A). Leno drives his cars.

B). It's a 280ZX.

Its an absolutely gorgeous car, but its probably worth about 20 or 25 in that condition. Problem is, its going to be another 30 or 40 years before the condition of the car and rarity outweighs the amount invested. They just aren't that desirable yet.

I would lay down the 21K he is asking if I had it. My very first Z was a 1982 2+2 and this car takes me back to those times. I believe he will get it. These cars are good for the highway and city. Tuned well with the 20 gallon gas tank you can get almost 500 miles on a full tank. Besides it would allow me to keep the miles off the nice 240. Wish me luck on the POWERBALL!

Correction ........he really hasn't asked for a minimum price. He seems to be waiting for the highest bidder. Total investment means nothing to me. Lets hear a rock bottom price!

If he really has $80K invested in it, he won't take 21 or even the 25 that Ted mentions unless he's just desparate. Less thatn 1/3 of his 'investment'? IMO, he'll be keeping this car.....for a long time.

Nice car but since when do you consider your storage fees & taxes as part of your investment. Sorry if I have $84K to burn I am buying a GTR.

Given that it is a dealer I think they may just have a ridiculous reserve and are testing the waters to see if they can establish a value for the car. We'll see how high the bidding goes.

Nice car but........ It's a ZX. Its just not the same. know what I meen?

I know exactly what you mean. And to me NOT driving it would be a crime. Sorry, but it's a Datsun. If you want to buy a car and not drive it, there should be a prancing horse on the hood.

I don't think Leno is into Datsuns at all.

He's actually mentioned in the past that his very first sports car was a Datsun Roadster.

they aren't going to get 45k either, LOL. They are going to get 20-25 or have the car for a really, REALLY long time.

Haha - of that $80K $56K is for climate controled storage - the guy says the previous owner drove it home and parked it in his garage for 21 years. I guess he was charging himself $150 a month for 21 years. Must work for the Government to come up with numbers like that.

I'd rather have the Porn Star Red or the hideous Blue interior than that brown. That's one lesson we learned from the 80's. If it was a turbo then he might have something ;P
