Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
It’s one of many dreams cars of mine and the Datsun been in my family ever since I can remember I learned how to drive in a Datsun. My dad and 2 older brothers own a Z so I guess it grew into me and I told my self I would have the best Z out of them lol.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
I was looking for a good shell because I knew I wanted to tare it completely down and redo the whole car and lucky enough I found a good roller with Minor surface rust and that had been previously repainted by old owner.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
I wouldn’t say is completely done but in my eyes I would say its complete. I still need to install my carpets and redo my dashboard little things to complete the whole build.

If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
I would totally build another one if they would go lower on prices they are getting expensive.
