Default New Junkyard drift project!

Hey Guys,

This is my first 350z/ nissan in general and first junkyard drift build. Got her super cheap but she definitely needs some loving. It's a 2003 track edition 350z. excited to start getting her back into shape and doing some skids. If you want to follow the process check out my youtube channel. here she is!

Definitely! Got her started but she has pretty bad rod knock and won't stay running...picking up a new vq tomorrow and will be breaking down the old one for forged internals if it's salvable.

First start up of the drift project! Not what I was hoping for but it's a start in getting her back on the road

Picked up a running used engine with 114k to get this beast up and running while I tear down the old engine and rebuild it if possible!

Did some more cleaning on the 350. You find some crazy stuff in the Junkyard car....

Ugh- that was one neglected Z33! Surprising that it was a track model. Mind my asking what a severely neglected Z with a non-running engine goes for in NM, nowadays?

Yeah it definitely was! Luckily the doors and quarter panels are in pretty good shape and i'm not too worried about the fender and bumpers. Yeah I was surprised how beat it was for a track edition too... I picked it up for $1700 delivered to my house with a clean title still and then I found a running engine with 114k on it for $1000 with a bunch of extra parts, so all together i'm only in $2700.
