Remember the Datsun 280 Z? Remember how the coolest people drove them? I can remember back in the day, even if you didn't buy or drive foreign cars, the "Z " was alright.

When the company went though the terrible 80's and had to reorder their priorities, production ceased on the "Z." Many people were upset and couldn't understand how this most popular car would no longer be available. Now "Z" lovers are vindicated.

It has returned, faster and better. Exhilarating, sleek, comfortable, and fun are just a few of the adjectives that can be used to describe the new two seater 350Z by Nissan. Recently Hardy and I took the test drive from Los Angeles to Long Beach and back. The wrap around seat and the dashboard gives the impression of a being in the cockpit of a jet airplane.

The turbo takeoff adds to the feel of the jet not to mention the optional On-Star navigation system, guiding the driver where-ever they go. We couldn't get lost if we wanted to. The hatchback makes the two seater more roomy. The car we were driving was red and had a 6 speed close-ratio manual transmission. Have no fear young folks who don’t have to learn to drive a stick shift anymore, the car also comes with an automatic transmission.

The new 350Z has the same quality and brakes used by Porsche. Nissan has positioned the 350Z with other high end sports cars and it lives up to its reputation. Before you make a purchase of a Porsche or a Corvette check out the 350Z. They start at less than $25,000
