IF YOU HAD TO PICK ANY Z CAR, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? LET'S LIMIT IT TO ANYTHING PRIOR TO 1990. (THIS INCLUDES THE 240, 260 AND 280)

Hmmmm...probably the original 240Z for nostaligia. Kinda weird since the car was released when I was born.

Hey, didn't select Nissan dealerships offer refurbished 240Zs for sale a number of years ago, right after they killed the 300Z? From what I can remember you got a factory warranty and a perfectly 'new' car to go with it....I think they were selling, for like, $15k?

Man, I'd love to have one of those.

I see 300ZX's on the road and I can't help but think that that design still looks as good, fresh and modern today as it did when it was first launched. That shape is classic. If only the interior were as strong. Anyway, that's where I put my money.

Prior to 1990 ???

Probably, 88 300ZX SE edition.

This is an easy one, 240z hands down.. it was the first z lightest and fastest Z (notice I said Z not zx) The only reason they made the engine bigger(260,280) was because of emmisions and the weight of the car grew. And for who ever posted about nissan selling the cars refurbished, I think they were more like 30k, I had a chance to look at one at brown nissan in fairafax Va. It had an upgraded carburator and a few other things, the only thing wrong with it was its ugly brown color. The best thing about the early z's was that they had that inline 6, nothing sounds better. The only thing wrong with the cars were the 2+2 editions,one word...ugly

i've seen a few 80-84's floating around between $1500 and 2k but they are gone like instantly. i just have to be a quckdraw with my checkbook i guess. i have yet to see a 240 for under $5k. granted they are partially restored. guess i'll just keep lookin.

Unfortunately, they were actually going for $25K, which is why many people didn't buy them. http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/frown.gif

Actually, if I remember correctly, they were produced ("restored" if you prefer) in limited number and they were all sold before they could even put them in the show rooms.

I'd probably buy an original Z. http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/smile.gif It's just perfect thats all I have to say. I remember I got to drive on, it was so cool! Everything was perfect, the engine, the drivetrain, everything it was great!!! Now I really want one!!

It's gotta be an '70 240Z... BTW a perfectly restored 70 Z will go as high as $35,000 at auctions... http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif

If I couldnt find a nicely restored classic, I'd buy a 88-89 Z31 turbo. Black with a 5spd. and leather seats. I have to say I think that interpritation of the Z31 chassis looks the best. Besides, those are rarest!!
Gettin cheap too http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif
