Hiya guys (and girls!) Recently spotted a rather nice 260z, thing is, it's a 2+2 which doesn't bother me since I love the looks and the performance doesn't really suffer hardly. However, the listing says it's had a new stainless steel exhaust (how far through I'm not sure), new door sills, new headlamp cowls and something else that I forgot. Thing is, all the equipment looks to be original (and in just the kinda state you'd probably expect from interior that old) except for the carbs which are the round-tops from the 240z. On closer inspection of the engine bay photo from the listing it looks like there's a fair amount of rust. What I need advice on is how far you guys reckon it looks like its gone, if it's possible to salvage (and bets on if/how well it might run when I try it before buying) and how to set about treating this if I buy the car. I'm not entirely sure what details are wanted so for now I'll post the photos and if anyone wants any more details just holler (though I'll probably add some more myself anyway). For reference the guy wants Â£2k but I'm thinking of just offering him about Â£800 based on the state of the engine/engine bay (which almost has something that looks like bondo on the far side...) http://db.tt/zLgRsiQh http://db.tt/1gKwuRRh http://db.tt/RfN1Wzuv http://db.tt/g9GVuxg4 http://db.tt/bVIavZSx Many thanks for the advice/input guys!
