Default My third Z, first 370

Hi Everybody. I have had two 1979 280zx's, one new in 1979 and one I got in 2012 to relive my youth. I still have the latter one. But I wanted to get a new Z car and I finally got my chance. I picked up a 2020 sport touring with only 6,000 miles. It's exactly what I wanted. It's fast and beautiful. Here is a photo, and also one of my Zs hanging out together.

The 280 looks solid How long have you had it for and how many miles are on it ?

I got it eight years ago. It had 56,000 miles and only two owners. It's up to 80k miles now. It was a very clean car when I bought it, but needed a lot of mechanical work to make it reliable and more fun. I replaced pretty much everything that could break and leave me stranded on the side of the road (radiator, fuel pump, belts, hoses, etc...). Also got a new air conditioner put in and the suspension system replaced. It's really a gem now. Looks and drives like I'm in a time machine and it's early 80s. My wife thinks I should sell it and only have one fun car. I tend to disagree.

I wouldn't sell it either if I had one.

I would disagree, too. How much does she want for it?
