Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

Maybe not in white, but I like them - my uncle used to drive one and the dash alone was so cool - imagine it - I saw it in 1992 and was 14 years old. There's lots of lights and when you put your foot down there's a very sexy array fo lights coming on in the dash - all electronic... mmm nice...

Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

I quite like it as its a beefy RWD car, but it certainly isn't cool.

Sort of a Japanese Ford Capri if you like.

I prefer the Supra Twin Turbo

Nice in its own way but definitely not cool to own or be seen in.

Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

That's an absolutely shocking colour

Anyway, can't make up my mind about this one, so, in the absence of an "erm dunno" button I vote uncool :thinks:

Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

Driven one, and they're sub zero. Still fast enough to show plenty of modern exotica a clean pair of heels.

But as another poster said, far too many automatics about

Why put an auto 'box in a sports car?

Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

Japanese, sporty and retro. Can only be cool. Not sub zero though, that belongs with the Supra.

Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

No doubt it was very cool in it day, but that day has well gone I think now.

The only older Japanese car that is cool in this category that I can think of is the NSX.

Because it's an American-style "sports" car. This is the distant descendant of the Nissan Fairlady (240Z), but everyone knows it is no longer Fairlady but Fatlady. Its styling is quite mild and bland, so from a distance it could be confused with a Subaru SVX (uncool) or this seriously uncool Saturn SC2 Coupe...

Re: Nissan 300ZX Z32

very uncool, the original Z cars are another matter though.

i nearly bought an imported short wheel base(no t bar) one of these, that was a manual but i decided not to as 14k was a bit rich for me at the time, it was a '97 car and i was looking at it in '99.

it went like hot snot though, very very quick. im glad i didnt get one now, the only ones you see now are all contenders for barryboys

Coolish, it aint no frezer for coolness but coolish. I like the engines in em hideously complicated. Prefer the big celica aka Supra way better engine in them 600bhp on standard internals

You'll be pleased to know Saturn noticed, and facelifted it.
Now it looks so bad, it's America's answer to the Fiat Coupe!
Or maybe the Hyundai Coupe.
