The Purchase: 1984 Nissan 300ZX

After deciding to enter LeMons Detroit 2009 (, we needed a car. After two weeks of fruitless car searching, we finally found our Lemon. On Tuesday I went with Ben Reichard and Chrissy Kaltenecker in Ben's '90 4DSC to pick up our LeMons car: a 1984 Nissan 300ZX GLL 2-seater.

The car was located in Holland MI, over 2 hours away. The only problem with the car: The slave cylinder doesn't work sometimes in the wet. Tonight's forecast: rain, and lots of it.

Seller was asking $1000 and we bought it for $750. We should have no problems selling at least $500 of stuff off of this car. I compiled a quick spreadsheet based off of Z31 parts sold in the past on EBay, and I'm at $1500 without even getting into some of the more obscure bits. The trip back took about 3 hours, but she ran like a champ, with the only stops being to change drivers and take breaks.

Some pictures of the car that night:
