Do you know where it was imported from? Is it an ex-Australian car? What motor is in it now?

I think there may be a hint in M3240z's user name.

Hi M3240z and welcome to the forum - nice car!

 

I notice that the 240Z's next to your car in each photo (i.e. the midnight blue and white 240Z's) don't have indicators in the front guards. I believe that HS30-H has said that they were a requirement in the UK. Do you know if these cars are ex-Aussies too? (they were not fitted to any Australian delivered 240Z's)

certainly looks a lot like a BMW 6 with that angle and rocker cover.

The white car is LHD so I would guess it wouldnt be Australian delivered car.

Good point, I missed seeing that - I wonder if it has had the indicators 'shaved' then? I have never seen an unmodified LHD 240Z without the fender mounted indicators before.

Just updated first post as a few images were broken after the forum move and a couple of links to external images died. I'm trying to save photos that are externally located because I can't control those and it's best if people upload their photos here that way they don't break later.

 

Until I come up with the final solution which will be a registry that has a gallery / album attached for each car. Still a work in progress...

It's a shame this member never got back to us.

Should probably try and PM him and see what happened and what number it was...

Am I correct in assuming that sending a PM means that the user gets a notification on the email address they registered with when they joined AusZcar?

 

I sent a message to the OP of this topic because he had not logged on here since the new owner made himself known, but no reply :( ;

Yes they should get an email depending on preferences but if they used a throw away email and never check if I guess they won't see it. Shame because I would love to know what happened to it. Very rare in white with blue interior.

240z #60 is listed for $20,000 AUD on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem

I don't want to put down the owner, however I want to know what everyone else's opinion on this is? Keep in mind that in Japan these cars easily fetch alot of coin.

I think he's hoping for an international buyer like from Japan or maybe even the US or UK? For someone in the UK it's only really about $10k maybe even less.

It looks like it would need a bit of work to be show room presentable though, although i've seen plenty worse.  :D
