    This should give you an idea of how much too low your insurance coverage is! 😛

    Nice...  seems like some great cars coming out of the woodwork lately...

    There's so many of them, thats what some people seem to forget! Even with a 90% death rate, there's still so many out there.  The fact that the 432 went for 65 or 80k(can't remember which), where as the restored blue one went for 49k, this is at 43k(i'd prefer this one) shows just how strange and immature the market is.

    Unquestionably a nice example (and very professionally presented), so deserving of a premium price.  Still, it's a 73, where prevailing wisdom (now obsolete?) has said that these should be discounted relative to the 70-71 models.  Overall,  I think we're seeing a solid trend towards 'good' Z's moving up in value by $5K - $10K compared to a year ago.

    It will be interesting to see what the 1970 "Franklin Mint" 240Z will bring when it goes up on BaT soon. 

    Perhaps a six-figure car?

    A thread on this car was already started under 'Internet Finds" back on May 9th, but no one mentioned the final auction hammer price (including myself). I agree with you, a very fine example and and presented very well. The seller was also very forthcoming when answering questions.  240Zs are finally getting the respect they deserve and the auction prices are reflecting that.

    @DatsunZGuy Thanks for posting the link.  I don't have Facebook, but it's great to still be able to look at the pictures and read about the shop, etc.  Do you know if they also have an Instagram account?
