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
