    Looks like a good amount of engine work despite the owners lack of knowledge. It looks like he's running a wasted spark ignition with the triples. It probably goes pretty good if it's tuned well

    Not a big fan of body kits, but I am a big fan of 65 GTO's. I like that FrankenDatsun.

    I think he meant by 'boarded out' was that he sent it to a machine shop where they kept it and fed it for an extended time

    I thought surely boarded meant that they simulated washing it, perhaps with a wet rag. You know, not enough to actually wash it, but enough to make it feel like it was being washed.

    Those are well made kits.And rare as the company that made them was sued out of existance by the Prancing Horse Co.

    I would never buy a kit, I like the way Z cars look stock, But I have seen worse modifications. It really does not look that ugly. (maybe strip off the ferrari badges as it is not a ferrari).

    So, uh, how much does it cost to stay a night in the boarded out engine?

    Boarded out or not, I have to say that's a sharp ride. Like my lil Z car more, but wouldn't kick it out of the shed for leaking crank seals.

    I agree. It's a pretty car. I just hate to see a nice car (a Z) made into something it's not. A G-nose kit would be somewhat similar and would at least be authenitic -- sort of. Of course I suppose the intent is to make everyone think you own a Ferrari.
    My last three sports cars while I still owned all three:

    2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0i soft/hard top (sold)
    1966 Ford Mustang Coupe (sold)
    1978 Datsun 280Z (enjoying very much )
