    Default Bring A Trailer

    I am a huge follower of BAT and check it out every day.

    They have agreed to sell a car for me, which will come up this next week.

    My wife and I had some fun at our local airport over the weekend doing an informal photo shoot for the ad.

    The 1940's plane makes the 1970's car look modern LOL

    Had a 70.5 Cherry red Z years ago.
    We would tow our Hobie Cat 16 to the beach with it and had a blast.
    Fun car glws.
    I've got my eye on a 74 Z with a 280Z engine.
    Flogging a set of side drafts again is on my list.

    It's an auction, so the price is TBD.

    I have fully disclosed in the ad that this car has some body panel rust, and this will hold the price down.

    The market is blazing hot on these right now and top cars are bringing over $20K for the first time in history.

    I think the crazy increase in Porsche prices is filtering over to other markets.

    Did you time this to coincide with the current GRM issue?

    No, but the timing is good, huh?

    Took it to a Z show at Stadium Nissan on Sat and hauled a friends car as well.

    Lots of thumbs up from people on the freeway.

    Too freaking hot to drive from San Diego with no AC in the cars LOL

    Auction is live.

    As I suspected (intended), the plane is getting all of the attention LOL

    Strong bidding and entertaining comments.

    Often the comments have a negative bent to them but this seems to be mostly positive.

    I am actually going to make money by selling a car. Is that even legal? LOL

    Had a great experience with Bring A Trailer.

    Car sold for 40% over my reserve and I got to talk "Z's" with lots of cool people during the week long auction.

    Seller pays flat $250 fee, and buyer pays 5% of sales price.

    Car is being picked up tomorrow and being shipped to the Bay area.

    Hope to do it again sometime
