Another Shop Car – Billy’s 1977 280Z

22 Oct

Here is Billy’s (one of our Chief Mechanics at the shop) 1977 280z. This car has a lot of history behind it and it was rebuilt from the ground up at the shop by Billy himself. I personally am not a yellow type guy but this color suits Billy’s personality to a tee. We have no idea how much power its currently putting down but I can assure you its plenty fast as it stands. Here are some of the modifications he currently has on the car that I can remember.

  1. Custom T3/T4 Turbo Kit
  2. Electromotive TEC 3 Standalone ecu
  3. HKS Front Mount Intercooler
  4. HKS BOV
  5. Bride XAX II seats
  6. Bosch injectors
  7. Bosch Motorsports Fuel Pump
  8. Enkei mesh wheels (no idea their name – anyone know?)
  9. Full Urethane Lip kit
  10. Fiberglass hood with cowl
  11. Fiberglass fenders
  12. 4 piston front calipers

and much much more that I am forgetting. Sorry If my descriptions are to vague. I will do my best to update this post with more accurate information when i get a chance. Anywho onto the pictures…

Old School to New School

16 Oct

Here is a sneak peak of Adam’s 280z build that he/we has/have been working on for some time now. We just recently got around to finally installing his custom AP Racing Big Brake Kit. It’s a one-off set that consists of 330mm rotors and six-piston calipers. The entire kit was pieced together by Adam himself (I doubt AP is getting many requests in for six-piston BBKs for 1979 280Zs 🙂 )

The entire car is almost near completion so stay tuned for more updates. For now, pay no mind to the dust 🙂

Edit: Here is another older picture of this car, just so you can a better idea of what it looks like. I took this picture like three years ago so please excuse the lack of photography skills.
