VEHICLE STORY

Purchased in March of 2015 from Bristol, CT. This is my second car and my first that I purchased on my own. I had previously owned a 1987 300zx N/A GL before stumbling across this car. While my 87 was a 5 speed (and I regret not keeping it for the sake of swapping the 86) I had to get rid of it due to the terrible condition of the body. I found this car on Craigslist near the end of February of 2015. After communicating with the seller I arranged a time to meet with him and check the car out. I instantly fell in love with it, even if it wasn't in pristine condition. It's been a great learning experience owning this car for the past 3 years, and I've had plenty of fun summer nights cruising around with the t-tops off. I currently have an entire NA2T Swap awaiting installation for this car...once I stop being lazy about it. -------------------------------------------------- 📈 Current list of recently finished repairs: ✅ New radiator and hoses ✅ New Transmission cooling lines ✅ Thermostat ✅ New midpipe for upper radiator hoses ✅ Cleaned rust out of coolant overflow tank ✅ Water pump and Timing Belt (12/6/17) ✅ Crankshaft Seal (12/6/17) ✅ CHTS & subharness (12/6/17) ✅ Valve cover gaskets ✅ Rear brake line, calipers and rotors. ✅ Headlight switch ✅ Tie Rod ends ✅ Distributor ✅ NGK plugs and wires ✅ Fuel Filter ✅ Fuel Filter Hoses ✅ Fuel Pressure Regulator ✅ Ignition coil ✅ Starter ✅ Alternator Belt/ Power Steering belt ✅ Leaking transmission (loose hose clamp) ✅ Various hoses ✅ Speed Sensor ✅ Cleaned Throttle Body ✅ Refreshed plenum cover ✅ New Battery Terminals and power connector ✅ New Battery ✅ Fix Inner door handle & Lock ✅ New Driver's Side door striker ✅ New Center Console hinge ✅ New Rearview mirror mount ✅ Cleaned out cigarette ashes/Smell ✅ Fixed Cigarette Lighter/12v Socket ✅ Replaced aspirator fan ✅ Working Power Antenna ✅ Climate Control Lights ✅ Replace air intake coupler ✅ Heater Core Bypass ✅ Removed Cruise Control Actuator ✅ EGR blocked off (will eventually be fully removed) ✅ Fixed Audible Voice Warning System ✅ Fixed Driver's Door Step Light ✅ Replaced driver's side outer door handle
