Do you want the S30 or S130 chassis?

Saw a 280ZX today... looked like it had certainly seen better days. I mean, the days weren't better, just that they were better for it.

Somebody was using it as a beater!

There are plenty of Z beaters around San Diego.

I actually grew up thinking of them more as old has-been cars rather than cool classic sporting machines.

I guess I had just never seen a nice one until I was quite a bit older.

People here typically don't bring out their Zs unless it is a prime summertime day... and even then, you have to drive around a lot to see a Z.

I saw this 280ZX before, but I figured it was an older Z than it actually was... it's in really bad shape. Sad!

But the moment I saw it, I knew it was a Z-car.

Some other Z-car sites have Z's for sale. Look for them in your area. Zdriver and Zcar dot com

I'm not sure if you know this, so I'll post the models for you
70-73 : 240Z
74 : 260Z
75-78 : 280Z
79-83 : 280ZX
280ZX turbo was an option on 1981-83
the body style was very simular from 70-78, then they changed the name to 280zx and did a major redesign.
