Project Status

Flame's 300ZX being stripped for parts

Currently Status : Dead

I managed to cook my automatic transmission during a trip to Tasmania for Linux.conf.au so for a while I was driving around with only first gear and overdrive. There was also oil leaking from various places in the engine and low compression in at least 2 cylinders. The total repair cost would have been well in excess of what I originally paid for the car.

I am currently stripping my 300zx and selling it off as parts. Once I finish selling it off I'll be looking for a new car to install geek mods in.
