Default The Z is getting old.

16 years ago today, I brought my Z home from the dealership. I am including a few pictures of my car through the years.

Glad those track wheels are you last and not somewhere in the middle. Def one of the best wheels for the z imo

Congrats on keeping your Z in such great shape. Although I was one of the first pre-order customers in the country, I had to wait until October to have my redline track model delivered. Best car in my life!

That's a long time with a car. I'm 32 and I have owned some 15 cars. Never kept anything longer than 2 years but this will change with the Z. Going on 3 years now and I hope to keep my Z for that long and beyond.

I like all your wheels selections. I like changing the car's look, but subtle changes are my goal. Wheels are the best way to do this. I've owned my 350z for 16 years as well.

How often do you drive that car?


The Z33 was my daily driver until a few years ago.

I drive it whenever I feel like it. When I bought the Z, I planned on it being my daily driver, and it was for about 3 months. We inherited a pick up truck from my father in law and i used that as my daily driver for the next several years. The Z was just used for fun. Then I got rid of the pickup and bought a Mazda Miata. The Miata now became my daily driver and I drove it until I retired. After retirement, I sold the Miata so now have the Z and a Dodge Grand Caravan.

Bought her in 11 with 46k on the clock. Shes currently at about 120k
I love to see someone appreciating the platform and taking great car of it! Mine has taken care of me through the years and was my daily u til about a year ago. Unfortunately, she has a few scars from 2 hit and run incidents, but will eventually be done when I have the funds to repaint her.

Beautiful, and well cared for... very nice. Similar situation for me... just rolled over 35k miles and the car is not my daily driver and it gets stored about 6-7 months per year due to weather.

Here is my thread on my pre-ordered 350Z Touring, with a few upgrades: https://my350z.com/forum/2003-2009-n...pic-heavy.html

My '03 redline track model arrived on Christmas Eve 2002. I've loved this car like no other, but I reluctantly have to put it up for sale soon because I now have a back injury and the seats are no longer comfortable. It's been the best car in my life too.

Getting in and out of the Z deff not the easiest... By chance are you selling the stock rays separately? I wouldn't mind getting my hands on another set.


Those g35 rays look almost as good as the V1s... Did you use the same 15mm spacers?

I currently have a set of Nismo rims on the car. If I can find a buyer who wants that setup, then I'll sell the stock rays separately. You'd have to pick them up though. I'm about 2 hrs north of Manchester.

That would be a long road trip I live on the CT line. I don't think im that motivated, I would like another set because I wanna run all fronts on my juke, and keep the 4 rears for the Z. The stock wheels are looking more and more like they are going to get new tires and call it a day though.

What do you daily drive?

The infiniti cars have some much more comfortable seats, also I think the factory touring seats are a little more comfortable than the standard seats. It's getting harder to find them in good condition but might be something to look into if you wanted to keep the Z around a little longer...

You might deserve a nice new Q60 though

With all the flashy trends that have come and gone over the years, I like that you've kept it tastefully modified, and fairly stock looking. Like the saying goes "there's beauty in simplicity."
