Looking at a 240Z next week - any advice welcome
Posted 24 March 2012 - 12:32 PM
Never driven a Z - want to own one.
I have loaded up with what to look for as far as rust areas, I'll check ot the usual sign of previous damage....but have extremely limited knowledge on how it shold drive or perform. For what I want to get, this sounds pretty good - a weekender that I can take to the track or drive / cruise whenever and have some fun with. Not looking for an original matching numbers car.
The car in question supposedly has:
L28 and 5 speed (unknown details about the block and head and compession)
A/Maket Cam (unknown)
new rear shocks
most or all underbody rubbers recently replaced.
sunroof (only bad thing so far)
Any opinions, suggestions or help would be appreciated.....it's at the high end of what I want to spend on a Z, but I also don't want a project - so it fits with my requirements + is in Tassie.

He suggested that there was a replacement panel put in (pretty sure he said floor pan passenger side)
I have only spoken to him over the phone and can't wait to see/drive it next week - just looking for advice.
He has driven it at Symmons Plains race track and suggested he got 1.09's. That is not a bad effort in my opinion, but I still have limited info on l28s in general.

Hey Scott, what colour is it? Just wondering if I know the car. 1:09's at Symmons is pretty slippery for a n/a street z.
Its red with old school 5 spoke mags (googled them). I wish I could bring it to the BP and have you and Rob take a good look at it as I have no confidence. Its the first one I will have ever driven or look at closely that's a complete car.
Given its the most I would want to spend, I want to be sure it is what it sounds to be.
I like the idea of a mildly modified l28 as it's what I want.
Car is in Launceston

If it goes well, I will definitely be in touch.
There is another car that half interests me if it's tidy that is down south:
