    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking on these forums for a few years now - an old Z Car has been my dream since I was a kid.

    I recently took the plunge and bought a car over in the US, pending final inspection, so I thought it would be about time I finally got an introduction post going!

    I've been an active member on a few forums, namely Mx5nutz where I had built a supercharged MX5 and 911UK for a Porsche 996tt that I still own.

    The car in Question

    1972 Datsun 240z, modified to fit an RB25DET engine.

    It's been repainted in Star Fire Blue from a 1998 Supra, which IMO is gorgeous.

    I'll let the pictures speak on my behalf:

    Currently the car is in the USA, hopefully being shipped towards New York where it'll be loaded into a container. I guess I'll get a thread up soon and document my adventures!

    I hope you have purchased many parts to hitch a ride over.

    I haven't, although it's not too late to do so! Only a few.

    Any in particular I should go for? It's mainly replacement sections as the car has a rusty dogleg (rear sill) which I've assumed means it has spots of rust in the usual places.

    Congratulation on the purchase.

    I bet the the waiting is killing you! lol I know I was ridiculously impatient last year while I waited for mine to arrive last year.

    I hope its everything that its been advertised to be and has no nasty surprises, definitely get a thread going with full details once you've got it over :thumbs:

    I've lost our cat, it was last seen round the back of your car ...

    The blue looks great. Look forward to seeing and hearing more when it gets here.

    Nice - looks like it may have been a 'Devil Z' replica?

    It certainly is! Luckily I'm going to be really busy for the next month or so which I hope can distract me from daydreams!

    I'll get a thread going when I'm back in the UK and have a bit of spare time.

    Thank you all for the messages, I'll get properly registered when she lands. For now, the car passed the inspection, highlighting the issues I already knew about only, and is now on the back of a trailer towards New York!

    Small update, it's on its way!!

    Unfortunately it's taken a little while longer than anticipated, but at least it's sea-bound.


    Not looking forward to it coming through customs, but fingers crossed it makes it through without the high duty rate!
