    Will the Z35 be your first Z? / Are you a Nissan Virgin?

    Well, to be fair, in 24 hour races there are 2 or 3 drivers per car. But the ones that impress me most are F1 drivers. Possible commentary on F1TV: "He had a lousy qualifying lap and wound up in third place, 0.010 second behind pole position." Not to mention the way the F1 cars are built, so...

    Will the Z35 be your first Z? / Are you a Nissan Virgin?

    Whenever I felt stressed, I went SCUBA diving worldwide, or went to see some of my favorite bands play. Lots of those at RevZafod on YouTube, including two porn videos. One starring ladybugs on an eggplant leaf and the other with worms thirty feet down..

    49219 miles. Two trips to the east coast in 2008 and 2012 for HS and college 50th reunions; a few to the Texas coast to visit snowbird cousins; and several trips to Austin to COTA for the first three USGP's there; otherwise mostly local trips. Want to ride along from the windshield GoPro in...

    Should I trade down/up?

    Report on Nissan offer: Walked in with the letter, filled out a questionnaire, got a $10 Target gift card, and spoke to the sales manager. Long story short, he said they couldn't do any deal now because they didn't have any official info on the 400Z. I have his card, and I said I'd...

    You can quote me on this. At the Z Club of Texas meeting last Thursday night, Mad Mike Taylor announced that it would be from ZCON in Colorado Springs.

    Will the Z35 be your first Z? / Are you a Nissan Virgin?

    I lost my z-virginity on 26 January 1972 when I got one of the first 50 thousand Datsun 240Z's ever made; #49788. Bought a used 83 Nissan pickup in 1988. Bought a new 4wd Nissan King Cab SE pickup in 1997, and sold the 83 pickup soon after. Got the first GT-R from my local dealer on 29 August...

    Should I trade down/up?

    Yeah, but in the long run, I might not profit from it. Hey, I'm 80! I still enjoy being a block ahead of other lanes before I hit the speed limit if I'm in the front of my lane, but mostly I drive the GT-R to the grocery store. I'm thinking something new might be fun, even if I lose 6 to7...

    Should I trade down/up?

    Maint costs, mostly lube and tires. Fluid change every 18k miles about $13-1400 at JoTech in Garland TX, much higher at dealer. New tires ever 9-14k miles, about $1400-1800. Depends on how sticky you want them. First three sets in 27k miles with Bridgestones [2] and one Dunlop, the higher...

    Should I trade down/up?

    Asking for advice, but I'll decide on Saturday. In the mail today I got an offer from the same local dealer to buy back my first-delivered [29 August 2008] Nissan GT-R, one day only on Saturday 17 July 2021, for $60,950 regardless of condition (!), which is about $18,000 more than a recent...

    What cars do you currently own?

    I currently own a 2009 GT-R [delivered 29 Aug 08], and a 1997 Nissan 4WD SE pickup. The only other cars I've owned since January 1972 are a 1972 Datsun 240Z and a 1983 Nissan pickup, bought used in 1988.

    Anyone Else Think New Z is Going to Pull A C8?

    Bought my 1972 Datsun 240Z in 1971 with a $300US deposit, got it in Jan 72. Bought my 2009 Nissan GT-R in March 2008 with a $5000 deposit, and paid ONLY $15,000 over list price of $71,900, but got the first one from my local dealer on 29 August 2008, and it was STILL a great deal. Two of the...

    2022 400Z Pricing Talk

    Whether to trade my 29 August 2008 bought GT-R in for a 400Z, now that I'm 80? Decisions, decisions. I could maybe go for a 1:1 price trade...

    Anyone Else Think New Z is Going to Pull A C8?

    I love my first-delivered from local dealer GT-R on 29 August 2008, but if the price is right [ aka trade-in covers it], I might be tempted. After all, I'm 80 now, and don't need a top speed of 193 anymore. I might accept a bit slower 400Z for my grocery runs. Maybe. Of course, it would...

    2022 400Z Pricing Talk

    I have a 2009 GT-R delivered 29 August 2008, first from my local dealer, probably worth about $50,000 today. I'm 80, and maybe I could trade in my GT-R for a loaded 400Z? Close enuf for government work, and then I could re-join the Dallas Z Club of Texas as a full voting member rather than an...
