It was listed and sold faster than I had to really take much notice of it.

Thanks to the Google-bot cache I can provide these pics.

It certainly looked straight and would appear rust free, but who knows what is under the paint?

That could be a good project for someone, especially if it has the original motor and nothing major is missing.

And it is already in Adelaide so getting it to Paul would be easy  ;)

Would love to get my hands on some of those spares. I guess someone has had a new years resolution to get rid of it?

Front end looks a bit average but at least you know what you're up against.

Good to see some early cars are being uncovered.

Hmmm, I wonder how much rust it has ?

Would love an early girl - Stop thinking like that the missus would kill me.

So he's hoping to turn a quick profit. Good luck to him.

Not really serious, especially at that price. But a tidy early girl would nice to have in the garage.

Better go and win the Lotto.

Sorry .... a touch of dementia kicking in, I even commented on it  ::)

Did not see the price on it though, that I would not forget so easily

Why don't you make him a reasonable offer? It looks like it could be relatively easily registered and enjoyed. It's a bit rough around the edges but looks quite original. You may regret it in the short term, but in the long term you'll be happy with an early 240z. I'd go see it in person though, photos can make something look better than it is.

Well, looking at all the "well done " and "wow early girl" type posts, why do you all find it surprising , he happened to be in right place at right time, and jumped on it quick smart, rather than dick around asking all kinds f questions and nit picking the nth degree.
Just 'cos he's asking 30k, doesnt mean he wont listen to lower offers, more than likely he's looking to flick it quickly.
Good on him.
( wonder if he's an ex used car flogger??)

I agree with you that he would probably listen to a reasonable offer, but truthfully an " Early Girl" is on the Lotto list, along with a few others  :)

I have always preferred the 2+2 and with a family need the extra seats.

I guess the point is this site/forum is generally for "enthusiasts" and not the "speculators" or "investor" types... :)

I know the prices traded on this forum are in the "main" fair & reasonable - I would hate to see opportunistic types swallow up available parts with no intention of actually using them...then watch them popping up on gumtree & fleabay :'(

Buddy if you think an enthusiast, speculator and investor are three different people you ain't been round this forum very long. This is the way of the world, I'm sure you'd love to pick up a house and flip it for a profit.

This only demonstrates our cars increasing worth in my opinion.
