Why did you decide to buy a Z?

folks, what made you decide that a Z was gonna be your car of choice? Just curious. 

For me it goes way back to the early 80's

I have never owned a z car before, but I have very vivid memories of taking a 240z for a test drive way back in the early 1980's. This red with a black roofed 240z had just been traded in and was up the back of Giddings' car dealership in Moss Vale. I rocked up. Asked how much. The salesman said "about three grand." In the early 1980's, that was a fair bit of cash. But not a massive lot. I asked if I could take it for a drive and he said "sure, no worries." He added. "Don't flog it, because we don't know much about it."
Well, I don't think I flogged it, but I gave it a spirited drive and...well, let me just say I have never forgotten the experience.  This car had a 280c engine; twin webbers and went like a rocket!  I have since owned a twin turbo rx7 FD which was very fast, but I reckon that little datto would have given it a hell of a run. 

So, it just seemed natural to me that I should settle down with a z after all these years. 

Could not be happier. It's like coming home to an old friend.

Old school rear wheel drive, manual, sporting feel, good performance, good looks, great value for money, put a big smile on my face when I first drove it... still does!! :)

Totally agree with everything you said. Were you into performance vehicles before you settled on a z?
