    Hi new member to the forum and working on a zed. im newish my mum(Simone Hoy) used to be a member and use to take me to meets in the early 2000s but after moving from kent and losing the ability to store her 260z we didnt have a Z in our family. So jan of this year i gave into my urges after spending months of looking online at 280z/zx i went and got my 81 280zx 2+2. rough the around the edges which i knew was coming due to a 40ish old car that havent been looked after besides a new radiator and fuel filter.

    I'm currently re building the engine as it had a cooling issues due to a failing waterpump and the lack of anyflushes of the cooling system it built up rust and the overheating of the engine. today ive taken the block and head both N42 and crank to be tested and to bore the block to 87mm so waiting for the block to come back in the new year when i would start to buy parts for the engine. Body wise shes pretty sound but underneath needs small bits of welding and just needs alot of tlc but my main plan is to get her running as an nearly everyday runner and to get to silverstone classic with my own car. my 280zx.jpg

    Hello and welcome! Nice to see another 280ZX. It looks to be in pretty good shape from your photos. As Jon has said, that book is well worth getting a copy of. Lots of good info in it.

    Look forward to seeing you at Silverstone and maybe a few other events in the new year.
