The bulbs could be burned out, the fuse could be bad, the switch that turnes them on/off could be bad, or there could be a faulty wire somewhere in the circuit. This is all I can think of right away, I'd start by checking the fuse and replacing the bulbs, and if neither of those fix it, you may have to take it in to a mechanic to check the switch and circuit wiring unless you know a fair amount about electrical systems.

Why would the high beams not work on a 1987 Nissan 300zx?

Typically when a vehicles high beams fail to function, you will not see the high beam indicator illuminate on the dash either. When the combination switch is prompted by the user to activate the high beams it makes a ground connection on one of the relays terminals, closing the relay and the high beams turn on. The relay could potentially be bad, or the contact from the switch has been compromised by corrosion, or dirt. It is also possible that the contact point has bent far enough that it is unable to make contact with the relay from years of using the switch.
