My friend has picked up another Z for his collection. I don't have many pictures of it but it looks really nice.

What a clean looking ZX! Was it a local find or did he get it over the internet?

Semi local, about 2 hours drive. The car was near Philadelphia.

Yes very clean looking, I like the wheels and silver paint. I want to say this car has about 70k miles on it, non-turbo and 5 speed.

That is a good looking 280ZX. Must be torture for you. :mrgreen:

He's killing me John. :mrgreen:

At least he lets me drive them. We get together now and then to play cars. I'll take one and he takes one and off we go, great way to spend 1/2 a day!

Jay,

Here's a hypothetical question: What if your friend offered you the car for the same price he paid for it, would you? Or is there no Z that can ever replace what you lost? It looks like your friend has a few fun toys to play with. Enjoy. :mrgreen: :) :thumbs_up:

Howie

Howie, I know no other Z could have replaced the one I sold in 1985.
I could have owned at least 2 or 3 of them during the 2 decades "my" car and I were apart, but I felt somehow "related" to #2807 and just never wanted a different one.

I have a feeling Jay might get to drive his old Z again someday, and hey...ya' just never know what the future holds. 8)

I want to see pictures of his tears the first time he sees it again. I cried like a kid, sitting alone in a farmyard driveway, the first time I laid eyes on FLSHBK again. No apologies, no shame. One of the happiest moments in my lifetime.

Hi Howie,

At this time I'm not really in a "buying" position, so I think I'd pass on the opportunity if it presented itself. Under different circumstances I think I'd consider it. But either way, getting to drive them every now and then is really fun. And I like sharing them here because you appreciate them too, and who doesn't like pictures of Z's?

Like Frank said, MY Z will always be the 260 I sold. I have a connection to that one that's hard to explain. He's got more hope than I do about owning it again someday, I'd be very surprised if that happened. I'm really glad it found a good home though.

Jay

At one point I saw the for sale ad, I think it was a 1979. Haven't yet seen it in person but it sure looks great in the photos. I didn't ask what he paid either. I think the ad had it listed at $16,500.
