I have 54 plate, standard UK Spec, Gunmetal 350Z coupe with 95K miles which I have owned from new. Last week it overheated in traffic when the sensor controlling the electric cooling fans failed, this has caused a small hairline crack in the crankcase between the oil pressure sensor and the oil pressure relief blow off valve. It can’t be fixed in-situ, at least that’s what my garage is telling me, but the costs of pulling the engine to effect a repair (or replace the engine with a short block recon unit) are prohibitive to me being able to fix it. So, with a heavy heart, it’s time for me to say goodbye to it and walk away.
But, if someone could DIY it then it might be a workable project.
The car is, apart from a cat-back stainless exhaust, factory stock. It’s tidy and genuine but not pristine, there are some stone chips, the door skins have some light marks from other car doors, the nearside door mirror has some small, repaired, damage. The alloys have been refurbed but would need to be done again at some point.
I’d like to think it has some value, so make me an offer maybe? However I’d be happy if someone else could get enjoyment from a can that has brought me much enjoyment and many grin inducing drives over the years.
If you’re interested please reply to this message or DM me.
I think my garage will be OK to hold on to it for a week or so, possibly longer if someone is genuinely interested but beyond that I’ll have to let them dispose of it. Obviously it currently isn’t driveable so would need to be transported away.
