To keep the Cars For Sale (3rd Party Sites) Ebay, Carsales etc.. thread separate to the global market I've created this new thread.

To kick things off an interesting car for sale is this 280z.
http://www.datsuncla...00.00-4333.html

Asking 100K - never registered car.

NEVER LICENSED 1976 280 Z, 1976, $ 100,000.00
80 Z car bought from dealer 1976 and has never been licensed. Driven 36 miles and then parked for, Yes 38 years and still smells new. 354 total miles. Not sure what to ask for this car taking all offers. Feel free to call me at your convenience, thank you for your interest. Dean 909-257-6551

Second entry into the most epic thread on this site  8).. In my opinion anyway.

Super clean looking early S30z in the US. Comes with it's own website.

A few dings and scrapes but otherwise a very clean looking little car.

Starting at 10K with reserve.
http://www.ebay.com/...l-/331485538204

My guess is that bidding will hit $26K USD and reserve not met.

I found the way to reduce photos on a iPad is to email them to myself. It should give you the option to reduce the file size. (some versions it does not but you just hold on the file size and it gives you an file size option.)

Partly to blame is the forum software, but also restriction on space for the web-server. Remember hosting costs mostly come out of my pocket. With a few generation donations from time to time.

It's super easy jason!
Bring up picture on screen
Press home bottom and power button that makes a screen shot in your photo album and the picture is smaller.
Then use that picture to upload.
Done

HS30-H A.K.A Fairlady 240ZG on Yahoo! Auctions.
http://page4.auction...tion/d165322713

Starting at 4.5M yen and asking 8.5M yen buy it out price.

Current exchange rate at time of writing is ~92K AUD.

It has some period mods like Triple Carbs and Exhaust header etc..

These seem to have gone up in value, a couple of years ago $50K AUD was about the money it would take to get 1, now they seem to have almost doubled. Not sure if that is market rate though?

Gav,
I was discussing this with some of my fellow Club S30 members in Japan in January. Also with Ando san of T.A. Auto.

Prices (asking, and selling) for the homologation specials are rising faster and higher than those of the common-or-garden variety. Condition and integrity (there's a few 'genuine' fakes to deal with...) is still king, but generally speaking the prices of good examples of factory HS30-H models are climbing fast.

In Chiba I saw an HS30-H that had just been restored, and was told by the restorer that the owner had turned down several offers on it after it emerged from resto and had been featured in Nostalgic Hero magazine. The highest offer he turned down was "over 15 million JPY". Gossip is that the resto itself cost more than 5 million.

Thanks Alan, but that's utterly depressing. Always wanted a genuine Fairlady 240ZG and now it's just a bit more out of reach..I guess I should be happy to have 2 S30z's. It's nice to see their values go up and the cars finally getting recognised for what they are but there is a downside to interest in the marque also.

Be careful what you wish for I guess.
