It's has been along time since I was on here but I am very close to returning to the 'Z fold'! Back in Nov 2008 (can't believe it's nearly 10 years ago) I bought a 350Z after months of looking/watching the classifieds;
To say I loved the car was an understatement. I enjoyed every minute and every drive. However, with the arrival of kids a little while later, the two-seater was on borrowed time. I managed to hold out for a further 18 months after our first son was born but in the end I had to sell it as I just I couldn't afford to get a second car. I remember the day the Zed went - for all the wrong reasons Ever since, I have longed to own another Zed. I had (have) the bug and couldn't shake it. If I see one coming the other way I still to this day drop the window so I can listen to it! So, getting to the point... I am in the position now where I can purchase a second car and it will be a Zed (370Z specifically). It will become my daily drive with my existing car being for when I need to get the kids about. I am quite picky about my requirements (that's ok right?) and would like the following:
370Z GT in black (black-black (Ebisu?) not Rose Black that can look purple in the light at an angle)
11 plate or newer (I have a personalised 11 plate that I want to put on it)
Coupe (not a soft top)
<50k miles (I plan on keeping the car for a long time so fewer miles the better)
There are some examples on autotrader and I test drove one last weekend but it was not in good shape aesthetically or mechanically. I don't have a massive budget which is why most of the dealer options on Autotrader are out of my price range or just too far away (Scotland!). Looking to spend between £13k to £15k but of course depends on the car. I'm based just north of Cambridge.
So posting a speculative thread to see if any nissansportz owners are thinking about selling - please let me know! It would be nice to purchase from an enthusiast who has looked after the car and given it the love it deserves. Not sure if this post is therefore in the right section as didn't see any actual cars wanted in the wanted section. Mods, if more appropriate, please move this thread to the wanted section.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to 'returning'!
so at the moment there are no Zed's within reasonable distance that meet my needs so posting a speculative thread to see if any nissansportz owners are thinking about selling. I am after the following:
