    Hello,

    Been lurking for a while, but only created an account the other week because I'm thinking more seriously about S30 ownership and the people here are a great resource of information.

    I've always liked 240/260/280z cars and will probably be adding a 'wanted' post to the classifieds soon.

    This is my 350z of 4 years. Fairly standard appearance but some subtle mods elsewhere:

    Here she is with a nice Lotus Cortina. I managed to track down the current owner and for a day, reunited the car with my dad who owned it 45 years prior:

    Welcome!

    That is a very clean 350!

    If my daily wasn't required as a tow car I'd go for a 350. Or, if I had the space.

    I liked my 350.

    Cortina - see pic me on right (my cousin is tall). Taken during infamous snowy 1971 RAC Rally.

    Could it be the same car as your Dad's?

    Could always swap mine for the one pictured in your avatar ;)

    Yep, MK1 or 2 Lotus Cortina looks like.

    In your dreams!

    Both are Mk2s. The Mk1 was a Lotus Cortina, the Mk2 was a Ford Cortina Lotus. Yes, I am pedant!

    As an aside, the earlier ones had the 4 aux gauges in a raised centre section of the dash, the later ones had them below the top edge of the dash, same with the 1600E.

    Yep, my dad's was a MK2 (1968 IIRC) with the 4 center gauges on top of the dash.

    I know. What I meant was could it be the same actual car? Even has the reversing light.
