Awesome! it'll be nice to have another 370 around! I think the next event planned is at the Greenwood Revival on June 8th.

Fort Dodge area here... See very few Z's here, 350 or 370.

Yeah, they are definitely few and far between out here. Be sure to check out the NICI boards. The groups really starting to grow. It's an awesome group of people.

Hello from Bettendorf. I bought my 2012 Roadster (Touring/sport and black) up in Wisconsin on June 21. I've put over 3000 miles on in since and toured the Allamakee County area a couple of times in in it. Trouble is, it's about time to put it away for the season. I've seen a few 370s but it seems that, in the Midwest, the Z is the most desired car that nobody buys. The local dealer had to put their 2013 inventory on sale by "Dutch auction" to get rid of them. I sure bought mine at a huge discount. Anyway, I love it. Wouldn't change a thing about it except maybe the visibility.

Glad you got a good deal! Yeah, you definitely have to learn how to properly set up your mirrors... Awesome that you're in the QC, I've got a bunch of friends that live over there.

Ya mine's been stored since about November. I'm just waiting on my turbo kit till I can get working in the garage again. This winter's been rough for letting out the car and stretching it's legs...

So I pulled the trigger on the NST pulley group buy this last month. Anyone had an aftermarket pulley installed in the state and have a recommended installer?

I'm not far from Dubuque! (SW corner of WI). My Z is not in storage for this winter haha. I only drive it when the roads are clear and I wash it down after every run. Pretty bad winter so far..so the car has been sitting . Long story..but I bought my 370z in the middle of January (which is why it's not in storage). The car was such a deal I had to trade my 350z in.
