  1. When I was 16 years old (33 years ago) with my first Z, I was guilty of this.
  2. Great point. When did the "series" thing first start? Having had Z's for over 30 years, I can't remember if that was a thing back when I first got interested in them.
  3. Awesome! Years of parts and restoration candidates.
  4. Parts I've collected over the years for this build. May or may not use them all. Debating on the fender mirrors and Fairlady badging at this point. I sure think it would be neat.
  5. Did you narrow down what happened with the sealer?
  6. What did you think of the silver 71 that was original at 98K and didnt make reserve? I thought that this would have been right on point. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1971-datsun-240z-205/
  7. Congratulations! I hope it went for something close to what you were expecting.
  8. Strange exhaust on the new Z.
  9. This is what I've decided. Too many variables with these inflatable booths.
  10. I have seen a few videos to where these booths dont evacuate the overspray to well. Still on the fence.
  11. At least they are asking a reasonable price for it.
  12. Still says $71,240 on my watched auctions. Hmmmm. I refreshed it. EDIT: I'm slow, disregard.......
  13. Check out the current price. Needs another digit, but I thought that was fun.
  14. 98K for a diamond in the rough and it still not selling. Like cw24072 said, mind blowing. I cant but think that there are shill bids on these cars.
  15. Me too. I started over 30 years ago with these cars while in high school, and in my mind they are still the $2000 car they were then. Theres a little sadness that the hobby is not a hobby anymore, but more like a business model. I dont plan to sell mine though, unless one day I need to turn them into eating money.
  16. Yes. Do you think the way these cars are gaining value and notoriety these days, will have any significant impact on whether a car is all original or "restored"? The green one that went to 300K+ made me lose a little religion. I'm only saying this because my restoration I'm doing in my mind will be a daily driver, but there will be a point to where $$ will dictate something different, and I have 2 cars I'm doing. Heck, that silver one before yours was a driver, and basically 100K couldnt buy it.
  17. So 70k or there abouts is the price people are willing to pull the trigger very quickly. After that its just sitting. No doubt its going to go way over this, but I find it interesting that it stopped for the most part at 70k. I'm guessing its like ebay, the last bidder may have 130K or whatever on his bid. So people with the financial ability to pay for cars whether olds Z's or a GTO, have knowledge, research, or gut instinct to go a to a certain level ($) and then just wait and see? What I'm getting at is, why would it go to $70k in a few hours then stop? People who would buy this car even at $70 I would have to assume that they have a disposable income to be able to afford a 70k car that is an extraneous expense. Does anyone want to speculate on what the car may sell for?
  18. One of the best restorations I've ever seen.
  19. 98K and he didnt let it go? Something aint right there.
