'87 Z — This car has about 163 hp. hit powerband from 3000-5000 RPM. handles nicely. i absolutely love the look of this car!! I picked it up in april of 09 for $2K. Wound up sinking another $3K into for head work, gaskets, cooling system, and a few other small tweaks here and there. all in all i think it's worth every dime that I've spent.

Awsome Style And Power — performance was great with the 3L V6 turbo my best 1/4 mile time in stock form was 15.6 sec which isnt too bad considering how heavy it was it also used to drift quite nicely also great car overall

Not Quite — 87 was the last year before they got round, mine handled great, looked good but was just plain ole' tired. Sank too much money into it.

A Really Great Way To Own A True Sports Car For The Price Of A New Computer. — Great fun car that is super cheap to buy/own. Only problems are rust, mediocre acceleration and weight. Other than that it is an amazing car to use as a daily driver and is super fun to get sideways. For a car over 22 years old, it has very few problems and has great styling.

Pros

looks, handling and that nice kick in the rear when you hit the gas

Cons

pain in the ass to work on and any parts are flow in from japan or out from kentucky

If You Have One, Enjoy It, If You Don't Consider Carefully Before Getting One — gas isn't cheap, particularly for the turbo, but it's a blast for weekend driving, always fun to toss around on the mountain passes... There are obviously more powerful and better handling cars, but this one is mine, and it fits me like a glove

Loved It — i loved it and wished i didnt have to get rid of it. it had some amazing power for being an 87. the previous owner didnt take good care of it so i had too. it was very fun to drive and had more power than i expected it was a turbo.

A Classic! — Random test drive of a former salesman's personal car. It was old as I am, we had a connection.

My 300zx — i love my car in everyway. only thing i want to do to it is twin turbos and bigger brakes. runs great and has real low miles. gets up nice and quick and handles great. love the system i put in it as well, most people cant listen to it as loud as i can.

Nissan 300 Zx Turbo — Awesome Car. Wasn't the greatest in the snow but other then that it was a great way to get around. Easily modified to be a street racer but I kept mine stock and loved to just cruise around in it.

Its Just Plain Sexy — its a very solidly built car and it rides very tight. its fast even though i have a clamped caliper at the moment. i cant wait to get everything done to it that i have imagined. there large range of options for custom parts and hardware.
