The Story

Back in September 2022 I had bought my first car, a 2000 Honda Civic Hatch. Fast forward to January 2023, it get's stolen sometime in the night, it get's found the next day but is no longer drivable and ends up getting scrapped. When I told my grandfather about the car being stolen, he felt so bad for me because he knew how much I had wanted and loved that car and all the little things I did to it, he offers to buy me a new car. I was given a spend limit and I could not decide what I wanted between these 3 cars, a BRZ, a Nissan Laurel, or the 350z. I had test driven a few BRZ and FRS, but they didn't compare to the feeling I got driving the Z, so I knew what I had to go with. We went to a little luxury car dealership in downtown of where I live and bought the Z they had (because it had the lowest mileage compared to most others). This car is my daily driver now and the gas is less than desirable but honestly that doesn't matter to me because this car brings me so much fun and joy to my everyday life and I cannot wait to get into actually getting some mods on this thing!
