78' Black Pearl 280Z

I am back, wanted to say hello. Found this car after a 3 month search in rural Alabama for a price that would classify me a thief. Here she is, I wonder what it is worth? Sure is pretty to look at and everything works with very little rust. Interior perfect. Picked it up after a major snow storm and drove it 290 miles home with no problem what so ever. Only thing it needs is gas and an oil change. I snagged the wheels from my 83' ZXT, running Bridgestone Potenza RE-11.
Had to have a proper Z to show at the 2015 Zcon in my town.

Great promo video. There's a teeny weeny chance my car will be ready by July. What a road trip that would be. I-40 here we come ...

Was able to visit the ZCON in Phoenix for a half-day. Even that short time was quite fun.

Zcon 2015

Yes it would be a straight shot for you out I-40 East.

I wanted to add that I am merely a member of Delta Z and that we are, as a group, meeting with the ZCCA officials to put this convention together. Our people have been actively been helping, I only just recently got on board with trying to help.

No, not at this time Borini63, heck I just got it! 2 prior owners, 94k miles car appears to be extremely well cared for. Everything works, clock included. The paint could use freshening up though, [How did you replicate the stripes?] I have the original wheels, owners manual and factory delivered window stickers with the original sales invoice. When it quits raining I can get it out for some pictures of the interior. The interior has to be a solid 9.

Borini63, your car is drop dead beautiful!
