Just turned 28.

I think I'm one of the few people that can't wait til they get in there 30s ... Because I don't even remotely want to look like I'm driving something that Mommy and Daddy bought for me. Mom and Dad didn't give me a dime since I was 13 and I thank them for that.

I'm 18 and getting a Z later today (hey, I know, it's 2:27 in the morning so it counts as the day I'm getting my Z!!!).

Again, rest assured that I am quite mature and will not try to wreck my Z. In all my measly 3 years of driving, zero tickets, and I actually try to learn how to properly maintain and operate a sportscar. You know, non of that powershifting psychotic testosterone-driven leet-macho mentality that screams to rice out that Dodge Neon and thinking that extra stickers = more horsepower.

Peace

63. The Z isn't as fast as my motorcycles, but lots of fun. Actually, it can get around corners faster than the bikes.

40 years young this december, I bought mine because I love the Z series. I driven Z's for 20 years and I still own the first one I bought plus 3 more since then. 260z, 240gto, 280zx coupe and now the 350z. All are modded and road going monsters.

Kind of weird, people saying it isn't practical and all. My kids are grown, it is my wife and me, what is practical about driving around with 3 empty seats, eh? Hey, this way we are optimizing all available space...that's the way I see it. In other words, driving around a sedan with only 25% of the available seating used 95% of the time is not practical. I think 50% of the available seating used 50% of the time, 100% the other 50% of the time is extremely practical (grin)!

srm
I'm 40 also and just love cars but I love your percentage breakdown and I also find that now that I only have 2 seats I have someone who wants to be a passenger all the time.

49 years of age here. I have wanted a Z ever since my next door neighbor got an original orange 240Z back in the very early 70's (I think I was around 14 or so at the time). His parents bought it for him for his birthday (he got tired of the motorcycle they bought him for Christmas ) and they hid it in our garage for a couple of days. Six "practical" cars (my favorite being my 1997 Maxima SE), and two grown kids later, I finally satisfied the Z craving that I jonesed about for over 20 years.

The best part was being able to write a check for it.

Funny thing about this Z, isn't it. It appeals to a very wide range of ages, incomes, demographics, both genders.

I'm another one that first admired the original Z's back in the mid-70's.

And yes, very, very cool to be able to just write a check for it! I couldn't have done that 30 years ago, for sure. One of the blessings that comes with age... ;-)
