    1976 Datsun 280Z (vegas build)

    Thought its time I started a build thread. Not much "build" but theres some progress with my '76 Datsun Z

    The day i got it in California.


    The car came with the stroker engine (LD28 crank,bored .20 over flat top pistons, ISKY .429 cam)


    Then i got smaller tires and painted the stock wheels red for the lawlz. Car sat high as FUUUU


    Everything was in pretty good condition besides the frame rails. Pretty rusty and smashed up.


    Then i got tired of being a lifted truck, and i still am but i threw on some coilovers (ground control)


    car sat at this height for a while



    just recently slapped some longchamps (not replicas) on it


    probably gonna be like this for a while. will make more posts when change happens lol.

    First black Datsun S30īs were the 1978 Black Pearl Edition 280Z which was actually a test to see if black should be added to the colour options.


    Looks good in black with those Longchamps though. :tu:

    Longchamps are 15x7 all around with +12 offset

    The Color is a custom PPG black with blue/red metal flakes

    but yes they did have a special pearl black. not my color tho

    you're gonna need some pretty big spacers to get them to fit. i got about 1.5 inch spacers in the back, 1 inch in the front (need bigger ones). good tire size is 195/50 or 55.
