I got a chance to drive a '91 300ZXTT today and I have got to get one. I'm going to go car shopping tomorrow and see how upside down I'll be on my truck, but who cares. I've got to get one(didn't I already say that). What I want to know is what year would be the best to buy. I've looked at the price ranges and I don't think I can afford anything over a '95 but if the monthly's are right I'll go for it. I heard the '94 was the first year with dual airbags(more weight). I believe the lighter it is the faster it can go so. Any input for me? I want a newer/faster Z! Thanks in adveance.

don't buy a 90 or a 96. 90's had cam problems (most were fixed but you can't be sure). they also had weird interior combinations (like canvas like cloth seats). as for the 96's they are the first year of obdII (gov't required program for emissions) and are harder to modify. i called jim wolf technologies in CA. when i was looking for mine and they filled me in on all the specifics. you might want to try calling them (sorry, i don't have the # handy). also, in 94, the exterior wing got changed and moved to the base of the rear window.

get a '94

get a 94 becouse they have the most stuff.
like in 94 they relocated the seat belts from the door to the A piller
they still had adjustable cams
had dual air bags?(i don't care much for them anyways)
starting in 95 they had to detune the engines for emmissions--only 280hp instead of 300hp

still have a better color line

If I had the money I would own a 94
and do some major tweeking

check twinturbo.com
they should have a time line of events and changes to the gen2 300zx
