1973 Datsun 240Z

This car is for sale.  The asking price is $16k, and that price is firm.  It’s solid, with a bit of rust under the battery tray, but otherwise super solid.  See pics below.  Also included (if wanted) are a strong 2.4 engine and a 5 speed and all the hard to find parts to convert to manual.  You’d have to buy a clutch set and a clutch master and slave, which are available on rock auto or zcarsource.  I have the pedals, the factory hydraulic line, the shift boot, the cross member, etc…
Car runs and drives fine as is, but smokes a bit at high RPM

Compression is 170, 170, 165, 170, 150, 125.  This engine is numbers matching.

F150 Overly Aggressive Lumbar Modification (2015-2017)

Truck

The new NeedThatCar 2016 F150 is proving to be a great vehicle, which will fill many roles.  But there was a problem with the seat comfort that had to be rectified before I could drive it very far.  It has FAR too much lumbar support, and even though it’s adjustable, even in the most relaxed position, it’s too much.  So much, in fact, that it would cause back pain after as little of 10 minutes of driving.  I do not have previous back issues, so this was very unsettling after just a few days of ownership.
