240z or 260z 2 seater wanted. Preferably something roadworthy up to $15k. Ideally I'd find something in Tas but I'm willing to travel for the right vehicle.

Hey,

 

You might want to elaborate a bit. Condition, budget, location etc.

 

Good luck!

"Wanted, 240/260Z!"
"I have $50,000 maximum to spend"

Is what you need to say.
You enter the figures.

These add where only on gumtree and 1 stage but they seem to pop up more here now! Add another 10-15k mate and you might be close. You might get a 2+2 for that price but even then it might still have work needed.

I find it hard to believe that people are so off put by LHD S30Z's?

For $15k you can't go wrong really...provided minimal rust in the chassis.

+1 for importing a left hand drive one. I think its the smartest choice for finding minimal rust and bang for buck as far a clean starting point. Also the money or time you would spend fixing a rusted out one you could spend converting it to RHD and still probably save alot of money. Good luck with the find.

I reserve the right to rant gav haha....... there is always going to be people that like a cars appearance but have no clue on current prices/history/demand...i just don't get why they come to a forum where people will know their stuff and expect to pick up a bargain....we all know what they are worth.....Start looking at the for sale adds to see what they are going for...seems like basic research on any market for any item before posting a wanted add with an unrealistic price...... you'll find a 260 2+2 that will most probably be on the verge of unroadworthy for 15....but you could get lucky....there is one on carsales now for 16 that has undergone a respray and looks tidy however roadworthy isn't mentioned.....i think I could get 25 in a few days for mine and im pretty sure wouldn't be roathworthy as there are a few things that need to be sorted to pass.....

I have a solution.

 

Move on with life. Don't like a post ? Ignore it.

 

A nice green 260Z 2 seater sold in Sydney recently for about the OP's budget.

I can somewhat understand the frustration, it used to be a once a month event to see a wanted ad. But now it's a weekly or even daily occurrence. Perhaps a wanted ad "Frequently Asked Questions" sticky post would help set some boundaries and give some tips / advice for would be S30Z owners?

We have to remember at some point we were all looking for an S30Z or S130Z or Z31 (weird folks that lot ;)) and didn't have a good feel for the market. Also keep in mind that whilst there is a lot of spammy wanted ads on Gumtree, many folks who have posted wanted ads here have found their cars because other members would rather sell to someone interested, than put an ad out there and deal with all the time vampires etc..

So it works both ways, I think these posts would be a lot more useful if we knew who was asking to buy an S30Z. I know if I was to sell any of mine I'd want them to go to a home where they would be looked after and kept relatively original. Not bogged, flogged, flared and cheap plastic fender mirrored for the latest hipster look... So it helps to know more about the person buying it and how much of an enthusiast they are vs some blow in just going through the latest car faze..
