It's been asleep for over 25yrs, and survived somewhat (not counting the rust), so I figure it's earn't the dignity of staying true to original.
Thus I decided there should be no blaspheming with this car... LOL!

Besides, the 80's AIT turbo conversion is waaaay cool! (well it will be, when it works properly again).

The unshamedly 80's decals, the twin point Mallory Ignition system...
I could never get rid of that stuff. :P

What's wrong with them?

Authorities have outlawed that type of wheel due to them looking really shit

Popular period pieces were kidney beans or Hotwires.

Bathurst Globes or Sprintmasters look good on anything pre-90 too.

Or just some nice steelies with dress rims and centre caps.

Anything but what's on there..... please!

A good 260z will still command decent coin. 240z's are off the chart. A couple of mates own them. One mate has a decent one & passed up an offer of 45k. Another mate has a really decent one & passed up 60K!!

Yeah I could always do Minilites,
but I dunno about hacking up the wheel arches to fit flares...

I have an original tyre, still on the spare wheel too - it's a Uniroyal 195/70/14! :)

So, I've been binging on Z exhaust clips on youtube...

260z for Free, has a 'Twice Pipe' (just learn't they're called on Zed's) dual exhaust system front to back, with a ridiculously oversized looking 4 inch downpipe from the turbo.

Once it's running again properly, this is pretty much what the exhaust should sound like,
except with a hint of turbo whistle overtone... :P
 

 

Twice Pipes for dayZ... :P
