As the years come and go, this car still has my heart…it still feels good counting the years of owning the best sports car out there. I’ve enjoyed every moment of owning my car. Each time it was towed, each ticket I had to take off the windshield, and every time I had to explain to a cop why I was speeding (24). I really do love cars in general, but I feel that the Z car is a sports car with a soul for the ever dropping price it’s alive every time you drive her. The exhaust note alone can put me to sleep or get up my heart rate up. If I had more money to spend she’d be faster, but too me she is fast enough. 158mph is relaxing in the Nismo, with your eye close you won’t know the different between that and the speed limit…far reach but you get the point. It’s not even about the speed or going fast, It’s the feeling you get from driving a Z car in a spirited manner. A Nismo Z makes it even better…it’s a well put together feeling I really can’t put it in words…so here’s a shiet load of pictures to try an express that feeling of awe…

I’ve just finished re installing my LTH for the second time. It was easier in the sense I knew what I was doing. it was harder knowing I had to do it. Me…myself and no one else. What made it worse was the long periods of time in between the DIY job. little things got lost in translation…”which bolt goes where” maybe it’s my lack of OCD? Either way through it all turning it on after a three month pause was relieving and heart racing at the same time.

for those starting to read this for the first time…if you have the time and tools and a little know how…research the job, youtube the videos, ask the local carclub members and take a swing at it! it’s the most rewarding feeling!

Anyways…

Hours after purchasing her, and rolling her off the showroom floor at Advantage Nissan Bremerton, Washington for $45,499.00…

Early in the morning parking far away from folks…

Attention! of course she gets it…this is the parking complex on base bremerton naval ship yard and this is the sixth and final floor before open parking….

Why must you park next to me…literally noone is next to that green car, and a mercedes coupe was next to the mustang in the morning…an unspoken rule of one car space between sportscars on an EMPTY floor…

Two 350s that’s all I have to say…A friends ride back in bumville Bremerton…

I took her to Canada to bring in 2008 no pictures of the crazy times I had up there, but I did race a 355 and had the cops stop me and chase him…

Before my tour on the John C. Stennis was over I got a DUI :icon27:…nothing happen to me it was eight days after I returned from a deployment (8 months)…I had a friend ship her home to georgia for me…nerve racking transition…

First day taking a look at her after restriction and a short deplyment to Cali…

my dad had a blast driving her, and replacing two rear tires for me…due to getting nails in them from the inductrial parking lot at his job. After a couple months in fayetteville I got orders to Hawaii. Shipping…always nerve racking.

Hawaii outside my work space…

inside my work space…:icon17:

the atention I don’t mind…co-workers

Hawaiian’s can’t drive…FACT

Doing too much, and fcuking up….one corner on this island I had fun sliding around…finally got me…Metcalf street Honolulu…DO NOT ATEMPT

local 350z club Bodyshop out here hooked me up…painted the wheels and sideskirts…

I did the drop myself…Stance GR + PRO w/SSD’s
High enough to kiss the top of speed bumps…

something like a photoshoot!

My girlfriend

got more stuff just gots to go to work:mad:

How to finish this, what can sum this up and leave you with some kind of closure?

Fight?

Remembrance ?

Memories?

Continuance … I’ll go with that. I currently reside in a hotel room of the Navy Lodge San Diego…the details so that you understand my frame of mind! I’m defeated by this thing we call life. I’ve been blessed with health and family and the means to provide but the day to day is always a struggle it leaves one to question why is life so hard ?

Those answer I do not have and will not even attempt to answer!

The story is over , the car has been sold to a local Hawaii garage “AP garage” you might of heard of them as they are huge in Japan!

So where does that leave me…

Without a car lol, I have plans to resurge myself into the Nissan game! The plan is another nismo , the universe allows I should be in a Red Nismo shortly .

All of this is trivial , what to name her ?
