That's sad. It looks like a GT4 too (or maybe just a late one?)

Wheels arent dark enough for a late one so probably a GT4...

It looks like Ebisu Black paint, so they must be late HR wheels. If "the kid" drives a Yaris too he's obviously someone of taste, but it reads like he's obviously driving it wrong.

 

BCH Policing shouldn't be too smug though, as they've overdone it with the apostrophe.

Yep nothing wrong with Yaris drivers :). Ive seen adults do more damage than that too. Hope it was the kids (correct use of apostrophe) own Z and not a borrowed one

Thinking about it, I suspect the Zed didn't belong to the kid. The wisdom, etc to save the Zed for best and use something else otherwise takes a little longer to develop. And twenty yard fishtails in a Yaris is quite a challenge. Even though the boot isn't a bad size, if you move the rear seats forward. :D

The saddest thing is another one biting the dust.

On the upside the remaining well cared for cars have access to more spare parts  :lol:

You should both be deeply ashamed of yourselves.

 

Apropos nothing, I wonder if all of those wheels survived intact . . ? :whistle:

You beat me to it with the apostrophe!

 

I also disapprove of the police sneering at 'kids' (no apostrophe). That's like saying all elderly people should stop driving just because one of them causes a crash, falsely claims to have comforted the victims, gets a brand new car the next day and is seen driving around without a seat belt. Honestly!...

 

Assuming the Z was you, Michael, I'd have a word with them cops, misrepresenting you as a kid. What were you doing down south anyway?

Don't think it's a GT4 as the seat looks tan colour.

Interesting stats. So never more than 171 (of the 176) registered. And 17 no longer with us.

Regarding wheels, it could have had a set that had been replaced on anothet GT4.

It could well be that the missing 6 were not correctly registered and just went into the general '350Z pot'.  Just 17 gone to the great scrap yard in the sky is quite a good survival rate I think!

Still dropping off in numbers. Anyone with an unmolested GT4 or any unmolested 350Z can watch the values rise as numbers dwindle.

So in one year a net loss of 8 (2 more in use but SORN down 10). I think thats surprisingly low for a 14 year old model.
