Seller RA4844 says:

Need to get it lifted for good pics, but I’ll see what I can do–

Sspemba says:

Can u post any service records?

Seller RA4844 says:

No Service records to post. Not much to show other than oil changes (due to time passing…not due to mileage) and when I had the breaks replaced some years ago.

scott3avery says:

Paint – how recently was the painting done? Are before/after shots available?

Seller RA4844 says:

It look like this when I bought it 10 years ago. Sorry, no before shots– and no touch-ups or paint jobs since. So, paint job is at least 10 years old. I have always kept it garaged and rarely drove it in that amount of time–and never drove it in bad weather–that’s why it still looks great. Heck, I just wiped it down before I took these pics. It’s a pretty clean looking ride.

scott3avery says:

Drivers side headlight appears to show circular defects. I are these reflections? Did or does this car have headlight covers?

Seller RA4844 says:

No defects in the headlights whatsoever…reflections from sun I presume.

scott3avery says:

Ok. Was hoping that’s the case. Did not see issue on passenger side.
In video you mention ac not working up to your expectations. Has it been that way throughout your owning the car? Is it repairable or a known issue associated with year and model of vehicle?

Seller RA4844 says:

No, nothing like that. The blower and heat works fine. It is a freon issue– may need conversion from R12 to R134a.

scott3avery says:

Makes sense. Ty.

Seller RA4844 says:

Sorry for the delay to everyone interested in the Z– but I assure you this site is NOT a Scam. The people running this site are not only legit, there are more than generous with their time, help and expertise. I could not have put this together without them.

I’m NOT on-line 24/7…and have been unplugged and out of town during the holiday. I will answer all questions now that the great people at Classic Vehicle Auctions have gone to great lengths to inform me that there are questions and request:

1. Yes, title is clear
2. No oil spots or spots of any kind when parked.
3. Picks of the undercarriage are forthcoming– need to get it lifted first.
4. Not sure what “links” you are referring to–

larry Miller says:

I guess that he doesn’t want to sell it… no answers. This site must be a scam?

Hello Larry,

We apologize for the delayed response to your question on the 5th. We are working on obtaining this information.

We are not a scam website and do apologize for your frustration in getting a speedy response in this situation. We will do our best to get you an answer shortly!

Stuart Cannold says:

Does the Z have a clear/clean title?

Hello Stuart, all vehicles listed on our website will have a clear/clean title. It’s part of the requirements of the submission.

larry Miller says:

does it leave any oil/fluids spots on the floor when parked?
What is the cover over the useable links for? Can you show pics of the links?
Can you show pics of the frame rails and underside of the car?

Hello Larry,

We have reached out to the owner to obtain this information. We will add pictures and let you know as soon as the buyer has responded and/or provided the requested information.

Thank you!
