I know about the rust spot (believe me my cousin's 2+2 had a couple of them especially on the hatch on te drivers side whre the tool kit is) on a z31 but im not to familiar with the AE what should i check...?

Re: 1984 z31 50th AE

yeah. double check the VINs on the car and be sure to check the model plate. The model plate will have all the information about how the car originally came, which transmission it had, etc. And don't buy the one on e-bay from "southard943". His auction is extremely shady...

Re: 1984 z31 50th AE

Rust can be an issue in the rear compartment, especially if the two rear side windows are leaking which is common. Check under the spare tire etc, in the rear of the car. Mechanically, there should be service records for the timing belt/waterpump/cam seals replacement (every 10 years or 60k), dont drive if not done. Regular oil changes = good turbo life, no oil changes or records, be careful.

Re: 1984 z31 50th AE

Can you go out and look at this car, and not just on ebay? if so check to see if had an engine fire because the injectors had a problem of leaking and catching the engine on fire. Also, it you have enough time and patience, take a look at the turbo. Check to see if it has massive play in the shaft. Also, I wouldn't buy a car that has been modified, or tricked out to look cool or go fast, because when most people do that, they tend to think it's fast and they rally the **** out of it and race people up and down state st. all night. You don't want a car that you might think was rallyd, that would just lead to problems.
