I bought my 280Z about 11years ago, and will probably never sell it!

It was a partly stock 280Z, and looked like this
Image
It had stock wheels, but coilovers...
Stock inside, exept different chairs.
Image

But, shorthly, after hitting a fence, I added a g-front and a "whaletail".
Image
(And some other wheels.)
Image

The engine is the stock L28E, exept I swapped to Autronic SMC engine management,
with map-sensor and wastespark ignition. And a kn-filter and different end muffler.
Sorry, but couldn`t find any enginepictures right now.

The car har been a daily driver somethimes, a project car sometimes, but lately it has been neglected.
My plan now is to do a better restauration on it. (And maybe another bodykit, and new engine...)

A Z is a rally fun car to drive!

Image

In Norway, we have winter almost half of the year, but...
The Z is fun at winter too!!!
Image

But not when it get too much of it.
Image
Image

Even at winter trackdays!!!
Image
Lower the volume... And watch between 17-35 sek. Nice drift? :)

A long time project I have, is the engine from an old Nissan Patrol, with a RD28 (diesel engine),
with the head from a RB25DET, making it a petrol engine.
Image
Image
And, with a little bigger bore, making it a "RDB29DETxperimental".

My collection rigth now of 2-door cars.
Image
The porsche and the Imperial is for sale...

Other cars I had (Only Nissan/Datsun are CARS!)
Image
The Laurel was wrecked, the Skyline sold.
Image
This S12 I owned to times, first as a stock car for the road,
second it was transformed to this racecar. Sold twice!

So, for now, I have to get rid of some other cars, and spend more time and money on the Z!

Why the shenanigans with the diesel block? Didn't you guys get RB30's up there?

Pretty cool Z man :tu:

Nope, we never got the RB30 here.
I could try to import one, but I find it interesting to try to make the RD/RB combo work,
but it is a long time project...
