My Z!

My Z-car! 1989 Nissan 300zx Turbo. Converted from an automatic to a five speed. That was (not) a fun job!  It's got a turbo engine from an Aniversary Edition car with only 80,000 miles on it and the transmission I pulled out of my 1987 n/a parts car. So, it's a bit of a "franken-Z."

Now, it just needs a paint job, but before that I have to replace the bushing under the rear end, it's got a pretty bad clunk.

But it's the Z that I always wanted, and I hope to keep it for a good long time.  

For anyone who may have an interest, here is a great site with the write up I used for my transmission swap:
