Sigh...I keep finding myself going back to that ebay auction of my old Yellow car. Based on the photos on ebay (I included them here) can someone tell me what damage the photos are showing? Not sure why I'm curious....but I am.

Read your story previously, and now that I have seen some actual pics, all I can say is wow glad you're ok.

This is all front clip damage. All parts holding fluids including the engine radiation and water windshield wiper sprayer reservoir have been removed (mostly likely as they were damaged beyond any repair) front fascia, driver's side air filter, both headlights. The last picture is of the deformed driver's side front suspension.

Thanks, SoCal....if the car is, in fact, repairable, how much would someone be looking at spending just to get the car back on the road and drivable?

You would need to do a complete and thorough estimate of the replacement parts, and look to see whether they have all the specs for a frame straightener. You'd have to place in on a frame straightener to see how bad the chassis is tweaked before moving forward on this project.

anything is reparable with the right amount of money
but it doesnt mean its reparable to a safety standpoint

also the fact the car is new to the market i doubt youll find used parts for replacement
you have to buy every thing new which will cost most likely an arm and a leg

im guesstimating base on the pictures i would say parts and labor easy 15k-20k(especilly with suspension damage and u find used parts)

your better off buying a new Z...which you did lol

Hello Mr. Parts Counter Person. I have this gas cap from a 370Z. How much will the parts be to get it back on the road and running?

I think you can sell just about anything on eBay....well, exept for other humans. Then again, I think that's been tried, too!

I wonder if one could buy it and then make a profit on parting the thing out?
