Nice looking 905 red early 240z on BAT.

I'm a sucker for 905 red with black steelies. My first 240z looked like this when I went to inspect it. So always brings back fond memories.

Interesting article.

I’ve always loved the 280zx and 300zx despite the hate they get. I always keep my eye out and prices are definitely rising, 300zx in particular. They used to sit around the 20k mark not a year or two ago, and now decent condition ones are listing for 40k. Have I missed the boat....

Looks nice, maybe it's my monitor but the green looks quite the Army olive green.

You'd want to check it out for rust very thoroughly if it's spent most or all its life in the eastern states though.

What, more than 100 grand for that pile? Why so much?

Have to love the LH dogleg repair... if it could ever justify being called a repair... 

Suggest you forward to every punter coming on this site wanting to buy a Zed... ;D ;D ;D and whinging about the cost...

The google translated text may indicate this could be the post restoration price??

Or maybe on top of the purchase price??

The period is 4 to 5 months, and there is no need to wait for up to half a year.
 
It is a system that you pay according to the progress of the work in multiple times instead of lump-sum payment.
 
Body color is free to choose, so please let us know after it makes a successful bid.

Exactly. They are selling a 'project' where the customer pays in stages for a restoration where they get to call some of the spec details to their choice. Like a kind of 'bespoke' build.

Righto. I thought there must surely be some kind of angle to it for all those $$$ or Yen, but was thinking along the lines of maybe it's a super-duper rare version of a S30 or maybe one once owned by a celebrity...

OK. Personally if I was prepared to shell out that kind of coin I would be expecting them to start with a better base car than that one, it doesn't look confidence inspiring. Just as with a building project, if there is a cost and/or time blow-out then quality suffers. The intending owner would be well advised to monitor the repair build quality very closely. ;D
