As many cars as I’ve owned previously, my wife has had this one for 10 years now, and I still to this day just love the entire look and feel of it. Modifying this car and taking it to events is a passion we share together and a way to express ourselves. We look forward to hanging onto this one and eventually handing it down to our son and having him share the same passion as us.

Do you have anymore plans for this car? If so, what?: plan to 3.6 vr6 swap the car and turbo it. Also to go a lil more custom on interior and trunk setup.
If you could change anything on your car, what would it be, and why?: Wheels. Feel wheels are the easiest way to completely change the look of a car and I love constant change.
Previously owned cars?: Way too many to list. Running on over 40+ cars from Honda’s, Nissan’s, Audi’s, Ford’s, bikes, the list just goes on.
What car would you like to buy next?: Would love to find a clean Z32 300 ZX.
Even though this car has been thru many phases and looks, I’m not one to leave alone. I look to constantly progress and change. The wife doesn’t always agree but we work together on it, sharing ideas and opinions and it always seems to work out. Just build something you like for you and if others like, it then right on, and if not we’ll it’s yours.
