Hands down most fun car

Vehicle: 1990 Nissan 300ZX GS 2dr Coupe

I've only had this car for about 4 months but this car handles and accelerates better than some V8 cars I've owned/driven. I bought it with it needing injectors. Since then, it is absolutely AWESOME! I have a '93 twin turbo Stealth R/T, & a '00 Mustang GT and even w/ the Z being a non-turbo, it'll whip BOTH their a$$es, feels like a more solid, quality built car & is a lot more fun to drive. Just beware of mashing the gas halfway into a corner- it likes to swap ends, & get "squirrely". It'll also turn the back tires into pollution pretty easily at stop lights. Even being 20 yrs old, the styling/design has held up really well. I was in love w/ these cars when i was in H.S. & still am.




This car rocks!

Found one with very low miles in pristine condition and just had to have it. Much faster and handles way better than the older ones by leaps and bounds! Do not buy it unless you know for a fact when the timing belt was replaced. The book say replace at 60K and they are serious about that. Cost on replacing the belt and water pumps is like 1200.00 so add that to the price of car and drive it to a Nissan dealer that day! It will break even if you are driving like grandma (and you won't, TRUST)! If it breaks, it will destroy the engine!! Even if it breaks while trying to start the engine. It is easy to get 300K+ out of one if you do this! If not, you will pay!

I have owned my 1990 300ZX since 1996 and I have the very highest possible praise for it. I still to this day enjoy driving it so very much. With the t-tops off and the sun shining what can I say? It just makes driving anywhere, vacation highway or intown city, a true joy. Since it is very reliable my cost of ownership has been and continues to be low. It's extremely well made with highest quality materials (shut the door and notice the sound it makes - s-o-l-i-d). Note the interior curve on the passenger side dash - still beautiful after all these years. A super car whose low price one can purchase it for according to BlueBook/Edmunds in no way, shape, or form matches its high quality.

This is the most responsive car ever and a real pleasure to drive. Maintenance increased right at 100,000 miles, but put some $ into the old girl, and she's running almost as good as new! I probably won't ever sell as long as I can keep her runnin'!

Z=all the girls stare and all guys want to race. NO trouble getting attention, the best part was i only paid 4k for the car. Unfortunately labor on the car was expensive.Frankly i don't care, i just couldn't afford it anymore with college and all, but I defintely DO NOT regret dumping the money into it, and would continue to dump the money if i had it into today. Other than a 1991 supra turbo (with the cat removed, and a custom exhaust all the way back) it is the fastest car i've driven(hands down faster than my friends new rsx type-s) Recommened for anyone that can afford the maintance
