Ageless Coupe Styling Lots Of Fun Without Today's Horsepower — I bought this out of an old woman's garage at the right price. Even though it was an automatic, the turbo spooled up and put you back in the seat. It has been a trusty date car over the years. I have owned it for 12 years and only have upgrade items as maintenance cost.

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

Pros: Excellent car from the 80s. Fast as a skinned cat when the turbo kicks in! Replaced all bushings and handles better than new with poly bushings. Minimal maintenance cost with this car. Owned 10 years without a breakdown.

Cons: Mine is an automatic...

It Runs While New Cars Do Not. — I bought it as a weding present for my wife, still have the same car and same wife. Both look great after 27 years! The cockpit electronics have given me fits over the years. I need to rebuild the dash and replace the compass, G-meter, and rebuild the original radio. It has been replaced 3 times and rebuilt 3 times. I currenlty have an aftermarket one in the car but want to put it back to stock. - I need to do the heater rehab, sounds like a big job to me. Wish me luck!

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

Pros: It still runs and looks like no other car on the road today.

Cons: 1985 Electronics - TYO at night! Needs paint

Wouldn T Own One Again,even If It Was Given To Me. — Where do I start? I bought this car with 20k mls on the clock,everything was luxurious and mine was the 2 seater,manual tranny with t tops and everything digital and all kinds of gauges...but was this a head ache, this car is tje reason I walked away from all Nissan,after I had been a loyal Nissan customer for 7 years,turbo went bad,fuel injectors went bad,Nissan sent out a re call to fix them,power windows went bad at 30k mls,a friend liked the car and he begged me to sell it to him,I explaimed to him that the car spent more time at the dealer than on the highway,he insisted he wanted it that he would fix it,I sold it to him,LOL,he ended up losing the car,and we lost our friendship,in retrospect looking back,I wouldn t buy it,it looked awesome and when it worked fine it was a fine running car,but it was expensibe to own,this was a lemon,but there was no lemon law at the time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looked good.

Cons: Expensive to own and upkeep.

Great Sport Car — Z31 300ZX are a classic sport car. turbo or non-turbo gets great performance with 5-speed standard transmission. You can get a Z31 cheap and restore it. These sport cars are fun to drive and come with T-Roofs. Highly recommended

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: 25 year old car
