    How the age group has changed from people who could afford to own a 300zx back then to now

    Hey! Enough of that age discrimination sonny!
    Sure we're old-farts, but you still have to survive long enough to get to that lofty position.:p:zlove:

    With age comes wisdom(occasionally).:rofl::br:

    I paid around $20,000 for my Z back then. It also wasn't unusual to spend a few thousand dollars on buying aftermarket parts. Now a days a lot of members don't dare spend a couple hundred.
    I remember handing over a roll of cash for a set of 19" wheels and tyres back in the day also. You can pick up a Z for that kind of money now :(

    Yep. The Z32 has dropped down the pecking order significantly now. Back then it was more like how the 350Z is right now. Today, the Z32 is more like a Z31 was back then...with P Platers and first car buyers now owning them. Sadly the majority I see on the road now look like they've had the crap beaten out of them...the desire to own one has dwindled. I guess that happens after 25 years... :(

    STEVE ...I thought that we had established that your Convertible was not Mr Zee's brown/bronze job.

    It was on the the Gold Coast around 2009 and for sale as a repossession .... a bit run down and worse for wear, post Mr Zee.

    A defining element of the car was white leather upholstery.

    Yes, very much so... :)

    From what i can gather Barry it was his, bought by a chap at Moorooka, then he sold it to the chap i got it off at Kingston. And the upholstery was changed from white/sandstone seats to the black leather ones.

    We did a bit of homework trying too find out who did the original import plate, so i could get another plate. And it looks like there was only ever 3 cocoa bronze Zeds in Australia.

    RedZedMikey RZM should now be DZM

    I spied one the other day ... not cocoa bronze any more though! Paint code CK2, trim code Z on the Nissan build plate.

    About 5 years ago we had at least three in Sydney, all of which used to occasionally attend some of our cruises(although not all at the same time, LOL).:zlove:
