I came across a 1984 300zx 50th anniv turbo automatic car for sale and am wondering what it is worth. The car is pretty clean with low miles, but hasn't been on the road for almost ten years, so it will need some work like tires, battery tune up.

The guy is asking $3,900 for it, good deal?

thanks for your opinions

If the PO is pretty & will sleep with you for 6 months it may be worth the price. The car itself is not worth much if it won't run & drive. Brake hydraulics, electrical problems, engine rebuild are all possibilities.

Too much.I've seen a near mint condition one with a 5 spd manual that could be driven across country any day . The price on it was $3000 . It is started every couple weeks and needs nothing mechanical done.

How much are you actually comfortable paying for the car?

Start at 1/2 to 3/4 of the price - in $100 bills and add just short of max price you'll pay.

Then walk away.

If no bites call again in a few days.

What's it worth...

A lot less than it will take to fix it up.

If you let the "other guy" fix it up, you have no quality control.

You say it has been off the road, but you haven't said: does it even start?

Take some pics and post them
