well after months of searching i finally for myself a 240z and not just a regular 240z a 1970 model made in March with Vin# 02062. Best of all it was practically in my back yard only 40 mins drive. I love the condition although it sat outside with the window half open for the last 2 years the only things i need to replace are the floor pans.....
the body is extremely straight the doors close and latch completely, hood lines up perfectly. I dont really wanna post up a big novel so here's the pics.....

well this weekend i got some racking up to store the parts as i take them off the car...


and also taken care of a little spider problem... apparently the car had a nest in it, cause i've killed about 15-20 spiders since i got the 240z and they keep coming..
So i really wasn't winning the battle but i will win the war....

I'm not an owner, but my dad had one back in the day he bought brand new in that same color! Him and i have really wanted to do this same thing and build a 240Z ourselves. Great progress already man.

Looks very good for a nearly 40-year old car known for rust. It's hard to find one that solid anymore. Keeping it the same color?
