So I bought this car a couple of years ago solely because I wanted a project Z, this one was cheap, had a very 80s looking body kit, and some awesome looking wheels. Then I brought it home and realized I had a rust pit held together with Dondo. Fast forward a few years. New motivation in finding a wonderfully rust-free shell and the dream is revived. Hoping to end up with a really fun runabout. The kind of car that loves mountain roads and the occasional track day. Nothing crazy, but maybe something to make a little more horsepower as well. I would also like to add that, I have no information on the kit itself. Don't know the brand or year, so I would appreciate any information on it. I'm aware my aspirations require funds, and am prepared to take the time to do everything right. I'll get pictures up the next time i have access to my camera. Thanks!

And the wheels.

You should drive the Z to The Mitty at Road Atlanta this April. Their's a contengent of 510's meeting in Maggie Valley NC Friday April 27th at about noon for lunch and a drive through the Smokey Mountains down to Road Atlanta. It'll be an easy drive from New Hampshire as compaired to Canby last year.
