800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1990 Nissan 300ZX is part of the new great class of vintage cars that comes with a rev-happy modern multi-valve motor and plenty of modern conveniences. But since it has crossed the 30-year threshold, it also 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, and when this generation first hit the scene in 1990, it made a big impression. The rounded design almost looked like Nissan was doing impossible things with sheetmetal. And the profile of this shorter wheelbase model is always more popular. It has that perfect low-slung sportscar style that made it a true exotic (heck, even Lamborghini eventually borrowed the headlight design.) It really looks fantastic in its correct Aztec Red. This looks like the factory paint, and it has been so well looked after that even over a quarter-century later it still gives you a bright radiance in the sunshine. It's this exceptional level of care and preservation you see over the whole car, right down to the factory 16-inch alloy wheels that look like they've never done battle with a curb. That's what you get on a car that has averaged less than 1,400 miles annually.
When you climb inside, there's little doubt that this car was for drivers. The bucket seats hold you in place during spirited driving, but remaining comfortable for long-distance hauls, too. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. Just like the exterior, the interior is in exceptional condition. So you'll find few signs anyone ever sat in these seats or even rested a foot on the carpeting. 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 features like power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, and a Bose stereo system now upgraded with an AM/FM/CD deck. You know you want to take off the T-tops and cruise this Z all-year round, and that's no problem thanks to the automatic climate control that includes 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. This one appears to remain fully original in this low mileage coupe's ultra-tidy engine bay. Not only is this well-preserved, but also 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. So this is the classic with daily driver sensibilities. But when you're ready for fun, the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes instantly remind you how the Z-car is a true all-around stunner.
Complete with owner's manual, 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!
