A few of us messaged last night within an hour. No response and messages left unread. Scam maybe

Maybe a typo, but that 260Z is ahead of its time being a "1966" model.

both have been up for a little while, the 1970 has been up for a fair bit longer. Market seems to have slowed down a little, or people only want to pay $80k+ for really well restored S30s.

You could be right, but IMHO I think the current z market merely looks like it has plateaued or slowed up due to some of the examples been offered up for sale not really being in top restored condition. Looking at carsales, the pick for me is the orange 260z for about 95k. It’s a beautiful restoration with lots of LCR work under the hood and a full rebuild all round. It’s the only one that looks as though it’s had a full rotisserie in recent times. The others look perfectly fine but I think the average price we are currently seeing is for cars that have mild/little restoration work done on them. I think if 3 concourse condition 240’s were to hit carsales tomorrow they would exist in the 130-150 bracket and that would alter peoples perceptions of where the market is truly at. 
OR, I could be totally wrong and have my head up my ar$e.

I tend to agree the calibre of cars on the market is really a lot of cars that still need restoration work done with unknown issues below their aged paint jobs. I haven't seen a properly restored car for sale in a while now to really gauge the market for them. I've seen a lot of early restored rotary's like R100, RX-2, RX-3 asking above $150k in the last year though and seemingly selling..

There was a very nicely restore 260z with an LCR motor that sold for around $80k last year, barely hit the open market.

but yes, some of the cars on the market now are not the nicest examples for the money.

"Unfortunately it’s time to sell the old Girl. She is beautiful and honest and I wish I didn’t have to sell her but due to circumstances it’s time to move her on. It has has the original motor what has been rebuilt and has been machined out to 2.5L. It could do with a tune though. It has had an older restoration at some point by a previous owner. So it’s definitely not perfect but it still turns heads everywhere it goes. Perfect for someone who wants to enjoy it while bringing her back to her former glory. "

Not unexpected if it has.


Two schools of economic thought:

1) Interest rates are set to rise sharply which means people sell off toys and holiday homes to reduce and consolidate increasingly hard to service debt. That coupled with the fact that money (for toys) will be more expensive to borrow means that there is not the same number of players looking to enter/stay in the classic car market thus pushing prices down.

2) Alternatively, as property gets more expensive to debt service their relative values either plateau or decline which means that people look to assets, other than property, to invest in such as shares or classic cars etc. This may in turn cause inflation of the classic car market.

 

it does appear that we are on the verge of experiencing situation one though. But if you don’t have to sell in the oncoming period then don’t. Situation 2 will roll around soon enough and inflation will move your car values north by default.
