Is this what Z ownership means?

I only got my 300ZX in Febuary and now its 'off the road'!!

 

I've started to upgrade/repair/replace my 'ladies' interior bits. All trim is out, dash is 75% unbolted and its now looking a sight for sore eyes.

 

Is this the beginning of it all.......?

On that basis I must be one very lucky bastard, cos the only time my zed has stopped in a year of owning it is when I did some mods for a few days.and I have done 10k in it.three oil changes and a timing belt and fuel pump and recirc valve later.

Owned mine for 2.5 years and it has been off the road for 9 weeks in total. Driving round in a Micra each time is worth it for when I get it back though. The first few bills feel painful but wait till you get really into it and the bills get even BIGGER!

Z first and anything else is secondary and live life a quarter mile at a time!

Had mine for approaching 4 years and it's been off the road for about 3 weeks. About a week when the auto gearbox packed up and was refurbished/replaced and nearly 2 weeks when it was converted from auto to manual earlier this year, but that doesn't really count as it was planned.

Had mine since November 2000 and the trend seems to go like this...long period off road...very short period on road...eon period off road...few weeks on road! You get the idea? biggrin.gif wink.gif

It's what you get, had ours best part of three years and the only time it is off the road is when we are not driving it.

Look after the engine with twice as many oil changes as Nissan recommend, change all the other lubricants (gearbox, diff, Hicas) before they are due etc etc.

So far, over 30K miles in it........ (waiting for the bang.....)

I've had my limited mileage adjusted on my Insurance policy from 10K a year to read "Local Spar and Back" biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
