^^Agreed. There doesn't seem to be a simple explanation/answer for anything they did with these cars!!I had the same question a while back. See this thread:
As you can imagine, it's not a simple answer.
Agreed totally, mine didn't have them either but my dealer gave them to me n/c, I think they sell for $75USD or some such, double back stick tape, I put them on in 5 minutes, to me it completes the car...that little Trident is a powerful statement.IMO it makes a nice side profile difference. It catches your eye, not as much as a Yellow Ferrari badge but in a slightly similar way. =)
for under 70$ total, nice DIY add
This sounds awesome. Care to share a pic?I liked the original pair the previous owner had added (standard chrome effect) but I used the dealer's paint (free) and sprayed them satin black that blends nicely on the black coupe. The badge still catches the eye but somehow the rear quarterpanel is eccentuated more than when the badges were "chrome".
Will do once I get a chance.This sounds awesome. Care to share a pic?
I should add I think it's all about how the roof and quarterpanel ties into the curved "hip" above the rear wheel arch whereas the Z was the entire roofline in general.I think the 3200/4200 shape is all about the roof line, just like the old Datsun z-cars (240z).
