Hi guys,

It seems that the UK Z31 scene is on its knees so I thought that we could help each other out with some inspiration... I could really use some...

... even kicking it off with a 2+2!

I wish I could find a nice facelift Turbo to buy Matt . There just doesn't seem to be any left now.

Hi Racer, Maybe get the best example you can find regardless of motor and transmission and build it into whatever you fancy.

Mine started off as an NA auto but I did a manual swap on it and I'm now building a VG33ET.

Getting a good car is the hard bit... the rest is relatively interchangeable. :thumbs:

After having sold my black Z31, I would quite like another, cleaner shell would be nice but this would be a project later down the line, have to finish all my others first lol. keep going these cars are very under rated.

Nice one Matt, always great to see Z31 pics. Don't want to crash your thread, but it would be nice to start one for zclub members to post their cars and see who is still around and what they have. Went to a few car shows this year and didn't see any Z31's and can't remember the last time saw one on the road. Hoping to have mine on the road for 2016, even if the body will still look shabby. Here is mine and one for aspiration.....

I'd love to import one from Japan, some very clean cars and really like the ZR spec - especially the interior.

... that's pretty much the dream isn't it... RHD, RB powered, two seater... get it over and drop an RB26DETT in there.

... not that there is anything wrong with the VG though, of course.
