I love the 350z, I would chose it over the 370z anytime. Have fun with it!

its not totally stock, the suspension has been done and the last owner up graded to brembo brakes. think this was a track edition model. just put in a 05 6cd stacker stereo yesterday.

All that technology Mike, you'll have a hard time stepping back in the 'Model T' Datsun 510 :-)

Like the colour, though!

That's really nice Mike!

You and I share the same platform under the body work. I love that engine, so tractable and it does love to rev.

Make sure any slop is taken out of the clutch and brake pedals, under the dash, that will just make things feel better. The brake caliper"sliders"...make sure they are well lubed, been an issue for Nissan...they do not like our winters.

If the transmission shifts good..great..if a bit notchy when cold....go to that Delco transmission fluid.

Have fun!

Good....I finally got some of my issue sorted on the brakes. I wish I had the Brembo master...on the car. I have one but it turned out it was clocked wrong so could not use it.

Yes, it is hard to keep it down, these cars are happiest on the highway for sure, I did test top speed once..and yes...it did get there.

Looking forward to my drive to California hopefully in October, going down I-5 and back the Coast highway.

Got new Yokohama v105's for mine.
