This is a great car... my loss can be your gain. I purchased this Z when I was 18 years old and I've had it for the last 7 years. I'm now working on a new project car and need to make room in my garage. This was my daily driver for many years, however it has just sat in my garage for the last year or so. It is a fully loaded, very nice 300zx, it has really nice 5 spoke 350Z rims (these alone cost me over $1000 with tires), upgraded Stillen headers, HKS intake. It is not the original motor, however it is a stock JDM 3.0 engine out of another 300zx. I have taken excellent care of this car over the years and it truly pains me to have to part with it.
The only bad news I have is there is a slight miss with the idle. My suspicion is that it is either an injector or spark plug. I have replaced both on another 300zx I own and can tell you that it isn't as big of a deal as it sounds, however these cars can be very tricky to work on. Even with this issue I firmly believe that this car, for this price, is the best value that you can find. The reality is this is a 20 year old car, and unfortunately they will come with some issues. I sold this car on eBay several months ago for $4500 however the buyer backed out on me at the last minute. I decided to keep the car, however reality has finally set in and I am now finally letting it go.... If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Also I recommend picking the car up and transporting it, not driving it. It has been sitting in the garage for a year now, so it is due for a tune-up.

Since its introduction in 2008, the Nissan GT-R has seen a steady increase of power and price almost every year, but the big news for the next-gen supercar might be an increase in production. Automotive News recently spoke with newly appointed GT-R chief engineer Kinishi Tanuma who said Nissan needs "more of a volume car." Nissan has sold a little more than 2,000 GT-Rs in the US since 2012 - 1,188 last year and 952 so far this year.

Of course, a key limiting factor in the GT-R's production is its hand-built engine. Currently, only four people are qualified to build the GT-R's twin-turbo V6, but Tanuma says a fifth is in training. Even if production numbers are raised, Nissan also wants to add more quality and value into the GT-R. There is still no word as to what kind of timeframe Nissan is looking to start pumping out more GT-Rs, but with a new Nismo model rumored to be bringing a two-second 0-60 time, demand is sure to be on the rise.
Nissan is working away on its ZEOD RC (Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car) which is still on pace for a Le Mans arrival in 2014. As of right now, the DeltaWing-shaped car's carbon-fiber tub and chassis have been completed. The next step will be installing the twin electric motors and fitting the seat of driver and GT Academy winner Lucas Ordóñez. If the current schedule sticks, the zero-emissions racer will hit a UK track for test laps in September.

But while those initial shakedown laps will be under full electric power, it's unclear whether the setup fielded in the UK will survive until Le Mans. Nissan itself says that it will be testing a number of "electrified" drivetrains ahead of the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans, which is a significant departure from race car design - usually, the teams know what's powering their car before they start building it.
"Just developing a single powertrain option in only 12 months would be a mammoth task but we're looking to carefully examine a number of options to ascertain which will be best suited for Le Mans," said Darren Cox, Nissan's global motorsport director. Take a look below for a video and press release from Nissan documenting the ZEOD RC's build process.
This is the Alpine LMP2 competitor you'll see contesting European endurance races this year, including The 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. Parent company Renault showed off the N36 racer at its atelier in Paris, the blue and orange a switch from the yellow, black and white livery Alpine wore last time it was seen in Le Mans way back in 1978 when it won the race.
The team will be run by Signatech-Nissan and the chassis will be powered by a Nissan engine. Nelson Panciatici and Pierre Ragues will contest World Endurance Championship rounds throughout the year, they'll be joined by endurance and IndyCar veteran Tristan Gommendy for Le Mans and Paul-Loup Chatin as the team's reserve driver.
The Alpine N36 will get into its first test this week at Paul Ricard, then experience its first racing miles at the European Le Mans Series round at Silverstone on April 13. The press release below has the full scoop, the photos above have the past and present in high-res glory.
