Just curious: why do the vast majority of Z resources diss the 280ZX so badly? They all describe it as a pig, slow, etc. etc. I am the proud owner of a NA 280ZX 5sp with 87k miles; with a few tweaks (low restriction cat, K&N, etc.) I am running around an 8-second 0-60. I personally think the car handles great, has awesome brakes for an older car and has tremendous road feel even with my relatively lame 14 tires. I've only driven a 280Z once and really don't remember it very well - are the older Z's really THAT much better than the ZX?
Why do people hate the ZX so?
