if it's in great condition and such low miles, probably like $6-8,000. Or more if it's totally pristine.

What are your plans for the car? If you're going to drive it regularly, I'd look for something else. IMO: That sounds like a car for occasional use and car shows. 10k for a driver Z31 is a waste of money. Should you get broadsided, the insurance would write you a check for about $4k. If you're planning on cleaning it up and competing in car shows with it, then I'd guess the price is pretty good.

try to talk them down a bit from 10 grand....I got my shiro with 75k on it for 3500 and nothing big was wrong with it. like leaky weatherstripping or something (thatll cost 500 to replace easy). and the timing belt service will have to be done soon if it hasnt yet.
