Agile handling. Blistering acceleration. Pain in the ads to work on. Gremlins throughout electrical maze. A great car to flip. Would not bbuy another.

The Best Gt Sports Car At The Price Point In 84 At Price. —

I bought this car brand new and when I did I thought "I will never sell this car". I have taken care of it that way ever since. It has taken me 167k on the original motor which has never been rebuilt. The tranny has been rebuilt and most of the rubber stuff under the hood has been replaced along with the starter alternator, water pump(many), timing belts (many) and lots of tires. I have totally redone the suspension including a bigger sway bar on front and rear with KYBs, Eibach springs and just recently added a Cusco strut brace bar. Over the years the car has been a sunday driver longer then a daily driver, which it was only for the first 10 years of its life. Since then, only a sunday car and always garaged. All the rust that I got on it has been cut out (not much but they rust regardless). The stereo is completely swapped out...BTW, this is a non-turbo, I couldn't afford the insurance when I was 23 when bought the car. My leather is also nice, a few places needed fixing but the main faces of the leather are original. Overall if you take of this car people and show it to people they will look at you today and say (what is this thing). While a 370 is way faster and can out handle my old Z, the old girl still gets around and turns heads now that most of them are trashed and in the junk yard.

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

Pros: Soild Motor, Styling that held up, reliable if you keep up with it

Cons: Rust Monster if out in the rain, most examples out there now are junkers

Great Car. — My dad bought this car new for my mom. It had been stored for 10 years when I started driving it because my daughter needed a car for college and I gave her my sentra. We got a new battery and repaired a leak in the radiator and it runs great. It is all original in like new condition. These are incredible cars! Now my daughter is waiting for her turn at it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Old, but still hot!

Cons: the 2x2 has a tiny back seat

I Would Buy It All Over Again — car is in great shape, runs and drives tight, quick but still good mileage and fun to drive. Only thing i worry about is finding parts, accessorizes and chrome engine parts to doll her up and make it MY personal car

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

Pros: really classy look

Cons: they say the digital dash board is a nightmare

300zx Turbo With T-tops — This is a very nimble and fun car to drive. I only drive it on sunny days with the T-tops out. It is all original and I bought it from a family member who bought it new at 62 years old. Lots of looks from folks. Leather seats with the turbo stitching in them. The interior and exterior are all original and in great shape.

Pros: Just fun to dirve.

Cons: It is a small but fun car.

This Car Is A Fun Car, It Has Some Electrical Issues But If You Treat It Nice It Will Be A Great Car — I love the engine that was put in the car. The transmission is not the best and the cable controlled clutch is slow to react. I have a hydraulic clutch and it gives a faster response reaction time. The handling is pretty good if your in sport mode, but if I put it in full or neutral the car is harder to control at higher speed. The car has alot of grounding and electrical issues. The body style is not very upgradeable but it still has its perks. The leather seats like to split at the seams. This car is very fun despite all of the problems its can have.

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

Pros: This car is alot of fun and is very quick.

Cons: Dont buy a first year car because it has alot of electrical issues.

Would Have Been Great For The Swap — This was my junk Turbo 300zx. I bought it for 1,000 to use it as a swap for the engine and manual transmission. It was fun to drive, but glad I sold it. It was no showroom car at all.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Turbo, Manual

Cons: Junk body
