Default Twenty-Three with a Z

Hi guys!

I just wanted a place to put pictures of the Z and share any updates, mods, road trips, anything.

Quick introduction:

My name is Nathan I'm 23 years old and I'm currently pursuing a master's degree in mechanical engineering. I graduated with my bachelor's in 2019 from Syracuse University, and with a hefty graduation present from my family (I was lucky to have wealthy grandparents, may they rest in peace), I was able to afford a new Z! I bought a 300zx in high school-- sapphire blue that thing was gorgeous . So this is my second Z.

The car:
2013 Nissan 370z Brilliant Silver with manual trans. 45k miles.
Mostly stock. I put nismo v2 rays on it and wrapped the roof. Previous owner painted the fangs and added a J2 axle back exhaust. I plan on getting my swift springs and FI cat back hopefully soon .


I wanted to start this thread out with a tasteful little mod I did to the interior: I always hated the look of this big ugly cubby in the middle of the center console. So, I removed it and 3D printed some Z logos to fill the holes which were left over. One for the 370, one in memory of the 300 .

Welcome to the forum.

Enjoy the ride.

Good luck with you master's degree. Just don't become book smart and common sense dumb. Once on the job, you will learn about stuff that you was never taught or seen in a book. Get yourself a good mentor. I have 2 degrees. Welding and Mechanical.

Nice! Two sweet degrees to have.

I'm actually working at a small manual transmission design/manufacturing firm as a draftsman. It's small enough that I get a lot of one-on-one time with the CEO/chief engineer. He's a great mentor! Can't wait to see what the future brings.
