    There is no way you can put those two cars in the same category. A vette will demolish the nissan twins. You'll be surprised, people come up with strange comparisons when its to their advantage. I'm sure its a marketing strategy. If sales were everything, then the Toyota Camry is the number one car in america hands down. Thats what they claim. But not all will agree, because some people prefer ride quality over "cushiness." Just like someone going for a corvette over the nissan twins prefers performance over the cheaper cost. The moral of the story is a Vette will eat the Z or the G for lunch....how could you even begin to compare.
    Thanks for backing me up. I didn't want to state it so blatently, but yeh, that's what I was getting at

    Just wanted to update this thread to reflect my changes
    Ive scrapped the fiberglass enclosure idea because its lack of metal shielding caused extreme FM radio interference. Ive replaced it with a custom aluminum case housed next to the stock amp in the rear tire well. By moving the computer to this location and shielding it with metal, my radio reception is back. Plus, I get all my trunk space back. Drawback is I cant show it off

    no it wouldnt be a skyline in japan. Its the same as the nissan 350z. And i thought Nissan was the parent company of Infinity. Like Toyota is for Lexus.

    First of all if you look at how cars are compared these are probably in the same class. Its kinda weird how its figured. The gap in the base msrp in lower end cars is a lot smaller. But when cars start approaching upper 30's and 40's the gaps are much bigger. Like a 100,000 dollar car and a 200,000 dollar car are in the same category as well. It didnt make sense to me at all until i started selling cars and someone explained it to me. Yeah the 350z and Corvette are in the same category. SHouldnt be at all though. But with toyota and mazda dropping out the the sport coupe race they dont have much else to compare it too. IT really should be compared to a mercedes SLK a BMW z-3 or Z-4 and a lexus 430(?) but these are considered luxuray cars where as the 350 isnt. I dont even know if the corvette is or not. Never checked on that. And youre right the vette will demolish the 350 in straight line or oval track racing. But when it comes to hard sharp cornering the vette does seem to fall behind. Ive driven the **** out of my bosses vette where i sold cars at but ive only ridden in a 350 and thats been my experience thus far. But we could go on about this forever

    sorry bout the last post didnt see anyone cleared that up yet

    The 350Z in Japan is called the Fairlady Z
