Sup gang. Recently acquired a z with the gf. The story goes like this,

I had made a deal to buy a 2dr 510. But, the seller sold it from under me. Like a bitch. So, I was pretty bummed about that the next day. The gf saw me all sad and on her own found a z on eBay that was a pretty good deal. So she bid on it, not really expecting to win, but she won! The only rub was that the car was in NY. And we are in CA. But we figured it out and finally have her in the garage.

I knew she was going to be rusty, coming from the east coast. But it's a bit worse than I thought. But, I will let you be the judge. On with pics.

I'm still jealous even if she is a bit rusty and in need of some new upholstery

Lol you really think he would tell anyone, ahh yes Mr. Peterson I was taken a piss and everything got dark like there was an eclipse, when I look back to see what was making the shade when WHAM!! Cock hit me right in the face. I don't know whose it was but we could match up the bruise.

Looks like she's in pretty good shape to me. Grain of salt... I'm from Michigan, so my definition of "rusty" and yours may differ vastly. Still looks to be very worthy of a little love.

I've seen worse, but a few of them still ended up as nicely restored/modified cars.

The underside and trunk area do look kind of scary, though. :unsure:

Lol. Thanks for the compliments. Sincere and backhanded ones.

The shipping company we used was DAS. Pricey but dependable. The priceyness was from it not running. Otherwise, very competitive pricing.

Plans are to get the brakes working. We had an almost disaster getting her into the garage. Then fix the rot. Specifically the frame rails/floor pans. And then to the engine and tranny. But it will be a slow going project. With 3 Datsuns they're all fighting for attention. Lol

I'd still drive and love the beast. But I think restoring is not a reasonable process anymore. Rust has claimed her. Maybe go mad max with this?

By the way.  Your check seems like a keeper.  Mine found my wagon.  I proposed a few months later.
