    Well i'm relatively bored right now and maybe someone will enjoy looking at this thread LOL
    Will probably end up being for my own enjoyment so don't fall asleep


    first nissan was a 1998 GXE 5spd. This was when I was getting into the maxima game (heh) anyway It was wrecked by an old lady in a mustang, so happy times. No performance mods but had tint, big sound system, rims, suspension, misc.

    Next came my short owned 97SE. Green with beige interior. This car was a good bit faster than the first one, with 2.5inch ypipe and exhaust as well as adjustable suspension and other misc mods, still a nice sound system though
    Sold to purchase 2k2 for a good price

    Then came the 2k2, 6spd black on black: The current car.

    then my camera got stolen/lost/misplaced something heh.
    But had a lot of front end chipping / someone backed into it in a parking lot and didn't leave any info so I am in need of a respray on the front as it doesn't look too pretty But these are the more current pics.

    Finally on to the datsun fleet. My first 280z which I sold due to money constraints (which I always have, heh) as it needed help with the motor that I never was able to solve with the time I had.
    It did have an RB20det though with supporting mods, just didnt run correctly , ever as well as needing body repairs and paint = $$$

    and then the car currently in the shop for paint and rust/body repair the current 280z

    well thanks for stopping by. Let me know any ideas you have for the current Z car or the maxima (besides paint) and one day I will upgrade the sound system and do some deadening but right now that's definitely on the back burner... in the works for the Z is a turbo kit (i already have most of the parts, just not most of the money)


    Will post pics of the Z when it's painted and fixed up, due by late this month

    The new wheels on the maxima look infinitely better, and the Z is lookin' sexah! I saw one yesterday and it had a V8 in it...which V8 I have no clue but my guess would be an LS series just because that's swapped into everything these days...

    depends on what you call fast, but the maxima is pretty quick for what it is. High 13 sec 1/4 mile with a handful of mods

    Nice. Always liked the maxima, wish they did something else with the back lights though. new wheels might be lighter or better but the black wheels looked better imo.

    :werd:

    I ran a 14.3 @ 99 my first run at the track. Not the fastest thing ever, but definitely doesn't leave you saying "this thing is slow"

    I don't really dig maxima's just because of what they are, but I really do like black cars with a tint and black dished alloy rims like you had originally. That look is sick
