Nissan Noob, thinking of buying a 75 s30 Turbo 5spd

Not a bad deal i guess. $1000
75 280z Turbo 5spd, body kit
it was a father son project and the kid started messing w/ drugs so they sold it. The owner says it needs a fuel pump. ive read a few tech threads here and its possible thats the issue.
it has been sitting for 9 yrs.
the ad reads..
have two 75 both have very nice bodys 5 speed 280 zx turbo car new pipes and muffler loud sounds good , got 2,000 in ground efects on car nice car nice leather interior mag wheels and black one is 2+2 4speed 75 model both needs a fuel pump but they run good black car needs restoring has nice interior in car have title will sell for 1,500 both cars or trade let me no what you have thomas phone call anytime or will sell one car at a time for 1000 each if dont want both give better deal if buy both 1,500 for both
Ill prob only get the red one for 1k.

Im a die hard Chevy fan and restore old Muscle cars for a living. And I used to own a (covers mouth and mumbles) mitsubishi3000gt *cough. Yeah so i know how the new stuff works too. A 70's EFI maybe a switch though.

I most likely just sold my 60 Impala so ill have some play money to do what ever. Bigger turbo, intercooler, Fuel sys, Ignition upgrade etc.. (i hate the phrase "mod") but any maintenance / upgrade suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Mainly just wanted to know what im gettin into before i buy.

Sounds like a great deal providing there's no rust.

big second ^^^ barf in my mouth "ground effects", that rear should be first thing to go. lol. for 1k and no rust with the turbo driveline already swapped, i'd say pretty great start. just be careful with starting a motor that has sat for 9 years. maybe you'll get lucky and find a stash of drugs to make some money

ditch the rear bumper and whatever matches it and you've got a good deal.

The rear bumper holds your can of Coke so well though... like your tools go in the front headlight buckets while you're working on the car.
