1970 Datsun 240Z 2.4 inline 6
Best investment I've ever made
Replaced the radiator.
Replaced the brake hoses.
Replaced spark plugs and distributor wires.
Also replaced the points in the distributor with pertronix and replaced the coil with a pertronix flame thrower coil.
Interior is pretty well maintained, dash is cracked which is pretty common and the seats are pretty worn in.
A slight bit of rust on the passenger front fender.
New 205/60r14 tires.
I bought my Z for a mere $2,000 dollars. I got a good deal on it because it was a friend of the family's. It was sitting in his garage for 8 years, it had a few problems, but nothing too big. When I bought it I kept it in my garage and worked on to get it in running condition for about 2 or 3 months. I replaced a few of the major things (ie. radiator, brake hoses, tires). and added a few of my own touches front strut bar, pertronix, flame thrower coil, and a few others as well. Its also funny because people are surprised that a girl drives this car, I get a lot of people wanting to race me.
Too sum things up this car has definitly been worth the money that I've put into it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Good luck with your Z! I've wanted one since I was a kid back in the '70s. It still looks gorgeous and way better than the 350Z.

Haha! People are surprised because you rarely see women driving these cars. There should be more that drive them... many more ;). Have fun and keep the faith; these cars are only getting more and more rare.
