VEHICLE STORY

I bought this car in November of 2015, it had been for sale for a couple months. I stumbled across a FB post on a local tuner page, the owner was offering a discounted price for anyone in the group and I'd been waiting for an excuse to buy it since i saw it listed haha. Needless to say I've sunk a ton of time and money into it to get it the way it is now. It wasn't a bad starting block by any means, but it just wasn't me. I have an image in my head and i am gonna do anything to get it there.

[]Andrew Johnson

Fantastic build. Any updates to share?

[]Zachary Billetski

Best way to keep up to date is through my Instagram, I rarely have time to go through and update this site Haha

[]John Cho

Never seen a beautiful car like this before? It's better than a Lambo. How much did you spend total on this beauty? I'm thinking of getting a 1982 Datsun 280zx and I kind of want to make mine look kind of like this lol

[]Zachary Billetski

Rough estimate, all in I'm probably sitting around 25-30 grand, including the cost of the car.

[]Nathan Jackson

Wow what a beautiful car man! Do you have any recommendations on where to find a hood?

[]Zachary Billetski

Thanks. Honestly I've never really looked around for a hood but I do know they are hard to come by. Retrospec may have a FRP and carbon option, I haven't been on the site in a while though.

[]Nathan Jackson

I haven’t looked where yet I’ll give it a shot!! Thank man!

[]Tom Armstrong

Awesome car man, love the Z's

[]Zachary Billetski

Thanks man

[]Joost Van Dien

Would love to own and build one. They are just so scares in europe, same for parts.

[]Zachary Billetski

I'm sure one day you'll find a way man.

[]Joost Van Dien

Thanks, I hope so. The next step would be a OS Giken head. The sound :o!

[]Zachary Billetski

Yea those are a dream haha. They also make a sequential transmission haha

[]Bill Davis

Sweet looking ride. I see you have the Skillard splitter and diffuser. How do you like them? Did they install as advertised? I just got some of his parts for my 280Z last week but haven't installed them yet. Looking at the splitter and difuser next.

[]Zachary Billetski

hey, just noticed this comment, this site isn't the best for notifications. in my experience the parts have all installed fairly easily, especially if you follow his instructional videos. they are sturdy and the quality is good.

See whose at the top of the Wheelwell 280Z Leaderboard
