Didn't read past here, sorry.
Just wanted to comment on the Mazda thing. They are part of Ford's collection (including of course, Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Mazda, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin <-my personal fave!). I know the Mazda 6 and 3 are having some rough spots, not sure on exact details. A friend of mine is a mechanic at a local garage and he advised my GF against they for that reason.
Also, for those of you who care, they make the V6 for the V6 Mustangs. Putting out 221 horses, not too shabby considering the mid 80's 5.0's were only putting about 180 out.
The 350Z is an awesome car and just as much a legend as the Stang. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one, but you have to remember, more than likely, at that price, it has been beaten on. I do not advise on buying a sports/muscle car from anyone other than a little old lady!
I found a WS6 T/A a while back, had a smooth sticker of about 6500, and 116K on the clock, but being a WS6, that was 116K miles of pure hot rodding. sure it held and was driving good, but that's kinda like pandoras box. You really don't wanna open it and if you do, you don't wanna find out what's inside.
I do wish you the best and I hope you go with a G35x instead!!!
