Ebay auction

hello to all that follow it has been quite the time since my last post on here.  Know I am doing well and am still very much in the car scene.  I have relocated to the Jacksonville area and will provide some coverage of what I have experience in that scene.  

Now do to unforced errors I am in the need of parts and also ridding some of mine.  So for sale are lash pads for the S30 that are new old stock items. The link can be found here or in the for sale section on the web page.

BRE Interpart Mulholland Struts

I purchased some struts some time ago trying to keep with my theme of period correct performance parts. And to my shock I had some extra parts in a shed. One of which is a full set of Interpart Mulholland struts. These were sold in the 70s and the 80s as a aftermarket upgrade using oem springs or their lowering, stiffer springs.

they have seen better days but considering they are 30yrs old they still look and operate quite good.

The internal of the strut is oil filled not gas filled. Unfortunately, once these go bad they can not be rebuilt. Although there is a way to rebuild them but it required a lot of work and if not done correctly it can be a pain and also not give your Datsun a proper balance.

This looked like a beast and that it could set some good times on a track.  It appeared to be a 930 slant nose

Neglected No More

I stated in a post sometime ago I always had a Z car.  Yet there was one car that I wanted but was scared of the age.  At the time I was not mechanically inclined and to be honest, to this day I am no mechanic due to time, lack of tools, which equals lack of know how on some things.  But I wanted a project car and thought it would be best if it were a car I cared about and really wanted regardless of condition.

Can anyone guess what it is?¬† To be honest there are a few choices that stick out I am sure……ok how about this?

datsun2

Anything yet?  And the Navy banner has nothing to do with the car or will not hint as to what car this is.  Ok how about this angle?

datsun3

Right, if that was not a dead giveaway I am not sure what to tell you.¬† There are only a few cars with the lines such as the ones I have shared.¬† The next one will confirm you ideas…….

Z Car Summary

There is something that attracts me to all Z car models.¬† The history dates back decades and was considered an affordable Japanese sports back then and still is.¬† Most of their (Datsun/Nissan) Z cars had soul, spirit, life, or whatever you may call it when driven.¬† One must drive one before time is up on this world to truly¬†drive a drivers car…specifically the early S30¬†models (240z-280z)

For those unfamiliar with the Z Car history here you¬†is a quick rundown….
