Roof Rack for Sale

The recent 71 2 door that I acquired came with many lovely features, but this is not one of them. The roof rack is just not me. I feel obliged to let it go to a better home rather than recycle it. It's not in pristine shape, I'm sure it's carried it's fair share of 2x4's, luggage, Xmas trees and the...

Holley 350 two barrel and Offenhauser Dual Port Manifold for sale

My recently aquired 71 2 door came with an carb and manifold setup I chose not to keep. It's a Holley 2 barrel and a dual port Offenhauser manifold. I cleaned up the manifold (bead blast and high heat silver paint), and scrubbed the carb a bit. It was working on the L20B that is in the car, but it w...

Re: Yokohama bringing back a classic

I've seen this coming up in several forums. One alluded to Japan only at the moment but will be available through other dealers eventually. I'd love to get some decent 13"s to go on some period wheels I have for the next 510 project, and some 14's for a Z project, again with great period wheels...

Re: WARNING about Hagerty insurance

So, with this information, the only wise action is to NEVER use insurance for something you can pay for out of pocket. Even though they cleverly sell you glass coverage, never claim it for the reasons above. In fact, remove it if you can to lower your premium. Insurance at its most basic and origina...

Re: Metric Fasteners

Bolt Supply House, Lowes, Fastenal, and several industrial supply houses in Calgary have Metric fasteners.

If you want JIS standard hardware, belmetric and clipsandfasteners.com seem to be pretty good

Re: 280ZX Brake calipers sourcing problems

Disturbing news indeed.

I recently bought a pair from RockAuto, A1Cardone brand, 19-154 and 19-155. Now I look and they are gone. They do show Raybestos and Beck/Arnley still.

I couldn't find any in Canada, other than being helped by Ross Mullen who found me a pair at Lordco in Surrey.

Re: JCCS in Long Beach

There is just SO many cars there, how do you look at them all properly and appreciate the workmanship and soak up all the ideas for new things you see? Gotta go next year and try my best to do it all

Re: Speed Sensor (VSS) for 4 Speed Transmission

That Martin crawler thing is a fantastic solution for more than just speedo drive. EMS speed input, cruise control etc etc etc.. I'm gettin' one! $49?? Cheeeepppp

The Speedhut GPS solution is the best way to solve ohenny's problem assuming the old one is returnable of course.

Re: 2.3L of fun

SS brake lines make nice clutch hoses... The 510/280zx one that has a male on one end and a female on the other? Trim a bit off the length of the male end if it bottoms out, add a copper crush washer, done. Take that you crappy rubber hydraulic lines, POW!

Re: All Japanese Classic '17 - Vancouver BC Aug 27

I just remembered to register this morning! Been planning on coming for months. Just woke up apparently.
Thanks for putting on this show again, I know it will be a grand success.

Should be there in the 510 unless someone out there wants to buy my Z!
