  1. It's sad to see such an early car in such deplorable condition. For the longest time these vehicles were seen as disposable and fell pray to adolescent whims and abuse. I plead guilty to hammering a few Z cars in my youth. I applause those who saw beyond that and preserved the ones that are quickly approaching the half-century milestone.
  2. On a related note: The car has made the mainstream interweb, along with the obligatory volatile commentary. https://www.thedrive.com/news/28433/completely-stock-1970-datsun-240z-sells-for-baffling-124k-on-bring-a-trailer?fbclid=IwAR0nh7iO5NCfTMXx05cZ8wdaIBRRM81KMINsIVwRoD4t-_NsMh5MTYQBhgc
  3. https://www.facebook.com/The-240z-Guild-463701714192371/ They are located in Madill, Okalahoma.
  4. Very nice car. It's just missing just one more important option to complete the ensemble: a vinyl roof 😎 My very first 240Z was brown/butter scotch automatic with a faux aligator-skinned 3/4 vinyl top.
  5. This one will easily hit 100K. Even for an Orange car 😲
  6. The 240Z Guild Facebook page has more information and photographs. https://www.facebook.com/The-240z-Guild-463701714192371/?tn-str=k*F From the pictures I've seen, it's impressive.
  7. 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?
  8. I recall seeing a showroom mint black/gold anniversary example on eBay a few years ago with about 5K on the odometer. That one must be in hibernation somewhere.
  9. During the recently completed restoration of my '72, someone offered $2,000.00 to take it off my hands. Sorry, I didn't store an NOS exhaust system for 10 years and lugged it around for two house moves just to sell it 😉
  10. It went to 40K when the gavel fell. Strong money for a solid example.
  11. Go here: https://www.classiczcars.com/classifieds/ Press the green button labeled, "Submit an Avert" and follow the prompts.
  12. Nice car. I just hope we are not seeing an overly exuberant Z car bubble. A just year ago, jaws would have dropped if this sold for even 35K.
  13. Yikes! An illegitimate lovechild from a 3-way between a 70's Mercury Capri, Datsun 240Z and a Reliant Robin
  14. C'mon...where's your sense of adventure? A bit of naval jelly and some wire brush work and she'll be ready to go on BaT.
  15. It's bittersweet to see these vehicles climb in value so rapidly. In some ways it is vindication for all the years I coveted Z Cars when they were marginalized for not being German or lacking V-8 muscle. Now mint examples are out of reach for some and rough examples too problematic to restore with some parts becoming hard to obtain.
