View Full Version : February 2008 Car of the Month - xLaroldx

02-26-2008, 07:45 AM
My apologies for the delay in this month's COTM folks! :sorry: :oops:

Ahem anyway, onto this months....


ChicagoZ.com :What got you hooked to the 350Z that you ended up purchasing it?
xLaroldx :In the beginning, I wasn’t really all that enamored with the 350Z. I was looking for a new fun car, but I didn’t want a four door, and there were no other AWD or RWD cars with a hatch that I could stomach. I wanted a hatch because I’m a big car stereo nerd. So, in the end I narrowed it down to the Z. Then, when I walked into the dealer to see my car I fell in love with it right away. Its been love at first sight every since. In the end, I’m really happy I chose this car over others due to its rich history and amazing enthusiast groups.

ChicagoZ.com :What action does your 350Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or daily driver...
xLaroldx :My car mostly see’s weekends and car shows. I’d love to start road racking it more, however.

ChicagoZ.com :Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph, whp/wtorq, track times...
xLaroldx :Nothing official, except my butt dyno tells me its fast and fun!

ChicagoZ.com :What other modifications are you planning on doing to the 350Z, if any? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....
xLaroldx :I have a whole list of mods in store right now! I am redoing my sub enclosure in the hatch, as well as sanding and painting my center console. The center console has my Metra kit molded in. I’m picking up a set of Sparco Torino’s this week. My doors are getting custom speaker pods molded in. I have some engine bling in the works, as well. Powdercoated APS Plenum and brackets, as well as a custom fit Carbon Fiber Engine cover for my APS Plenum. I have many more plans for the future, but this is whats on my plate right now. Oh, I almost forgot. I also have a Carbon Fiber Nismo V1 wing to throw on.
