Car description

Let me start by telling you everything this car needs so there are no surprises. Then I'll tell you why if you're looking for a 300ZX project, this might be the car you should pick.
Here's what it needs
It needs a windshield since I accidentally broke it while trying to re-glue the dash down. No big deal, a car almost always feels new with a nice new windshield and I was going to have the dash glued back down when that is done.
The car now has some 93K miles on it and as you probably know, that is nothing on these kinds of cars. However, it is showing signs of oil leaks on one of the turbos, maybe both. Probably just need new seals. I don't think anything else is leaking.
It might need a master cylinder since the fluid seems to be getting sucked into the engine or something. No idea, it just plain disappears.
The seats are leather and both seats should either be replaced or re-done. However, because of their component like style, you might be able to simply have them repaired. The passenger seat has a cut in the center bottom part. The drives side is fine other than the usual wearing at the hinged area where you sit and slide against the seat. It is inevitable since the car is so low.
It may or may not need shocks. I say may or may not because I've always liked the rock solid feel it has so am no longer sure what new was like.
It will need either to be repainted or probably it could be buffed out by professionals. I've not bothered since I figure I'll want to keep the car if I see it looking great again. There are the usual weird ding spots that any pro shop can suction out. It may only need buffing and a clear coat, I don't know. It looks great at 20 feet as they say.
It will need some trim pieces replaced since those all wear out on these cars and they look tons better with new trim.
The tires are 'ok' but should eventually be replaced. I have two sets of wheels. I was going to have one powered coated since changing the wheels can lead to engineering issues, unless, that's what you do.
It will need an injector. One of them is not firing right. I can hear all of them clicking but but one is not feeding fuel. I took the exhaust off and saw that the drivers side is much darker, more carbon. It's gotta be on that side. I was thinking of replacing them all but the car runs strong even with 5 cylinders so obviously, replacing the one bad one would do it.
Every year I'd have to buy a new battery if I forgot to disconnect it. There is something or other that is a very low draw killing the battery. It is probably the aftermarket mp3 radio, maybe the crazy over the top alarm that lets people know when they are standing too darn close. I liked that. I always got a smile when people would lean in to look and the alarm would warn them.
I built a custom box for an amp and removed the spare emergency tire to house a big bass speaker. Who doesn't want more bass?
If you don't like it, the original in black is easily found on ebay for very little.
Ok so, we're talking maybe $3-$4K of fixing? More if you want all kinds of premium parts of course.
Here is why this is a great project car for someone
This is the 93 TT. This isn't the grandpa 2+2, didn't get any weird body stuff installed on it, never got driven into the ground. I did some mild rally racing with it for a couple of seasons and the only wear and tear was brake pads. the 93 is the sought after year because they go it right. The earlier versions had some problems and never achieved what the 93 did. The later models started being de-tuned I guess you'd call it. The 93 was the year they got it absolutely right.
I installed high performance Stillen (Stage III) exhaust, single cone intake and a GDM ECU. According to Stillen is it now around the 400HP mark and the difference was instantly noticeable.
I installed a short throw shifter which I really love. It not only makes shifting faster but it seems to connect much better.
I installed all new bushings in the rear but haven't gotten around to a few front parts but will include what ever I didn't install.
I babied this car since getting it used from a company that had leased it. It saw one winter which didn't leave any signs of rust or anything.
The paint and seats got messed up because I had too many cars and ended up parking this one outside when I would be working on other projects. I really enjoyed this car and was planning on fixing all of the above but I simply have no time anymore. As much as I hate to, it's time to let her go.
You will have to either pick it up or have some shipping company come get it as I will not handle any shipping and this way, you can know exactly what your cost would be. The car is sitting in the 86303 zip code.
The car is amazing to drive. These cars are low, they stick to the ground and if you've never experienced this kind of vehicle, the one tip I can give you is to strap yourself tight into the seat using after market straps. When you go into the corners, you have to let the car find it's limit, not yours.
What I mean is that it holds the ground so well that you will limit it's capabilities if you succumb to what you think is the max cornering and you will not achieve anywhere near what the car is able to do. That's why rally racing is great to learn and test your skills. I was an associate member of the Porsche club so as you can imagine my coming in with good times didn't impress the Porsche people LOL.
If you get the chance, I've had this car past the 165mph speed marker on the speedo at the track. Gets to 120 very quickly, 140 not long after, anything after than is hard to explain to anyone who's never been beyond those speeds. Of course, do this only if you've replaced the tires and anything else to do with safety.
Overall this is a great car and will be an outstanding addition to someone who can take care of the problems and get it back to speed. Pun, intended.
Ask what ever you need. I'll add more pictures soon.
