    Hi guys,

    I've decided to sell my Z, it has been a VERY hard decision to come to but ultimately after owning one for 7 years now (or is it 8?) it's just time for a change. This will NOT be my last Z, I just need a break for a year or two and I also want different things from a car these days.... having owned a modified car is not something that thrills me as much as it used to, maybe I'm getting old but I really don't boost it up that often anymore, it's certianly never necessary to put your foot flat down on the street and hit high boost unless you're in the mood. The next Z will either be a convertible once prices in Japan become a bit more reasonable, or a dedicated unregistered track Z.

    The car was imported late 2002, basic info:

    1989 Nissan 300ZX
    Twin Turbo
    2 seater
    Targa roof
    Around 110,000km
    No accident history

    Has been very well looked after, I really can't even remember all of the work I've done there's so much, I have done a lot of preventative maintenance and so on, and whenever somethign was replaced or fixed no corners were cut. Interior, mechanical and exterior condition are all very good, the engine bay has obviously had a lot of work done, if you are more pedantic than I you could probably say it needs a decent clean, otherwise it did win best engine bay at Gilgandra 2004 :)

    Laser etched throttle cable strip
    Various other bits and pieces chromed and polished, again I've done a lot and can't keep track of it all.

    Also comes with a variety of spares if you want, plus a few uninstalled mods, we could go around the garage and see what you'd like.

    I really don't want to think about how much I've spent on the car, the previous owner in Japan spent around $30,000 before I got it (although he got a bit ripped off on some stuff in my opinion :) and I've done a lot since. I have a list of all of the mods and price paid when the car was owned in Japan as well as partial service history. The speedo reads 50,000km however this was reset to 0 when the rebuilt engine went in so that is the age of the engine only, before that the car had done around 60,000km (according to service records) hence the 110,000km total km on the chassis. Many of the aftermarket parts installed in Japan (suspension etc) was put in at this time so most of those parts are 50,000km old as well. Timing belt was replaced when the new engine was installed along with a lot of other new preventative maintenance parts.

    Please call me on 0410 334 407 or email if interested, I'm in Melbourne but interstate enquiries are welcome. Also please keep this thread related to enquiries relating to the sale of the car, if people want to post up about me being a traitor etc that can happen elsewhere :)

    Price: $21,500.
    I believe this to be a VERY realistic figure, I know you don't get back what you spend on a car but this car has had a LOT of work done to it.

















    There are even more pictures here, not some are from a few years back so some things will be different, please ask if there's any confusion. I also have probably over 1,000 pics of the car documenting work on it and the like. Also please note that I'm hosting pics on the J-Spec Imports server however this is a private sale and has nothing to do with J-Spec :)

    I'm offering the car to aus300zx.com members as that's where I'd much rather see it go and will not be advertising it elsewhere for a few weeks.

    You're a fake and a phony and I wish I never laid eyes on you!!!!

    Sorry to hear that you are selling Ben but as always, everything you do is for a good reason!

    Just a note to whoever is interested in this car, it is awesome to drive, I have driven it once and it ran like a dream!

    Very neat Z!!

    Good luck with the sale dude!

    What a coincidence. I have been reading your tech articles on headlights

    First of all, thank you for your easy-to read tech posts.

    It is such a pity to lose another zed-dedicated forum member who has been godfather to all of us.:(:(:(

    However, separation leads to another new meeting or reunion. Hopefully, reunion in this case.:zlove:

    BTW, did you chromise(excuse my spelling)or paint the dark grey plastic bit of your headlights with silver colour?:cool:

    Good luck with sale. Wish I had money to buy your zed:|

    What a beautiful beast

    Benny_C About as subtle as...

    Umm ......

    We won't be loosing this particular forum member - as he is the man who created this forum and also administers it. :LOL:

    - BTW, I had a thorough 'drooling' over this beast at Coona, I think $21,500 is a bargain price and worth more. It is immaculate, the new owner will be extremely lucky.

    Good luck Ben. :zlove:

    Kamikaze: the headlights were plastic chromed by an electoplater (I looked up electroplaters in the yellow pages).

    Argggh, why do you do this to me now :S right at the wrong time to be buying another zed....:angry:

    12 months time I probably would have bought it on the spot...take an IOU?:p

    Gotta say I feel where you're coming from Audiobuzz, I was in exactly the

    same position a few weeks back. Found the perfect zed but I couldn't get enough cash together. Why can't we all be born with more money :(
