Nissan 370z

Heading home from minimeet with new member.

https://www.slkworld.com/u-s-florida/...er-ildogg.html

Had top down. Red light I see a 370z a few cars ahead. light goes green and he changes lanes to go around slowpokes. I then zoom around him and he tries to catch up. Gets behind me as I slow for a red light. I one touch the SmartTop and I slow down and it does its thing. Light changes and I pull away as SmartTop is finishing closing and lanes change to 2 from 3. I signal (of course) and change lanes around another car but he gets boxed in. I change back into my lane as he clears the boxing car. I take off and he struggles to catch up. Light is red so I move to left lane and allow him to catch up. I put down my window and and says he really heard me as I went by him. I said I am getting gas up ahead, meet me there if you want to chat. I pull in and he takes the pump behind me. We shake hands. He has his gf in front seat. He said is that a V8? I said absolutely. He said he did not know that model came in a V8. I said I have a tune and headers also. I asked what he had and he said just stock. I figured 332 hp. So I had him by 2 extra cylinders and about 90 HP. I should have stolen his girl but I did ask if she had any friends and to tell en I drive a Mercedes!

Nissan made a 350z which was replaced by 370z, which would be comparable to SLK 350 in performance i think.

Cool

Well Jeff you should be able to take on most of the 'rice rockets' and kick their arse but the GTR....ahhh not so much; I don't think so anyway, but it would certainly be an interesting dual.

I certainly enjoyed my time with my 350Z before I changed to MB having been with Nissan for many years. Here is an old pic

Jeff, if you're looking to take a GTR on, I suggest you have your car converted to four-wheel-drive with nitro and a turbocharger to have a chance!

a 370zx is pretty solid

you should change the title though, i thought there was some lower 270zx model (which I'd never heard of) that you were picking on

I thought Jeff meant an older 270z too!
As for taking on the Godzilla GTR good luck Jeff don't race for pinks BUT hell yes the 55 is capable as heck... stick a Weistec supercharger on it and Godzilla would really struggle.

I wonder how the 55 would fare against the STOCK gtr though...

He would need four-wheel-drive to get all the power to the ground! There is a reason Godzilla is all-wheel-drive.

370z

Jeff,

You are a hoot. I think we would be friends if you lived closer to KY. I like the part where you asked his gal if she had any friends, .

I once raced a 580hp modded C6 Z/06 Vette in my lightly modded C32AMG. It was at a Charity Armdrop drag event over a 1/8mi. I knew the C32 was quick off the line but no match for the Vette on top, so I paid close attention and jumped him off the start. While he was spinning, I was going. It took him about 3/4 of the strip to catch me and he only won by 1.5 car lengths. Afterwards, the owner of the vette was asking me what I had under the hood. Reply? Uh, it is a 3.2 liter V6. You should have seen the look on the guy's face.
