Pros

The cars name is awesome

Cons

cost of parts

Twin Turbo — Its acceleration is great it is everything I hoped it would be handles great too, smooth at high speeds. It doesnt seem to have any issues other than normal maintenance. In my personal opinion it looks better than the 350 and the 370. It is a mid-range as far as cost of ownership i would say. I love to drive this car.

Pros

Everything. Mainly the fact that I basically built it with my own hands.

Cons

The price of parts.

1991 Nissan 300zx — Amazing acceleration, when the turbo's kick in you will need a come-a-long to pull yourself from out of the seat. It is exceptionally fun to drive. This car is a head turner and when built correctly will dominate any car on the road.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Amazing — the Fairlady Z is a great car especially if you want a fast, quick, and turbocharged car for a reasonable price. the main thing i like about this car is how its made for the driver. just from the dash and gauge cluster alone nothing in this car is made to make the passengers ride better, the only thing the passenger can access is the radio. another great thing is this car can slice through corners like a hot knife through butter. i can garuntee many people look over this car because of the skylines and supras, but they problem with that is people try to sell supras for waaayy to much and skylines are illegal according to the DOT. Another car people will go to before the Z is the Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 all because its AWD, AWS, and V6TT but im hear to tellyou its a fat cow and the performance and power is terrible and not worth it. Now the Z you get a TT V6 positioned to give it a FR MR feel as Nissan puts it, plus with how low and wide the stance of the car is it makes it perfect for those curvy back road cruises. plus the Targa Tops are great for nice sunny days. ill end finally on Maintance, for how many miles on this cars body (205,000 to be exact) i've had to do very little such as just replace the brake pads. the engine compartment though is a different story it is very very tight in there which makes working on it a bit of a pain in the ass, but if you dont do anything stupid you will rarely have to visit under the hood. plus modifications are very simple for this car, even an engine swap for example, i plan on doing a RB26DETT swap (when i procure a beater during the project, and 15 grand or close), now this project is actually relatively easy because the engine bolts right up to the tranny and you have to do few things to the engine compartment to make the engine fit in nice and smoothly. Therefor if you want a fast car, for a reasonable price, i would definetly gor for the 300ZX Twin Turbo model.

To expensive to keep running

Worth Every Penny — Decent speed for a 3600 lb car. Good braking. Exotic looks. Expensive maintenance. A joy to drive! My girl sure does look good in it!Gas mileage sucks for a small V6 also. Gets tons of looks while driving around town.

Fun To Drive If You Have The Money — Performance The power of acceleration is amazing even before spool up. Appearance - Of the interior and exterior styling is amazing, Nissan really took their time in making this car. The driver seat to the shifter, the whole car just feels right

Great Daily Driver Car — acceleration-great at start brake- good enough but not anything special handling-great a slight under steer but great control changed the clutch and r12 conversion for A/C Interior- for being a 91 it is pretty good maintenance has been okay but no one really wants to work on such an old car gas milage is alright i fill up every other week but gets pricey when it olnly take 91-93 octane overall this is a great car to drive i love pulling up letting people's jaw drop when they see it and great for drifting

Pros

Fast, fun, and unique. You do not see many on the road which gives it some rarity. Has power windows, cruise control, and and digital auto climate control on most models. Also has T-tops for convertible like driving while looking like a hardtop with the tops on. Also runs DOHC V6 with Coil on plug ignition.

Cons

Parts can be hard to find and fairly expensive. Almost impossible to work on yourself without a heavy amount of automotive knowledge.

Hard To Find And Fun To Drive. — A fun car to drive on a daily basis. The engine is built solid and you will get about 250k miles without a rebuild being required. It handles very well in corners and with the quick ratio gearing is great for auto-cross racing. The car is built as a luxury performance car so its weight is a little high. This tends to degrade its straight line acceleration but it remains fairly quick. The N/A model is the best model for daily driving.

Worth It — 1991 300zx- expensive to maintain, hard to work on, fun to drive. The twin turbo version is the only way to go, it handles great has great power, acceleration and top end. Only downfall is the weak synchros and cost of maintainence.

It's About Damn Time I Bought One — well, The good = 300hp twin turbo 2 seat rocket. The bad = no tilt wheel. This car was used, and needs some tlc. It can easily be brought back stock condition and I have been ordering parts since the day i bought it.
