'71 240Z on eBay with its Original Paint?

Is a Z with original paint in flawless condition  worth more that a high quality re-spray? 

I think so (and hope so).

They're all about originality. The window sticker and OE paint are trophies to me. With these cars old is good. If you wanted one, you could decide on which way to go. 

My original paint looks way better than base and clear coat. You can cut and buff single stage.

That's my opinion of course because that's what I have. Other's will have different views I'm sure.

I am looking at an original paint car and was just sent bunch of high Rez photos that I would like to post but not sure how. Any of you Z experts want to do me a favor and allow me to send you the batch via your email so I can get your opinion?

It you try:
Save the photos to your computers in a location you can find.
Open a new post
Write a message
Look at the bottom left corner for two icons “camera” & “ a mountain icon”
Tap the mountain
Choose okay to access pictures
Select the photos you want to post
Repeat as needed

Or send them to me

@Sunline

as an aside it would be nice if your signature pic was a little smaller

@Mike

Mike, maybe you could set a max size. I am sure that uses up a tremendous amount of storage over time...

I've tried, believe me. LOL

I can't pick anything out.  It looks like a good solid car if you want to pay close to $50K.  Decisions, decisions...

Good luck if you decide but I would definitely try low balling the price.

I've wondered about Mike's cost on storage.  I have a ton of attachments I could delete to free up some space on his forum.

I'll see if I can figure it out. It just came up this way. Was actually just trying to replace my "S" with a pic

Done, fixed the signature option to only allow 350x300 pixels.  Good idea.

We own the server and I've got at least 2TB free.. so it's not that big of a deal.  ?  Only problem is that large images tend to dominate the page, so I changed the option.

Update on the progress.

In Mig Welder stage. Tackling the rust. All the normal areas. Battery Tray , Cowl/Air Intake and related firewall. Floor Pans of course, Spare Tire Tub. Both wheel wells and back hatch shelf. Originally from Texas with some hail damage on the roof you couldn't see until in person. 

It's come a long way in the recent Pandemic months... multiple weekends of car time and not at kid sport events.

Welcome, AndyWalter007! 

That's great that you bought HLS30-27805!  Looks like you have made some great progress with the car!  Please keep us updated with additional pictures as the restoration progresses.
