Eh, I stopped liking the Z after the 280. The 300ZX was when it started becoming Americanized. It's probably powerful, yes, but it's so...bleh. It's the opposite of what the whole Z series should've been. A small, light, quick and good looking sports coupe.

That's just my opinion though...if you love your new car, power to you man. Get some new wheels though.

It's the other way around. Torque is pulling power.

No, torque is the power the wheels have to spin basically. HP, is just a measurement of power-output. Thats why torque gets you going, gets the wheels spinning at the beginning.

Its ALL STOCK, ALL ORIGINAL. 1990 300ZX Twin Turbo - 5 speed.

69,000 Miles.

My goal for this car is just to drive and enjoy.. I will do little too no mods on it.

(I have already smoked enough cars with my old DSM)

Check it out.









Beautiful! Looks mint I always loved the 300ZX it doesnt look like a 90's car. The TT has a lot of modding potential, if you got the moding bug on your DSM im sure you will get it at the 300ZX. Gratz.
