Plenty of car history.The following may tell you a bit about my age
regarding our Z cars:
Bought new ,1970 240Z(Datsun)that year
Bought new,2003 350Z in 2002. Still have.95k on the clock.

Some similarities on both these cars:
Cheap materials used inside.You think the 350z had inferior parts.
The 240z was just awful.Plastic,cheap vinyl seats.Pieces cracked.
Same goes for the marketing.The plan was to offer a car at much lower price than
the competition. In 1970,my 240z cost 3,500 bucks.Alfa,Jaguar,BMW,Porsche MUCH higher.In 2003,my 350Z cost right at 30 grand.Same competition plan.I still have a photo
of a sign on the dealership's wall when I picked up my 350.
Said: PLACES TO GO.THINGS TO DO.PORSCHES TO PASS.

Bit more competition out there now. I like my 370Z. However,as a bang for the buck rear
drive car with parts at reasonable prices,the 350Z sure is a winner.
Ask any ricer.
I would agree as well with other posts here. One of the most important things here is Z history and heritage. Fortunately recently Nissan announced said that Z history is not going any where and they will continue to build the Z cars but we will have to see again what Nissan will have to unveil in the near future?? I always liked the 370Z model and it is a vast improvement to the 350Z. Parts are more expensive and it is more expensive to modify the 370Z as well. The 350Z can be more budget friendly on the wallet to modify than the 370Z. Since Nissan continued to build the 370Z model is a good thing for actual Z enthusiasts. In the past I had a 78 Datsun 280Z I sure miss that car people say it is the “Grandfather of the Z cars” I wish I never sold it.
