1978 Dastun 280Z. This car is incredible. Stupid fast with approximately 450 brake horsepower and only 2720 pounds
VERY solid 280z, floors and rails are in great shape, except for a few jack dents.
All doors, locks, hatch and hood open and close nicely
A couple of small bubbles in the paint in front of the passenger rear wheel.
This is not a hack job conversion. Gets lots of compliments on how "clean" the swap is.

Engine is an 6.0 LY6 engine out of a 2008 Silverado 2500HD
Factory L92 heads
LS3 intake manifold from a 2010 camaro
Corvette throttle body
PSI wire harness, keeps it looking tidy under the hood
TSP 225/230 cam with hardened push rods and dual springs with titanium retainers
Tuned for the cam using HP tuners and wide band O2 sensor. Starts, idles and runs like it should.
T56 6 speed manual transmission
Z06 clutch
Taurus style fan, has not over heated on me
Full length 1-3/4" stainless steel headers
3" single exhaust with turbo style muffler
Sway bars
Eibach springs
Strut tower braces
Runs and drives great, did a ~350 mile round trip road trip a few weeks ago, no problems.
Got 25.4 mpg combined hwy/town mountain driving.
Car ran 12.5@116 mph on normal street tires at Bandimere which is 5800 above sea level
Easily a low 11 second 12X mph car at sea level with traction.

Brakes are still stock, fine for street, not fine for going fast
Dash is cracked, aren't they all?
Paint is showing its age, it still gets compliments, but I'm picky
