I just bought an 09 Honda fit as a daily driver and been looking for a project car ever since. This one just magically came up, I found it locally and couldn't pass up a deal of a lifetime. It's a 1988 Nissan 300ZX 5sp Turbo. All it need is some minor cosmetic fixes & i'm going to replace the alternator & power steering pump in a couple of weeks. :)

Hell, $1k for a turbo, 5sp, RWD car is a deal. :)

Any big plans for it, or just minor work to get it running reliably.

I don't know much about it...What's a Shiro Edition? Anyway, it was repainted to white (the original was pearl white) several years ago. I'm the 3rd owner. The 2nd owner bought it in 95 with 34k miles on it.

I'm planning to get the car to run 100%, fix all of the cosmetic issues (damaged front body kit) and then repainted the car to Toyota's Super White. Restore everything in the interior that's broken, reupholster the seats, etc...

Then after everything is fixed & having the car running 100%, i'm planning to mod it :)

Blasphemy. It's a Shiro Edition, it deserves to at least go back to a pearl white. Not too many of those running around.

Looking at those pics, it amazes me to this day that the Z32 and Z31 300zxs are just one generation apart. Its like there are at least two gens missing in between, especially in regards to the interior. Cool car non the less, I loves VG30s.
