I stopped to talk to a guy today that had a 260Z to see if he would sell it. He told me $3500 cash. It had some surface rust and at the bottom of each fender there was a hole about baseball size, otherwise the body was in decent shape. Engine looked like it needed some work, it looked like it had a major oil leak around the rear main seal. Probably needs rebuilt anyway, 98,000 original miles. Interior needs a lot of work, but no holes in the floor board. Not sure how much it will cost to restore, or if it will be worth it. I took some pictures of the car that I will upload later. Suggestions?

This one is a sideways angle of the rear of the engine where the oil leak is.

1k tops on that rust bucket...it'll take you lots of time and money to get all of the body restored. And if it doesn't run..the only thing you are really buying, is the shape and frame of a 260Z :)

I was thinking $1500-$1700 my self, but he said that it booked at $9000. When he told me that I just about laughed in his face.

Dude I turned down a guy who wanted $3000 on a mint 280z with like 75K miles. That thing isn't even worth $1000, and only should be bought if your thinkin about gutting it and making it a race car. Too much work to restore it man..
