Hi Guys

I'm am Makeshift, located in CPT, very new to the forum and arena but always a classic car man myself when if comes to V8 or builds from the '68 to '76 era's.

I recently found myself drooling over the Datsun S30 as I did look at a build on the TV Show 'Fast and Loud' and thought this would be a nice start.

Looking online in ZA I got an reality check quick as they are not so easy to find specifically the era from 71' until '76 the 280Z coupe 2+2

I like this know because of the shape and that its a little longer that the 240Z which makes is more desireable, ;) any suggestions?

I would like to restore this car with a modern twist as I came to the concluson I"m not buying new cars anymore will be restoring cars which I can use as daily.
