Speed limits are a suggestion, and regardless of what's posted, you can be cited for exceeding the safe speed for the existing conditions.

It's been over 25 years since I've had an accident. Another car swept behind me changing lanes...a witness thought they had clipped me but I think it just stole my air. The cars license plate (not custom) had the word FLY on it...libations predate "40 ozs". I'm bummed because it was a beautiful car with only 57k on it...Just trying to keep it light. I don't give a rat's a$$ if you always drive the speed limit I'm pushing 50yo and did not choose a Z because I like taking it slow

Default Up to$725

Auction ends tomorrow, but it's up to more than it would be worth to me. Found out the car is just 5 min from my work. I can tell anyone specifics on it if you are looking for parts

Shoot if I get it for cheap I'll get another one

Strip the parts I need for mine and get my dad another car.

He's been bugging me to buy one from the site too. I'll keep an eye on it.

Might keep it in the my350 family after all OP


Anyone have shipping hook ups? Preferable TX to CA? Lol

top went up and down well, but cloth is not good. It was still running after the wreck and probably would have been drivable with air in the driver's side tires. Engine/trans are stock and in perfect condition, babied for 57k. Air bags did not deploy, but frame probably bent. Doors, trunk still operate normal. I got an Altima and already regret it

Story of the roadster life.

Just ditch the cloth and go hard top man.

I'm done chasing down cloth tops every so many years until they tear. Especially when you can buy a hard top for the same price as a soft now.

Just give up on tredding water and fix it for good.

Glad you didn't kill anyone. Do you do 75 in snow and ice too?

You know how you can tell OP is over the age of 30... Because he didnt post a picture of his car and ask if we thought someone could Paintless Dent repair it...

Sometimes **** happens, hopefully the altima grows on you... I still find the CVT in the juke super odd...
