Finding a 240Z in Australia is difficult. Finding one in good condition for anything under $20k is rarer than a unicorn ride to work on Fridays. After months of searching and missing out on a very good one by a mere two hours I finally found my unicorn ride. Sadly this unicorn has seen better days but we won’t let that get in the way.
As you might have noticed, this car has some rust. When I say some I mean it’s rusted with the occasional patch of metal about to rust. It sat outside for 12 years in the same spot without any cover. I have my work cut out for me…
So, I picked up a car this afternoon.
In fact it might be extremely costly to save her.
But there is hope! For where there was once life...
...there can be life once again.
That is if I replace every part here.
I'm sure I can afford to replace everything in this photo.
If I step on this it will just go away. Problem solved.
I don't need to worry about this section - if I try real hard I can always just stare forward.
But what is this! A donor car!? That's only half rusted...
It is possible we just might hear this engine sing again...
And this body roll with pride again...
And this plate shine again...
For her 50th birthday.
