way to go..

    And thanks to Tony and Jackie the 67 Roadster in my garage is looking really good. It should be getting its stroker dumped in within the next week or so then off Classic Datsun for an awesome red interior. Pictures when done.

    Dang guys, lots of people here with both BMWs and Datsun. On the BMW forums I'm on, I was noticing a few people had Datsun, too. Must be a think with some of us Datsun/BMW people. Here's a pic of my E21. Recently rebuilt the entire top end and timing. Runs super nice... Not sure I'm gonna keep it though... Kinda thinking of selling so I can build up an offroad project.

    I once had a car almost just like that Zohan. Mine was a white '81 320is. It was a fun car, but needed more motor.

    Strange I should come across those last posts, in addition to the /70 240z I also own a /87 M6, an /89 535i and a /90 K75s. I'll see if I can find some pics.

    Yeah, it's a little weak on the motor. Probably has just a tiny bit more than stock on it right now. But it's a straight daily driver and I love her!

    Default '68 Vette

    I know this is a Z site. But this beauty is about to roar her way into my garage.

    Always dreamed of owning a '68. The 4 slats on the side are the giveaway that she's a '68. I remember drooling over a canary yellow one as a schoolkid at Clayton Chevrolet in Arab Alabama, in 1968. Price THEN was $5200, SAME as what my father was paying for a behemoth wagon for my mom to haul schoolkids in.

    I BEGGED Dad to get the Vette instead!

    Needs a LOT of work although the powertrain is brand new, bored out 350 and Turbo Hydramatic 400, new fuel tank, exhaust. Machined heads, hardened seats, .060 over, starts on the first crank. New Deamon carb, (can anyone tell me anything about these?)

    Nothing else works, inoperative pass door handle, AC in a box, leaking brake caliper on one wheel, electrical a mess, vacuum headlights SNAFU, inop cowl slider to expose wipers, ... a lot to be done. A whole lot. Needs a nice paint job although from 50' away it looks good "as is." Rally wheels, Quadrajet, and OEM taillights (in good shape!) in a box...along with a lot of other oem parts...

    Numbers do NOT match....yeah, big deal, right? Who besides the $50,000 restoration crowd gives a RA about matching #'s... My goal is a daily driver...yes, despite her classic
    status, I buy these things to drive them, not to store (and prepare) them for the NEXT guy...

    I observe the vacuum advance on the dizzy isn't even connected, meaning there may be another 20-40 horsepower available for the price of some vacuum hose or a dizzy advance rebuild... coil is miswired with the ballast resistor sitting disconnected on the firewall.....clearly some amateurs have been at work here...

    But you should hear her roar. Manual steering and brakes. T-tops, rear window pops out for convertible effect... Beautiful (if non-original wheels with good rubber)

    Get this --- NO SEAT BELTS!!!

    Paid $10,000. What do you think? Deal of the century or am I a complete sucker?

    Hi Wade,
    I see you went with a classic 'Vette and not the P-car we discussed - and a substantially lower investment. Looks like a fun project awaits you. At least the drive train is solid, everything else is just details. Little or no potential for tin worms. Have fun.
