    Miami Nissan 300zx Adventure — This car was my first Nissan Sports car back in 1987 bought it off the dealer cash 0 miles. I have loved driving this ever since. It has amazing looks even now. It always ran smoothed and I love the feel of the clutch and how well it grips and engages through the gears. Many fond memories are in this car, many, Many good times as I drove it around Miami, from one adventure to another.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent car for its age and time. Perfect for show car project.

    Cons: it is an older car so it will need mods to be competitive with today's sports cars.

    Loved It — i loved it and wished i didnt have to get rid of it. it had some amazing power for being an 87. the previous owner didnt take good care of it so i had too. it was very fun to drive and had more power than i expected it was a turbo.

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

    Pros: the quickness and power

    Cons: the previous ownder

    Its Just Plain Sexy — its a very solidly built car and it rides very tight. its fast even though i have a clamped caliper at the moment. i cant wait to get everything done to it that i have imagined. there large range of options for custom parts and hardware.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fun to drive

    Cons: cant think of any

    Nissan 300 Zx Turbo — Awesome Car. Wasn't the greatest in the snow but other then that it was a great way to get around. Easily modified to be a street racer but I kept mine stock and loved to just cruise around in it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome quality and style

    Cons: none

    If You Have One, Enjoy It, If You Don't Consider Carefully Before Getting One — gas isn't cheap, particularly for the turbo, but it's a blast for weekend driving, always fun to toss around on the mountain passes... There are obviously more powerful and better handling cars, but this one is mine, and it fits me like a glove

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

    Pros: looks, handling and that nice kick in the rear when you hit the gas

    Cons: pain in the ass to work on and any parts are flow in from japan or out from kentucky

    '87 Z — This car has about 163 hp. hit powerband from 3000-5000 RPM. handles nicely. i absolutely love the look of this car!! I picked it up in april of 09 for $2K. Wound up sinking another $3K into for head work, gaskets, cooling system, and a few other small tweaks here and there. all in all i think it's worth every dime that I've spent.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: handling, speed, appearance, quality

    Cons: MPG

    Loyal To My Zs — I picked this one up in a friend of a friend type purchase. For the price I am quite content with the condition and performance of the Z. She is a 87 turbo GLL model with 209k miles on her, but after checkin her over I believe she still has allot more left in her. The turbo spools fast and strong, currently pushing about 8lbs of boost. Sadly however the clutch is starting to feel the 200+ thousand miles and is starting to slip in the upper RPMs. But after 22 years and 209k miles i really can't complain. The car is still suitable for daily driving and so is my primary mode of transportation. A few things were in need of attention when I first purchased her, but nothing catastrophic. Minor things such as power window switches that worked, but took some fenagleing to get them to work from time to time. The power window on the drivers side was also hand assisted, 22 year old stock head unit had a few bugs in it, and a shock mount needed to be replaced. The body is completely straight asside from two small rust spots on the corners of each tail light. The paint is of course faded from the years and the interior is in need of a shampooing, but the overall ergonomics are perfect for me. All in all given the age and mileage of the car I am extremely impressed, thus the reason I buy these cars time and time again. It is a inexpensive sports/touring car that is a blast to drive. Esspecially in the summer time with the T-tops off.

    Pros: great handling from the factory adjustable suspension, good acceleration, T-tops, CHEAP!!

    Cons: Faded paint, stained interior, clutch needs replacing.

    A Really Great Way To Own A True Sports Car For The Price Of A New Computer. — Great fun car that is super cheap to buy/own. Only problems are rust, mediocre acceleration and weight. Other than that it is an amazing car to use as a daily driver and is super fun to get sideways. For a car over 22 years old, it has very few problems and has great styling.

    Pros: Low cost, easy to maintain, easy to drive, reliable.

    Cons: Low horsepower, high weight, gas mileage
