Not quite sure, the car is an American February 1973 example, so a I assume they are factory stock?

Thanks Mike, and oh no - not doing the Nordschleife of the GP circuit (this time), just going as a spectator. I need a truly sorted Z with the right roadholding setup to consider any serious track time.

Thanks Mark, & one job I will be doing this weekend before I go is to run a separate braided wire from bonnet latch to underneath secured so I can 'pop' the bonnet open whilst abroad!! Just incase the bonnet cable breaks on me!

Lol lets hope you don't need it, albeit if my experience has prevented someone from having the same issue then that's not all bad.

How was Germany?

All quiet on the Z front, as busy with a recent trip in a classic visiting the Spa 6hrs meet in Belgium. That's a great meet. I recall going there a few years ago for the May Classic, and am sure there was a great Nismo factory presence and Datsun Z club meet before I saw the true light and actually got myself a Z

Whilst away, Father Christmas kindly paid a visit, and looking forward to fitting these 4 pots and Nabco 15/16 bore master cylinder to push more volume of brake fluid. Only going to be a road car and will remain so, and feel that this will be a worthwhile upgrade for my driving style.

Probably saw you on the track, we had some great laps on the Saturday - proper full on experience for sure, chasing a 458 Italia through Eau Rouge

Hopefully there will be another opportunity for a Spa meet in the Z before long.

That was us lot in the Sunbeam Tigers, behind you. Great event where clubs have the time to get tracktime, though in comparison the September 6hrs has a huge number of races over the whole weekend.

Mark, we didn't end up taking the Z to the Oldtimer GrandPrix at the Nurburgring in August, the weather forecast was simply unseasonably atrocious so we ended up in a modern, albeit considered a classic now but we did snuck off to the Nordschleife





Do plan on taking the Z around the 'Green Hell' very soon!! Especially now that I have decent brakes
