1992 Nissan 300ZX
This 1992 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 comes with a rev-happy modern multi-valve motor and plenty of modern conveniences. But since it has crossed the 25-year threshold, it also is eligible for classic car insurance. And when it's as nicely presented as this T-top example, it also has earned its spot on the show field. Everyone loves a Z-car. When this generation first hit the scene, it made a big impression and basically defined the '90s. The rounded design almost looked like Nissan was doing impossible things with sheetmetal. It has that perfect low-sung sports car style that made it a true exotic (heck, even Lamborghini eventually borrowed the headlight design.) It really looks fantastic thanks to a professional respray of its correct Sapphire Blue Metallic, and so you get a great metallic shine the moment the sunlight hits it. And those later-model Nissan alloy wheels complete this standout package (but the factory ones come with the sale, too, if you like to have a stock look.) When you climb inside, there's little doubt that this car was built by and for drivers. The black leather bucket seats have been recently recovered to continue to provide all the best comfort. And you can power adjust yours to the perfect driving condition. The dash is low, giving excellent sight lines. All the controls are at your fingertips, many as close as the edge of the instrument panel. As Nissan's flagship, this Z came with loaded with features like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and a Clarion upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. And we know you want to take off the T-tops and cruise this Z all-year round. So that's no problem thanks to the automatic climate control that includes modern R134a air conditioning. The 3.0-liter DOHC V6 is a truly marvelous motor. With 222 horsepower on tap, this fuel-injected, multi-valve powerplant loves to rev, and it makes a wonderful guttural growl at full throttle. And you are in complete control of this full power and its dual exhaust symphony thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. These engines proved to be virtually indestructible in the real world, and while they respond well to modifications, this one remains stock and tidy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ like a maturely maintained sports car should. In fact, part of the appeal of a sports car like this is it fires up as reliability and has the same everyday usability as any other Nissan. Still, the moment you feel like hitting the open road, the fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy Bridgestone Potenza tires remind you instantly how the Z-car is a true all-around stunner. Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this is the new class of vintage sports cars where you get everything you want, including classic car respect. So when it looks this good and priced so right, you know you need to hurry up and call today!
