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...

Day 13: Still At It

Posted on: Tuesday October 29, 2013


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. Now here's the kicker: the lower wishbone attaches to the frame with two bolts - one on each side.

(25 years later...he's now restoring a Ferrari 30...

Intermission: 240z

The new kid

So I haven't posted in a few weeks because I've had a series of old friends in town visiting and my usual Monday's have been occupied.

Stay tuned!
