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.

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.
