Arrow First car

This is my first post on this forums but i was wondering and hoping to gather opinions on a first car. Im 16 and extremely into the car scene (my friend influenced me away from trucks when i drove his manual r32 gtr). Im trying to stay under 10 grand and get a car that i can work on and have fun with. Ive always loved mk4 gti's, g35's, etc. Im seeing listings on craigslist for 03 manual 350z's for like 6000 absolutely beautiful but i always hear mixed opinions on these cars. Any suggestions or ideas for a first car would be appreciated.

Nissan Z33s are a sophisticated and quick RWD sportscars. Depending on where you live, they are not good all-season cars and will require some work to keep them running well. What kind of mechanical skills do you have? Do you own tools and have an indoor location to perform work?

Don't rush it, keep your eyes open. My 06 cost me 6k, manual with 58k miles, injen cai, borla exhaust, rims. If I could do it over again I'd get a 07 or newer. Nissan worked out most of the issues with them by that year. It's a fun car but it's easy to get carried away, raced a 14 sti a couple days ago 😏
