It might be a little different in the hard tops, but I hated the soft top I drove. Don't know if they changed it for the 370, but personally, I'll stick with the older models, aka 96 and below. If you're under like 5'5" the 350 would be fine..
The 370 has more power, better looks (looks more like the origional) and more interior room. It is also wider and has a better tranny. Even the auto 370's are sick with the computer they have. It shifts faster then any human could ever do and with the manual, it aids you in shifting RPM matching.

Battle, the soft top 350 looks like a dildo. It is also a chick car. That's why you couldn't fit your head in it hahaha.

I'm not disagreeing with you, I don't even like the 350 hard tops. IMO they should've kept with the styling of the 300ZX twin turbo, those cars were sex. Especially with the Stillen front bumper.. *drool*

I'm probably going to pick up a used 350z and make it a project car. The new 370s are nice, but I still love the styling of the 350.

The 350z is ugly IMO. You'd have to set it up with a whole new body kit, lights and a lip spoiler for me to even look at it. They made it look like a Audi.

The nice thing is that now that the 370's are out, the 50's are way cheaper. I've seen so many more on the road these days.

YEAH! Ken Gushi! I couldn't remember haha.





Dude is amazing.

I was going to learn to drift in this:








But then my uncle sold it. Hopefully I can get it back from the guy he sold it to. The 1987 Mitsubishi Starion TSi is not only rare, it's a legendary rally car. I love the wide body, wide tires, 5 speed and RWD of this car. Drove it once and fell in love.

That's because the old TSi Mitsubishi's were amazing. I'd take a Starion TSi, DSM TSi or 3000GT over most cars today.
