Easter Saturday Trackside Braai

A Braai, for those not from Southern Africa is basically a barbecue. Myself and a few friends decided to go hang out and have a bit of fun at the track during the fixture free Saturday. Needless to say lots of fun was had by all and this is definitely something we’ll be looking toRead more about Easter Saturday Trackside Braai[…]

Jezza & I Part 3: Reigniting the lost flame

Jezza & I Part 3: Reigniting the lost flame

image

I’d never considered Jezza to be a project car, not something i actively planned to upgrade or build to any specific power output. If she’d been trouble free from day 1, i probably never would have changed a thing and driven her in a completely stock state forever. Fate & wear and tear obviously had other plans…

Jezza & I Part 2: After the Honeymoon

Jezza & I Part 2: After the Honeymoon

As with any new relationship the honeymoon period ends and true characters and quirks come out. You have disagreements and notice annoying traits. The first was probably the easiest fix i’ve had to deal with in all these years but it gave me a glimpse into the dark deep hole i was about to fall into.

Jezza & I

Jezza & I

What follows here may not seem like the greatest love story and its certainly not the easiest, but like a movie it has its ups and downs, and if the movie were to end as i write this, i’d say it has a happy ending. I have a feeling this story is far from over though so let’s start at a very definitive point: the beginning.
The story of how i found Jezebel, my 1990 twin turbo 300ZX.

This particular beginning starts about 7 years ago and 3000 miles away from where i am now. The date is sometime 2006(possibly earlier judging by the dodgy cellphone camera picture), after an evening visit or shift at the local groccery store i worked at while a student in Brisbane Australia. Looking back at it now this may have been the first 300ZX i’d ever laid my eyes on, and the last for a while, but one that probably stirred something deep in my soul.

Z Meet – Feb ’13

Z Meet – Feb ’13

dsc00463Sam Levy’s Village was the meeting place last month for the Z Club’s meet. It was a gloriously sunny day and has been the norm so far turn out was as good as it could be. Not to make the Z sound like a horribly unreliable (see also tempermental) ’90’s sports car; but between other commitments and cars off the road turn out was only about 50% of the full compliment. That said it was still a good time to meet up with mates and discuss all things Z.

Zim Modified Festival

Zim Modified Festival

Sunny clear day was forecast but it seems the weather indeed has a mind of its own. Regardless, the light showers didn’t deter Harare’s petrol heads from coming out to Westgate to check out the modified car scene. I managed to make it out there mid afternoon and take a few shots of the carsRead more about Zim Modified Festival[…]

Jezebel

Jezebel

What do you do when you can’t drive your car? Research new upgrades? Stare at it wishfully? i got bored and had a little too much free time and made a video instead.

Turbo Swap: Day 1

Turbo Swap: Day 1

Time: 3.5 Hours
Items Removed: Radiator incl Fan & Cowling, intake piping, exhausts & drive shaft

After having my Z sitting in the garage for almost a year and i half, decided it was finally time to get her back on the road. Only one slight problem: i have next to no mechanical ability. Well ok, not quite true, i can read and mostly follow instructions and remove things. Putting them back together is another story though, thankfully the other Z clubs members are more mechanically inclined than i am.
