    Wedding Gift= 1987 300ZX

    So my Boss gave me his fathers 1987 300ZX as a wedding gift. he knows nothing about cars and didnt really know what to do with it. At first i figure its a cop-out and I am gonna get this piece of shit that i now have to deal with but i saw it for the first time yesterday. 100k miles, california car, no rust, 5Spd, T-tops, leather interior, BBS Wheels, non-turbo (can't win em all). This car is absolutely perfect.



    I dont know much about Nissans, I've always been a mitsu guy, but people are telling me this car is worth $3000-$4500 in this good condition. I am trying to decide if i want to sell it of keep it. Any input???

    Keep her! Z31's are one the most looked over Z cars and they can be made to look really nice... you already have nice wheels on her... just needs a drop!

    I know it seems rude, but we were originally going to buy this car from the guy who gave it to us. He was aware we would probably drive it for a while then sell it, (we are saving to buy a house) so I wont feel so bad if I do sell it. I had no idea it was this nice tho so we might keep it... we'll see...

    but still its a wedding gift. I would sell the car if someone gave me a car for no reason but i wouldnt if he intentionally gave me as a gift... For me its disrespectful. Then again, its your call.... just my way of seeing things. No hard feelings thou...
