OK,

Well slight hicup, I left the camera cable for the camera I used at work, so pics wont be up till 8.00am tomorrow morning.

What can I say about John the owner first, and this is with no disrespect at all, he does seem to be a collector of sorts, apart from the vast Z collection there is probably in excess of another 30 vehicles sitting on his prperty, however as I explained to him, the z's he has are almost all beyond the point of being considered restorable by the average enthusiest, what I mean by that is that a die hard enthusiest with a lot of cash would see many of these cars as long term, high cost cars to restore.

What a Z is as the moment is still a sleeper in the collectables market place, just like an XB Ford Coupe was 10-15 years ago when you could buy one for $2,000.00, now one in neglected shape is worth $20,000.00, and I should know I was looking to buy one for 6 months and I have owned a XC Cobra so I know my coupes.

The Z is just that which the Ford Coupe was back then, problem with these cars is that they are at a stage where another 12 months of weathering will see them unsalvageable.

I will post a picture of each of the following cars tomorrow morning, and rate them between 1 - 6

1=Minimal Salvage Proposition - some parts no panels
2=Salvage value for some parts some panels
3=Salvage value Body less panels and parts
4=Restorable at a cost
5=Restorable depending on eagerness
6=Restorable proposition


I know John will probably read this as he mentioned he has been on line, however I was honest about the cars when I looked at them to him and will be honest here in reporting back.

Cheers

John

#13 This is John private stock which is stored in his shed and he intends to keep and restore.

I will be speaking to John again this evening as we are talking dollars for these cars, he will have a think about it and I will be counter discussing my opinion on their value, so please hold off until he has had a chance to think about them, I said we were a nice bunch on this forum so lets give the guy time to think without a 1000 calls.

Cheers

John

For those that can't wait, there are some photos of #5 at

http://www.viczcar.c...ic,6019.15.html

You might be able to see some of the others in a "where's wally' kind of way in some of the shots.

Should this be moved into another Thread as it may well take over the e-bay thread?

A story about a lovely chap who collected 13 zeds only to let them rust and fall away into disrepair...
& with so many young wanna-be zedders who cant find zeds to restore, it all
seems quite tragic.

what an utter waste of a classic car.

Just for the random part of my brain thats always looking for something different, anything of interest in the 30 odd non-zed vehicles?

Looking forwards to photos and condition reports on the zeds too!

Guys what can I say ?

Nothing, I will let the pictures tell the story in the morning.

Other vehicles there included from what I could see

(X3) 300 ZX's
(X1) V8 Soarer
A couple of Peu-Goats
(X1) Circa 1988 Dainler 6 cyl Sedan
At least (X1) V12 Bimma, he mentioned another
3 series Bimms's
A couple of recent 90's model Korean's
Thinks I saw a 90's Range Rover

But I was more concerned with the Zed's, Im sure you will spot some other vehicles in the background.

Cheers

John
