    OK, we'll do that. Then we'll drift in my car and see what one we like better.

    Clint, you should come out the streets on July 7th, or 8th. Although, I'll understand if it's to HOT for your 370 out there in July. LOL.

    I wasnt trying to prove a 370 is a better drift car. Your car is longer wheel base and has less mechanical rear grip.so your s is easier to drift. U just was saying it can't

    Great discussion photo! Do note, however, that in its last few years the 350 had more stylish (but slower) 19" wheels.

    You're too new here to know that GreyFocus' signature line used to be "Your Mom's Main Squeeze." I always thought that was kind of creepy and he finally dropped it.

    Awesome! We'll have a little Z car challenge, although I just put on a set of Z1 Drifts so I won't be breaking any time records, but we'll have fun trying.

    See you out there.

    Call me crazy, but I think if the 350Z exterior styling came from Porsche, fans might say it's the best looking Porsche since the creation of the 911.

    Is there a link that you inadvertently omitted that tells me how?

    In the meantime, do note that Carlos Ghosn is of Lebanese descent, but was born in Brazil, which he still regards as his home. In addition to being the chairman (and savior) of Nissan, he is also the chairman of Renault. As such, he is indirectly responsible for 1 in 10 of all cars sold on a world-wide basis, so he is probably not the guy at the drawing board. Seriously, his biography is quite amazing:

    Thanks. I now better understand.

    And, indeed, it is kind of creepy - old school or not.

    You're crazy.

    I used to like both 350s and 370s until I found out about all of their design flaws.

    Clint, why don't you get a 350Z and race in the new Spec class? That way you won't have to be "boostin' for the b!thches" anymore.

    What's really depressing is how Tiff Needell was endlessly plugging 350Z as a great trackday car. Must have track tested it on a rainy day or something.

    I think they are both ugly and honestly would never own either. HOWEVER if I was stuck with one it would be the 370 I suppose mainly for the wider track and extra ponies. Never driven the 370 but I have driven more than one 350 in stock trim and pressurized (greddy tt and hks rotrex) and never liked any of them in terms of handling.

    Nismo Diff, and KW suspension, but it's been completely re-valved and set up with proper spring rates tuned to my tastes. Of course being a 350, I have just about every other part of the suspension changed with better A-arms, toe / tie rod links and everything else I need to get proper camber/caster. I've got it down to 3090 lbs.
