Not the brown one at Galliers? Which is now ended on eBay I see?

If so, ####!!!! I was going to call him tomorrow about that!

It's a brilliant project car. I saw it back before Xmas. If it hadn't of been for my Dad falling ill and killing any interest I had in getting involved in a project at the time, I'd have bought it. I didn't realise he had it still until I spotted it on eBay earlier.

Clearly I need to be more decisive.

Welcome back dude!!!! Can't wait to see the car and you in the flesh.

So good to hear your little bit of "drifting" didn't put you off the Z scene. And, better still that you picked up a car Richie was after - shows you made an excellent choice.

Looking forward to the pics when you have her.

To quote Johnny Palmer last Sunday at Silverstone "you like your standard car for the same reasons as I like my American cars".

Beats all those hours of welding Dan.

It sure does. Maybe I'll cut some holes in it just so I can weld it ...

Only joking. Side note though, I've no idea what I'm going to do with it. I don't want to modify to an irreversible state as its far to original so I'm thinking just a slight drop, fresh paint and some nice wheels...

Undecided on stripping it down completely as well...

Steady on - I wouldn't go that far. The end of my week has been ruined!

Clearly I need to act on impulse rather than think too much, as I'm want to do...

Dan, I was going to ask what you'd got in mind - what you've said sounds pretty good. It's such a great shell that really a bit of tidying up, new exterior paint (I would probably have kept it the original brown as the paint inside and in the engine bay is still good), maybe adjustable suspension and good wheels would be more than enough. Although I would've been buying it to drop my stroker in it!

Of course, if you really still find yourself lacking in inspiration for what to do with it, I'll be more than happy to take it off your hands!

Honestly I think I'll drop all the running gear, pull the engine and maybe source a 5 speed for it (shame I sold the one from my old Z!)
Strip and re under seal. Freshen up the engine and replace worn parts as and where needed. And get the car painted.
Using this as inspiration...
