    84 nissan 300zx

    Here is My Car

    1984 Nissan 300zx N/A 2+2
    I have done following modifications to her.

    Magnaflow exhaust
    Optima Battery
    New Front shocks/ Struts Mount
    Kenwood Sub
    Kenwood Amp
    Pioneer Cd Player
    New Carpet
    Short Throw Shifter
    New Brakes
    Aftermarket Center Console
    Repaired Some of electrical wiring.

    150,000 miles still runs like a champ. Bought it for 1350$ U.S. and put alot more into it. Its my daily driver and let me tell ya sure is fun to drive the 5speed. No A.C. just t-tops just the way I like it.
    Only problem is my speedometer went out on digital dash. So I just go by rpm and estimate how fast I am actually going. And ya got a couple speeding tickets hehe. 26years old and still runs like a champ and body not to bad. The guy I bought from put body kit on it not sure what brand. The front bumper of body kit was falling apart so I took it off to give it a cleaner look.

    I love those old Z cars. Those 300's and 280's are mules.

    Yes I agree Magnaflow good sound with this car. It is very loud at high rpms which I dont mind. It was a very good upgrade Imo since old exhaust was rusted and had air leaks. And not very many people have this car/model in my town. In fact I havent seen one yet, just one in another state.

    To bad you don't live in WA. We have a pretty well organized Z club here in the Northwest. Here are a couple pics of some meets/drives

    When I saw nissan I thought it was going to be a peice of crap tuner but your cars actually looks good. Looks almost like a T/A
    Nothin' like a 4 on the floor and a V8

    I was thinking the same thing with those wheels, almost like an inbetween of a fiero and firebird.
    Some like R/C's that are fast, others like nitro

    One thing to make sure of, especially with DOHC's, timing belt and the timing belt tensioner should be changed out when you get around 80,000 miles of use on them. Last thing you want to do on that nice car is drop a valve.

    If you are not sure when they were changed, you now know what should be on your list.

    Thanks for the warning Nitronaught. THat was actually on my to do list but havent had funds available. Not sure when the last time the timing belt was last serviced either. What do you think something like that would cost? Just a rough estimate would give me an idea.
