    88 300zx Turbo Vroom, Vroom — Nice car with lots of balls. Low to the ground. Great cornering abilities. Unfortunately parts whether OEM or aftermarket are hard to find for these cars. Looking to start replacing some parts on the car to keep it looking nice.

    Pros: Nice lines. Turbo adds low end grunt.

    Cons: Parts are hard to find, OEM and aftermarket.

    Classic T-top 300zx — This vehicle is a classic Nissan 300ZX sports car. The power and performance speaks for itself. The T-top panels are moveable and fuctions properly without any leaks. Tires are geat and runs really well for a 25yr. old car! Currently being used as a spare care or emergency vehicle. The vehicle is extremely reliable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent sports car style.

    Cons: Older model. The parts are difficult to replace.

    Awesome — There is not one thing I dislike about this car. I have enjoyed 300's since I was young. I hate to part with it, but it's time to move on to the next stage in car ownership. I will miss her greatly.

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

    Pros: Very classic car. Holds value easily

    Cons: nothing negative

    Fun And Affordable. — Love the handling and quickness of the car. For being 24 years old it still gets up and goes really well. The cceleration braking and handling are all very good, thanks to its light weight and relatively-short wheel-base. The only thing I've needed to replace was the slave cylendar.. no big deal. The interior and exterior are both in great shape-- small cracks in the leather on the drivers side door due to the sun, but small and hard to notice. The shape/body style of the car isn't my favorite, but it still looks pretty slicks, especially with the pearly white paint job it's got. It's actually a very reasonable cost of ownership considering it's a sports car; I get 22-27 mpg depending on where I'm driving, and if i can keep my right foot off the floor =) and yes, this car is very fun to drive, it handles well and gets up and goes.. I passed a Porsche today like it was standing still.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent handling, and surprisingly quick. Plus I love the T-Tops... and so do the ladies.

    Cons: Could get a guy in some trouble with the boys in blue.

    Everyone Has To Own At Least One Z Car In Their Life. — classic Z cars are hard to find now adays. beautiful car. only issues with them are rust spots appear in the back of the wheel wells and trans mounts go a lot. other than that, its a piece of history.

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

    Pros: rare, get looks everywhere.

    Cons: parts can be expensive.

    300zxt — Lets see. The fact that it is OBD 1 is both a good thing and a bad thing. One i can tune it to pass emissions but on the other hand i dont have the capabilities of diagnostics like an obdII car. Lets just say the GT35R gets the job done.

    Pros: its turbo

    Cons: rear end squat

    Z31 — Love z31's. They are a great car, one of the best z cars ever made my nissan. My z31 has a RB20det swap, so it is more less of a 200zr, but origiannly being Natuarly aspirated, boost is a whole new nature, and the extra horspepower is nice too. I would recommend one of these cars to anyone who is a nissan, datsun enthusiast.

    Pros: 2 seater, t tops, sporty, turbo

    Cons: none
