  6. I have my car for sale I have be in contact with a guy from Europe that wants to buy my 240z. I have read about all the scams in those kind of sale has anyone sold a car to someone out of the country before if so what advice can you give me. I told him no wire transfers, no checks for more than the asking price. I was thinking about a cashier check. What we have talked about is he send me chasers check (fedx DHL UPS ) for half the money I will deposit and see if it clears he said he has a friend in Colorado that's getting married in April and when he comes to wedding he will being the other half and make shipping arrangements. I told him he's not getting the car or the title until I have my funds in full in U.S. dollars.What do you guy think.
  7. Thanks Walter yes that was my ls1- 240z at the show. The 370z will not be my daily driver as I have an 01 infinity I30 for that.
  8. 370 Z or not? I am torn and would like to ask the Z community for your opinion on a dilemma I have. I want to buy a 370z really bad but I just can't bring myself to do it. I have always been a Z enthusiast. I have three 240 and a 69- 2000 roadster. I had a 350z which I bought new in 03 but sadly had to sell in 06 due to the closing of my company. Luckily I was able to take a transfer to another division in the same town. I would like to buy new but it seems like a low miles used 370z makes the most sense. now let me give you little info the 240's 1. First 240 is a 1970 with 56k miles documented - The car was restored in the early 80's by the second owner. the interior still have that new car smell and is rust free no cracks in the dash and everything on the car still works. I have five original wheels and tires and hub caps for the car. I have had the car for 12 years and have only driven about 9k miles. 2. Second car is and early 1971 with 108k miles rust free calif. car with one small crack in the dash. The car is all original and have not been touched.It still has all the original hoses and clamps. the interior is still original but carpets have faded a bit. There is a small tear in the driver seat cushion but the passenger seat is perfect. I bought the car from the original owner 10 years ago with 106 k miles. The car has been garage since new when I bought it had been in the garage for 15 years he was keeping it for his granddaughter but her father didn't want her to have it so the old guy just kept it in storage.He took ill and had to move into a retirement home and put up the car up for sale. The car was under coated when it was new and the undercoating still looks great. I don't drive the car much at all only driven it 2k miles in the ten years I have had it. last time it was on the road was 2007 So in the last 25 years the car has only been driven 2k miles the car still looks great. 3. Car # 3 is a 1971 240z that has been modified now has an LS1 with 6 sp transmission from a 2002 SS Camaro. the car was repainted has Toyota 4 x 4 brakes new carpet racing seats LSD 280 ZX CV new tokico strut and springs braided brake hoses and a killer stereo 15" wheels. The car is a blast to drive I drive it from April to Nov. 4. The roadster I have had for 9 years and also don't drive much at all it too is a calif. car with no rust. The last time I drove it was 6 years ago it too just sits in the garage. My dilemma is which car or car should I sell to get the 370 I really don't want to sell any but I just don't drive them much at all. I could hold of a year and get a 09 370z. By then the price should come down enough that I may not need a very large down payment. So there you have it. What do you guy thing my best option would be?
  9. Whats the plan for Saturday I may come down from Fort wayne.
  10. I have soundproofing in the doors, on the floorboards and in the spare tire compartment

  12. I'm in the market for some 6 x 9 speakers for my 240z. I have been out of the car stereo game for a long time, not sure what good anymore.

  20. I'm thinking about putting a 12 sub in my spare tire well. What I would like to do is install the speaker in wood and screw in down in the well. I would also install sound deadening. Has anyone done this and what is the Sound quality . Or would it be better to build a box to fit down in the speaker tire well and.
