Is This 280zx Beyond Saving? When Is A Car Worth Saving? Kevin Tetz Walks Us Around A Potential Project To Figure Out If It Is Worthy

I’ve bought two cars in my life that made me wonder if I should have. The first turned out epic, and as soon as I started mocking it up during the build, any doubts left my mind. It would turn out to be a REALLY smart buy. The second one will be awesome too, I hope, but was a deal that I couldn’t pass up and for a car I have wanted a long time.  But are there times when a car or truck just have too many strikes against them? Too many rust spots? Chassis damage? Or is just missing the stuff that is impossible to find? It’s way harder to build a car that nobody makes parts for!

Let’s see what Kevin Tetz says about this potential project, because this is the kind of walkaround everyone should do before buying a project vehicle.

Video Description:

I just watched a 1980 280ZX cross the block @mecum mecum_auctions for 231K!

Another 1981 for $150K… these cars are coming up in the market!!!

But, is this one too far gone? I tried not to be sucked in by the memories I have of these wonderful S130 cars, I had one many years ago… This one may be more than I bargained for… Would Vice Grip Garage rescue this car? Derek Bieri probably wouldn’t fit in it, but that’s besides the point.

All abandoned cars are worth at least TRYING to save, right?

Crusty 2.0: Less Patina, Better Performance, Still Crusty. Original Paint, Modern Comfort, And Performance!

When building cars, Greg Heinrich isn’t all about massive horsepower, or flashy paint. What matters to him more than anything, is how drivable the car is. Not how fast it can go around a corner – although that is a concern – but things like how well does it suck up a pothole? Can it
