About “300zr2”

owned since 2002. bought STOCK except for I.C.E. consisting of MTX subs and amps and a Clarion head unit and some hideous 17" chrome rims.

i quickly sold the rims and attached a set of Axis touring cups temporarily. then began the parts search to customize the 300 and make it mine.

i started showing the car and placed at show after show taking home awards at every event EXCEPT HotImportNights, which is still a goal.

last year i beefed up the performance to match the looks of the car.
Its been down the drag and sliding across the track at MyrtleBeach's slidefest. Ive also had my share of rolling street races but-
In 07 i plan to tune it to better suit road racing and compete in time trials at the track.

The Z32 300ZX Turbo was on Car and Driver magazine's annual Ten Best list every year it was available, from 1990 through 1996. The Z32 Turbo was also Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year for 1990. It was critically acclaimed by many magazines as being a complete turnaround from the Z31, which many critics felt was a sloppy-handling GT, far from the agile, sporty 240Z of years past. From the year it was introduced, it won many comparison tests against similar sports cars such as the Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth and the Mazda RX-7, as well as the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Thunderbird, Toyota Supra and the Porsche 968. In some comparison tests for the prototype 1991 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo, the Stealth came out on top.

The Z32 300ZX also made it to Automobile Magazine's list of 25 Most Beautiful Cars in August 2006 and 20 Greatest Cars in April 2006.
