Pros

The Z32 300ZX is one of the most timeless designs you will find.  When updated tastefully you cannot tell these cars are 25 years old.

Cons

This is not a car to buy if you aren't willing to spend money to keep it running.  They require a lot of TLC but it's well worth it.

1996 300zx 2+2 Still Sexy After All These Years — This is the second Z32 2+2 that I've owned and I plan to own many more. I love driving this car and it still turns heads. I love unique cars and it's a rare occasion when I see another one of these on the road.

Fun Car To Drive — This car is a blast to drive. Turns heads everywhere. Picks up great especially after 4000rpm. T - tops are amazing. I don't really care about gas milage but, it seems to be pretty good. Brakes and turning takes some getting used to (Really stiff)

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

Great Sports Cars, You Want Be Disappointed. — Great driving car. It corners like a champ. Smooth shifting with no lag. It has good power, but of course it could use a little more. However, the quality cannot be touched. This care is tight. I also have an 82 vette I have restored. Love them both, but they are different children.

The best sports car I have ever owned and I've owned a few.

Cons

There were no reasons to avoid this car.

My Favorite Car — This is the best car I have ever owned (all 3 times). Handling, room, looks, fuel economy, performance, styling inside and out, options, everything I can think of. This car was built for me and me for it. I wish I could still buy it brand new today.

Nissan 300zx — Since it's not a Turbo it isn't terribly fast but that wasn't what the car was born for. It was made for the corners. Handling and breaking are amazing, through the low gears the car is fantastic. The exterior is amazing on the car. Just painted it looks great. Cost of ownership is high and the build quality isn't a selling factor. All in all the car is a 5 star for fun factor

For An Na Engine, It's Not Too Bad. — Mine is broken now. Not broken down, it still runs, but a little broken. When it wasn't, it was a fun car to drive. It's low to the ground so corners are fun to take fast. And of course, it's always fun to throw the tail sideways.

Rare V6 Japanese Sports Car — My car is 1 of 700 made in that same year and trim. Its a great car and even though it has almost 150,000 miles on it, it always starts up and runs strong with plently of power
