240Z in Sunset Orange (350Z Colour)


Recommended Posts

Just found these pics the other day - what a CLEAN 240! I'm not too fond of the colour, but I thought some would be interested. And that's not the only thing about this 240Z which is from a 350Z............:bunny:

I like the color! The rims are a little tall IMO, makes the tires look like rubberbands. But the side by side comparison shot just shows how much better looking the 240Z is over the frumpy 350Z.

I like the color. Frumpy! Great word, Vicky! I've been looking for a word to accurately describe the 350Z. I'd like to see a performance comparison test between these two. It wouldn't be any less fair than the ones I've seen in magazines so far.:classic:

Yes "Frumpy", like a big fat grandma, that has a little pep, but you've seen pictures of her when she was thin, sleek and fast (240Z)LOLROFL

So is that the 350Z engine under the hood? i'm not so good at identifying engines by sight. Is there any write up about the conversion process (maybe over at HybridZ)?

Thanks,

Ty

That's what I think too, Stephen. VG30DETT converted to one mumma-chunk turbo? In any case, I love the fact that the bodywork is all stock (mostly). Can't say I'm a fan of the wheels but I wouldn't complain!!

datsun-sports, do you have any more pictures of this beauty??

The car looks nice and I'm sure it is a blast to drive, but aestetically, I don't care for tires that are stretched to fit the rims, in other words too narrow for the width of the rim, I don't get that. I like the concept and the execution and even the color. Nice job.

The color actually works for me. Maybe it is because it still has the nice new shine and all to it but I think it fits the car well. The rims I agree, I am not so sure.

I think the second thumbnail Alfadgog posted says it all! Come on now, which one do you think looks way better? Certainly Nissan never compared, well maybe they did, the two cars side by side. I've always believed that during the design phase of a new car or motorcycle, the Japanesse are so proud of their work and great design that before completeing it they start celebrating by pounding down the good old rice wine.....hic, hic, hic. Once they're thoroughly slousched, they finish up the effort. Remember this the next time you indulge in saki. Can you imagine if the new Z had the similar look of the old Z.....kind of like what Ford did with the new GT40.

The very thought makes me tingle all over! Oh man... :love:

That prototype is ugly... especially the front end.

I think the 350Z is a great looking car. Although, to me it never really reinvents the Z as a small, light sports car capable of playing with the *big guys.*
