I Absolutely Love It — I love this car. It looks awesome it drives fantastic it takes alot of money but at the end she is worth every penny. She can be a pain to work on maintanence wise. But she is quite a majestic creature In my opinion.

Most Unreliable And Expensive To Run Dream Machine. — the 500 yards it drives before brake down is all worth the work and money you sacrifice for last 3 months... yes i spend more time under it than in it,, and there is more cars out there more faster and lighter agile and what not,, bat boy the smile this car can put on your face is something you will never forget,, before you say anything i had a r33 skyline and a evo 10.. also had a lancer vrx 2010 and still have a toyota prado.. so you know what i meant.. i hate subaru wrx,,, not what i am used to,,, it under steer going in to a corner then over steer coming out,, if i try to counter to correct it completely do a 360 without any warning,,,(yes i crashed my friends brand new wrx)

horrible gas mileage, expensive and confusing to fix.

An Awsome Car With The Fuel Mileage Of A Plane. — Its a great car for someone who can afford the premium gas and the cost of repairs / maintenance. Its very fast 0-100 in 5.5 seconds. Its alot of fun but it comes at a big cost. Just the rubber on the car is $1,600. If you blow a turbo its gunna cost you $7,000. $14,000 for the twin turbo. Mines a twin-turbo so im a little carefull.

Lack of mechanical skills and lack of money.

It's The Best, More Or Less. — Performance - braking and suspension are that of a TT, which is incredible for a stock car, especially for the early 90s. With race pads and coilovers, i'd say it's track ready! As for acceleration/speed, the NA is nice, but the TT is where the real power and its potential are. I plan on a TT swap. Build quality - as long as they're maintained properly with the proper Nissan (or reliable performance aftermarket) parts, they're solid. If NOT, then not so much. Treat her right and she'll return the favor. Don't cheap out. You can buy the car for cheap, but maintaining the car is far from it. "Cheap, Fast, Reliable - You can only pick two." Appearance, BEAUTIFUL! Would be that much better with a '99 model front end, taillights, and a 90-93 TT spoiler. Fun factor - Definitely a fun car to drive. Hard to work on, but worth it when you're done.

It Is A Fun Car To Drive Around! — I liked the power and the overall handling is great. The car doesn't sway, dip or anything strange in the corners. I had the suspsension replaced wehn I bought it, the car drives like new. The interior is immaculate, and I replaced the rear wing because it was falling apart. This is pretty common with these vehicles. The car has not been in an accident or had any body work other than stuff I replaced to bring it back to show room condition.

Naturally Aspirated V-6 That Makes You Smile — My first car. I found this in search of a manual, rear-wheel drive V-6 beauty. Quick for what it was, with acceleration at a mild 6.5 seconds for 0-60mph. Motor screams all the way to 7000rpms, along with the passengers. Not awe inspiring in performance, leaving a lot to be desired compared to the Twin Turbo variant, yet it is definitely comparable to other performance cars. Leather interior and power everything (except seats) makes it a very luxurious car as well. Same timeless design that made it to the top of both the top 100 coolest cars, and the top 25 most beautiful car.

Styling - Way cooler than the 350.

Cons

Turbo has questionable reliability

Nissan 300zx Twin Turbo — Good Acceleration. Excellent Appearance. Rarity. No major squeaks/rattles. Solidly built car. Def. a car that I'd buy again someday. It does require more maintenace than something like a Honda S2000 or Toyota MR2 (non-turbo) but it can be just as much fun as either. The car looks great with very modest customization. I suggest pearl white with T-Tops and leather interior.

All Around Awesome Car — I had this car for about a year back when i was a senior in high school. i bought it with the intention of modifying it. I had no idea it would lead to a RB25 (single turbo skyline motor) swap. I put everything I had into this car and it was amazing. unfortunately after the swap it was not a daily driver and i didnt have enough for a second car. overall I would strongly recommend this car to anyone, especially when its powered by a RB motor ;)

The looks.

Cons

Engine bay work.

A Must Have Classic. — I love the looks, it is so exotic. The car turns many heads on it's styling. The performance really needs some work, it's kinda why they made a twin turbo. The car's 4000 pound weight is too heavy for it's 3 liter V6. At least it makes about 220 horse power. Any type of engine work on the car is tough since the engine bay is a tight fit for all of it's mechanics. I had to replace the alternator and it was a 4 hour job.

Pros

The power, turbo spool, BOV's, freeway races were always a win! Cept one hardcore Saleen

Cons

Gas Mileage, Interior seemed like an afterthought though everything was easily accessible.

300zx Happiness — Mine was a bit used, defiantly needed some work. However had a few things done to it already in a area where I wanted it done. It had a performance tune and a few or minor stuff bringing the stock horsepower from 300 to about 450. The car was a blast, gas mileage, well it had 450hp. So not that great. Especially since I couldn't stay off it. Power is a drug.
