MAn I have the same probelm with my 240Z if yu have some penetrating Oil or 3-in 1 oil I suggest you try to put some of that on if that does not work i guess you could try to straighten your antennaI I supect it is bent. Just go pick up a universal antenna from pep boys or what ever is near and they have one that looks almost identical to what the 240 has I am not sure about 280Z.

There is a plastic worm gear that runs your power antenna this gear is notorious for breaking after time if you want you can just replace the mass and worm gear as long as the motor on the antenna still works...can find them pretty much at all stereo electronics store approx price 30 bucks
hope this helps
