GRM 240Z vs 350Z comparo

    Recommended Posts

    Interesting statement Blake! I have to agree 100% about the relationship between the old Nissan and new Nissan company. I guess if it wasn't for Mr. "G" (can't remember how to spell his name) Nissan would just be another page in the history books. I think its a great thing he did, turning around a company ready to roll over from an old management not willing to change with the times. Hell, Mr. "G" is not even Japanesse! So, I think its safe to say that a comparison between the 240Z/350Z and old Nissan/new Nissan are quite similar. Go figure!!! One thing is for certain....everytime I open my garage and see my beautiful toy (240Z), it always brings a big smile to my face. Now when I go for a drive, an incredible thing happens....a 53 years old man turns into a 20 something year old kid (with a bit more common sense of course). I just LOVE my 240Z...Ahmen! :knockedou

    "I know who Mr. K is, he's a good friend of mine (I own a 240 don't I?)....and Mr. G, you ain't nooooooo Mr. K!" ROFL

    Yess siree DaddyZ-look at my gallery.

    Uh, anyone who has an MGB works on it-The only way to keep one tuned up is to leave it in the driveway :stupid:!

    With an MGB, atleast he isn't driving the price of my Z parts up on ebay!

    Carl,

    I think it's that monotone voice on "American Muscle Car" that hopes we will save all muscle cars. The shrimpy guy is Dennis Gage on "My Classic Car" and that moustache is quite the crumb catcher? I often wonder how much he gets paid to be that goofy.

    Yes Bob, That is the guy (Dennis). That "thing" looks like WAY too much trouble to deal with (not to mention the significant "goofy" factor)

    .............It was Mr K's struggle to convince Japan that they were idiots and he was right. It was the tremendous team in Japan that was locked in a stail design dungeon until the project was approved, and they show their real skills. It was taking Goethe's car and tossing it into the dumpster of stail design history. It's the fact that the 240Z is an American sports car made in Japan, and the 350Z is a Japanese sports car made in Japan.

    Great comedy posting! :laugh: :love:LOL:love: But shouldn't this be in the 'Funnybone' section?

    bpilati, I think I have a job for you. Get yourself over to 'Eyerack' and sort that mess out. They need somebody with vision, and the ability to cut to the chase and sort out the good guys from the bad guys. After you have finished there are a few other hotspots in the world that need a spot of bpilati-stylee analysis.

    The Cast:

    Mr K = White-hatted 'Good Guy' ( in the Gary Cooper mould ).

    The Idiots In Japan = Black-hatted baddies ( er, no names no pack-drill - so no awkward questions about who they are, OK? )

    Goethe = German Philosopher? Only here as a bit-part player ( but hey, he had just as much input on the '240ZEE' as that Goertz guy - so why not? ).

    Yeah, they have a French guy in charge.

    Ghosn is about as French as I am ( ie - not very ).

    Bryan,

    Where does that "fact" come from? Just because we consumed more Z cars than the rest of the world doesn't necessarily give us the right to claim it as our own. If that is the case than the Jaguar XKE was an "American" sportscar made in England? In my opinion that's the kind of thinking that has made the Bush administration a thing to be laughed at on the world stage.

    Bryan, there are some other threads that you should read. People that are educated on the issue disscuss and depate that the Z was designed as a Japanese car with America in mind.
