Project Z

I think everyone has experienced this feeling before. Light slowly filters through your eyelids as you wake up and hazy thoughts slowly start to seep into your mind, and suddenly it hits you. That realisation that something amazing happened yesterday, and no - it wasn't all a dream.

This is exactly how I felt this morning when I woke up and realized that there was a f*cking bad-ass Datsun 280Z in my garage, and I was the owner of it.



Today I am in Wellington at Speedtech Motorsport, where Andre is putting the Z on the dyno to check if the air/fuel ratio is safe before we head back to Auckland. The car is clearly in need of a bit of attention, but that is what I find most appealing about it. The challenge of taking this beautiful, classic S30 chassis and helping it reach its full potential. I can't wait to share more on here, and it's going to be AWESOME!



Welcome, Project Z.

  5. I'm seriously way excited for you! CONGRATS!!!! I've been avoiding those vintage Z's because I'm way tempted, but I'm pretty good at keeping focus for my next girl.... (At least 6 months out yet, but a 3.2 Carrera is my next. <3)

    Hope you don't mind if I live vicariously through you, again. ;)

  8. Thank-you for your comments guys! The MX-5 is staying with me for the rest of this year at least. As for the wheels, the main issue is shipping as it is so damn expensive to NZ. I guess we will see what happens :D
