I am looking at buying a 280Z within the next week or so. I am going to look at the car in a few minutes but just wanted to see if anyone had any pointers for things to look out for. If these cars have timing belts, when do they need replacing?
The car is a white coupe, it has louvers and headlight covers. The owners says the car has 100k some original miles and that the car has been garaged for the last 16 years. He says it starts right up and has no mechanical issues that he is aware of. The car has Recaro seats and it comes with 3 sets of wheels. When i spoke to the owner yesterday he said it only has a small amount of rust behind the door where the water drains. From the pictures the car looks great, but I will take some pics while I am there today.
He is asking $5000 for the car, but I am going to try and talk him down to $4500 or lower.
What do you all think?
