Depends what you mean by "bad" and if you are willing to live with it or not. I love my early 260z (unique in so many ways).
Best aspect of 240Z: 2300-2350 lb. curb weight (260Z = 300+ lb. heavier)heroe said:If its a toss up between the two, go for the 260z. Its a mix of the best aspects of a 240z and 280z.
And slower than either, in a straight line or around a road course.heroe said:260z is lighter than a 280z, Stiffer than a 240z,
But makes no more power than a '70-'72 240Z. That "hotter" cam and bigger intake don't amount to much in terms of power, even coupled with additional displacement in the 260Z and bigger exhaust valve, not enough to make up for the compression ratio drop vs. '70-'72.and it has a stroked 240z motor with the hottest stock cam and bigger intake.
Dude, the 260Z is a great car, but there's absolutely no reason for you to delude yourself that it combines the "best" attributes of the 240 with the "best" attributes of the 280. It simply doesn't.That should tell you what you need to know.
