I was watching Pawn Stars not too long ago on the History Channel and was surprised to see a 280ZX being brought in for sale. It was a 1980 10th Anniversary Edition 280ZX, one of only 500 Red and Black ones that were made. The paint seemed to be in pretty rough condition since the owner had painted it himself and the motor had some issues.
What was funny was the owner initially wanted $28,000 for it saying it could be sold for $60,000 or more. I haven’t done a lot of pricing on these particular models but I doubt they go for that much unless they have been stored since the day the rolled off of the showroom floor.
They ended up not buying it but it was nice to see a 280ZX on the tube for the first time since who knows when, even if it wasn’t pristine, not many are.
