Sexiest Car Ever. — I loved this car. I have never sat in another car and felt the same way. Huge V6 with tons of power.

Pros

Sharp looking car

Cons

Needs more power and over-priced

The Z Car In The 90's Is Still The Best Looking Z... Imo — I know I wanted this car when it was unveiled in 1990. This was the sharpest looking car I've ever seen, besides the Corvette. Acceleration was not very strong from its 3 liter DOHC V6, but the steering and brakes are way better than the Mustang. The "Tee-Top" option was very cool in summer and fall seasons. This car SUCKS in the snow, I got stuck in only 1" of snow on flat surface!

Pros

looks breathtaking. sound gives anyone an orgasm.  

Cons

spend more time under than in it..

35

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)

Pros

attention grabber, durable, fast

Cons

the engine is packed in so no room for any mods

25

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, Nimble, Targa Tops :)

Cons

lack of airbags

25

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.

Pros

Fast and fun and sexy

Cons

horrible gas mileage, expensive and confusing to fix.

25

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.
