YOU ARE BIDDING ON MY ONLY MODIFIED 240Z IN THE Z MECCA COLLECTION. I AM SAD TO SAY THIS CAR MUST GO AS I JUST ACQUIRED ANOTHER LOW VIN NUMBER 1969 PRODUCTION CAR AND I JUST DON'T HAVE THE ROOM TO KEEP THEM BOTH. THIS RUST FREE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CAR WAS BUILT IN THE LATE 80'S. IT ONLY HAD TWO OWNERS SINCE THE FERRARI CONVERTIBLE CONVERSION WAS COMPLETED. I ACQUIRED THE CAR IN 2001 FROM A MARINE STATIONED AT CAMP PENDLETON AND DECIDED TO BUILD A HIGHLY MODIFIED POWERHOUSE WITH ALL THE COOL BELLS AND WHISTLES. MOTOR HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REBUILT, BALANCED AND PORTED, FITTED WITH CUSTOM T3/4 TURBO, INTERCOOLER, CRANK SENSOR, ELECTROMOTIVE TECH 3 FUEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, 100 PSI BOSCH FUEL PUMP, CUSTOM BILLET FUEL RAIL, HIGH VOLUMN INJECTORS, MSD PLUG WIRES, CUSTOM PUCK CLUTCH DISC AND PRESSURE PLATE, AND 3 INCH CUSTOM ALL STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST. IT'S PULLED BY A ZX 5 SPEED AND ZX R200 3.5 GEAR RATION REAR END. THIS MONSTER PRODUCES A CONSERVATIVE 300 HP AT THE WHEELS AT 12 PSI. A FEW OF MY CRAZY TURBO Z FRIENDS PUSHED ME TO BOOST TO 20 PSI TO SEE WHAT THIS BEAST WOULD DO BUT I AM AT THE AGE WHERE I AM NO LONGER INVINSIBLE AND HAVE NO DESIRE TO CRASH AND BURN. THIS CAR IS SCARY ENOUGH AND I WARN THE WINNER OF THIS AUCTION TO PLEASE BE CAREFUL. IT WILL KILL YOU IF YOU ARE NOT AN AVID DRIVER.
CAR COMES WITH A BLACK CANVASS TOP THAT SNAPS INTO PLACE. TOP IS IN LIKE NEW CONDITION AS ALL THE PREVIOUS OWNERS INCLUDING ME ONLY DROVE THE CAR DURING THE NICEST WEATHER. INTERIOR OF CAR COMES WITH NEW PIONEER AM/FM CD PLAYER AND NEW 6X9 SPEAKERS AND TWO TWEETERS. DASH WAS REPLACED BRAND NEW AND DYED TAN AT TIME OF CONVERSION AND IS STILL CRACK FREE.
CAR IS BEING OFFERED WITH NO RESERVE. $1000 DEPOSIT VIA PAY PAL DUE IN 48 HRS. BALANCE DUE 7 DAYS AT CLOSE OF AUCTION VIA CASH OR WIRE TRANSFER ONLY. BIDDERS ON EAST COAST CAN USE MY PRIVATE SHIPPER FOR TRANSPORTING CAR. CONTACT HUGH SHILLITO AT 1-828-461-0700 FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE.

If there's a trend in the auto industry we can firmly get behind, it's the small, light and affordable rear-drive coupe. The positive critical reception to the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins has encouraged other manufacturers to look at building their own rear drivers, and even a few to show actual concept cars based on the idea. The Chevrolet Code 130R from 2012 and more recently, the Nissan IDx twins that were first shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show both come to mind, as does the brand-new Kia GT4 Stinger Concept.

Nissan trotted out the IDx Nismo and the IDx Freeflow for another showing in Detroit and we'll admit to being totally smitten with both cars. Again. The duo draw inspiration from the iconic Datsun 510, a lightweight, affordable rear-driver that remains a cult favorite decades after production ended.
Now, a report from our friends at AutoWeek reveals that we may, possibly, hopefully see a production IDx, provided fans make a strong enough case for it. "It's in the plan," Nissan product boss Andy Palmer told AW. According to the report, Palmer said the IDx is "into the first sage of the development process. The next stage is project validation and then looking at the business case. It's no one's intent to waste millions of the company's money, so obviously we have a good feeling about this one."
A few weeks ago, we bid a fond happy 40th anniversary to the automotive dark ages of 1973-84 that have come to be known as "The Malaise Era" - the performance ice-age when 160 horsepower was a lot and a 0-60 time of under 10 seconds was remarkable. Like music in the 1980s, everything in automobiledom didn't suck, however. There were a few bright spots. Here are five of our favorites:

Nissan's Datsun nameplate revival will begin with two models bound for the Indian market. Nissan has released sketches of a five-door hatchback based on the Micra (codenamed K2) and a top-down view of a hood that could potentially be from a sedan.
The company's press release says all will be revealed on July 15 in New Delhi, India. The Datsun lineup will be first offered in 2014 to that country's ride-deprived residents as well as Indonesia and Russia. Later in 2014, South Africa will join the list.
We've heard Nissan plans for Datsuns to share platforms with company-owned Lada. In January, we heard the projected price tag could be around $3,000 USD to compete with Chinese imports. The official press release (which can be read in full below) says nothing about either of these reports, however.
