    Too rich for my blood

    You can always expect a dealership to be asking a high price. I was wondering why they decided not to change the ball joints and tie rod ends. They look pretty old. If you were replacing sway bar end links, brakes, and lines why would you just do it all?
  2. You are 100% right, I logged off then came back after your response. All the ad's came back with some new ones too. My guess is they show you the ad's that are looked at the most. A strange world we live in today.......... I just ignore the bottom pic's and read the posts. It is the price we pay for the website to have ad sponsors.
  3. Interesting topic, I too have seen this for a long time. I chalked it up to the items that are most searched (ie.: T&A) so I clicked on that image and found it to have 24 million views. What was interesting is that it went away when I refreshed the page. To test that, I tried the next T&A ad for the Formula 1 gals. After clicking on it I refreshed and it was then gone. I did this for a third pic, and it too went away. Now this is my bottom ad selection. It changed completely. Just my observations, your's might be different. We shall see how long my changed ad's last. I expect she will be back.
  4. It looks like a Junk yard near Las vegas has a wrecked 73 and they are listing parts on eBay from it. I would think they would sell parts from it to a walk in customer. Saves them fees and shipping charges. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1973-Datsun-240Z-OEM-Center-Console-For-Parts-or-Repair-Complete-as-Shown/292547237616?hash=item441d2c96f0:g:E48AAOSw0SJa6gd8&vxp=mtr#viTabs_0

    Pick N Pull Lynnwood WA. 81 280ZXT

    Good thing I did not go all the way up there. Kind of looks like they got it that way. Hard to say. They just run the VIN and post whatever it comes back as. They never tell you anything about the cars, just "come and look" Thanks for the update.

    LeMay At Marymount Combo Tour


    Nice to meet some ZCCW members for an excellent tour of the LaMay private collection as well as the main display. We had special permission to park in the private LaMay home property for the Z's. All the others were parked on the street. Turned out to be a really nice sunny day and we saw over 1000 cars. Although not one Datsun in the whole collection, at least at these two locations. Still lots of rare and amazing cars.

    Thanks Zed Head, I have seen interest in the turbo parts, Exhaust manifold, down pipe, J tube etc. I did not know of the CAS parts, but see how they can have value. I would just pick them to flip to some other Z person that needed them. I don't think I will have the time to go up to Lynnwood. Over 130 miles one way. Just thought if someone was closer and had the means to grab that stuff......I expect those parts wont last long, if they are even still there.

    Nice 70 in Spokane WA $20K

    Hard to say when the pic's were taken, right after it was painted I would guess. Is that an overspray line on the shock tower and on the air inlet duct. Lends credit to it being a hurry type paint job, for the flip. Quite possible. NWDE plate frame, they are out of Portland, I just checked their site it looks like it has not been updated since 2016. Are they still a club?

    https://spokane.craigslist.org/cto/d/1970-datsun-240zor-offer/6558803251.html Unknown VIN, but aside from a few minor issues this looks like a worthy survivor. Seem all the notoriorty in these cars lately, is not only bringing them out but also raising the price bar.

    280z at B&R in Creswell OR

    I worked for a towing company and a wrecking yard. I have seen that too. On this car, the engine is not in the cabin. The steering wheel is not bent. and the windshield while broken, does not look like somebody hit it. My opinion is the seat belt saved them with some probable injuries. I do understand the trauma of seeing the ones that did not make it though. Makes me queasy too.

    Why bad karma Zed? The rear end might have been hit first and spun the car into a tree/power pole?. Bad time and place maybe. Black ice? Gravel in a turn? Drunk driver, this car or the other? Distracted driver, texting? Fell asleep at the wheel? Etc? Good karma for the cars that get repaired from this one. Sad that B&R are the ones that have it. I found this 240 at a local yard that was rear ended. Did he stop in a bad spot? Did he pull out in front of someone? Was he just rear ended at a stop? who knows? Great parts for cheap as I5 wreckers, B&R bought the yard and the car went into the restricted yard. Price hike!! I see I did forget the link. It is on eBay for selling the starter motor for $65 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Starter-Motor-Fits-70-73-240Z-9731704/232736455386?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D601c8b2426ee4b5d91061c9fc9e44e83%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D332622363051%26itm%3D232736455386&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042

    And another - 71 Datson $9500 in Auburn.

    Perhaps a transition car Jim, or one that has had some changes along the way. Not enough detail pic's in the ad. It would be nice to get the VIN. I saw the spilt carpet in back, later tool compartments? later carpet? The dash looks to have a 73 hazard switch, with the lighter above? The whole ad seems strange.
