YOU ARE BIDDING ON MY ONLY MODIFIED 240Z IN THE Z MECCA COLLECTION. I AM SAD TO SAY THIS CAR MUST GO AS I JUST ACQUIRED ANOTHER LOW VIN NUMBER 1969 PRODUCTION CAR AND I JUST DON'T HAVE THE ROOM TO KEEP THEM BOTH. THIS RUST FREE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CAR WAS BUILT IN THE LATE 80'S. IT ONLY HAD TWO OWNERS SINCE THE FERRARI CONVERTIBLE CONVERSION WAS COMPLETED. I ACQUIRED THE CAR IN 2001 FROM A MARINE STATIONED AT CAMP PENDLETON AND DECIDED TO BUILD A HIGHLY MODIFIED POWERHOUSE WITH ALL THE COOL BELLS AND WHISTLES. MOTOR HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REBUILT, BALANCED AND PORTED, FITTED WITH CUSTOM T3/4 TURBO, INTERCOOLER, CRANK SENSOR, ELECTROMOTIVE TECH 3 FUEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, 100 PSI BOSCH FUEL PUMP, CUSTOM BILLET FUEL RAIL, HIGH VOLUMN INJECTORS, MSD PLUG WIRES, CUSTOM PUCK CLUTCH DISC AND PRESSURE PLATE, AND 3 INCH CUSTOM ALL STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST. IT'S PULLED BY A ZX 5 SPEED AND ZX R200 3.5 GEAR RATION REAR END. THIS MONSTER PRODUCES A CONSERVATIVE 300 HP AT THE WHEELS AT 12 PSI. A FEW OF MY CRAZY TURBO Z FRIENDS PUSHED ME TO BOOST TO 20 PSI TO SEE WHAT THIS BEAST WOULD DO BUT I AM AT THE AGE WHERE I AM NO LONGER INVINSIBLE AND HAVE NO DESIRE TO CRASH AND BURN. THIS CAR IS SCARY ENOUGH AND I WARN THE WINNER OF THIS AUCTION TO PLEASE BE CAREFUL. IT WILL KILL YOU IF YOU ARE NOT AN AVID DRIVER.
CAR COMES WITH A BLACK CANVASS TOP THAT SNAPS INTO PLACE. TOP IS IN LIKE NEW CONDITION AS ALL THE PREVIOUS OWNERS INCLUDING ME ONLY DROVE THE CAR DURING THE NICEST WEATHER. INTERIOR OF CAR COMES WITH NEW PIONEER AM/FM CD PLAYER AND NEW 6X9 SPEAKERS AND TWO TWEETERS. DASH WAS REPLACED BRAND NEW AND DYED TAN AT TIME OF CONVERSION AND IS STILL CRACK FREE.
CAR IS BEING OFFERED WITH NO RESERVE. $1000 DEPOSIT VIA PAY PAL DUE IN 48 HRS. BALANCE DUE 7 DAYS AT CLOSE OF AUCTION VIA CASH OR WIRE TRANSFER ONLY. BIDDERS ON EAST COAST CAN USE MY PRIVATE SHIPPER FOR TRANSPORTING CAR. CONTACT HUGH SHILLITO AT 1-828-461-0700 FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE.

If there's a trend in the auto industry we can firmly get behind, it's the small, light and affordable rear-drive coupe. The positive critical reception to the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins has encouraged other manufacturers to look at building their own rear drivers, and even a few to show actual concept cars based on the idea. The Chevrolet Code 130R from 2012 and more recently, the Nissan IDx twins that were first shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show both come to mind, as does the brand-new Kia GT4 Stinger Concept.

Nissan trotted out the IDx Nismo and the IDx Freeflow for another showing in Detroit and we'll admit to being totally smitten with both cars. Again. The duo draw inspiration from the iconic Datsun 510, a lightweight, affordable rear-driver that remains a cult favorite decades after production ended.
Now, a report from our friends at AutoWeek reveals that we may, possibly, hopefully see a production IDx, provided fans make a strong enough case for it. "It's in the plan," Nissan product boss Andy Palmer told AW. According to the report, Palmer said the IDx is "into the first sage of the development process. The next stage is project validation and then looking at the business case. It's no one's intent to waste millions of the company's money, so obviously we have a good feeling about this one."
You can add Fiat to the admittedly short list of automakers considering a low-cost brand to rival Dacia. The inexpensive Eastern European brand from Renault-Nissan has performed on the balance sheet like a premium model line, and the money the alliance is taking off the table is encouraging other players to deal themselves in. Pretty soon Nissan's Datsun sub-brand will join the Dacia party, going on sale in Russia, Indonesia and India and will claim even more rubles, rupiahs and rupees for the parent company. Volkswagen recently said it will make a decision this year on a budget line for the Chinese market. With the euthanasia of Lancia and plans to move the Fiat brand upmarket, company CEO Sergio Marchionne wonders aloud to Automotive News Europe whether there could be room for a new budget brand underneath Fiat.

We're told that the initiative has been in the idea box for five years and even moved to the stage of name considerations, like Innocenti, but worries about profit kept it from realization. If such a range were to be developed, Marchionne says it couldn't be built in Italy and stay within budget, and the company is "analyzing its manufacturing capacity outside of Europe to see if a low-cost brand is viable."
