Old Z — Its an old car, you cant expect it to keep up with every new sports car. But with that being said they offer an amazing piece of history at a descent price. Tons of fun to drive, not real high on the cost of ownership. The L-28 engines will run forever if well taken care of. Get one if you can. I highly recommend it

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

Pros: Fast, fun, sexy car

Cons: Old and needs love most of the time

My New 1975 Datsun 280z — Just bought this car on 10 June. It made it all the way to Frontenac from Herrington so thats a plus so far! It needs some work. 1. Needs new brake pads and probably rotors too. 2. Passenger headlight bracket broken 3. Need a new gas tank and fule lines to be safe 4. A little body work 5. Install new exhaust 6. The clutch just went out as I was arriving in Frontenac so that too. 7. Needs three new tires. 8. In bad need of a tune up, new plugs wires, filters etc. 9. Thats all I can think of for now.... I will try to update this as I repair the car and upload new pictures.

Pros: It starts right up and body is fairly solid.

Cons: Don't really know yet.

Classy Sports Car — This was the only 2-seater I ever owned. The dashboard reminded me of a jet. It had 6 cylinders, so it went very fast with little pressure on the gas peddle because it was light and low to the ground. it handled great!

Pros: Fast
Great handlikng

Cons: No trunk
