you should post some pics to get some more bites on this. it is sad about the "Z" mechanics and their diagnosing and repair of your car. i am willing to bet it is very simple. something you might even be able to correct yourself. are you interested in working on it on your own? i have had the very same kind of issue with some mechanics in the past, forcing me (and I'm glad for this) to start learning how to work on it my own. could be a course in direction you take if interested. if not, that's understandable. if you really want to part with it, try getting with a local Z car club near you. a chance of it going to a good home with a Z guy or girl is probably high.
you know, years ago when I had my 80 zx (Dianna) i remember taking her to get an oil change and they couldn't figure out how to open the hood.... at that point, i decided to start doing the oil changes myself. one thing led to another, and the next thing i new i was working on my own car in my garage and tools started piling up. i don't regret this. i dread taking my car to a mechanic, however there are some guys out there who do know what they are doing and are willing to properly fix your car.. finding them is the problem. but they are around. that being said, avoid the dearlerships... they don't care about our old azz cars.
i hope you can find this car a good home, or if you take the plunge and decide to keep it, even better.
Nos, primer paint, piller gauges, fart cans, funky spoilers, low riders, annoying drivers...
Oooh, I'm trembling with fear as the stop light is near, I sit in my Z in the presence of thee....
Whatever man. Leave that dumb crap to the Honda goons!
