Figured i should post a build thread here.. my other build blog is on minkara.carviewhttp://minkara.carview.co.jp/en/userid/1701469/blog/
I may be lazy to post everything, so i will post a few pics to sum it up.
My prior rides
My last ride, FC rx7..
Blew the engine december 2010.. at the time I was facing unemployment for a few years/going through some hard times.. I tried saving up to rebuild it, but just wasnt happening.. eventually the motivation to rebuild it got lost after sitting on it for a few years.. So i ended up parting it out.. watching craigslist, i scored a 2 piece g nose.. that sparked my interest in getting an s30. Started buying parts for the s30 before actually getting an s30.. some stuff is hard to pass up.
Saw this one on craigslist, went to go look at it.. 74 260z. Good candidate for me being I live in california, so smog exemption is a major plus (and my prior cars, ive had turbo swaps and what not, and dealing with smog and police BAR refs is no fun).
Shes automatic, but i can always swap that.
Pops gave me his 99 chevy blazer a year or so back.. I figured id get something i actually want with it, so i was able to offer that as trade for the Z. Luckily the guy has an uncle who was able to tow the Z home for me. Car wasnt running. it was under the impression that a transmission cooler line was leaking.
