I am just curious as to what all the forum users have for other vehicles. I will list all the families
1) 78z about to be transplanted with turbo intercooled 81zxt motor, 3.7 LSD, toy calipers ...
2) 89 pathfinder SE-v6 31X10.5 Dunlop Rover R/T's (excellent winter tire), Rancho 9000 5 awy adjustable shocks, 98 PF mags .This is a very capable 4x4 recovered my dads Bronco, gets decent gas milage not bad power and is super quiet and tight. It handles amazingly well for a 4x4 . A good well rounded package
3) 97 Altima (dads)
4) 78 Bronco (dads)
5) 48 WWII Jeep (dads)
6) 90 Eagle Talon (brothers)
7) 70 Nova 350, 327 heads keithblack cam ... 375 hp corners like crap and has 4 wheel drums (brothers)

Stray vehicles just follow us home, variety is the spice of life isn't it ?? I have driven quite a variety of vehicles including Armoured Personel Carriers, Tanks, 6 wheel drive, 8 wheel drive .

RE: What other vehicles do you guys have??

I have an 87 Honda Accord. Stock.
An 81 280ZX n/a 2+2. Stock. WORSE than stock actually. hehe
An 83 280ZX. Stock.
I'd like to ask a personal question, what is the average age in here? It's probably really varied.....I just turned 19
I've gone through cars like underwear the last year or so.
a Rabbit, a Nissan Sentra, an Asuna Sunfire, a Honda and now a Datsun. Oh, and a 78 Landcruiser.

but Datsun is definately my fave.

cheers

1. '86 Jaguar XJ6 Series 3- Wifes daily driver.
2. '67 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 roadster- My other fun car
3.'86 Ford Tempo Series none- Back up for when the Jag is broke.
And 4. '74 Datsun 260 Z because it looks a lot like an E-Type coupe, but a lot cheaper to race:)

RE: What other vehicles do you guys have??

A Jaguar E-Type?!? I keen reminding myself to get one of those, but then I remember I can't afford to buy one and keep it up. Perhaps you could show us all a picture.

I just have an 83ZX, and my family has a Geo Prism (aka the Gutless Wonder) and of course our Chevy Astro Van. I am trying to get a couple of 240Z's, one for me and one for my dad, I think he would enjoy that better than the van for his commute to work...

All sorts of stuff

I used to have an 85 cadilac, the suspension was bad and I could jump the front tires off the ground! hehe

I now drive a 96' Chevy S10 that my folks were nice enought to buy me.

I also have a 76 Husquavarna dirt bike for raising ****! hehe

Oh, grampa joe, i think we have the same tractor as you. Gotta love the rear weenies.

I love to go out and have fun in my 240. I had it painted last summer and soonafter finished the mechanicals. The purple is a real head turner. Everyone seems to like it, except mustangs if you get my drift!

I am also 19 Years old FYI

Laterzz- Evan

I am one of those lucky guys whose wife is as fanatical about cars and racing as I am.

<b>Too Many Cars</b>

Right now I own a 78 280, 97 Honda Civic and an 86 Jetta. I recently sold my Saab 900 (the best winter car I have ever driven) A year and a half ago I sold my 2 300zx turbos and my wifes most unreliable car I have ever owned Olds Calais that stomped mustangs with the 180hp Quad 4. My current tow vehicle for the Z is a 86 Lincoln town car that my dad gave me.

Oohhh the cars that I have owned. I can hardly remember them all.
Other cars I have owned:
1972 240Z
80 Mustang
81 Capri
87 Tempo
I think thats all of em!!

RE: All sorts of stuff

Up to about 100mph they are even, then the 911 has the edge. The 911 is a European tuner car with a 3.2L engine and about 240hp in a tightly geared 2550lb package. Bigger injectors or a better FPR and more boost will make the Z quicker and faster. Now, if I could figure how to put the 911 brakes on the Z. Anyone who has driven one with performance pads know what I am talking about. Stopping is equally important to me as HP.

RE: What other vehicles do you guys have??

My other vehicle is a 4Runner Limited. Kind of funny that my truck is a softer ride than my car!
I would also count my bicycles as other vehicles since most of them cost more than I would get if my insurance company totalled my Z. (not collector car insurance)
Bianchi Mondiale with Campagnolo Record Ergo
Lemond Carbon Fiber with Shimano Dura Ace
Gary Fisher Team Carbon Fiber MB
I ride alot!

RE: What other vehicles do you guys have??

Well, I'm 21 and live in Brisbane, Australia.n I've had a Nissan/Datsun Pulsar I bought off a guy who sold Z's. It was ok, but the transmission broke after a while and I just had to get a Z! I now have a mustard 71 240Z. Most of the people I know here who have Z's are 30-40. The young guys generally get the 280's, though I like the styling better on the 240's. I'll probably step up to a 300ZX when I have some cash - though that's a while away yet!
