I would think this to be the right section. To be honest, its all about preference. The 240 and 280 are nearly identical twins with slight differences. The 280z has bigger bumpers, that can be removed and replaced with 240z bumpers (or shaved). The 240z comes with a carb'd 2.4L engine, while the 280z has a slightly more powerful 2.8L fuel injected engine. I personally love both, but if you're on a budget, or not mechanically inclined, the 280z is probably better. Easy to work on, diagnose, will run forever. The biggest factor is finding one with little to no rust.
There's not a whole lot of differences, and I don't think anyone will scold you one way or the other. They're both great cars. The 240z is a little more expensive, the 280z is a bit more advanced.
