Hey guys, I've gone over some very nice and interesting members gallery and I figured that I might as well start one. I wanted another Z after an 18 wheeler truck sent me spinning across 4 lanes by exit 13 on I695 in Baltimore, totaling the old 300ZX in the process. I wanted a pearl white nismo and zeroed in on one in CT; flew in the day the dealer posted the car online

You may want to re-think tinting your front headlights bro, doing so will eventually crack your headlights
