Hey Everyone,

My name is Boris, I have been a Nissan Z fan for as long as I can remember.

I have owned a 1990 automatic 300zx twin turbo, a 1992 manual 300zx twin turbo, and a 2005 manual 350z.

I had to let the 2005 go many years ago because I couldn’t use a 2 seater for my daily driver anymore, but I am now in a place where I can have an extra car, I really miss my Z so I just started looking for one again.

Any my recommendations on where to look other than craigslist, not feeling eBay...

I want to get one with 100k or less on it, maybe the last few years they were in production.

Anything i I should make sure to check on any prospects?

Thanks in advance for any feedback

Last I checked, the obvious answer isn’t always the only option, but thanks for the input...

I really like Cargurus,com . Combines listings across a very wide range of dealers and even some private sellers. If you're primarily searching for an 07-08 with the VQ35HR, there's not much to worry about outside of standard maintenance/care. Just try to find a Z with a clean title and history, preferably one from a private seller who showed strong pride of ownership. I'm jaded against dealers because they usually just throw away all the history/paperwork pertaining to the vehicle and rely solely on a carfax. I've seen plenty of dealer offerings that try to hide underlying issues.

I used national CL searches to find my 4 door Z - had to fly 1000 miles and drive it back, but you might find something a couple hours away that's worth your time.
