    Beautiful! So you're moving to the 21st century...370Z is nice but its not a 240Z. I'd like to see it. I've been debating on restoring my 73 or just purchase one like yours and sell what I have.

                Well it is alot of money for an old car so be sure what you get. As you see, there is a difference.

                  Yup, its a minefield at times, having restored older cars previously,,its a matter of evaluating condition versus effort versus risk. Each test drive is an educational experience (despite having owned a 260 previously..too long ago).

                      condition and performance, soundness, history all contribute.

                            You could always try the real acid test and list it on ebay. A world of buyers will bid and tell you what they really think it's worth. I've learned that sometimes it is a hard realization the vehicles aren't worth as much as we think. We can say that according to this book or that appraisal the value is "X" but in reality, it's only worth what someone will pay for it. A really good car will bring good money...that's a given. I wish you both luck in your sale of 2 fine vehicles.

                              I do find it surprising how the early Z cars still only have a niche appeal compared to their American built contemporaries. I'd take a car with handling which wants to be hustled over one with more power but that wallows in corners like a beached whale. ScottR and Curtis have a couple of the nicest 240s that I've seen. But I have to say joker72z's point hit the nail on the head, although a specialised classic car auction might be a better bet than ebay. If I wasn't buying my first house soon I'd be beating a path to your door though. Best of luck with the sale, hopefully the nicer weather will start to bring out the buyers.
