    Itís a little like driving a 1950s car in the 1970s.... not so different as that, but 20 years old still makes a difference.

    I would say only that, driving a new Z8 now, vs 2000, is that today, cars have evolved, and the Z8 will feel ďoldĒ. Not that that is a bad thing..... just different than the experience in 2000.
