  1. Hey,...I sold it already. A European buyer bought it using a Buy It Now option. Sad to see it go though.
  2. Hey guys,....looks like I sold her already. I took a deposit and awaiting the balance of funds. She's going to The Neatherlands. I'm feeling kind of sick about seeing her leave. I gentleman contacted me through eBay and asked for a Buy It Now option. I sent it to him, (through eBay), and he took it. Already have the deposit in my account. Just working out the bank wire transfer today. Thanks guys
  3. Hey guys. I have run into a situation where I need to liquidate my 240Z. I just listed it on eBay. Please let me know what everyone thinks,...and let me know if you know anyone who may want it.

  5. In Alabama,..any car "older" than 1975 does not have a title. You DO have a ceriticied registration. Yu must have the registration and a notorized Bill Of Sale from teh prior owner to be abe to transfer into your name at teh DMV. Other states have similar laws. In Georgia,..any can since 1980 does not have to have a title. You can buy a car from Alabama and get a title in your state, (if you have titles on the older cars),..simply by using the Alabama registration. It is a Transfer LAw that one state MUST honor the other states paper work. I live in Alabama and have sold numerious antique cars to people in toerg states that do have titles. I have never had anyone have a problem. When I sell a car like that,..I go to our DMV website and print off the directions for the buyers state on how to handle the transfer.
  6. "It's a Barrett-Jackson quality restoration". Funny,....I seldom see Barrett-Jackson cars with; [LIST] Flat blacked fender wells and under hood; Wal-Mart Plastic / Chrome Mirrors; Carpet Dash Covers; Cheap after market wheels; and Metal Tread Plating under the hood. I've gotta' start paying closer attention!!!
  7. Hey guys,...the tailight assemblies on my 240 are in near perfect condition,...except for the plastic chrome strip that runs horizantal. Does anyone sell new replacements?
  8. Siteunseen,...it really wasn't all that difficult More than anything, it was cumbersome and time cinsuming. I would rate it a 7 out of 10. I would say it is definatley a 2 person job though.
  9. I went with standard Monroe / Gabriel struts. My tires are basic 195/70R 14. Nothing fancy.
  10. No,...I did not replace anything except the strut cartridge. I don't think I have lowerd springs. I bought the car from the 75 year old original owner a few years ago. It still had the origna hb caps and original radio in it. I would doubt he had lowered springs added. Here is a picture of mine for comparison to yours Hardway.
  11. OK,..so first of all, THANK YOU to everyone who has responed to my two prior threads regarding replacing my struts. UPDATE: We replaced the back struts last night. Not a terribly complicated job and easier than I had feared. It did take a long time though. We started at 6:30 and didn't get finished until around 9:30,...including clean up. Three hours to do just the back. The first side took much longer as we were learning as we went. The second one took less than an hour. NOW MY NEW CONCERN: I was replacing the struts becasue my car rode very rough and "bottomd out" on every small dip,...with a hard "clunk". It rode like a car that had been lowered. When you tried to "bounce" it, there was almost no movement to the car. Every bump in the road was a jaring thump. So,...I assumed my struts were collapsed or frozen up. To my great disapointment,..after we replaced the rear struts last night,...it rides exactly the same. What else could it be? What would make the car ride like that other than the struts? It is all stock and sits up nicely all the way around. It just doesn't have much movement to the suspensions,...front or rear.
