1972 Datsun 240Z run. (One last good time before I sold it)
Right before I sold it...
Clicking noise is a leak in the balancing tube (welded day after this video) Some sloppy shifts due to slack in the rear end and un-adjusted clutch with cracked clutch arm bracket.
I loved/love this car! So much fun to drive...
My Datsun 260z IS SICK # 1
The first in a series of three videos! Take a look at my 1974 Datsun 260z.
It sat in a garage for over 25 years,now is seized from sitting for so long.
I've cleaned and polished a few things so far and on Jan 1st i'll be pulling the motor to do a complete rebuild. So if you have a Z car or have a liking for them let me know i'm always interested in why people like to restore older classics cars and motors of any type.
I will continue posting so you can see the progress. :)
Your comments are appreciated and i'll try to be a little more animated.

Dusty's datsun does a nice smokey burnout coming into the shop, the 295 tires lit up easily. turbo 6cyl, roughly 350whp.
Datsun 260Z 1974 1/2
This is my dads 1974.5(big bumper model)260Z. This Z has been repainted the factory 305 Lt. Blue Metallic and a restored interior including the factory AM/FM radio with power Antenna. It has the nummers matching engine with Webber DVG's, Monza Exaust, and a 5-speed from a 280Z. I have done so much work on my dads 260 that i have bought myself a 1972 240Z that I am currently working to restore. The quality isn't that great, shot with my Kodak Easyshare camera.
Ray's 1974 Datsun 260Z RB25DET MegaSquirt MS1/E-029v
I installed Megasquirt on Ray's car (MS1/E-029v code to be specific), wired the instruments, and rewired almost the whole bloody car! The car runs awesome, looks awesome, and won 1st place in "Modified Z-car" at the 2007 All Datsun/Nissan Meet in Vancouver. While I researched how to hook up the RB25DET, Ray did all of the mechanical install of the motor, fab work for the Intercooler and Exhaust, and prepared all of the typically numerous other little things that take time and attention.
The audio track came from Brant Bjork's fantastic album Jalamanta (NLA & OOP), so go BUY yourself some of Brant's finely crafted music...
