    New Guy (78 280Z 2+2, 73 240Z)

    Hello All. I'm new to this forum. I'm usually in the Toyota garage but just thought of sharing my two Datsun Z's.

    My 78 2+2 is pretty much stock with exception to some bolt-on goodies (MSA headers, mild cam, mild head work, lowered springs, sway bars, bigger brakes, etc). It runs really good and a lot of the work was done by Mike's Z shop in Whittier, CA.

    My 73 is in the works. There have been a lot of hurdles to jump to get this project going. The plan was to have a 3.0 stroked "Turbo Tom" motor set-up (I have the LD28 crank and Turbo Tom kit). Been having problems with my engine guy and I need to either chalk it up as a loss or find someone else to put the motor together.

    Plan on putting a Beta Motorsport coil-over kit and bigger brakes.

    ...Another 280z is always welcome 8) It's the "right" HLS30, lol :lol:

    And that's about the right way to do a 240z! Look forward to seeing progress.

    Sorry but not on Face Book. Thanks for the positive responses. I'm a member of HybridZ as well. Got lots of good info (and parts) on that forum. I picked up a 75 Toyota Corona and I'm gonna try to get that going.
