If you need manauls, you can find them, maybe, on eBay.
Don't own one yet, still in high school, and I have an Astro van. Insurance is too high and no parents to help me out, so I have to wait. Plan to get one when I get out of college or when the van fails, and am going to beef it up with all the high performance parts I can lay my hands on! Haha, maybe even lower a V8 with a turbo under the hood. Won't that surprise a young hoodlum in his parents newly bought Ferrari! :) Haha.
Enjoy the car, I will soon be in the ranks too.

I have a 1980 Datsun 280ZX Brand new black gloss paint and a few tweaked out parts I love it its very quick for a 2.8. I can't afford all the performance parts yet because I'm still in high school, but I'm working on a new exhaust system and whatnot they are pretty reliable cars and way more rare than a Chevelle or Camero that's why I like it so much.

Hi guys I just bought a 1982 Datsun 280zx turbo for 1000!
It has a few problems- no spark (needs new coil) and some of the accessories don't work, but as soon as I get my drivers licence and some money for a coil (Dairy queen can't pay for everything) I will be on the road.

Whats up I just bought a 280zx not to long ago and its one of the nicest cars I've ever seen. My friends and just about everyone around my town has seen it and love it. Its pretty fast for a 2.8 liter and has pretty good response time. I'm still in high school and have one of the nicest cars around. Theres actually a lot of Zs in my town about 19. I just replaced a lot of parts on it and hope to rebuild the engine in about a year because it only has about 102,000 original miles on it and runs pretty damn good. I raced a BMW the other day and smoked it. I don't know where to get performance parts for it though. If anybody knows where to get such things email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Right now I have nice 1982 280ZX sitting in my yard. Right now me and my friends are working on it because it sat for about 10 years. What surprises me is that the paint is near perfect and it is original; you can see your reflection in it so I am happy.
So far we have put new plugs and plug wires and a new head gasket. When we tried to start it and we found out there is a clog in the fuel line, so we are trying to find a good time to jack it up and pull the fuel line out. But there is no rush because it will be about a year before I get to drive it. Right now I am in the ninth grade and get my license next year, and if this works, I will definitely drive it. And I will be damn proud of it that is for sure.
