Pick of the Day: 1992 Nissan 300ZX 2+2

Room for you and your '90s crew


The Pick of the Day is a 1992 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 listed by an Atlanta, Georgia dealership on

The “good old days” can be any time in history. It all depends on who you ask. To some, the good old days were when people dressed up to travel by airplane. For others, they were the 1980s, when you could talk on a party line with your friends about the newest Bon Jovi record. Then there are those who long for the 1990s, when the Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, Mitsubishi 3000GT, and the Nissan 300ZX were new cars.  

Sure, right now you can go out and get a GR Supra (with BMW power) or a Z, but the segment isn’t what it used to be. Aside from the MX-5 Miata, Mazda doesn’t offer a performance car, especially one with twin-turbo rotary power. And Mitsubishi is a crossover- and econobox-only manufacturer these days. 

Luckily, there are still plenty of ‘90s Japanese performance cars in good condition out there. Over the past 32 years, this 1992 Nissan 300ZX has covered only 91,033 miles and managed to keep its CARFAX report clean. Speaking of clean, that document indicates this Cherry Red Pearl four-seater received paint protection as well as protective coatings on the glass and wheels in 2023.   

Going back even further in the CARFAX shows that this Z has received several updates since 2009. The 222-horsepower VG30DE 3.0-liter V6 benefited from a fuel injection system flush in in 2015, new valve cover gaskets in 2017, and timing belt and starter replacements in 2019. The fluid for the four-speed automatic transmission was drained and refilled the following year.

New front brake pads and resurfaced rotors in 2019 and an air conditioning recharge in 2020 should provide comfort (in more ways than one) to anyone who ends up riding in the charcoal cloth interior.  

Aside from those necessary changes, it seems this Z32 300ZX has remained unmodified. It doesn’t have a wild body kit, a pavement-scraping suspension drop, oversized aftermarket wheels, or an obnoxious exhaust setup. The only thing that appears to have been added after new is the Clarion AM/FM/CD head unit, but that’s OK. Just make sure that if you pay the $17,000 it takes to become the next owner of this car that you store the T-tops under the glass rear hatch, pop in your favorite ‘90s CD (my suggestion: anything from Ben Folds Five), and go for a drive with your three closest friends.

  1. Questions: Not impressed with “Cloth” interior, Leather is nicer,..Next Why would the air conditioner system need “Recharge”? the only time an air conditioner system needs a :Recharge” , is if it’s leaking freon. You can’t just put a “Bandage” on an air system, you need to totally go through the entire system, just ask any real mechanic. Next the brake pads and discs were refurbished? How about the calipers, that’s what a total brake system needs done, while your refurbishing the pads etc…Maybe $6,500 on a good day! Oh yah, this car is being sold from a “Car-Lot”? That answers all the questions…
