  1. Looks very 80's-i-fied. Like someone wanted Black Gold but applied to a 240z. Get some period correct wheels, get rid of those wheel arch accents and rocker panel paint. That's about it.

    And holy crap, working aircon in a 240z? Been a loooooong time since I've seen that.

    1. Just visited the auction site - the valves are out of adjustment for sure, and it really does sound like there's a misfire (as JB1025 reported below). You can see just how much the engine shakes the car at idle by looking at the battery access cover dancing while the hood is up starting at 1:59 in the video.

      The interior of this car makes mine look good, and that's tough to do.

      The rear hatch area, naturally, is crumbling and rusty (in the pics). That will most definitely allow exhaust gasses back into the cabin with the windows open. Good thing it has aircon.
