1991 Nissan 300ZX Fairlady 3.0 twin turbo from UK and Ireland
If your wife doesn't understand you and you don't like the neighbours, get one of these... PERFECT
I went to buy an Alfa, and next to the garage was a Japanese import company, and there sitting with a set of 19 inch deep dish alloys, was a beautiful black 300ZX twin turbo. I didn't even bother seeing the Alfa.
After a quick test drive, I parted with my money, put the targa tops in the boot, and made my way home thinking of how to explain to my wife why there was a brash 'in your face' car on the drive instead of a pretty Alfa... She never did understand, nor did she drive it!!! That said, I did, and what a car!!
This is the only car I've had where people knocked on my door just to talk about it...
A great driving car, and very easy to kick the rear out on a damp surface and have some fun. Very stable at speed on motorways, and with the aggressive looks in a rear view mirror, people would generally move out the way just to see what it was.
I was 41 when I bought it, loved every minute of it until someone drove into it. If I could find one that hadn't been chavved up, as I don't own a track suit or cap, I would buy another.
I had a special set of wheels and a subtle stainless exhaust upgrade (Veilside), which just burbled beautifully in tickover and growled when spanked. I loved going to car events, and again always found myself with plenty of admirers.
For overall fun, reliability and just knocking 20 years off my age, this car ticked every box.. I loved it!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
