350Z and 200sx

Saw a gold 350Z and a silver 200sx fly down a street near my uni in canberra last night. They were one after eachother and me thinks that a local car mag might have been doing a comparo? Hope so.

Who likes the 350z? I must say its looks are definitely growing on me, and the ad for it is a gem...

I'm a big fan of the 350Z, have been since they were introduced in one of the motor mags months ago. Only problem is that i've only seen one on the road and that was tonight, and he was on the other side of the highway doing 100km/h in the opposite direction!

And the ad(s) are very nice too.
I got up close and personal to the ones at the MMS and was suitably impressed.

For $60k, there is some very nice cars to be had at the moment, now, how the hell do i get $60k??

There's SuperNintendo Chalmers!!

Principal Skinner, I got car sick in your office.

So, do you like.... stuff??

200sx is getting canned, so Im not so sure what the advantage of a comparo is. Still the japs know how to make cars ! Especially Nissan.

I spent a week watching two 350z s (as well as 100+ other cars) do stages on the Grand Prix Rally .. after watching them I would rather spend my $60 on something better. They look like a good pose cruiser.. but from what I have seen.. a sports car it aint.

i liked the 350z when it came to the MMS a couple of years back...now i am bored of the shape, the front looks to much american (MHO). For 60k on a jap car i would go the RX8, but if i had 60k to spend on any NEW car it would have to be the GT, where in the world can u get that much power in a big car for that price???

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
