How Many 240z & 260z Are Left

Was wandering how many 240z's there are in the uk, I have heard figures ranging from 100 to 200 in the past but do these figures include the ones that seem to appear from nowhere ? Would be great to know how many there are in the country, it would also be very interesting to learn how many still exist world wide !!! Also does anyone know how many 260z 2 seaters are left in the uk ? oh & go on then while we are at it figures for the now ultra rare 2+2 260z . Am I right in thinking the 260 2 seater is the thinest on the ground now ?
Any info on the above would be great. Thanks.

More interesting is to know how many 240Zs have been imported and deduct that figure from the total left to see REALLY how many genuine UK cars remain !!!

They've all been fiddled and tampered with - there isn't one completely standard in original condition 240Z in the British Isles and Ireland.

There however restored cars kept or put back into original condition of which I'd say there remain less than 10 'cos I can count 5 off the top of my head.

There many more over here for various reasons.

Too much detail Ben - we'll take your word for it !

But Pmac has imported almost as many (well, nearly) as he's 'exported' - you seen his garage lately ?

How many 240's are actually in the uk that we know of please, someone must know surely. I know the world wide total was abit of a tall order, it would be very interesting to know the answer to that one.

The 240Z car I bought from ebay.. the blue one. Besides having lots of welding done in the past which is to be expected in a car of the 70's. Is quite standard as far as I can see. Its a genuine UK car. I dont think there can be many around. I have not seen one on the road in sheffield.. am I the only one in Sheffield? ..Am I alone.. Any Sheffield Z's out there?

I found more holes today.. no doubt I will find more later.

No Gwyn there is no "someone" with a definitive answer.. Never has been and there never will be.
We only have estimates and guesstimates.
The only thing we do know with any certainty is the fact that they are rare.
