    my 280zx 2+2 ratsun

    so recently picked up a 2+2 datto 280zx last month it has Side marker blinker-parking light's/brake light's and gauge wiring issue's so my cluster doesn't work for now.but the headlight's work just fine.picked it up from eagle mountain ut.bone tock L28E i did a full tune up plus a pertronix flamethrower coil,it's been parked in my back yard since so now this upcoming week im gettin her on the road for sure as the new daily/ratsun resto.you really don't see these car's done up cause people have a hard time excepting a 2+2 body style but i can see past that....well here is the sneak peak and time to start this car's timeline.

    Always nice to get free shit for a rare car. Are the plans to keep it stock?

    wow i actually saw a black 2+2 on the road this morn
    some old dude with long hippy hair behind the wheel
    maybe he bought it new i thought :lol:

    also thought to myself, that car looked seriously ancient
    (we like ancient here of course)
