interested in buying a 280z in France, does those pics look alright or sketchy


Recommended Posts


That's understandable, if I drove 450kms to see it I would definitely be putting a down payment on it.  Having said that, everything is fixable and no matter what Z you end up with, it will have a history and will still need to be sorted out. All these little things that people have pointed out can also be used to haggle the price lower, good luck.

Thank you guys, i told the seller i'm not taking it, i'd rather take my time a little more and choose between several cars. This one had french papers and was drivable so it was the main perk. I'll have a look in NL and keep reading stuff here.

What kind of car are you looking for, in terms of condition? Perfect and original? What kind of repairs are you willing to do? Although there a few questionable spots, particularly the rear bumper, I really didn't think that one was very bad, and it's unlikely you'll find one that needs nothing.

Yeah i know any Z will probably need work. What is bugging me on this one is the timeline, why has the seller waited so long to get the papers and then why does he sells it 1 month after... 

And i guess i'd rather buy something from a prefessional.

 

edit: I have the customs paper with the tax he paid so i can calculate that he bought the car for ~10k usd. So he is flipping the car with nearly 0 work on it for more than twice the price after 1.5 years

I don't know that one..  The only thing i can say, watch out, many s30 cars are in bad state.  I see that they are in Almelo.. If you want my 30+ year Z-eye looking for you .. you could take me with you to them, costs nothing just you have to pick me up and bring me home.. send me a PM. if you need some specialist eye haha.

In a week or so i have my 300zxtt out of the garage (Just needs a MOT for this year) and i can drive there with you as covid keeps me from driving there with you in one car!  (As i am a bit of disabled person i better take some precautions from getting ill!)

i think it is by appointment only at the moment and i would go there when they have one or two interesting cars ^^. My dad would come also, but he is vaccinated. I will tell you if we come, would be nice to see the 300zx, but we could drive you no pb

I think that you've made the correct decision.  There was something wrong with that car.  I also think that there's been collision damage. 

Rust repair for Z's is not easy, but there is a lot of great guidance available for DIY-ers.  Conversely, you may observe that there is virtually zero guidance available online -- on this site, or anywhere else -- for home garage correction of collision damage.  Worse still, it can take some careful inspection to spot collision damage.
