Well got the Z back on Saturday, all cleaned up and oil changed and everything that it needed from maintenance.

Dealership repaired the damage that was done when the car was last in to have the brake fluid changed. Capital Nissan, simply does all the right things in keeping me happy.

Next up on my list is having to get the roof re-sprayed, got bird pooped on it and it itched into the roof, not at all happy about Nissan paint for the Z, nor the dealership I bought it from, who didn't not tell me why I should but the environment protection. (Jeff Schmitt Nissan, in Dayton OH)

So I have to just have to figure out how to protect it.

on the other hand, I rented a Buick Lacrosse to drive to and from Ft. Bragg this week. Not a bad car, no handling at all, got 29.5 mpg, and regular gas. Makes me realize that the Z gas mileage is not bad at all.

I have not driven the Z since my last post, simply parked, trying so the mileage catches up with where the months are. Over last weekend my GF and I drove up to helen, ga in her Honda Element, some very nice curved roads, would have been great to have the Z there. Must take it up there in the future.

well sure glad, I did not decided to drive the Z to Dayton, getting up to 10 inches of snow today. Watch a BMW M3, walk sideways trying to get up a hill in front of me. Just all nasty, glad for my little Ford Festival rental....

Been some time since the holiday, and a bit proud of myself, it's been 18 months since I have bought my Z, and now the miles = what nissan says for that time period 22,500.

Have not had any mechanical problems with the car during the 1st 18 months, I am averaging about 25 mpg and have spent 3,075 dollars on gas...

Still glad that I bought the car, and enjoy it when I can....

long time no update, life is busy and at times hard.
but the Zed is closing on 40000 miles, which means it gets driven...
still get lots of comments on it..

Note: at 38000 and driving it about 600 miles in the past week, average about 29 mpg, which surprised me... it feels and runs great

Maintenance is via the Nissan gold service plan, so all maintenance is done by nissan, I have not modified the car much a little by my notes

just some small notes

interesting trip back to ft. bragg today,
lot's of 350Z and G35 and some G37, but no 370z
when I do drive the car, still gets a lots of comments.

Interesting note:
the enterprise branch that I rent at, got a 2015 370Z to rent out..
haven't seen it yet or got a chance to see if I can get a free upgrade to it...

Autocross today, first time in 3 1/2 months, times around 50.5, they were consistency.
Pro Class drive BSP, did a 47.?? not that far off. If I could learn to break a bit less I thing I can pick up a second or too.

I was running ASP, why tires are way too big for STR, 305x30 in the rear, 265X30 upfront, they sure to look good.
