FJ cruiser blue
The 240z has always been my dream car since I was younger. Since I got my license, Ive always been watching CL for a 240, 260 or 280 that moved. I see an ad for a beautiful blue 240z for 2200 dollars pop up on craigslist and immediately called the guy, after a few minutes on the phone I was on my way to check it out. This man (in his 70's) had two 240z's, one of which he had fully restored and autocrossed for years, and the one I now own was almost fully restored but had been sideswiped and parked for five months. Damage wasn't horrendous, maybe replace a fender, door and rocker panel and it would be looking brand new. I must have been there for a couple of hours talking about the 240's history, parts the come with the car and all of his awesome tips and advice on improving performance in these cars. That day was the first time I had ever sat in a z, the owner took me for a ride in his and I was sold. It might have been the way the car handled 35 mph corners at about 65 with ease, or the way the car yanked me back in my seat at half throttle, I don't know, but one way or another I was going to bring the 240z home. Didn't even try to offer less, well worth 2200 for the car, priceless advice and truck bed full of extra parts including matching paint and primer!
