Tell me about it. It's so fun to drive, though, that I don't pass up the opportunity to borrow my father-in-law's car when I visit. The Dodge Viper (original body style, at least) is similarly a tight squeeze, surprisingly.

Helps when you know how to move the seat in the Viper.

It was all the way back. It wasn't so much a depth of legroom issue as it was a width of him and kneeroom issue.

For some reason I have been looking at getting a 350z convertible, yes the coupe looks better, but there is somthing about a roadster that, to my mind at least, makes for a very magical driving experience.

If and it's a big "if" I go that way I'll have to get a winter car. Not that I can't drive rear wheel drive in the winter, I can, I just feel that the car deserves better than to be driven around our salty winter roads.

There is nothing practical about this decision, and it certainly isn't anything I "need", perhaps that why this idea is gathering momentum.

Well that and my other goal to replace my 60s/QS8s/VP150 and older than dirt EP350 with VaSSallo Series speakers that can match the M3s (Cherry/Chestnut/Semi-Gloss) that I picked up last month during my Axiom visit.

...any bets on them fitting into a Z?

One at a time with multiple trips to the Axiom factory. Definitely a win/win situation!

If I could afford it, here is my dream vehicle. I drove something similar quite a few years ago but as you'll see the price is a little much; and that's in American dollars \:\) . Pretty cool though!

I was very close to buying a 350z coupe a couple of years ago. From the several longish test drives, I can attest that it's a fun car. Definitely. The only reason it didn't happen is that the dealer and I couldn't agree on the price.

Hey, with the top down, you can always stack vertically! \:\)

Will it make it from one gas station to the next on an Alaskan road trip, though? ;\)
