Re: who hates a Zcar?

Sure, other 280ZX owners aren't going to diss it, but those who own the earlier ones, especially the 240Z, like them because they're closer to being a true racecar: lightweight, simple, easy to repair and modify (especially now that they're exempt from smog laws in many areas), and with a superior rear suspension design. How many 280ZX's do you see on the racetrack? The 280ZX is the next step in a line of Z's that got progressively heavier, more luxurious, more complicated, and more expensive. Just depends on your preferences.

Hmmm.....interesting Zebra! I'm 6'5 and I fit perfect in my 81 ZXT. I think it's all in what your after. I wanted a quick, fun to drive car that wouldn't beat me to death on long trips. My Z is everything I could ask for in a sports car and didn't break the bank.
