    What does everyone think of the new Nissan 370 Z?? I do believe I want to look into getting one when I graduate college! Or sooner hopefully!(everyone needs a fun sports car) It has 18inch alloy wheels and a 332 horse power engine, 7 speed! It looks nice! I have not got to drive one yet but I plan on it soon!

    The 7speed is the automatic... who wants an auto in a sports car... unless you're drag racing.

    The manual 6spd has SynchroRev Match... which matches your revs when downshifting which is kinda cool, but those of us who have been racing in manuals for years already know how to do this

    Seems like a pretty solid car tho... I just hope its more mod friendly than the 350z

    I'd go with the 2010 camero the 350 and 370 lok almost Identical the camero looks pretty sweet and it can hang with the 370.

    The Nissan Z-Car has been around since 1969. People love Z's. They have a huge loyal following. I had one, a black 1974 260Z back in high school. I freakin loved that thing! Nissan always sells a bunch of these cars and I'm sure the 2009 370 will be no different.

    The economy is in the shitter, and will be for a while. They're too damn expensive to purchase with this unstable economy.

    Not that bad for what it is, in my opinion! They start at 26,500! But I can def see where you are coming from with the economy!

    How ya think this thing is gonna walk the new Camaro... The Camaro will have almost 100hp over the Z

    Dont get me wrong, I like the new Z, but the Camaro is serious

    Can you find one for 26,500? Those are bare bones models, and dealers never carry bare bones cars on the lots. If you need a car, get something cheap to hold you over till this gets better. You're a young guy, I'd hate to see you start off with a car that is too much money...then lose your job...have the car repossed...screw up your credit...

    Start off with something cheap and when the economy gets better, get the Z.

    This is the best advice you'll hear this year.

    I'd rather have an old Z like Jimmys rather than a new one.

    Something like Mark Rolston's Z.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    The 370Z is sick! love the way that thing looks but the new Camaro is pretty damn cool too. I'd be a tough choice but i think i'd lean toward the Z.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I don't like the new styling too much. I'd take the older design.

    I just feel like the Z you could have a lot more options available for it then you would the Camaro! Does anyone know if you can get one that is twin turbo! Like the Nissan 300z! Then it will def blow the doors off the Camaro! Also the Nissan 350 Nismo was nice! My bestfriend has a 300z twin turbo, and his mom has a 350 nismo! THey also have a 260 that looks about like Jimmy's! Just grey with black stripes! But I def dont plan to purchase anything untill I can make a nice little down payment! And since I have no intentions on trading in the Tacoma! That will be awhile!

    Nice ride! My cousin has a 350 and enjoys it quite a bit. Fairly peppy too.

    Hell if you can afford it without out sticking your self on a limb and its what you want, buy it! Its not like hoarding your money solves any problems, unless you are investing with profitable returns. If anything you will lose money by letting it sit in your savings account after accounting for the outrageous inflation rates & other factors. Putting money back into our economy is the best way to get things moving again!
