Re: You Like This 240Z?

Nope, don't like it. I'd prefer normal sized tires and eliminate those ridiculous fender flares that look like they belong on a Jeep.

Re: You Like This 240Z?

I like it although like you said, I wouldn't want a car that low. Still, I like the general idea of the car. Does it have anything special under the hood? It doesn't look like much from the pictures but that's the whole point of the car.

Re: You Like This 240Z?

No, I don't like it. Everything about it is..... just awful. The paint doesn't match. It sits too low to be driveable. They couldn't even find the time to put an airfilter on the rear carb. What a piece of crap.

Re: You Like This 240Z?

Actually that car can be raised to just below stock height for driving around. As to the flares those are just the ZG flares that are common for these cars. I believe that is a 3.1 stroker as well (cant really remember).

Re: You Like This 240Z?

I dont like the stretched tires, I've always thought that was stupid. It's too low. I'm not a fan of the "I want to purposly make it look like it was cobbled together" drifter look either.

I like flares, I like the interior.

No

It's not a sleeper, you can tell things have been modified, so is the goal an industrial look? Otherwise it just looks like anybody else's unfinished car that has been put together with parts from numerous cars. The camber plate install, has a lot to be desired. He must really be worried about getting towed.
The interior I would like to have though.

[img_assist|nid=891556|title=Low Z|desc=It's now riding about a 1/2 inch lower since this picture was taken. The front rocker is at 5.5 and the rear at 5.75 with the 6-qt oil pan just 3.5 inches off the ground. Not as low as the slammed car shown above but low enough to understand what it takes to keep it this low in the way of wear and tear on both the car and me.|link=node|align=left|width=512|height=341]
