Is it just me or does anyone else smell BS here?     Hard to believe what looks like pretty extensive damage was done to the Merc and so little to the Z......we all own one and know how lightly

Found this on the weekend. Was hard work getting passed the fat ass Falcon.

Best interior colour too! Ha.

Note he said they are still undervalued. Something I've been saying for a long time.

A good review actually, but good luck finding good ones now, especially in RHD specification.

I know I listed mine as an April Fools joke on Facebook the other day for a 1/4 mill, but I still had multiple messages about it.

Last night I took my 240z out to Springvale where a bunch of cars nuts hang out (I was meeting with some Stagea blokes) and I had several groups of young blokes come up to look at the 240z at different times.

Nice car and a honest appraisal. I’m off for a drive.

My car is a basket case but I’m so glad I bought it when I did. I think I would be priced out of the market today.... 

maybe not priced out, but more that I’m willing to spend 50k (please god make it only 50k.....) over the next 5 years rather than 60-70k today.....

I agree they’re undervalued, I think until the supply of cars in the US dwindles price growth may be slower than we all hope.

I don’t think this one has been posted. There’s 10 videos in the series so far. Some excellent rust repairs and a good guide for anyone looking to do similar work.

Though not so sure about how much they cut out with it on a rotisserie and no bracing.... :-\

you have to do some skipping to get through to the good stuff

Door restoration technique of having a lap weld isn't my favorite. Also looks like they used an interesting technique of body solder to repair the door frame.

The rear 1/4 repair detail was nice to see. But a lot of this repair work looks very familiar to me, given the work I've done so far on #150.

I thought the zinc paint he used in between overlapping panels wouldn't allow you to use a spot welder. But it looks like you can with that brushed on black stuff.

The zinc primer I've used has a bronze look to it. I guess does a similar thing.

Always love Larry Chen’s passion for z cars. And a good look at z car garages operation 

I agree wholeheartedly that a 280z is still "cheap" and 1 of the most affordable S30z's to buy still. And with back dated bumpers looks almost as good as an early car (sans tail lamps IMHO).
