    '72 510 and '73 240z

    Hey guys, Ive been lurking on here for a little while now. I just recently purchased the '73 240z so its motivated me to get on here and post my ongoing projects. Im hoping I will be able to keep up with the thread and update it accordingly. Anyway here are the cars.

    First up is my '72 510. This from the get go was for auto-x and maybe the occasional road race. I picked it up from Kentucky about 3 years ago. Ive done Arizona Z car wilwood brake setup (yeah overkill but I dont care) with coilovers from Techno Toy tuning. I fitted Z flares and wider wheels and tires on it as well. It has a L20 with the side drafts and a dog leg 5 speed tranny. This year was the first outting with the car for auto-x, had a blast but developed a water leak. Since then I have been working on new hoses for not only the coolant system but fuel as well. My friend as been fabricating some fuel line, so far they look great. Future plans will hopefully be a VG30, that will all depend on how far I go with the Z.

    The day after I got it.


    Now.


    The 240Z is my main concern right now, I love having a nice street car. So that will be my plan for it. The previous owners did a L28E swap with the side drafts (wish it was EFI)and the 5 speed. As for everything else it seems stock. Here soon though I will be putting it up on jackstands and beginning work. Some pics.

    Thanks, yes they are ZG Flares, yes I cut the flares so I could still use the backdoors if needed. 0 offset on the XXRs, yeah the red was an accident really, thats all they had available at the time. But I ran with it, kinda made it a hot rod look.

    haha well they need some work. right now it stumbles and seems very temper mental. I wish the l28 was built for some triple webers, I would rock those happily. Thanks.
