    Something I thought could be interesting to share. Here's the guts of it to save you clicking through:

    Looking to get in touch with whoever owns either of these Nissan z32 300zx. Reward paid to whoever succesfully helps locate. I am a previous owner many years ago. Details below. I have VIN numbers for both to confirm.

    1992 non turbo 2 seater targa in black manual. Was last known sold in 2006 with full s1 veilside bodykit , duck wing, 16" speedy wheels. Plate BB932C South Aus.

    1990 twin turbo 2 seater in black manual. Was last known sold to someone working in Roxby SA in 2007 with 18" Blitz wheels? no spoiler. Plate WJG657 South Aus.

    Yes i am. Im not on facebook, do you know if theres a 300zx page for S.A or Australia?

    Yes, there is a Facebook page for Australia called Aus300zx. It's Facebook so it's just a disorganized, unsearchable feed of crap, but it gets a lot more traffic than here so it might be worth a shot, someone might know someone who has what you're looking for.
    Also you could try creating a wanted ad on Facebook Marketplace in the vehicles section, might get more attention.

    Did you use the SA govt EzyReg app? Looks like both cars come up as unregistered. Makes me wonder if they really are, or if they come up like that if the plate has been changed or if they've been taken interstate.

    Will do, Yes ive checked ezy reg. , from previous cars when they get registered interstate the plate no longer exists here. So im hoping that both cars are still in S.A being there still linked to the cars. Transport SA will not give out any details either.

    This.
    Irrelevant, but funnily enough my Zed was from SA too. Definitely not one of Dans' though.

    1 of them was registered for less than a year after i sold it. Not a good sign...

    Hmm... Maybe the best you could hope for is that the new owner might've blown a head gasket and then left it sitting in a shed since, hoping to fix it one day.

    Or maybe had some corroded electrical connectors and a mechanic told him the engine was fuct? This has happened before, has led to some "barn find" Zeds in great nick for very low prices.

    Was unable to locate my old 300zx, i did happen to find and purchase a factory Twin Turbo 2 seater manual slicktop in ultra red. All confirmed by build plate... Quite a hard car to find!

    How much is a genuine z32 slick top tt 5 speed in good condition worth these days?

    Ended up purchasing another Z, even if i didnt i doubt i would have purchased this back. It looks extremely rough in photos so i can only imagine what its like in the flesh..

    Its done less than 10,000kms in 15years. Mech. it was A1 with full Jdm/Aust. service history on time.

    Picture below is my other Z i was searching for. This 1 i would still consider even if its a shell..

    Ryzan it looks a bit Mad Max spec in those recent pics. It's a long way home from there.

    Viewed the car yesterday as he was passing through. Nice bloke, had a good chat. He hasnt owned it for long. Its sat in a yard for the last 10years. Last rego ran out 2010 / 5.
    Its a real shame, requires a full resto. , so much dust throughout the car.. Itd be a nightmare cleaning the interior of it alone!
