Title: 300zx??
Post by: sparkysparks on 12:43, Thu 07 May 2009
Has anyone on here owned one, ive always loved them and plan on getting one next year,
Its goin to be my next adventure i think, moving onto bigger, but not neccessarily better things :D
Ive heard they're a total bitch to maintain, ie cambelts are a near engine bay stripdown.

They are a pig to work on under the bonnet. I had a look at one under the bonet at a garage where it needed a new cam follower and half the engine had to come out. I take it you mean the twin turbo.


Ive always liked the look of them in standard from without silly body kits !!

yeah short wheel base twin turbo, love em, no bodykits, factory standard with stupid power, the way it should be.
Thing is you can get them quite cheap, almost R5 cheap, and i can get insured now.

nice expression :D
i tried all the usuals, celica gt4, 200sx, skylines, scoobys, the lot and the 300zx was the only one that gave me a decent enough quote to go for it, the 200sx and gt4 were about the same, but i just love them. ice white :D
