I am looking to purchase a 240/260/280Z 2 seater. While preferably I would want a right hand drive car, I have been looking into the 280Z in the US market.
The 280Z seems to have some advantages over a Japanese or Australian 240 or 260Z. You seem to be able to pick up a relatively cheap one in good condition for $10-11K (USD) (plus import costs). It has the same/similar body (earlier models) as the Australian models, plus it comes with a fuel injected engine.
Obviously I would prefer (like most others on this forum) a right hand drive 240Z, but for the price and the condition of an import I am strongly considering a 280Z from the US. I doubt I will find a RHD 2 seater sub $18k in Australia.
Would anyone like to provide their thoughts and opinions on importing a 280Z?
Is it worth it?
I haven't found much information on 280Z imports into Australia on this forum or on Google.
BTW: I would be removing the ridiculously huge front and rear bumpers
Example of what I would be looking at purchasing (but without the large rear lip spoiler):
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
