Except at the time. I was highly involved in a group of friends racing in a game called Initial D.

Not even close. It's a fun car to drive all the time. I don't worry about rain or snow or rust or really anything and that's why I got it. Don't need back seats and it's cheap to mod and maintain.

I think I made that rather clear in my first post. Obviously at 13 I knew nothing of cars and figured this car costs an arm and a leg. I love the Z but it isn't dream car material anymore

I saw my first 350Z in a Home Depot parking lot in 2004. I just kept walking around the Z thinking “This is pretty cool.” Later I discovered the price and was amazed that I could afford one. So I bought a new one. I was 55 at the time. Cool is still cool wether you are old or young.

No way. I wanted a fast GT and had $10K to spend. I like my Z but if I had $30K to spend, for example, I would have got a Cayman S or a mint E46 M3. Z is a good car though. Fast, cheap, easy to mod, somewhat comfy over long drives and luxurious. Can't complain.

In love with all the Z's, but the dream car for me is a Porsche Carrera GT3 RS

New sig for me

Well I didn't build the Z myself, Nissan did. I just modded it with some off the shelf and some handmade parts to maximize the car I own.

Initially the 350z was not a car I was highly interested in, I liked the drive train but for some reason the rear of the car just never did it for me. The size was right and overall shape was appealing but the original DE just wouldn't push me to buy one.

Then circa 2007 I saw a red Nismo at a car get together a few hours south. At the time I was still in my orange 3s-gte swap Celica with over 200,000+ miles and shell coming from the junkyard; there were certain short comings which would bring my coupling with the Celica to an end.

The Nismo was a great looking car and had a lot of updates I liked, especially the brake system. I'm an enthusiast autocrosser and track day participant. Those that know me are aware I'm in it just for the fun, but a car with a more proper weight balance with updates from the factory in the right places for a great price was hard to beat.

Why did the Nismo become my dream car? The reinforced shell, the relatively cheap price and the parts supply available. Many people dream of supercars, but none of those really provide me anything additional to what I could get from the Nismo. My reasons are probably different than most, but after all the years of working on cars, building and running them my experience has shaped a different view.

I'd say the 350z is an "obtainable dream car" for teens growing up and being able to work for and obtaining one while they are still "young". It was my dream car since high school when it 1st came out. But now years later after graduating from college, I managed to achieve my realistic goal. Now on to my next obtainable dream car, a 2014 Porsche Cayman S

There are dream exotic cars and there dream regular sports cars that are obtainable. The 350z would fall in the latter. To me the 350z was an 'I'll settle for it since I missed all the awesome Japanese super cars in the 90s" car. It was the first new production sports car that Nissan, Toyota, Honda, & Mazda had released that I like. Back in 2003/2004 my choices were the S2000, RX8, or Z. The Z was the only car that fit me comfortably. However after 4 years of ownership I was very disappointed in it for various reasons. My dream obtainable car is a 93-98 Toyota Supra original 6spd TT. Now I am living the dream.

I always wanted one after I saw tokyo drift but i never knew the name of it, until like 4 years ago...and now I have one.

But it was never my dream car, it was just one of the cars I was going to get. My dream car is a Ferrari 458.
