    Default ebay Listings in Georgia

    It's a little unusual to see so many 240Zs listed at the same time in my neck of the woods.

    I've seen the last two in person. I know the seller of the third car. Chet is a member of the Georgia Z Club. This isn't the first Z he has restored.

    If I were looking for a 240Z - Chet's Red Z would be one I would buy. You can bet everything is done right to begin with - that is the only way he works. Chet is a principle in Sunbelt Performance - and they rebuilt my original BRE Engine - I wouldn't have trusted anyone else.

    I felt the white one had a rather poor level of detailing, especially since they were trying to sell it for $16,900 about a month or two ago. It seemed like a $10,000 car to me.

    Hi Steve:
    $10K "might" be a little low in todays market - we would have to see it in person. Nonetheless, I agree - poorly presented - and with 260Z Door Panels, nonstick radio and Green showing behind the rear deck carpet… you have to wonder…

    It would be encouraging to see values get back to where they were 6 years ago.. If the did more people might be encouraged to put a little more effort and money into refreshing and or restoring them.

    FWIW,
    Carl B.

    I was pointing out the green to my wife just about an hour ago. I saw the car in person at Caffeine & Octane three weeks ago. There wasn't much attention to detail, especially under the hood. I didn't try to look underneath, though, so I can't tell you anything about the floor pans or frame rails.

    I finally sold my Series 1 blue on blue automatic locally and I think that Chet might have a hand in the restoration. Can't wait to see it again.

    Carl, I talked with Chet today. He appreciated your endorsement of his work.

    The red Z was a no sale, Ebay at times makes no sense , here a clean specimen and no takers. The Z market is a complete puzzle .

    I'll see what's up with Chet's car. With the auction ended early, something's up.
