    These are all indeed some wonderful cars. Shame they all suffered the same fate of low sales and high price tags... You can get them now for pretty cheap and they all still look incredibly good and timeless.

    So why not dedicate a thread to these 4 "halo cars?" This thread should particularly interest you if you actually have one of these cars ;)

    So I'll start us off with some pics:

    Ah, the good ol' stretch of years when Japanese manufacturers fought each other on the market with sports cars. Now they're fighting with econoboxes :hs:

    considering the GTO isn't a DSM, and neither is the stealth.. you shouldn't have a problem..

    I gotta say if it wasn't for the 300ZX, I wouldn't have the car I have now.
    So hats off to the 300ZX for making the 350Z possible :)

    FC3S is the chassis code for the 1986-1992 RX7
