Default So I finally just said screw it......

After driving economy cars and pickup trucks all my life I finally just said screw it I'm buying my dream car. I've been admiring Nissans 350/370 Zs for a long time. Screw it I'm getting something bad *** for myself for once. I got a 2009 370Z Touring model in silver. This car is in great condition and rides great. I love it!

Everywhere I go I see people doing double takes at my car and saying to me what a beautiful I had. My wife had a 70 year old lady walk up to her and told her that that was one of the nicest cars she has seen. I'm not used to this kind of attention coming from driving a 2002 Kia Spectra, its really funny.

I got my first speeding ticket ever by the Georgia state patrol doing 88mph in a 65mph zone. State trooper said to me "you know you were going 88mph in a 65 zone?" My answer...." yep....I sure was." I wanted to get the speed up faster and really push it but maybe not in the state of Georgia, theres staties everywhere!

Congratz!!! I said screw it 2 weekends ago and got rid of my G35 coupe. Shed a few tears, but that was dried up with a simple mash on the Z's throttle.

Looks like I'll be doing the same as you shortly. Good to hear that a simple mash of the Z's pedal will get me past my G Coupe.

Welcome, and congrats on your speeding ticket.
Stay safe, and stay out of those strip joints on University Drive.
