As I've posted before, I've had a 2 seater sport cars since 1979. Since 1975, I've had 11 Mopars, all from 63 to 69. I still have 4 of them at various stages of restoration (66 Valiant convertible, 66 Sport Fury 440, 68 Dodge Charger 383, and 68 Barracuda 360). My last sports car was the 2009 Nissan 370Z. A fun car as long as it was not snowing but it had the clutch slave cylinder problem Nissan wouldn't fix. They just changed the DOT, flushed and bled the line, and it worked for a couple more months (leak somewhere). The clutch went to the floor and left me stranded, towing it, and borrowing cars 3 times in 6 months. The warranty then expired. It costs $1300 to $1500 to fix because the plastic clutch slave cylinder is located inside the bell housing. So, the car ran great but was a ticking time bomb. I got sick of being stranded and waiting for this to happen a 4th time maybe out of state and I don't have that kind of money. So, I traded it on the 2010 black R/T 345 cubic inch hemi (yeah, I'm old school) loaded with 19K miles. Looks great, runs great. Got to get used to an automatic tranny and a car that does not quiet corner like the Z. But it is fun and so I have joined the club.
