    hi everyone im new here and just bought the 300zx in my profile pic silly as ive havnt seen it yet and the owner has limited info about it. it is his fathers car before they moved to the coast but i had to get it its in my home town and its is reasonably cheap i think at $1200 i dont know but i dont have to travel or get it transported so i jumped on it. so it been sitting for 10+ years in a wharehouse so he was unsure on the model year transmission and kms but it is a twin turbo model which he said was running fine before put in storage it was all painted execpt under the bonnet but it didnt turn out the greatest so some spots have been rubbed back and they didnt get around to repaint so car hasnt been put back together and has been sitting since no front and rear bumper they were goin aftermarket but didnt get to it i dont no if i want stock bumpers or some nice not over the top aftermarket ones but he said most everything else should be there so i have abit of a jigsaw to do once i pick it up my plans for the old girl is first to prep the motor to see if it runs ok cheak for rust and im not a big fan of the motor so if it runs fine i will probably pull it sell the engine to help to start funding to do a ls1 swap using loj conversion kit thats all for now guys and girls i hope i didnt go on to much

    i just want to add i found out after going after back and forward a while that i know the guy and and his brother we all went to school together that is why i felt comfortable paying for it without seeing it in person

    Welcome to owning a 300zx
    Now go to the bank and get another morgage.
    Be prepared to be off the road more than you are on.
    Also learn how to bend your hands in a four dimensional way.
    But when she is going good it s like nothing else.

    haha thats good thanks dazza my brother is a mechanic i told him today what i had bought he told me not to bring f#@king bring it here he was joking but he said he does not reallly like the 300zx especailly working on them but he is a toyota man through and through so to him if not toyota its not worth it and he is in the middle of a 2jz 6speeed conversion into his is200 so i will be trying to do most of the work myself or what im capable of anyway cant wait to bring some life back into the old girl and get it on the road thanks again

    so i picked it up today and i was told it was 2+2 but its not i was wanting a 4 seater as i am pretty tall and i heard that the seats go back further on a 2+2 ill have to lose the gut haha and is an auto i was hoping for a manual but any way i can deal with that for now so the fun begins putting it all back together hopefully everything is there but i noticed the ecu is plugged in but is unbolted so im unsure on what they were doing with this car hopefully that its wasnt parked up and pulled apart for more reasons than just painting like he told me anyway ill keep yous posted

    Don't believe anything you hear about these cars unless it's from a Z32 owner!
    The seats don't go further back.

    and has 100,000 kms on the clock
    Don't believe this either!
