Looking better all the time! You gotta ditch that aerial antennae though... Need something lower profile.

 

Thanks! I actually have a NIB correct factory electric antenna.....may have to be the next thing I fix.

Great story ! great find .We are both very lucky  I have never been a Z guy but I guess I am now , I will tell story as short as I can , about twelve years ago when Nissan moved to Ten. my buddy who works for tech support called me and offered a 70 240z for 2200 ,not really interested I call my friend in Nor Cal and he says buy it for him , so worked for a couple months and painted car ,was still was running he came down for a month worked on car with me , he then towed to Sebastapol ,nor Cal , car sat for all that time and he barely took apart in a garage  , I am sad to say he passed away from heart attack , his family gave his four Datsuns to my friend and I and I have to buy out my partner on Z to keep it , here it is already has built stroker with all Nissan Comp parts in there but stock motor is still up north if I go and get it . Anyway home in my garage until I sell my sr20 4dr then will start assembly ,came with new dash in box and a gang of new parts .RIP Jim Anderson my buddy you guys called him barefoot tax man ,he worked at HR Block Petaluma came out to a couple runs ..

Not much of a "build" update but it has been raining here for a few weeks so it was nice to get the car out and drive to Sonoma Raceway for Lemons races as well as Radwood and a couple other shows.  Soon I will be lowering the front end more, hopefully before the Brock meet at Blackhawk Museum on 4/7.

Lowered the car some more and took it to the Z Gathering at the Blackhawk Museum.  It was POURING on the drive down in the early morning but cleared up nicely by 8am.  Great show and hearing Pete Brock's lecture was awesome.

Ever since meeting Naveed a couple years ago I have been impressing my love of old Datsun's on him.  He has wanted to get an old car for a while and I finally talked him into buying a Fairlady Z I saw for sale.  Well he finally pulled the trigger a couple weeks ago and as soon as I got my plate back I drove down to San Jose to meet up:

Your Z looks great but can't help but intrigued by the lady riding dragon hood on that 510 next to you. Any chance you got more pics of that 70s vanning inspired fantasticness?

Notice how the RHD Fairlady Z did not have rear side markers.

Took the car on a VERY long drive with friends on Sunday.  It performed well and the roads and scenery were awesome.

IN THE FLESH! 

 

That cream coupe with the fantasy hood was advertised for sale a few years ago up and down the West Coast.  No one was able to get a hold of the seller.  Glad to see it is actually out there on the road.

 

Your Z looks great and it's nice to see you enjoying it - same with the rest of the Datsuns.  We need more cruises up here in WA.

Yep!!!!! Thats the one. The guy who bought it is his first 510.....he's owned like 7-8 fairlady's and I think he bought this car from the seller because he also bought a fairlady from him.

My friend Peter came over and helped me install the brake lines in "shakotn" and of course he drove his 510.  I love that car!
