Default 1st time Z buyer?

I get the impression that many 370z buyers are existing 350z owners or have owned many Z's of yesteryear.

How many of you are new 1st time Z owners?

I'm old enough to remember when the original 240z made its debut. Not old enough to have bought one new back in the day however. While I've always liked the Z, for one reason or another I've always chosen other cars over it. But there's something special about this Z34 that will finally make me a first time Z owner.

EDIT:
I guess there should be another option for owners of other Z models, who aren't really "Z collectors". But since I don't seem to be able to update the poll, put yourself in that "Z collector" category. What I was really trying to separate was old school Z owners (s30 - Z32) vs. new gen owners 350z (z33) vs. 1st time Z owners.

This will be my first Z, young though, but my father owned both a 280Z and a 300ZX. Both were sold before I was born though.

My first. My father in law has had many of them beginning with a 260Z so I have ridden in and driven most models. His 260 is still my favorite but my 370 is easily #2.

There needs to be another choice........I am sure that I am not the only person here that is in a group that has had another Z other than a 350 ...but is not a collector. I had a new 240Z.....and plan on getting a 370 soon.

I owned a 350z, so the 370z is a natural upgrade

Wow, I'm surprised at how many new Z owners, which includes myself. But I was expecting to a more of a loyal crowd. I guess who ever has owns the revious Z likes it so much that they're not ready to upgrade yet.

maybe we should have a sticky thread on what cars people owned before the Z. I find it surprising as well that the 370Z is alot of owners first Z. They have missed so much!
