Default Picked up a new toy the other day.

Just got me a 93 ZX NA 2+2. She was in such good condition I couldn't resist. I just always loved the looks of these things. It was resprayed about a year ago and the leather was in fantastic condition. I didn't buy it with power/speed in mind, just wanted to switch it up a bit and enjoy the T-tops for a month or 2. Any other fans of the Z32's out there? Any bits of advice on things to keep an eye on mechanically?






P.S. Step one is to get rid of that poor fitting ricer Greddy front bumper.

I agree about the exhaust. I would have preferred the stock dual tips.

I had a 1991 NA 2+2 for a year when I was 18

Then I had a 1996 TT for four years in college

cool cars, engines are bulletproof in my experience.

btw I had that front bumper on my TT for a little while. fiberglass right? get rid of it, you will break it.

Great car, As you say, Not in it for the Power and Speed, especially NA 2+2. But they do have a nice style.

That one looks very clean. Agreed the bumper doesn't seem to fit well, But it looks like a clean design.

Good luck working on it. z32 have some of the tightest engine bays Ive ever seen.

I was thinking to myself as I bought it, "Pat, use your head you fool, you won't be able to drive this in a month."

I've always liked those cars but never bought one because they just seem so big. I should drive one sometime...

I truly did not comprehend how cramped it was until I saw it in person. It's ridiculous how little space there is. I found myself wondering where they put the turbos in the TT.

They are very low to the ground and you drive in a very reclined position. It takes a little getting used to. But overall not to bad. Cooler then a camaro

OK thanks.

Funny story:
I was really interessted on buying a TT and went with my bro to look at one that this guy was selling.He was living in a lost place in mountain.
This was the most scarymoment of my life !
I explain: The guy took us on a test drive on the alps tiny roads. Weather condition: rain.Tyres condition : worned out (no profile at all). Guy was doing 125mph (not lying I was checking the speedo.) to show us how it handle better than the Porsche carrera on wet curves while his little girl was jumping on the back seat with no seatbelt screaming: faster dady faster !
This was absolutely crazy ! When we finally stopped back at his house we could hear the pschhhht of the air going out of the totally worned out tire !
