54 - The Z is a retirement gift to myself! The last roadster was a 70 MGB in the late 70's. I forgot how much fun a roadster and stick can be! It also helps living in Southwest FL.

I have had my 05 Roadster for a month and I HATE the clutch! It seems like it never catches in the same spot two shifts in a row. HOWEVER, the rest of the car more than make up for the bad clutch.
