This is a nicely done Custom 280Z V8 conversion in really nice, low mile restored condition. Classic Z car has been
professionally converted and customized... ready for daily driver, cruises, or local shows. All the custom work
including body, interior, drivetrain, and suspension have been redone professionally. This Z is great all around.
Looks, runs, feels, and drives awesome... FAST and smooth. Excellent weekend cruiser, daily driver, or addition to
any collection.
Body is straight with no rust or collision damage that I can see. Fit and finish are very nice. Driver quality
custom repaint presents beautifully with minor blemishes. Seams and rubbers are great. Underside is clean with
original undercoating. This is a driver!!
Interior is in nice condition as well. Panels, carpet, and headliner all look great...Custom seats fit and feel
great. Dash has a nice cover. Fully insulated, feels quiet and tight. Electronics work properly. Custom tach
installed... speedo not hooked up but I'll try to take care of that this week.
BEST PART... rebuilt chevy 350 V8 Motor starts, runs, and idles excellent... performance enhancements but built for
daily driver relaiability, Super responsive and nicely tuned. Rebuilt 3 speed Auto Trans shifts smooth through the
gears. Car has great street manners and is FAST!!!... Super fun to drive!! Sounds mean but not obnoxious through
custom exhaust. Suspension feels tight and handles excellent. Goes down the road straight with no wiggles,
shimmies, or shakes... Stops straight and sure. EXCELLENT, FAST driver.
Overall this is a Super nice Custom Z in great condition all around... it is extremely well preserved. Awesome
weekend cruiser, show car, or addition to any collection. I am a Z collector... this is a great one for any Z car
enthusiast, collector, or anyone looking for a cool, original vintage sports car at a great price.

First new Datsun in decade sketched, set for Indian reveal

Mon, 01 Jul 2013

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.

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.

Renault planning a Tata Nano rival. Again.

Wed, 28 Nov 2012

Four years ago, Renault confirmed that it would partner with India's Bajaj Auto to develop a rival to the Tata Nano. At the time, as everyone waited for the Tata Nano to arrive, you could have used a Richter scale to measure the tremors the executive suites of any automaker with an interest in the low end of emerging markets. Then the Nano, still the cheapest car in the world, didn't sell so well - at the end of last year its sales were just six percent of its most conservative projections - and everyone seemed content to let Tata spend the money to figure out if there really was a market for the cheapest car in the world.
Renault believes there is, kind of. Automotive News Europe reports that it will partner with Nissan to build two low-priced cars for emerging markets, one for €3,000 ($3,888 U.S.) and another for €5,000 ($6,400 U.S.). The price of the least expensive offering is nearly $1,400 more than a Nano, which costs $2,500, and that can't be considered a small sum in comparison. But one of the hindsight knocks on the Nano has been that even in emerging markets buyers don't want a car whose biggest lure is that it is cheap; they'd rather give their aspirations a bit more of a workout.
Renault's offerings are scheduled to hit the non-Western market in late 2014, which is coincidentally the same year that will see the return of the budget-minded and emerging-market-specific Datsun nameplate. They'll be built in Renault facilities in Chennai, India, with no mention made of Bajaj this time around.
