Well, I've now played out the classic newbie narrative. I got overly excited, jumped in over my head, doggy paddled for a bit and then decided to get out while I could. After a year of working on my 240z, I realized that a full restoration on the GT-6 would take much much more time, energy and money then I want to commit. So the GT-6 has just been sold to a Triumph fanatic in CO, where it will get the knowledgable attention it deserves. I look forward to owning a nice driver someday that I...

Took the Z to the body shop and after a 6 week delay, I got back to the GT6. Basically, picked up where I left off...dismantling the front suspension.

The next few Mondays will not be GT-6 work days either since I just acquired a new toy: 1971 Datsun 240z! It doesn't need much, but I expect my attention will be diverted for the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
