Even More Craigslist Egregiousness- The Project Z

I had a Tamiya version of this model, but it wasn't this big.

Once again, we have come across a Craigslist ad that stretches the credulity of the term project. This $1500 Datsun 240Z has been stripped of both its dignity, and its engine, which has gone the way of Elvis apparently. Better described as a collection of Z parts, the ad claims that the interior is in great shape for its age- and as proof he’s got it laid out over there next to the shed!
Calling this a project, especially when the motor is missing, is like calling the country’s economic condition a hiccup.  If you’ve got a roller that is missing some trim or a fender here or there, then this might be right up your ally, but otherwise, this is something you might just want to back slowly away from.

    With that extra front clip and the fact that I'm sure all the hardware has NOT been bag'd and tagged properly, I'd be willing to go all the way to $500. Unfortunatly due to the fact that he fails to provide a motor (not a common engine) and the amount of labour that this will need to look good to even get it to a decent car to own you could go grab this runner here.

    Yeah, the interwebs are just burning up with all the smart money guys looking to take advantage of this deal. I wish this fool the best of luck.

    Seems completely fair, he even went through the trouble of stripping it apart and removing the paint for resto.
    What could possibly go wrong?
