Re: This might sound stupid but...
I read this entire post. I feel a little tired, and sad, and kinda sick like when you see a car wreck on the highway and you know somebody got hurt.
At any rate, I wanted to say a couple things to dreamin_of_a_zx:
Nobody is flaming you because you're a girl. We have had many females post on Zcar.com and they are all welcome. Some people took offense to your borderline insult of a long-time member's car, and that you seemingly refused to search for info. Also, you immediately played the "You hate me because I'm a girl and you don't think I know anything about cars" card. That bothers almost all of us. You kind of made it look like you DON'T know anything about the Z when you compared it to a FWD/AWD 4 cylinder car. Your post a few lines down about looking for a Z in the Maine area showed how you would normally be treated, which is very well, if you don't insult other Z owners and put your nose in the air when we help you by telling you that SEARCH can answer most, if not all, of your initial questions. At any rate, if you really want a 300ZX, I say continue to SEARCH for info on this site, and post any specific questions or comments that you might have, and you'll fit right in. Continue to tell people that their car is "trash," continue to refuse to search for questions that have been answered dozens of times, continue to compare the Z32 with cars that are nothing like it, and you will continue to get flamed.
