Well there's a car like that near me (except its 88' and they want about $1200-1500 for it (needs some body work and tires). Do you know approximate mileage, interior shape (also leather or not), standard or auto?

Alright, well the value may change alittle depending on what type it is (2 door coupe, 2+2 coupe, or turbo).

Does the car have only two front seats or does it also have rear seats in it? Also, do you know if it's standard or automatic?

The first generation 300ZX's (Z31) are nice and I wouldn't mind owning one myself. Do they usually need a lot of work, or are they mostly taken car of pretty well?

As with most sports cars they were probably quite abused, and because of their age and rarity expensive to fix and hard to find parts for. If you have the budget for it, I'd say get one. Otherwise I'd find something cheaper to repair.
