'70 Datsun 240Z (bulletproof, only put into shop
once for worn out clutch; sold at 225K miles,
just as transmission mounts were beginning to
'72 Datsun 240Z (current "spare" car; also dead
reliable, 211K miles on the odometer)

Both of these stock Z's could beat my '02 for outright grip, but the ride is terrible! More power, but harder to get into a slide, and when the back end goes, it's harder to control than in the '02. Definitely better brakes than a stock '02, and slightly better steering feel. In my '70 (with the higher compression motor), I got passed by a lowered, white '02 coming down Highway 9 above Saratoga. He got me on the OUTSIDE of a corner.
