      The prices are high because you need a perfect climate controlled garage with a dehumidifier to prevent it from rusting to death

      I had a very low mileage 280z that I restored twice and kept in a garage and still couldn’t keep the rust away

        Eventually, the whole body will be replaced with Bondo.

        My first car was a '71 Chevy Nova. Seemed like every weekend I was out out there working on it, fixing something or replacing something. My neighbor comes by and says "Chris, why don't you just get a new car?" I said, "I am."
        No one ever wished they didn't have a gun.

          Bought my dad a 76 Cordoba as a retirement gift... hes been looking for one for a while because he had one when he was younger. I wanted to get him a 69 road runner (he had one of those too) that was in rougher shape so that he had something to really work on in retirement but mom and my brother out voted me. He still loves tinkering on this thing and loves that he doesn't have to worry about it as if it was a numbers matching road runner.

                This thread is great. Mostly depressing, but still great.

                  If I'm not mistake isn't that a Fairlady? I'm just going by the placement of the mirrors. The Fairlady was modified I believe before import into the US.

                    If I remember mostly just rearward of the seats in a cross member was a big issue.

                      I had three different Dodge Challengers in the 70's (sold them all for $500 each in the 80's to pay for grad school), including a V-8 convertible with Hurst pistol grip shifter and another a big blockRT with shaker hood. Worst economic decision ever. I would love before I die to get back into a nice 70 or 71 with a four speed.

                      The problem with having to move out of NY State soon is that it's kept my plans to buy a classic car on hold.

                        You're right! I believe it may be a Fairlady. I was just looking for a random photo of a 240Z.
