Under normal circumstances, I’d say that the 2+2 extended roofline ruins the classic looks of Nissan’s classic S30 generation Z-car…but today is no normal day. This gold/brown 280Z has those little back seats and the extended roof shape and doesn’t look bad at all in the photos…but the most shocking part is that asking price compared to the condition. By the time you read this, it is probably already gone. Find this 1976 Datsun 280Z offered for $8000 in San Jose, CA via craigslist.
Tipper James sent in this next car with the subject; Please be real. I’ve have to agree that this car seems too good to be true…because a 1974 model year Datsun 260Z (that was the only year they were sold in the USA) offered for $10k, even if it is the less desirable 2+2 version with the later 1974.5 big bumpers, is a good deal. I guess it is a good thing for the brand (and maybe car preservation…but that is debatable) that Datsun’s Z is finally getting the price appreciation it didn’t see for decades…but today’s example is priced from a decade ago. Find this 1974 Datsun 260Z 2+2 offered for $10,800 in Brookhaven, NY via craigslist.
When tipper Cory sent us an email with the subject line; rare G-body- 86 grand prix with funky rear window glass, I instantly knew it was one of those sweet Poncho 2+2 Aerocoupes and there was no way I wasn’t gonna feature it. But the best part is that the car is offered for a reasonable sum of money and looks great in black (this is a repaint from the original silver-black two-tone from the factory). Get one of the 1118 Grand Prix 2+2’s built to homologate an aero nose, bubble glass, and fiberglass trunk lid for NASCAR competition. Find this 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 offered for $7,300 in Hellertown, PA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
This next car had me confused for a few minutes. The seller lists it as a Pontiac 2+2…and there was a model of Poncho called the 2+2 that was a full sized Catalina based big brother to the GTO…but this mid eighties thing has some interesting NASCAR aero looks…which reminded me of a car that we had called the Aerocoupe in the past…but Pontiac didn’t use the Aerocoupe name (that was used on the Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS version) on their version of the custom aero nose, bubble glass back, and fiberglass trucklid with spoiler…they inexplicably called it the Grand Prix 2+2. Find this 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 offered for $14,000 in Dayton, OH via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
The 1974 Datsun 260Z was an evolution of the original 240Z that was first released in 1970 but it was only a one year affair before it was replaced by the 280Z in 1975. The difference between a 240Z and a 260Z is hard to see from the outside…unless you find a 260Z 2+2, which […]
Most of the best deals on cars for sale around the web come from private sellers, but occasionally a car ends up at a small dealer or private consignment shop that is still desirable despite the undesirable price markup. But, everybody’s gotta eat, right? Find this 1975 Mercedes-Benz 280SL offered here on eBay for $13,900 […]

The MGB GT was a 2+2 fastback version of MG’s entertaining 2-seat MGB roadster, and with today’s classic car market they offer a decent package for a low entry price. This next one has had over $12k in repairs/restoration in the past 4,000 miles… and remember, there is no money better spent on a car […]
Update March 4, 2016: The Citroen CX is an oddball French sedan/fastback (don’t call it a hatchback because it has its own trunk in the back) “executive car” that combined a complex hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension with 4-cylinder powerplants to replace the venerable ID/DS in Citroen’s lineup. This particular car has been for sale for at […]
The Chevrolet Monza was released in the 1975 model year as GM’s biggest subcompact offering on the H-platform shared with the Vega/Astra/Sunbird/Skyhawk/Starfire. It was GM’s answer to new sporty-ish compact offerings from Ford like the Mustang II, Capri and Dodge’s Galant based Colt. The Monza was actually quite a strong seller, with almost 750,000 examples […]
