I saw that for sale, but could not do it. They only made a 100 supposedly and a NOS one beautiful, but ouchy. Did you really do it? If so very impressed.

Re: 300zx racecar

Re: insurance valuations

Classic cover/JRI insurance did not require a valuation until well in the six figures. For the camaro race car we used Mark Joblin for a valuation. Comprehensive and well priced. Insurance company accepted it without question.

Re: 300zx Accelerator cable
