Hey Guys,

I have been a Z fan for a long time, and have had a few of them over the years. I have owned a 1990 Z32 TT for the past 20 years, and I took a 2023 Z home today to start playing with. I also have a 1986 300ZX turbo with only 69,000kms. I took a few pictures of the new black z meeting the old black z this evening. Looking forward to making some changes to the new one! I would love to hear some suggestions of what upgrades make the most significant changes power wise.

Thanks... Look forward to following the threads!

These pics are insanely gorgeous. Thank you. You should take some more side profile pics, that pic of them side by side really shows how cars have changed. I never realized how massive the greenhouse of the Z32 was; compared to the RZ-34, it looks huge. The RZ-34 looks like it has a chopped gangster-style roofline by comparison. And the curves on the RZ-34 are very visible, very pronounced, compared to the Z32’s more straight and not really voluptuous body lines. Before your pics, I would have said the Z32 was the best looking Z design of all time…now I would say it’s the RZ-34. Re: mods, the first thing you want to do is upgrade the Bridgestones to Michelin PS4S. It makes a 180 degree difference in terms of grip and acceleration. I did a whole post on my driving impressions with before and after info. Congrats on the new Z!

Congrats, great pics! Except for the in-the-family taillights, those two designs are so different, now that they're side by side. The Z32 is beautiful, flowing design, one of the best Nissan penned, love the waterfall center console. Of course the new Z is a killer design too, so much heritage!

I have to agree on the front end... I have struggled to fall in love with it... There is a body kit from Impul that makes it look pretty good... other than that, I am open to suggestions on what mods to do to make it look better!

All you need now is a black S30 😎
Tell me about it! Want to sell yours? I have a S130… 81 280zx… it has seen better days though, so I have not decided whether to put the money or time into it… I have been working with someone to buy a 78 280z… it may happen still… but an S30 is my dream car!

😎 mine is a keeper. The S30 and Z32 are what led to the RZ34 in many ways. I hope you find one because it would complete your trifecta.
