1985 Nissan 300ZXReview

Slick — Twenty-Two years old And the car has had one single issue with a stock component. Only replaced wipers, tires, and fluids.

Pros: Beautiful auto, awesome cruiser and reliable to boot.

Cons: A bit heavy, also an automatic.

Very Fun — Rebuilt too many mods to list, new built motor, trans, t-3/t-4 turbo, front mount intercooler, 18psi boost.

Pros: Fast, great looking for a classic '85 300ZX

Cons: its old 80's styleing

Epic — First car I ever bought. I loved everything about this car. Sleek, fast, beautiful. Very low maintenance, even granting the year. Anyone who has one of these loves these cars loves it. Commuted daily about 40 miles worry free. I wish I never sold it. I'll have another one some day.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: hate that I don't have one anymore

Lovely Car By darkmann

As long as one sticks to the maintenance schedule, this car can last a long time. If abused, maintenance cost can be quite high. It is a two seater with limited trunk space. It is easy to mod and t... Read More

First Glance, Whats That? Second, Third, Fourth..... Is This A 2015 Model? By kvanbibber33

From every single trim level there is a wow factor not available in the early 90's. My friend and Fairlady Z enthusiast told me "If a 300zx turbo and a space ship landed on your front lawn at the same... Read More

It's a fun car to drive and zip around in. Looks really nice too. The good is it is a sporty little car that still looks excellent. The lines on it are modern enough to still be in style. The in... Read More

Elder Z Does Not Disappoint. By Chris

I'd always wanted one of these cars. The twin turbo versions are still pretty expensive 20+ years later, but the naturally aspirated cars are not to be overlooked. They are typically less fussy when i... Read More
