That's one way to look at it.

Really sad that it got wrecked.

I saw/approved a FS thread today for a nicely modded FI Z. I couldn't believe the asking price. I seriously considered seeing if I could get a car loan really quickly so I could go save it. lol

Haha. That cover I bought from you is still on it! Hopefully the paint is still in good shape.

I can't...
Please let this be a reminder to everyone to NEVER ask/tell me to STFU when I whine: "Driver's School FIRST!"

Good lawd, what a waste.

This week in Marketplace ad: "TE37 reps for sale, lightly rashed but guy at shop says they can be fixed."

Do you have a thread or site showing your work? I'm interested in checking it out. Especially the 3.8L conversion.

Driver's school first!

I completely agree. Too many people get into the Z thinking they know how to drive a performance car.

I've not found the Z to be terribly difficult to drive tbh. I was worried the lighter weight and extra power would get me in trouble, but I find it pretty easy to control. I want to stick my dick in the diff though, it's so much fun!

Crap- I wish you didn't share your sexual fantasies with the rest of us...THAT really illustrates how far this site (and thread) have declined.

I still have high expectations when I click on subscribed threads or even hit the new post button.

I encourage others to join on the regular, because with more people come more ideas...new norms, more DIY threads and feedback to new products, unorthodox modding, and as always NEWBS...noobs and bewbs every now and then

Love it here, never leaving...

Lemme tell you what kind of friends I have.... Couple of them were checking out my Niz for the first time and they're sitting there on the busy street doing EXACTLY that - complete with faux race car sounds and all.

I walked away shaking my head.

Oh, and the guy doing it just turned 52. Yep, immaturity is NOT a function of age.
