I am the original owner of this 280Z. It was never in an accident, nor was it driven much in snowy conditions. In 1995 i had it professionally restored and the color changed from powder blue to yellow. The car was completely disassembled, sandblasted primed and repainted. the paint job is showroom quality. A top overhaul was also done at that time. I paid $25,000 for this work and have a photo album showing everything done Since the restoration it has mostly been in storage. It runs well and is very near showroom quality. the only serious flaw is the dash. It has a crack. It is in a place that allows a number of solutions. The car is a stock Z except for the radio, radio antenna, wheels (later Z), paint color, and exterior mirrors. It is a very nice Z.
