Best generation!

I'm sure this has been done, but there's new people in our community now. Pick what you think is the best generation Z and why.

i like the s130, because it still looks original but it has upgraded suspension and brakes. But the z32 is close second

a street prepared S-30 will hand a street prepared Z32 it ***... The 240Z will out perform everything Nissan ever made until the Z-32TT beat it in a straight line... IMO the 280ZX are the worst Z cars ever made... over and over and over again... Horsepower will not help... the S-30s are the best road course cars Nissan ever made...



Z-33s are another easy mark... they are WAYYYYYYYY TOOO HEAVY



The only thing the S-30 series can be beat by the later models is drag racing... even then you better have quick reflexes... the S-30s are light...

The 280zx is the BEST Z car EVER made. It was my first sportscar, and I own 3 of them. Granted I still want a S30 someday. But the 280zx will always be my favorite Z car period. It just blows away in looks compared to the rest of the series.

Sorry had to put my thoughts, because the 280zx was dissed on. I am usually cool, and respect the other Z's. But I do get tired of people putting down the 280zx, or any Z for that matter. I am not a fan of the Z33, but I wont slam it down either. Just not my cup of tea.

Well the S30 is the original but I am a S130 kind of guy. Yea out of the box it needs some work, but with a lil tweak here and there it can look fawkin sexy. I would have to say more so than any other Z due to the lines. It has the perfect balance of angular and round lines. Sexy, just damn sexy . . .

I own an S30 and I've owned 2 TTs. Both cars with full bolt ons, the TT will win in every aspect. S30's are easily buildable to be great road course cars, but it's hard to beat a built TT.

We had 3... countem THREE Z32TTs DIE on track with major engine failures this year...

Even when they were running I would find them in a group of turns and then they would zoom away putting nearly 500ft between us on a long straight... but I would be back on their tail after a few turns... eventually I would pass and get enough distance we never traded places on another straight...

I always beat their times in TT... I get an easy 1:30 at roebling in mid summer... that heat would kill a Z32 in one session...

There are only 2 Z32tts that I have seen regularly on track... and I have heard horror stories of engine damage from those guys as well...

I think it is an impressive pony car... It can be pushed to 600HP on the drag strip... BUT... I have seen enough of them die on road courses in one year to totally put me off on them... there is no way I would waste my money there...

LOL..... the last TT I saw on a road course ended the day with a spun rod bearing. The funny thing with those guys is that they can't refrain from dialing up the boost **** and melting things down.

I see a s30 in my future, but I'd blasphemize it with a motor from a different manufacturer.

S130...and I dont need an F'ing reason. It's just the best (and the poll results thus far show that ) I rank it just above the S30.

(I will say that I'm basing my vote almost purely on the cosmetic aspect of the cars. Obviously the S130 was not the best performer out of the box)

Here is the 3 S130's (280zx's) Bluestreak, (in my sig already) Prowl, and Smokescreen. And what's with my junk? LOL The old transformers, are getting more valueable, as the years go by.

Yes the movie comes out July 4, 2007. There is a trailer for it, on www.transformerslive.com. Check it out man, killer teaser trailer.

As for any 280zx's in the movie, not that I know of. But I hope so, that would be sweet.

Ok I voted for the unloved 350Z (on this forum anyway)...mine is an absolute blast to drive especially since I got the exhaust and intake and it sounds INCREDIBLE and basically handles like a slot car...great all-around sports car.

Although I love the looks of the 350Z, I say the most beautiful Z ever is the original 240/260/280Z...some of the best lines ever...

I don't mean to diss any of the other Zs....I like them all....especially the 280ZX since that was my first sports car.

The bottem line is: All Zs FTW!!!!
