Looks like a clean shell. Nice.
What's your plan? Is she going to be stock or modified?

Nice. What's the history on the Z? Had it for long?

Im the lucky 13th Owner.

Before i brought it, it was last on the road in 1995.

Now all the fuel lines, brake lines, headlight buckets, hood hinges (anything that was yellow zinc) is getting re coated.

Will hopefully post more images soon :)
