Loved This Car! — I bought this car when it was already ten years old. Still had original clutch and everything. In the winter, the doors would freeze, and once you got them open, you couldn't close them. Until the car warmed up enough, you'd have to listen to it continuously telling you that your door was ajar.

Pros: Fun to drive! Low maintenance.

Cons: Major rust issues.

Overall Good Car — The performance is good for what it is, takes the sharp corners super good, could have a stronger axel for brake stands. Love the sleek style, almost looks like a corvette. It gets 35 high way miles to the galon if your lucky. all in all a very fun little car. The only thing I would change is supercharge it or drop a 350 in it!

Pros: quick, handles nice and descent gas milage

Cons: needs a stronger rear axel!

My Baby — I love how easy it is to work on and the fact that this car was built to last. it may not be that fast and powerful to todays standards but it is extremely fun to drive. you will never get tired of driving it. the best part is that you are one with the car. plus your but is like five inches off the pavement.

Pros: easy to work on fun to drive

Cons: not easy to find parts for

Great Car — First car I owned. Fast and fun to drive but it was on its last legs in many regards when I got my hands on it. I was never sure how many miles it had on it because the odometer was screwed up. Rust built up on most of the lower body panels. Power steering didn't work. If this same exact car was released today, brand new, I would want one.

Pros: Fast and fun to drive, 2 seater, t-tops, interior outclasses most cars released today

Cons: Some major issues like rust and power steering

1984 Datsun 300zx Vg30det, But It's Automatic — Beside the automatic transmission, which has a mind of its own, this car was the best japanese sports car of its time and it still feels great to drive it. If it had a manual transmission, i wouldn't have anything bad to say about it except that in 1984 the Z31 had a oil cooled turbo and it's starting to show some signs of fatigue (at least it's T3).

Pros: Turbo = easy to  modify
great handling
confortable leather seat - great lateral support
good visibility

Cons: it has to be manual - forget the automatic transmission...
parts are getting expensive
not very good for winter

My Daughter, At A Very Young Age, Called It "the Black Car". The Name Stuck. — I like everything about it. The only thing I don't like is my wife annually asking me when we're going to sell it! Seriously, I have 700+ hours of labor of love in this car - even so far as three coats of POR15 on the under carriage. It's been a pleasure to own and drive. Today's cars are made so you can't even work under the hood - not so with the 84Z!

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

Pros: The engine sound is a beautiful sound indeed made possible by numerous mods I've made since 1991, the year I bought it: high spark ignition; high performance plug wires; K&N cone air filter; 240SX TB; ceramic coated headers, high flow CAT, high flow exhaust. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the handling - this Z takes corners with almost zero roll thanks to heavy duty sway bars on poly bushings, Bilstein shocks, and under hood sway bar.

Cons: None-it's an original 300ZX !!

1984 Nissan 300zx — GREAT CAR! I have a 1984 300zx and I am the original owner. I also have a 1990 300zx and a 2003 350z. I still love driving this car after 29 years. I still drive it just about everyday. I will truly miss the 84 more than the others when it is gone someday. It has been much more comfortable on long trips than the newer Z-Cars. These old 300zx cars are not as fast as the newer cars but are much comfortable to drive, they are quieter inside (less road noise) and a much smoother ride. Mine is a 2+2 and when I fold down the rear seats you can't believe how much room there is back there under the hatchback! The old Z-Cars are also real easy to work on if you like to maintain your cars! There are many places to pick up the parts for the old Z's too, both new and used! Fun Car!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The 50th anniversary year of Nissan / Datsun! This is a great all around car.

Cons: I have had the car for 29 years and don't find anything bad about it.
