The Story

I bought this car as my first enthusiast level vehicle after being brought up in a car centric family. I’ve owned it for four years now and it has taught me essentially everything I know about the car scene, what I like and dislike in cars, and what I enjoy doing. I’m now a mechanic by trade and owe my inspiration to work on cars to this Z. I bought my Z in 2019, just before the big price bubble on Japanese cars and all cars in general so I was able to find a beautiful 1 owner example with just 54k miles for a great price. Flash forward to now there is almost zero resemblance of the silver stock Z it used to be but I’ve put a lot of effort into keeping it a clean example 350z that is becoming all too uncommon.
