Hey Everyone!

A few weeks ago I rented an incredibly dull Ford Fusion and drove 469 boring miles to pick up a Certified Pre-Owned 2016 370Z Sport Tech in Black Cherry, with only 7700 miles on the clock. The drive up, as tedious as it was, was totally worth it because the drive back in the Z was nothing short of fantastic! I'm thrilled with the Z thus far, although to be honest I've barely driven her since I got her home. It's just been too cold and/or snowy so she's just sitting in the garage for now. Owning a Z is significant to me because my Dad had a gold 280Z when I was a young boy, and it was, without a doubt, the genesis of my love for sports cars. I've wanted a Z since before my feet could reach the pedals, but the time was never right until now. I had actually had scoped out a 2016 Nismo and was ready to make the purchase, until I found out that my insurance would be an extra $2k a year over the Sport Tech, which was completely insane to me. Nevertheless, I'm super happy with my new Z!

I'm sure you all have seen a million pictures of stock Z's, so I'll only post one.



I'm coming from a 2008 Hyundai Tiburon GT, which was a great car to own and drive for the last eight years, even if was way down on power. I have a lot of great memories in this car and I told myself I wouldn't get rid of it until it made financial sense to do so, but at this point it needs a new clutch, new coilovers, new wheels/tires, and an alignment. I just wasn't prepared to throw that much money into a car with 99k miles on the odometer, so I bought the Z. I'm holding onto the Tiburon for my son though. He's going to put the time/money into it and it'll be his car, so at least I'm keeping it in the family.





I will definitely be modding the Z at some point and to be honest it's hard not to start right away, but I think I'm just going to drive her stock for as long as I can because I know once I start, I won't be able to stop. Anyway, I'm loving the new Z and I'm glad to be here! I'll definitely be spending tons of time reading threads and soaking up as much info as I can!

What part of Maryland are you in? Driving down to ZDayZ? If you have never heard of it, do a google search. Welcome to the Z family!

Hey 2SIC, thanks for the welcome! I'd lived in MoCo for my entire life (in fact when I saw your avatar pic I instantly recognized where it was taken. )...up until 6 months ago when I moved to Urbana up in Frederick County. I still get down to MoCo all the time though since most of my friends and family are still there. As for ZDayZ, I stumbled across a thread about that a week ago and it looks like so much fun. I doubt I'll go this year since the fiancÚ and I are in serious wedding planning mode, but I'll definitely be there next year!

Quick question since you're local to me....are there any Z meets in our area? I've looked around a little bit but haven't been able to find anything yet.

Nope, don't think anyone here tires of seeing pix of Z-cars. :-)
Beautiful ride. Congratulations, and welcome!

Nice Tibi, too. Interesting how many differing backgrounds brought us all to this car.

Enjoy yours!

Welcome to the forum, I'm new to the Z and have received a ton of great info. I'm also in Maryland Annapolis area, I'm going to be trying to put together a meetup at AAM Competition ( they do/ sell turbos, etc. for z/ gtr/infiniti), I had tt installed by them a few months ago. They are located near Laurel. I've already spoke with them and their onboard to accomodate a group..plenty of parking plus shop tour etc. I'll post more info as a date draws near, thinking June.
