• I hate it when the swappers drop in a fun-sapping slushbox for the transmission option. Too lazy to source a manual for the small block. Grrr. Auto is a go-to for me.

  • it'd be better if an Infiniti V8 was fitted instead of the Chevy. either with the auto or with a T5 swap.

  • Rarity probably wasn't a consideration when this was done. When stock, the 260Z was known for its vapor-lock problems. Swaps were common. At a minimum, one usually swapped the flat-top carbs for round-tops and self-deleted some emissions badness, but many got full engine swaps. Now, of course, values are up for stock ones, although most on Bring A Trailer have conspicuous round-top carbs.

  • I personally don't like v8 Z's. If you want a corvette, buy a corvette. Let the old s30's be their own thing. The deserve it.

  • Early 260s were 240-based, and worth more. The later 260s had the 280 features… and if you wanted a big-bumper 280, you should just get one of those. Rare doesn't always mean valuable.
