So I found an '82 280zx in beautiful condition for having sat out in snow, rain, sleet, hail, sun, etc. for almost 12 years.  I contacted the owner and he told me he had no plans of restoring it and will give it to me for $1500.  There's almost no surface rust and the engine still runs after all this time.  I am planning on completely restoring it then in the future modding it as I make it through college and stuff.  There is a slight misfiring issue whenever it starts, but the owner says he thinks it's spark plugs, but to be safe i'm replacing the spark plugs, ignition coil, fuel filter, oil filter, and ignition distributor rotor to get it running smoother.  The driver side seat cover is torn, so I will also be getting new seat covers and also probably a dash cap since the old one has cracks all over it.  I will then use that to learn manual (I know I'm a disappointment, I've wanted to learn for so long, just never had the chance to).  I will post some pics of the car so you all can see the current condition and give updates as I find out more.  The plan is to have the car in 2 months, then get it back running within that month, then drive it for a week or so to learn stick then I will set it in the garage and start the internal restoration.  If anyone has any recommendations or if you find anything in the images, feedback would be very appreciated.
