Using a sports car to tow is a fail. Not only are the transmissions not designed to tow, the engines and frames aren't either. He is merely putting his sports car into an early grave. His prerogative of course, but a fail nonetheless.

as always, just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD.

I think if a focus a tow a trailer, a 350z shouldn't have a problem.

Yeah, because the stress of big, high performance tires on a car is nothing, right? I mean, they make race car frames out of compressed drier lint, don't they?

Sigh. The Z has no frame. It, like just about every car made today is a unibody.

I kind of like it. I've never seen a fully convertible Civic before. I don't know about the wacky paint on the hood but other than that I think it's pretty cool.
