    Tt — spent more time fixing this Z than driving it! When she did drive, it was quite amazing however. I miss a boosted car, and this was by far the most money and time ive spent on a car. Although she had alot of problems, I cant wait to get another

    Sick — Great car! Very fun and FAST! Looks as if it was made in 00' or newer. Always turns heads. Always asked what kind of car this is. Stock turbos are great and responsive. Brakes could be better. T-top are awesome! Great car overall and is a blast to drive! Will beat g35, 350z, beamers, and more. Maintenance is not for the faint of heart. Parts are somewhat expensive but are reliable.

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

    Pros: Fast, fun, great DD, looks aweome!

    Cons: None

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: handling, power, stylish

    Pristine. — if you havent owned a 300zx, you have no idea what your missing. one of the most respected cars to this day, after its debut in the early 90's. considered the poor mans ferrari. will never ever find another car to top this.

    Best Car In The Z Series I Wold Say — FR set up makes for a fun car. the twin turbos make good top end power but kind of weak low end torque. a bit heavy of a car but it can be lightened if need be. t tops are a plus also

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

    Pros: 3.0l twin turbo

    Cons: heavy

    A Masterpiece, A Classic, A Must Have Even If It Only Sits In The Garage. — I love my car. Bottom line. I drive a red 2 door 1990 Nissan 300zx. It drives like a champ. The cost of upkeep and gas is a little steep, but the car is a thrill to drive. It's a manual with auto windows and a/c, the works, etc etc. Love it!

    Pros: All

    Entry Level Performance Motoring. —

    My entry into performance motoring. It was a 2 seater. Performance was not too bad but not great. 0-100km/h just under 6 seconds. Was unmodified (except exhaust). Good sounding car, not too bad looking although a little dated now. T-Tops were fantastic. Easy and quick to remove, didn't leak when on. Took up quite a bit of room in the boot when off though. Boot space was actually pretty good for this type of car - much much more useful than in my Supra. Brakes were good for a spirited drive on the open road, but not up to track work. After about 3 laps on a medium speed circuit they were cooked. V6 means fairly expensive to repair as there is two of most/many things. Also being a quite short nose means the engine bar is rather cramped. This makes work on it fairly expensive (or difficult/annoying if you are doing yourself). Has HICAS which seemed a little gimmicky to me. Not sure if mine wasn't working properly but just seems like another thing to go wrong and offered marginal benefit. The SWB was quite difficult to slide controllably as it tended to snap quite aggressively. Not sure if the 2+2 version shares this trait.

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

    Pros: T-Top.  V6 twin turbo performance

    Cons: Not much space, expensive parts and repairs

    It Was My 2nd Car And It Was Great Never Gave Me Issues — although it was naturally aspirated it had a powerful engine. I dynoed @ 235rwhp...if only i still had it. Engines are hard to work on but it was def a fun car to drive. lovely exhaust note and a real attention grabber everywhere i went.

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

    Pros: gorgeous to look at and drive

    Cons: not enough room to work on the engine.

    Gotta Love The Fairladys!! — Look at my pictures! So much to say in a small box. The Z32 is an extremely versatile machine. Built in Japan from 90' to 99' it was a showcase of superb Nissan engineering. A car that Nissan eventually lost money on due to the great amount of input it received. The result is a cheap sports car that with some love and a decent amount of wallet can be turned into an exotic killer.

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

    Pros: Solid sports car that is extremely durable and many ways to make good power numbers on a budget.

    Cons: Money
