Epiphany Gold: 1985 Nissan 300ZX

This post is part of DT's 2019 Day After Epiphany celebration. Legend has it that a wise man named Melchior visited the baby Jesus from the Far East on the 13th day of Christmas and he brought with him a gift of gold to signify that Jesus was a king.  I think that perhaps a gift of a gold car would have been better befitting the King of Kings, but what do I know?  Find this 1985 Nissan 300ZX here on eBay bidding for $5,600 reserve-not-met in Lakeland, FL with 3 days to go.
