No, haven't seen it yet.

I'm a bit leery about buying something I can't start and drive.

Still didn't get up there today.

I think a 300zx fits pretty perfectly into all the parameters I'm looking for. Remember, I don't want a RACE car... just a fun track day car. Cheap. RWD.

Yes I would want to look at it first. I thought I was going to be able to make a trip up to Jax this week to look at a couple that I had in mind, but this week turned out to be crap for me. Now I'm about to start 5 12hour shifts in a row, so I can't get up there or even look at any down here till next week.

This is one that Ted posted a couple weeks ago. I've watched it go from $2500, to $1500, and now to $1000.

Patience.

Going to look at it Thursday.

But for that price, he says it doesn't come with the soundsystem.

Good. Now I don't have to tear it all out.

If the grey one doesn't work out, I might have to travel a bit north to check this out. Another thousand-dollar Datsun.

Just out of curiosity, how much would it cost me for a master cylinder, head gasket, and timing belt on an '86 300zx na at Franz?

No purchase yet, just seeing if an $800 car, + this expense = good deal.

WOW
worst case is $2760.00
Lots of labor time for headgaskets and timing belt
