.....Got it Going Again

The Queen is out of the garage. I ran into Ryan Friday and he said "Let's get your Z running. I'm off Monday." He came over yesterday and we got it running. This is my 1972 Datsun 240Z that I bought new and drove it off of the showroom floor.Now I just need to replace all of the fuel lines, put in a new fuel pump, bleed the brakes and flush the radiator. Oh, and clean out the mouse crap.
Here is Angle's and Ryan's next to mine. Looking at his Webber set up we discovered that he needs a new water pump. Old cars always need TLC.

I have had it under a car cover for several years and I actually forgot how pretty it is.

There is a long story on the color. I ordered mine in BRG. There was a waiting list and this one came in and no one wanted it. Under dim light it turns green. I bought it before children and they talk about fighting for it after I depart.

Mike if that was in the UK it would have more holes in it than edam cheese over here they arrived from the dealers in bits and only stayed together because the rust was friendly and held hands with the dit next to it
