    Well I have been busy these past few months saving up and buying bits and putting them away and selling bits and scotching on a weekend to pay for my Dream :)

    I had a Z mate called Steve stonehouse went over to buybsome Z bits for his project, while he was there he got offered a 240z that was for sale but had not been advertised yet. He messaged me that day and showed me photos and said here bloke number organise to go and view it :)

    So weekend came and I had a real think and fort why not.lets go.over and see it :)

    Well well who would of fort it I bid him a offer of 4.5k and he took it, was happy for me to pay 1k up front and work the rest out you have few months to sort out rest cash :) really really sound bloke Colin Dixon from Blackpool way really was happy for me to.buy it

    So On Saturday just gone it came home :) over the moon I have bought my own 240z to Rhd and Modify to my heart content :) really looking forward to it

    Looks like a steal for 4.5k - I'm guessing it needs some rust work from the sill?

    It came without a bonnet but I have the bonnet of the 260z I stripped for Rhd parts this year

    So now we have Projects Dixie and Daisy!

    As I've said to you, given your trade, you are more than capable of sorting this car's issues out; while some DIYers would be taking on a bit much or facing steep pro bills, you'll be able to sort everything from metalwork to final paint in a rather cost-effective manner!
