    All Zs are worth saving. I think the real question is, "Do I have the time and money to save it."

    From those 3 shots it does look pretty damn rusty but I've seen worse cars come back fully restored.

    Whoa... that's alotta rust. Is the chassis just as rusty? I got rid of an excellent, running 85 Celica GTS, with less rust than that, because the chassis needed rust work.

    Good Luck, and congrats on saving another JNC. Also, love the ATS gold rims. :wink: :tu:

    Thats a lot rustier than the ones I see in wrecking yards in Australia ! However who am I to comment, Im restoring something just as bad, it can be done just takes more time

    Are new panels still available for these cars ? I seem to recall something from a few years back that Nissan USA were selling refurbed 240/260z's. Sorry if Im wrong Im Datsun inept :lol:
