Unless a car falls under the ‘deliberate deceit’ category, such as a ringer, a cut and shut or badly botched/dangerous repairs, there is no “some poor sod getting ripped off”.Not being negative just stating a fact and it’s an opinion backed up by the fact that all those high price Zeds are still for sale months and months later or even years ,not slagging the car off for one minute it’s the jokers out there asking silly money and some poor sod getting ripped off which annoys me,yeah agree with the 240 bit ,that’s one reason I've got a couple of scoobies,done all the modern day boring rubbish and there were a few cars from the 70s that had better performance than a Z ,I had some of them ,showing me age there aren’t I,but yeah The Z is iconic in its own right,
IMO this is way over priced. I think the late 280z is a good car in its own right but will never be the same as a 240z. The first cars of a series generally command the highest prices when comparing similar cars. "Better" does not mean more valuable. Repainted and retrimmed does not mean restored and from the pictures this is not restored (just look at the door lock). I see this as a 25-30k car IMO. I don't believe prices have gone up much in the last 3 years.
