    Default ScottyK Has A New Car. You'll Never Guess Wh...

    Well,

    Most of you are aware, I've been looking for a project car for a few weeks now.. I was pretty open to a lot of different types of vehicles, but today I happily purchased a 1975 Datsun 280z. The car is in pretty good condition as it sits. Today when I got it home, I spent some time cleaning it up, removing the window stickers, doing a temp fix to the duct taped antenna, removing the front plate and soon I'll remove the mud flaps. I have some plans for this car, but we'll see where this journey project leads.

    When I went to look at the car, the PO took me for a nice long test drive and was very open and detailed about the history and current condition of the car. He showed me where he has been getting it serviced (locally) for the last several years, so there is a mechanic there that knows this specific car back and forth. That's a big plus. We agreed on a price, I bought it and drove it home. So far so good. So, on with the pictures!

    First time getting it home:

    I love these. When I was thinking of selling my Cabby for another project car, these were high on my list.

    Good looking specimen.

    Great talking with you Brandon! Looking forward to the pics.

    On a side note... Just saw these/this posted in the same small local city I just bought the car from. Kinda ironic.

    http://duluth.craigslist.org/pts/4527424325.html

    also less local, but swastikas with good tires $400 (edit, sold)

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ra...594087329.html

    and some seats: haven't pulled the covers off mine yet, but peeked at the bottoms and they do have some tears...
