Re: N/A 300zx or SVT Contour

Is buying an N/A 300zx like buying a V6 mustang? Or is a N/A 300zx almost as good as a TT. Ehh... Maybe not.

an n/a 300zx is kinda like buying a v6 mustang only because it is the cheaper version of a the TT and the mustang is the cheaper version of the GT or any othe model. But then again the 300zx is still a nice car and is decently quick so i wouldnt compare it to a v6 mustang.

Re: N/A 300zx or SVT Contour

i beat a mustang that is 10 years newer than me. so not only is the z a nicer car, it is also faster.

Ok, why dont we just say, Buying an N/A Z32 Is like buing a mustang GT, and Buying a Z32 TT is like buying a Mustang Cobra? Does that suit it better?

a little better but still a mustang shouldnt be compared at all because it cant do half of the stuff a z32 can. for example, take corners like a pro, get looks everytime you hop in it, increase your sex life by 75%.

Um...no...???...they can do it because they are extremely well balanced, but the 1/4 is not their intended use.

All in all...if you want a sports car, the Z is the ONLY way to go...if you're looking for a grocery getter, could I interest you in a Neon SRT-4? SRT-4 is a 100X more than the ford for one HELL of a price. I just HATE FWD...

I have a 99 v6 mustang and a 91 300zx, the mustang is nothing compared to the 300zx. The mustang is only used for when the 300zx is getting worked on. The mustang cant handle worth jack sh!t!!! So much body roll, the 300zx on the other hand wants to be driven hard around hairpin corners and curves. As mentioned before...the 300zx isnt meant to be a 1/4 mile racer but rather an all round touring car, but if u did want to kick some ass....get on the highway!

Re: N/A 300zx or SVT Contour

Man, is it even worth buying a N/A 300zx? If i got one I'd get the 5spd of course. But are they good enough to buy or is the TT just the good 300zx? I don't know if its good enough

Re: N/A 300zx or SVT Contour

Again...depends on what you plan on using the car for. If you don't WANT...or NEED the power or potential, then why get the TT? Costs more...to buy, maintain and drive/own...why go that route if you're just gunna use it to pick up groceries?

Re: N/A 300zx or SVT Contour

Man, I am not going to be picking up groceries. I am going to be driving it here, there and everywhere. I am 16 years old, I don't buy groceries. I would LOVE to have that 300hp and the sound and sexiness of the twin turbos. I have always loved 300zx, my wallet just isn't too large. I'm 16 I have a great job but to save up 10,000 would take like 2 years.
