YOU ARE BIDDING ON MY ONLY MODIFIED 240Z IN THE Z MECCA COLLECTION. I AM SAD TO SAY THIS CAR MUST GO AS I JUST ACQUIRED ANOTHER LOW VIN NUMBER 1969 PRODUCTION CAR AND I JUST DON'T HAVE THE ROOM TO KEEP THEM BOTH. THIS RUST FREE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CAR WAS BUILT IN THE LATE 80'S. IT ONLY HAD TWO OWNERS SINCE THE FERRARI CONVERTIBLE CONVERSION WAS COMPLETED. I ACQUIRED THE CAR IN 2001 FROM A MARINE STATIONED AT CAMP PENDLETON AND DECIDED TO BUILD A HIGHLY MODIFIED POWERHOUSE WITH ALL THE COOL BELLS AND WHISTLES. MOTOR HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REBUILT, BALANCED AND PORTED, FITTED WITH CUSTOM T3/4 TURBO, INTERCOOLER, CRANK SENSOR, ELECTROMOTIVE TECH 3 FUEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, 100 PSI BOSCH FUEL PUMP, CUSTOM BILLET FUEL RAIL, HIGH VOLUMN INJECTORS, MSD PLUG WIRES, CUSTOM PUCK CLUTCH DISC AND PRESSURE PLATE, AND 3 INCH CUSTOM ALL STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST. IT'S PULLED BY A ZX 5 SPEED AND ZX R200 3.5 GEAR RATION REAR END. THIS MONSTER PRODUCES A CONSERVATIVE 300 HP AT THE WHEELS AT 12 PSI. A FEW OF MY CRAZY TURBO Z FRIENDS PUSHED ME TO BOOST TO 20 PSI TO SEE WHAT THIS BEAST WOULD DO BUT I AM AT THE AGE WHERE I AM NO LONGER INVINSIBLE AND HAVE NO DESIRE TO CRASH AND BURN. THIS CAR IS SCARY ENOUGH AND I WARN THE WINNER OF THIS AUCTION TO PLEASE BE CAREFUL. IT WILL KILL YOU IF YOU ARE NOT AN AVID DRIVER.
CAR COMES WITH A BLACK CANVASS TOP THAT SNAPS INTO PLACE. TOP IS IN LIKE NEW CONDITION AS ALL THE PREVIOUS OWNERS INCLUDING ME ONLY DROVE THE CAR DURING THE NICEST WEATHER. INTERIOR OF CAR COMES WITH NEW PIONEER AM/FM CD PLAYER AND NEW 6X9 SPEAKERS AND TWO TWEETERS. DASH WAS REPLACED BRAND NEW AND DYED TAN AT TIME OF CONVERSION AND IS STILL CRACK FREE.

Those who were disappointed when Datsun changed its name to Nissan over three decades ago may have been pleased to see the marque revived last year, even as a budget brand. Nissan's counterpart to its ally Renault's Dacia budget brand, Datsun has been steadily expanding its lineup of low-cost transportation for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback in India, the Go+ minivan in Indonesia and the On-Do sedan in Russia. And now it has returned to Moscow to reveal its fourth model, the Mi-Do.
Tue, 05 Feb 2013 08:46:00 EST
Based closely on the On-Do sedan (which itself is based on the Lada Granta) the Mi-Do takes on a five-door hatchback bodystyle but with no more frills. It uses the same front-drive chassis with the same wheelbase as the sedan, but its chopped tail makes it a good foot and a half shorter overall. Into that compact shape, Datsun has fitted dual airbags, ABS and... well, that's about it. It's got a 1.6-liter, eight-valve inline-four kicking out a grand total of 87 horsepower to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Bare bones, this is.
While delivery of the first On-Do sedans commences next month (with the first example going to an IT specialist in Omsk), the Mi-Do is set to begin delivery early next year. Scope out the video and press release below from the Mi-Do's reveal at the Moscow Motor Show.
You can add Fiat to the admittedly short list of automakers considering a low-cost brand to rival Dacia. The inexpensive Eastern European brand from Renault-Nissan has performed on the balance sheet like a premium model line, and the money the alliance is taking off the table is encouraging other players to deal themselves in. Pretty soon Nissan's Datsun sub-brand will join the Dacia party, going on sale in Russia, Indonesia and India and will claim even more rubles, rupiahs and rupees for the parent company. Volkswagen recently said it will make a decision this year on a budget line for the Chinese market. With the euthanasia of Lancia and plans to move the Fiat brand upmarket, company CEO Sergio Marchionne wonders aloud to Automotive News Europe whether there could be room for a new budget brand underneath Fiat.

We're told that the initiative has been in the idea box for five years and even moved to the stage of name considerations, like Innocenti, but worries about profit kept it from realization. If such a range were to be developed, Marchionne says it couldn't be built in Italy and stay within budget, and the company is "analyzing its manufacturing capacity outside of Europe to see if a low-cost brand is viable."
Nissan's Datsun nameplate revival will begin with two models bound for the Indian market. Nissan has released sketches of a five-door hatchback based on the Micra (codenamed K2) and a top-down view of a hood that could potentially be from a sedan.
The company's press release says all will be revealed on July 15 in New Delhi, India. The Datsun lineup will be first offered in 2014 to that country's ride-deprived residents as well as Indonesia and Russia. Later in 2014, South Africa will join the list.
We've heard Nissan plans for Datsuns to share platforms with company-owned Lada. In January, we heard the projected price tag could be around $3,000 USD to compete with Chinese imports. The official press release (which can be read in full below) says nothing about either of these reports, however.
