Re: 2 Since 96

I have had two 280zx's.My first one was a 81 280zx na bought from a friend that sold it two me because he thought that the rear end was going out,But it turned out that was just the mounts.I slung off the balancer and it messed up the end of the crank.I am in the process of putting a crank in it.

I have bought a 82 280zxt last November from Vermount(I live in Georgia)it has 63,000 miles on it and is near perfect.I plan on making it faster and entering local state car shows like NOPI.

I have also wondered how many z's the people here have too.

I have 4 z's,
My 1st-83 N/A ZX (headers, tokico springs, kyb struts, header, custom exhaust, New engine I built, K&N, Ployurethane bushings, 1 1/8 front sway bar, Center Force, SS brake lines, and much more...), Have had for three years. Love it, drive it daily.
2nd- 70 240z, not driving it, but in good shape, gonna restore it later.
3rd- 72 240z, got with 70, all original in great shape. Gonna do something special to it later, working on engine right now, have all poly bushings, 5-speed, 3:90 R200, complete black interior, header, FI, and otehr things for it, just gotta find time to put these on.
4th- Just got 74 260z in good shape. Gonna be my race car later, they are building a race track here finally.

I also have tons of other parts in my apartment, as well as two extra engines, an F54 and an earlier L28.
Sorry this is so long, I get really interested in what others have in their car as well.

Just imagine what happens when I get out of college and have more time to work on my cars:)

Three, and I still have all of them: a '75, an '82 Turbo and an '82 N/A. The last one is a wrecked parts car for the turbo.

Too many Z's! I have had 15 real Z's since 90'.
1-71,1-76,10 - 79' to 83's and 3 first gen 300's. I currently have 6. Three for sale,and 3 keepers one 82 2+2 (the original one that started it all), an 83 turbo modified, and a 76 that I just cant seem to get the time to finish. I have parted out too many to count. It seems as if everyone I meet that has/had one, has had more than one.

My first car I ever bought (not counting the 80 T-bird someone 'gave' to me) was a 78 280z that had a blown engine. Swaped engines, drove it for about a year when I was 18, sold it when I got married and left for the Army. 7 Years later, I just got my 2nd one, a 80 280zx for 1200 bucks that I found in the paper while looking for a cheap sentra to drive back and forth to work. Now my wife is wondering what I am doing spening hundreds of dollars on a 19 year old car that was orginally supposed to be just 'temporary transportation'.

I've owned 4. Had 2 78Z's, an 81ZX, and a 90ZXTT. Now I'm Z-less!! Looking for another one. This time I don't want to have to restore one. I want one that one of you guys has put all the loving hours in and will never get out what you put into it! Been there done that....no T-shirt though!

On my seventh Z!

Here they are in order:

'82 turbo
'86 turbo
'90 base model
'82 turbo
'93 convertible
'88 turbo
'83 turbo

My favorite was my 1st one -- a blue and silver '82 turbo. The '83 turbo I have now is great (it only has 16K on it), but the jade gray is not quite as breathtaking as the blue and silver. But as far as performance is concerned, the 90-96 body style is wonderful. I liked all the versions for different reasons.
