Thanks Zac, very interesting account. The evolution of the zed car is something that I've enjoyed following. Usually over a long period of time, cars should get better, with zed cars there has always been this story about the 240z being agile and lean, then becoming obese with the s130 and z31, and then developing some muscle with the z32, then returning back into a sports car again with the z33, however i feel that it perhaps is only one way of looking at things. After owning some of these cars a long time ago and now looking back at them now, I feel that views can change, what may have felt sporty in the past, may now feel rough and unsafe now. Personal preference, as you mention, is a definate factor. For example when I owned a z31 turbo which cost me 8k at time I went and test drove an original immaculate 240z which was for sale for 15k. After driving the 240z and getting back into the z31 the biggest difference was how good the brakes felt on the z31, and off course the comfort and quietness of the car, whereas the 240z styling was what impressed me the most along with the retro dash.
