    Default Where do I find a body??

    So after buying my Michigan 280z and tearing into it only to discover more rust than metal, I have decided to find a new body in a state which doesn't eat cars :P. So! I am in the market for a 75-78 280z body with minimal/no rust, though beyond that a project body would be great. I am looking to spend 1500 or so, and the most important thing to me is that it has as little rust as possible; if it needs interior work or electrical or other parts that's fine, just NO RUST. A friend will be travelling to Florida sometime soon, so if there is anything between Michigan and Florida that would be great. Also, if anyone knows of any good auction sites or other websites where I can find nice-ish bodies with in my price range, that would really help as well!! Thanks everyone

    Q"Where do I find a body??"
    A The morgue?




    From my experience, Calif. Arizona, and Texas are great buy sometimes great Z's can show up anywhere.
    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    I see entire cars that run, drive with little to no rust that can be picked up for $1500-$2500. All need some work, but sounds like a much better starting point than what you have....look at Craigslist in Sacramento and SF bay area.

    You can do a national search on Craigslist using "Search Tempest". It's amazing how many Zs there are in the SW, and for very reasonable money. The attached photo is a 240Z in Bullhead City, AZ for a grand...and it runs!
