Have a choice of getting a 300ce or nissan 300zx non turbo tomorrow. Which one?

Both are in good condition, run great and are equal in miles at 140k

1990 non turbo 300zx is azure blue and 1989 300ce is black.

which do you guys think I should get?

The Mercedes has room for four..five? The Nissan room for two, unless it's a 2 + 2. Is passenger(s) accommodation important to you? Both cars look nice. I'm a long time "z" owner (currently have a '96 twin turbo..with some add'l mods) and became an ardent fan of Mercedes with purchase of CPO 2011 E350 coupe. I believe your pictured options show the Z to be visually superior.

Thank you. The seller of the 300ce is offering a lower price.

Will make my decision in the next few hours.

Something about a Z with a slushbox bothers me, but looks decent overall...

Slushbox ? Is that meant to be an insult? Sorry, but I don't understand.

Slushbox is the colloquial term for an automatic transmission. Apology accepted.

Also, the car in the first picture is not the same as the one in the last one. What's up with that?

Picture(s) show different wheels. Newest pic shows larger, after market, diameter rims than earlier pictured stock rims.

I took the bigger wheels off and put the stocks on. It handles better
