From the survey data received January 2006 (taken Sept 2005), Z31s showed the following:

RA057 2+2 manual 515 licenced; 207 SORN
RA058 2+2 auto 173 licenced; 137 SORN
RA059 2+2 turbo 125 licenced; 89 SORN
RA060 2+2 turbo auto 1 licenced; 0 SORN (yes these do exist - there are now at least 2 plus one 2 seater turbo auto...200ZR autos probably added in here too.

No category for 2 seater models, either in Z31 or Z32 data.

I find it hard to believe that these numbers (possibly propped up by a few misplaced Z32s) would have dropped to below 100 in just a few years...I'd ask for a recount or a refund!

Have a look in here!

Read the notes with the figures - our information is only as accurate as the information we receive from members. Many members don't let me know what cars they have (often more than one) or when they change them.

These are Department of Transport codes for the vehicle model categories as perceived by them and not, in some cases, corresponding to what we would have set up. As a consequence they make no distinction between coupe and 2+2 280ZX and there are no categories for coupe Z31 or coupe Z32 or Z32 NA of any description...

R2009 = 240Z
R2034 = 260Z
R2035 = 260Z 2+2
R2113 = 280ZX (I assume '79/'81 series manual)
R2114 = 280ZX auto ('79/'81 series)
RA035 = 280ZX 2+2 targa (you might see another problem here - do these include the early targa or only the '81/'83 series?)
RA036 = 280ZX 2+2 targa auto (as above)
Z31 - see previous post
RA183 = 300ZX turbo (Z32 models)
RA184 = 300ZX turbo auto (Z32 models)
RA384 = 350Z

Code for 370Z unknown at this point in time...

You can see that the categories (which were based around UK cars) now throw the data into confusion with the influx of import variants and the non-recognition of the 280ZX coupe, even though it was an official UK model '79 to '81.

You can see why DVLA mistakes creep into registration documents.

Although I am sure the information has been posted before, could we have the most up to date figures for remaining 260Z 2-seaters and 2+2 please. Just so nobody gets left out.

Invariably they hide in non-weather proof sheds where they become a more expensive resto every day

Does anyone other than Charlie Boy live near me in oxford? Haven't seen that orange 240 again.

Here's a spotting for you, while i was picking my green 240Z last year a restored and mint looking 240/260Z drove past. I was in a town/village near Packington at the top of the M42/A42. It was dark blue i think. Like I said, it looked mint!

Any ideas?
