I'm by no means a "car guy." Other than change my own oil, I have very little knowledge about the interworkings and such of cars . But my first car was a 1990 240sx and it was definitely a beater, but I loved that fucking car. For the last 4 years I have been driving a 00' Camry LE and although its great economically, its massively boring. Anyway, the Camry has about 85k miles on it now, and needs all new shocks/struts and some other work. Considering the car is only worth about $3500, I'm debating on if I even want to bother... though I could definitely drive the car another 85k miles without many problems. I'm thinking about buying a new car, and the 350z has always been on my mind, considering i can get an 05-06' for around 16-18k... it may actually be feasible to do so for my budget. Considering I want something sporty again after owning a camry, is it a poor choice vs. other options in that or slightly lower price range? I refuse to buy American... probably a bit slanted, but when I think American, I think unreliable.
