    Default My First Z



    Hey, guys. I'm Erick, and this is my 1975 280Z. It's missing a few non-critical things, but it was running strong until two days ago. I bought it a month ago and I had a blast learning to drive it--it's my first sports car and my first manual. It's acting up now, but I'll explain that in the appropriate section.

    I sold my 2001 Honda Civic and bought this car. Definitely an upgrade!

    Erick, Congrats on your first Z and welcome! Your 280 looks to be a solid car with no rust issues, which is definitely a good thing. Once you get the mechanical issues worked out, you can get the car painted when you are ready. What is the car's original color?
