    Good to hear, as much as the mirrors might be popular we should celebrate a good original car staying in one piece.

    They are the long stalk version though, not right for your 510!

    Probabaly but then nobody bought it at auction for £20k - it's already competing with the 2x seater Zs and it reminds me of this car whose price goes up and down like a yo-yo - it was at £17k last year : https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C925428

    And I know who they bought it from down in Bordeaux for around €12k (£10.5k) and done nothing since 'cept transport it back to Blighty. Even the advert text is old - they managed to sell the other, with a sunroof, for £18.5k I think and I know that seller too (€11k) - £9.6k.

    Maybe not selling/price yo-yo'ing is something to do with the fact that it isn't what they say it is...?

    Agreed, there is a LOT of ignorance concerning 'our' cars - journalists, pro sellers....

    There’s an exceptional amount of ignorance around the JDM cars in particular...

    Hardly surprising when anything in English is drowned out by Trump-style fake-newZ from the USA.

    In that white "1970" car's case, I'd be more worried about identity-swapping shenanigans than innocent, well-meaning 'ignorance'.

    Seriously, I reckon he's just an ignorant door-knob.

    I assume it's registered with the DVLA as a 260Z.

    Perhaps they have hit a brick wall with bureaucracy?

    Even if it’s registered with the DVLA as a 260Z, that doesn’t mean it is one. It maybe a model comparable to a 260Z, but it is its own thing, with specific features that a 260Z wouldn’t have. Those mirrors they removed, and several hundred pounds worth of rally clock for example.

    Hopefully whoever buys it understands/figures out what it is and doesn’t f**k it up changing stuff.
