Hey guys, Just a random question that I thought would make for a good friendly topic. Which do you think would personally age better (looks wise) a 350 or 370z?

Hey guys,

Just a random question that I thought would make for a good friendly topic.

Which do you think would personally age better (looks wise) a 350 or 370z?

When the 300zx's came out I'm sure they were gorgeous. IMHO while I still live every Z I think that the Z31 did not age that well. It has a really square 80s style look to it and it is my least favorite Z. On the other hand the Z32 has seemed to defy time with aging and still looks great afer 20 years.

So my question is which do you think will look better 20 years down the road? The 350 or the 370? Only based on looks/ cosmetics. I really like the curvy lines of the 370 but I wonder how well it would age compared to the 350 and Z32 300zx.

It's nothing serious just always a question/ discussion I wanted to have with some Z guys.

EDIT: Also which would be the better car to keep for a long time?

370Z, I think the lines flow better... Then again, I have always hated the 350Z...

I think the Maxima will age almost as good too actually

I'm more partial to the 370 than the 350. There was just something a little "off" about the 350 to me.

Having owned everything from a 240Z, 280ZX,300Z,300ZX and 350Z and now a 370Z.....

I would have to say the 370Z...

I did love the sound and off line torque of the 350Z more, but as far as a total package ?

The 370Z...

Interesting. That's so awesome! You've owned almost every Z? Which would be your 2nd pick behind the 370?

And you don't think the 370's styling will age bad like the Z31 did? (Not trying to hate on the Z31 lol it just lost it's "aggressive" look as it aged)

I guess I'm weird. I like the Z31. Tried to buy a ten-year old one in high school because my buddy had one too. My parents shut that down pretty quickly.

I think Second is the 350Z...I traded my White 300ZX for the 350Z....The 350Z was such an improvement over the 300ZX..

Third is the 300ZX...I ran special Brakes and Pirelli P7's on it and it was crazy fun, Rain or shine...

Fourth is the 240Z for the History of it...I actually had Square Bias Ply tires on that one...

Didn't care much for the Red 300Z..Although the first V-6, it looked Bloated..

And of course I kept my 1971 Z/28 throughout owning all the Datsun and Nissans...

Wow. That's quite a list of great cars. I'm supremely jealous.

So out of owning all these Z's the 370 is the best overall one in your opinion?

I know this is gonna make me sound stupid but when I finish college I want to get either a 350 or 370Z but I'm torn as to which one to go for. If I was fortunate enough to purchase either one I would be looking to keep it for a long time and make it "my baby". I have a few years to go but I'm still dreaming

The 370Z would be the better one if I could afford it?

The 350's just going to keep getting older while you finish up college. Just get the 370. I'm biased because I don't like the 350, but I'm right anyway.

Or go much older and find a 240/260/280.

nismo edition of both Z33/Z34 are cars to keep the Nismo Z33 becuase of it's numbering but the doesn't matter seeing they will all be wrecked in due time making numbers more rare!
