1974 Datsun 260Z
2 seater (converted 2+2)
For a 1974, this car is in great shape. Very little rust on the body, new tires a couple of months ago, super-cool leopard print seat covers, etc.
In July 2003, something blew a big hole in the engine. I bit the bullet and had it replaced with a (supposedly) low mileage engine from Texas. All the work was finally done in September 2003. Well, then in January the engine started making a terrible noise when I was just out of the parking lot. I turned around, headed home, and I've only just gotten it back over to the garage. It turns out there are pieces of metal in the engine and it would need another one. I'm not going through that again.
I'd like to get $1000 for the damn thing.
