    I've been looking for a aftermarket steering wheels for my 280zx, but I'm trying to figure out if a 280z hub is the same as a 280zx wheel hub. Other than that just wondering what others have done with wheels and which ones ya'll personally like. Thank you for any information given.

Initially I thought "great! easy part to swap out", until I found out they're impossible to find for a 78. Looking around the...

It fits just like the original and all I had to do was take the plate off the original(2 point) distributer. I did not...

    Hi there, I recently picked up a 77’ 280z coupe and it seems to have been pretty well taken care of, only there have been a few wiring mods, and there is a crack in the lead joint at rear hatch. at the moment I’m trying to pin point why the front side marker lights don’t work, I’ve cleaned the...

    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...

    Recently bought a project 280z, for the first week it wasn’t having any issues idling.

I didn’t do much...
