Here is a listing for a nice little 35 year old sports car. I bought this vehicle about 6 months ago out of a shed in Florida. Brought it back to life and is ready for a good home. I have listed some before pictures so you can see how much work has been done. She runs and drives good. The five speed shifts well and the motor starts right up. Clena Florida title. Here is a list of what has been restored.


New floor pans, carpets,seats,headliner,dash cover, visors, window cranks, all trim panels, shifter and boot, ebrake boot, 1200watt boss audio mp3 stereo w 12"sub

Turn signal and headlight stalks, steering column trim, cig lighter, hood release, pedal kit, door locks that all work with keys. basically the entire interior.


Plugs,wires,coil, cold air kit, tstat, radiator hoses, flushed system, cap, heater houses, oil, filter, timing chain looks new(pic) fuel filter,pump. Battery tray.


Master cylinder, front callipers, pads, rear drums have new pistons and springs.


Body kit, Bre spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper detail, front valance, fiberglass hood, side mirrors, All glass removed and new rubber all the way around, wipers, emblems, some of the chrome(drip rails, quarter glass, front windshield chrome and rear hatch glass chrome) rest is original. custom built grill(from fairlady) 4 new 16x8 rota look alike rims. Nexen 225 in rear and 215 potenzas in front(70% life). 1" aluminum  hubcentric spacers all the way around for wider stance and rim offset. Monza exhaust tip. New paint, Eastwood single stage urethane. I give it a B+ looks awesome from 5 feet and even better in pics. Smooth as glass. However the flake pattern is a little off in some spots. not noticable unless your looking for it. I have about 8oz left that i will include for touch ups as needed.

Heres a few other general description items. I have only driven it a few times but here is what I know. Starts first try everytime even cold. Drives straight but at about 45mph there is a slight vibration you can feel in the steering wheel. Maybe just a tire balance issue. The steering is tight with no play. Shifts smoothly through all gears and reverse. However 2nd has a faint buzzing sound initially then goes away. Needs an e brake cable. It worked till a few weeks ago until cable broke at driver side drum. 60$ part. I may just fix it. Headlights high and low beams , tail lights, running lights, brake lights, hazards all work, blinkers are on the "blink", It may be the relay.20$. I replaced all bulbs also. license plate lights work, , map light works, dash lights work, dome does not, Tach, speedo,odometer,clock, oil pressure, battery gadges all work. Fuel gadge does not. Wipers arms and blades are new. The wiper motor comes on with the switch but they dont move without help. Rain X may be the ticket.  I will include 17x11 color wiring diagram and complete Hanes manual. All the glass is original so it does have some wear. There is a small chip in passenger side of windshield low by dash. Not in line of sight. Heater and blower work. Was not equipped with ac. 98% of the rust has been replaced. There is a spot on front cross member and on the inside of passenger side frame tunnel. I couldnt get to it with only a floor jack. Basically it is not a concourse car. It is 35 years old and still needs a few tweeks. If you leave it as is it would still be an awesome Z to have. I have tried to describe this Z to the best of my knowledge. If you have any questions please send them to me. I will also deliver for free within 200 miles of 32137 as I have a flatbed trailer to haul it. After payment ofcourse.

Datsun to unveil second model later this month

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 14:37:00 EST

Datsun, Nissan's new sub-brand for emerging markets, has announced plans to unveil its second model. Its first, the Go, was unveiled almost two months ago, and promised affordable, connected motoring for five in a handsome hatchback body. Datsun is following that up with a pair of new models for Indonesia.
The first of these two new vehicles will be shown on September 17 in Jakarta, eschewing the typical auto show debut. It's targeted at so-called "risers," the nickname for a group of highly aspirational customers in the Indonesian market. Datsun developed it locally with help from Nissan, and it'll cost under 100 million Indonesian rupiah (about $8,900 at today's rates).
We'll have the full boatload of information on the newest member of the Datsun family when it debuts on September 17. Scroll on to read the full press release from Datsun.

Datsun debuts new seven-seat Go+ in Indonesia [w/video]

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 08:27:00 EST

The Datsun name may have long since been replaced by Nissan, but the old brand is making a comeback - in certain markets, at least. Nissan relaunched the Datsun brand in July as its new budget brand for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback, and has now followed up with the addition of the larger Go+.
Set to be built in Indonesia at Nissan's plant in Purwakarta, the Go+ debuts today in the capital of Jakarta as the second model in the new Datsun lineup. The seven-passenger minivan features flexible seating in a compact form 13 feet long, powered by an unspecified 1.2-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
Nissan isn't saying much else about the model, but hopes the new Datsun twins will account for half of its sales in Indonesia within three years. The low price target for both models - set to come in at less than 100 million rupiah ($8,700) - ought to help it get there. The lineup is then scheduled to reach other markets, starting with India, Russia and South Africa next year.

Datsun reveals new On-Do budget sedan in Russia [w/video]

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 07:59:00 EST

When Nissan revived the Datsun brand name, it essentially hit the "undo" button on the rebranding it undertook decades ago. But this time, the Datsun name is being used solely as a budget brand for developing markets. The reborn marque launched in India this past July with its Go hatchback, returned in September with the Go+ minivan and revealed the Redi-Go concept just last month. And now it's back again with the new On-Do sedan.
Launched in Moscow by CEO Carlos Ghosn, the On-Do was designed and engineered in Japan specifically for the Russian market - Nissan's fifth largest worldwide - where it will be built at the AvtoVaz plant in Togliatti. Decidedly budget-oriented, the Datsun On-Do is a four-door, five-seat econo-box measuring 172 inches long, 67 inches wide and 60 inches tall with an 18.7 cubic-foot trunk which Datsun describes as class-leading. Punctuating an otherwise bland shape is a large front grille and lighting front and rear that looks (and very well might be) bigger than the wheels.
Not that the Datsun On-Do needs a big contact patch to transfer power to the road: motivation is provided by a 1.6-liter engine with a grand total of - wait for it... wait a little longer - 87 horsepower. Which might strike you as a reasonable amount of muscle, considering the 400,000 rubles Datsun is getting for the On-Do (but consider that translates to about $11,300). That's a couple grand more than what Nissan gets for the Micra in that other giant northern country, or about the same amount it gets for the Versa in the US (which sells in Russia for 499k in rubles) - both of which are powered by what is in all likelihood the same 1.6-liter four but producing 109 hp. Of course Russia has different tax rates than the United States or Canada, but with such little power, the Datsun would fall into Russia's lowest tax bracket.
