    It looks great, is it registered in Canada or the US?

    US title.
    The car is located in Washington
    The original owner in California sold the car to a friend in Canada who owned the car for all of a few months. We purchased the car from the Canadian owner and sent it back to the US.

    Interesting way to mount the front license plate and it allows the beautiful grill to remain unfettered.

    I've often thought of making up a slip-on/clip-on front plate holder for our cars, using a pair of long L brackets that could clip into something mounted invisibly behind the grill. Could be handy for avoiding troubles with the law, and then removing for photos, shows etc.

    Front plate??? Who uses a front plate. Haven't had one on any of my cars for years and the one on the car in the photos would have been left in the gutter the first time I drove up my driveway.

    Most states still require a front plate. Seems a waste. Somewhat surprised that they haven't been legislated into extinction.

    it's required in WA - but we don'e have one (shifty eyes). The only comment we ever got on not having it was going through the border from Canada to WA. But we've been through the border several times and only gotten the one comment - of "where's your front plate" " we don't have one" "oh you know you're supposed to right?" "really?"

    Hum...

    When I was re-entering the states from Vancouver, the Customs folks were more interested in what I had on my rear plate than anything else.

    Going into Canada and returning to the US I got some raised eyebrows when asked what my reason for travel was and I replied "I'm out for a drive". That was all I was doing.

    Car has been sold

    I called and found out the car has been sold to dealer in Scottsdale. Now it probably could be bought this price plus $10k. Oh well. The search continues.

    They are attempting to sell it here.

    They claim it's one of 150. That's probably not correct. I hope they are simply misinformed.

    There were 667 black/black built, so I don't know what his one of 150 claim is, but he's been doing a solid trade in Z8's and a good job of underwriting the values of our cars.

    Agree, they have a good track record and I would not hesitate buying from them if they have the right car. Perhaps this is 150 made in 2002 or simply a misunderstanding.

    Since he is a very good dealer, (Havenhurstkid has both bought and sold through him so he has a 5 star rating) I emailed him to let him know there were 667 made in that combo just incase anyone wants to buy the car, then finds us, and sees it was one of 677, not 150.

    John, who owns the dealership, is very honest and accurately describes the condition of his cars. I bought my silver/red 01 Z8 from him and then sold it back to him earlier this year when I bought my stratus car. I also sold him my 2005 E55 in May. He loves Z8's and does very well with pristine, low mileage cars. I agree with Andrew that he helps keep the value of our cars up even in this economy.
