2009 Nissan 370Z: It's No Honda Insight...

...and that's OK by me. After spending nearly the entire holiday weekend slugging around in our long-term Honda Insight, I was forced to trade cars on Sunday afternoon following the Chevrolet Volt drive at Dodger Stadium.

Engineering Editor Extraordinare Jay Kavanagh needed to get some seat time in the Insight to help him clarify his Volt experience before penning his First Drive impressions, and since Jay arrived at the stadium in the Nissan 370Z, we swapped cars in Parking Lot 1 before heading out of the ballpark.

I've never been a huge fan of the Z, but boy, after driving the Insight for four days, I welcomed every single horse in the coupe's V6 stable.
