New Track Toy, need Opinions from my RX8 Brethern

Well, after much hemming and hawing, I was content to just mod my old mustang and wait on the STi, till I saw this.



It is the new Nismo 350Z. Watch the quick vid, but for quick specs, SEAM-WELDED Chassis from the factory, built by their racing division, just a tick of the Elise through the cones, stock, and the motor is bullet-proof. Man, I stopped, was looking at the car, and the sales guy begged me to drive it, as no one had been allowed (I am friends with the owner). So, I took it out to top off the tank, and just fell in love. The car is SO solid, and handles like it is on rails, even stock. I would hate to see this thing at the race track with some grippier R compounds. I am sure it may be as quick as my Evo was, well, maybe not , it is down 40whp, but still it would be a great car to build up. Not to mention, they are only making 1500 of them.

Am I crazy? Is this a car a 34year old should own? (Note Vid Below)

I think it's great. Nimble, solid, reliable, fun to drive. What else would you like? I think it's a wonderful car. I just want to make sure I get a ride.

Neat car, not a Nissan fan but this one might do the trick. Stop talking about it and pull the trigger on something. I thought my girlfriend took forever to make a decision at dinner but Geeez Dave, you got her beat!
