This car is great fun to drive, and has a healthy dose of reliable power. It's a classic Nissan, and a car I'd prefer to be able to keep. But circumstances have changed, and I don't get the time to maintain or drive her like I used to - a daily driver for the first few years, then after having a family, usually registered during spring and autumn each year. I've done about 35000km in the car over the last 12 years. This car has been a regular at All-Japan-Day in Adelaide - and the odd Z-car cruise!
There are a few stone chips/scratches in the paint (mainly the front spoiler/grille), and some fractured paint on the rear bumper – where I reversed into a carport... The factory cruise doesn't work, as it relies on the original ECU (it didn't engage at anything over 100km/h anyway). There is a missing power-window switch in the rear – a part that was unfortunately NLA from Nissan even back in 2002.
It's worth more that it will sell for (aren't they all?), but the asking price is $15000. I want her to go to someone who will appreciate the marque - and not decide to turn it into a drift car, and wrap it around a pole the first time they get the back end loose...
