Really?
So, I have to ask ... Too much time or too much money?

well...neither...I actually got a 2 for 1 deal...so I could not pass it up. The guy was selling both 73 240z's as a pair only(the brown one and a blue one). The blue one was disassembled but in great shape. I would never have time or patience to put the blue one back together, so it went to my co worker who is storing them at his place. I could not pass this deal up. I got both for a total of $2000. The deal included an extra L28, 280z 5spd, r200 diff, 280z dif, 4 barrel carb manifold...

Looks like fun.

One I will build for me and the other to sell...just don't know which one...

the White 72 is an early Z so it is a bit more sought after and should be kept close to stock, but it has more aftermarket goodies.

the brown 73 I could a little more wild with, but it needs the most work...especially the body.

either way they both will sit for another while our house gets built then I will have a dedicated space to work on them.

I LOVE seeing the old Z's out on the road. It shows you really how much cars have grown over time and those Z's are TINY compared to everything out on the road!

Good luck with the build :)

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.
