Up for sale is my 1972 Datsun 240Z. This car is truly something special and the ONLY reason its up for sale now is because my parents are in some serious financial trouble due to hurricane sandy. They haven't been able to bounce back as soon as they have hoped especially with new issues arising with the house (joys of being a homeowner right?). So with that, on to the Z. It currently has an L28ET from an 1982 280ZX which runs great, compression test was done back in December I believe and it checked at 155psi in each cylinder (I was very surprised that it was so equal across all 6). Most of the swap work was done by the previous owner and anything that was not properly sorted out was corrected by Tidewater Z here in VA. At Tidewater Z the car was looked over by their mechanic/specialist with over 20 years of experience with Z's and he was blown away by the condition of the car. No rust issues, engine runs very smoothly, transmission and turbo run great with no issues. The car has been garaged by the previous owner and now myself as well. A lot of time (and $) has went into this car because I was preparing it to be with me for MANY years to come but unfortunately that won't happen. The car can be driven daily if you please but I drive it during good weather only. This car literally turns heads. It looks amazing. It recently won top pick at Springfest here in VA which was awesome since they had over 600 cars registered. It has new struts/springs/shocks (eibach), new alternator upgrade kit with new belt to deal with the proper voltage of the L28et, new exhaust with glass pack, new down pipe, all proper valve adjustments have been made, wheels have been properly CnC'd and balanced to fit (15x10.5). All lights work, interior was redone with new carpet in the rear, refurbished 15 gallon fuel tank installed with proper hoses so you have plenty of fuel for long road trips, new weatherstripping, new shifter bushings, new valve cover gasket, new braided steel lines for brakes (front brakes are from a Z31). Not sure what else to include but please feel free to ask. Again it has no issues with rust, not even in the notorious spots like near the battery or frame rails. This car was not intended to be sold at all but its keep it and watch my family struggle or sell it and actually help them. My mechanic has tried to talk me out of this as much as possible saying "you will probably never find a Z in as good condition as this ever again, especially with the L28ET" but family comes first. So here's your chance to own something special, I would love to sell this car to someone who can appreciate this car as much as I do. 

The only "problems/work" the car needs:
-Needs a fuel gauge 
-2 inch crack in front bumper (damaged in shipment, nothing awful but I was going to replace the bumper with the one that has vents if I was keeping her)
-no radio (if thats important to you, I had no plans of ever adding one)

Serious Inquiries ONLY, Please contact me for more pics or videos if you'd like. And Yes I actually do own this Z. Thanks for looking.

Nissan IDx Nismo and IDx Freeflow concepts are a bridge to the Datsun 510

Wed, 20 Nov 2013

We're not sure if someone from The Adjustment Bureau stopped by Nissan's PR department to explain the IDx Nismo and IDx Freeflow concepts, but the company's odd press release can't diminish our love for these two show favorites. We had been told to look out for an unnamed Datsun 510 BRE homage, and once we saw the brothers IDx, we knew we'd found them. But the press release doesn't mention anything about the Datsun 510 Brock Racing Enterprises, nor does it mention one Mr. Peter Brock, the man who won two Trans-Am championships in the Seventies for the nascent Japanese budget brand.
Instead, it declares that the cars were the result of a co-creation product development process with "digital natives," said natives being the whippersnappers born after 1990. Nissan says it worked with the young'uns to create two different expressions of "their desire for a basic, authentic configuration for a car." If that's true, it appears that what the kiddies really want are... two different homages to the Datsun 510 BRE that Peter Brock used to win two championships in the seventies for the nascent Japanese brand.
The IDx Freeflow - the "ID" is for "identification," the "x" is "the variable representing the new values and dreams born through communication" - takes the casual approach, with a light khaki exterior hue, a minimalist interior decked out in denim and a console shifter that works a continuously variable transmission. The IDx Nismo is out for blood, from its crimson interior to its five-point harness to its bolt-on flares and sidepipes. We aren't told what the digital natives requested for powerplants, but that's alright; if this is what "co-creation" looks like, we're not entirely against it except where that "CVT" is involved.

Nissan IDx 'in the plan' for production, needs support from fans [w/poll]

Wed, 15 Jan 2014

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."

Datsun expands low-cost revival with new Mi-Do in Moscow [w/video]

Fri, 29 Aug 2014

Those who were disappointed when Datsun changed its name to Nissan over three decades ago may have been pleased to see the marque revived last year, even as a budget brand. Nissan's counterpart to its ally Renault's Dacia budget brand, Datsun has been steadily expanding its lineup of low-cost transportation for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback in India, the Go+ minivan in Indonesia and the On-Do sedan in Russia. And now it has returned to Moscow to reveal its fourth model, the Mi-Do.
Based closely on the On-Do sedan (which itself is based on the Lada Granta) the Mi-Do takes on a five-door hatchback bodystyle but with no more frills. It uses the same front-drive chassis with the same wheelbase as the sedan, but its chopped tail makes it a good foot and a half shorter overall. Into that compact shape, Datsun has fitted dual airbags, ABS and... well, that's about it. It's got a 1.6-liter, eight-valve inline-four kicking out a grand total of 87 horsepower to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Bare bones, this is.
While delivery of the first On-Do sedans commences next month (with the first example going to an IT specialist in Omsk), the Mi-Do is set to begin delivery early next year. Scope out the video and press release below from the Mi-Do's reveal at the Moscow Motor Show.
