    Hi! I have a -73 240z with a clunk in the rear left. I figured it was the U-joints since I could turn the half shaft a little. However, the U-joints in the half shaft turned out to be perfectly fine. It is instead freely moving further in, against the diff connection AND out at the hub axle...

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for some opinions as to weather or not this 240Z is worth the trouble (or even possible). With prices skyrocketing in just the last 5 years I know I need to get my piece of the pie now while the gettin is good and before all the attainable ones are gone...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the Z scene and I really like the 280zx. I was wondering how much hp this block can handle without serious modification. While I do plan on using a forced induction system, I don't plan to use a lot of boost. I want to build the car to at least keep up with my buddy's 370z...
