I know there's another thread that kjk made (I think) about this guy who's redoing a 240z from the ground up.

But I thought this should be rehashed since new vids are up (after about a year of silence).

The Videos

the associated forum *some of it is in norweigan (i think) so don't expect to read all of it.

pretty sweet stuff.

They let us play with markers, but i keep trying to draw infinity

ahh, the old Datsun's. My friend's brother got an old 280ZX that he restored. Had it all painted up nice in a nice burnt amber kind of color. Took it out one spring after sitting all winter springfield while he was at Mizzou, and ended up hitting a dear with it. He'd had plans to get the turbo setup put into it, but after hitting the deer, i guess he lost motivation, so he sold it. Anyway, his brother (my friend) bought a 280Z and got it all painted up to restore only to find that the original engine had thrown a rod and blew a hole in the cylinder wall. So what do you do with an old 280Z with no engine? put a chevy 350 in it of course! so he got that project started, which inspired his roommate to get one too (but a 260Z i believe). So the two of them were making Chevy 350 V8 Z's. His roommate was a grad student and had more money and time to throw at his, so he got his done first and it still works while he moved out to Colorado. Anyway, my friend got too busy with school to finish his so he sold it to me and i'm finishing it up. It's sitting in my garage back home with the engine and all mounted it, just needs driveshaft, exhaust, wiring in the lights, misc little odds and ends and it'll be good to go. If i remember, i may put up pictures later.
