then there will be cars that are shown as registeded but have subsequently been scrapped..
etc etc.

My best guesstimate is a figure below 200. thats all 240Zs here in the UK. Taxed, sorned, and unregistered.

And I reckon there are between 100 and 200 cars in similar states over here with perhaps less than 100-150 on the roads. Note that there were half as many 240Zs imported in France 800+so abigger percentage of cars have survived and this effect is repeated up until at least the 280ZX (no 260Z 2 seaters officially imported into France).

So, take those +/- 200 UK 240Zs and subtract the quantity of imported 240Zs and be alarmed at how many orginal UK cars are left.......and left on the road atm.

The last official figure we had was about 160 240Zs either taxed or SORN'd. The number had been growing by a few a year as imports resurrected otherwise dead shells...

260Zs probably less than this now.

280ZXs probably down to the last 20 or so...

240Zs were hardly ever seen for sale, now with the introduction of the www & Ebay you find 'lost' examples popping up for sale every so often in varying conditions.

Keep looking they are still out there...I personally was lucky enough to find a 'one owner' example through a fine art & antiques sale!

I've not seen an s30 on the road in the East of Norfolk and Suffolk ever. I know there is a 260 2 seater in someone's dads garage slowly going the way of all flesh but that's it. It is a very, very uncommon car nowadays. So if you have one, love it (not to the point of not using it because it's so much of a car to use) and show it off as often as possible because it's gone, there won't be any more.

That sounds about right Pete, I was informed about 3 yr ago that there was 180 left in the uk, you & I have not broke many since then have we Pete ? + there are a few imports arriving here now & then.

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

They are certainly on the up and yes there's plenty in storage/barns that we don't know of. I was in the local car parts shop last week to buy a fuel pump for the 240. He didn't have one in stock but rung his mate who lives across the road, to see if he had a spare. He lives less than 2 miles from me and has a number of immaculate s30's that he hasn't used for years so they are out there. I did see if he was interested in selling but no joy there.
