If It's True That We Are Judged By The Company We Keep.....

Recommended Posts

I suspect this may have been discussed in the past here on this forum, but it always makes for a good read. If it is true that we are judged by the company we keep, I'd say the 240z is keeping some awesome company these days. (click on the link below to see some of our "stable mates")

Am not sure, but I think a "Doppelganger" is a European term for a chili cheese dog with sauerkraut. But since I dont' quite see the connection between a hot dog and a Datsun, I think I might have to Google that one:)

funny - i had a similar thought when a guy in my neighborhood stopped by in his e-type while i had the z up on stands doing a suspension refresh...

of course having a green z w/wire wheels & headlight covers doesn't hurt the comparison ;)

And if the feature was instead titled "Pick The One That Doesn't Belong Here" which one would you name?

The Ferrari Dino 246, never thought it was a looker.

Seriously?!  and after I followed your build thread!  I like the Ferrari, but didn't like the silly Lamborghini Miura.  That car was fugly.  I do wish that they would have at least shown a stock 240z maybe in a front-side view.  These car comparison articles are all fairly useless but it's always good to see the z-car get some respect.

I passed on the chance to buy a Dino a bunch of years ago before the prices shot way up. I kick myself regularly. Thanks for the reminder.

 

On the good side, if I had bought one, then I wouldn't be here to pester youse guys.  :)

Really?  To each his own.   The 246 Dino is one of my favorite cars.   Shares much with our 240Z's, lovely curves, smaller engine, light weight and good performance (for it's time).

I'm with you Captain. In high school I found one for $10,000. My grandmother offered to loan me the money but I declined. I often wonder how that would have worked out. The only other problem is I don't fit in old Ferrari's as I'm 6'5". My head sticks out above the roof... :D

Ah Pantera, also one of my favorites. I had a friend a while back who had one. Beautiful car and I fit in that one. Although those prices have gotten high recently too.
