    Default August 2009 Car of the Month - p0tential

    Sorry, its a little late this month







    ChicagoZ.com :What got you hooked to the 350Z that you ended up purchasing it?

    p0tential :I've been through a few cars and actually wasn't even looking at the Z when it was time for me to purchase a new vehicle. I've been through some rocky roads with my cars starting with a SRT-4, a WRX wagon with a STi swap, and my car before the Z which was an EM1 Civic Si. My EM1 was stolen and money was really tight for me, I actually started looking at the 95-97 Miata because I wanted a track car that was cheap. I'm not sure how I even ended up looking at Z's but one day I was lurking through auto trader and I found a deal that I couldn't refuse. It took almost 2 months for the deal to actually happen and since then I couldn't be happier. I love the fact that its only a 2 seater (I don't have to drive anyone everywhere). I love that its RWD, FWD sucks. The performance of the car is just far superior than any other car I've owned.

    ChicagoZ.com :What action does your 350Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or daily driver...

    p0tential :Currently the car is still my DD. I'm in the process of searching for another car to use for winter and as a DD. I plan on tracking the car but that will more likely be next season when I have some more free time and cash.

    ChicagoZ.com :Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph, whp/wtorq, track times...

    p0tential :I unfortunatly have not had the opportunity to have the car dyno'd, tuned, or ran on the track. That will happen soon!

    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....

    p0tential :My next mod is going to be sway bars. The big one I'm saving for is the supercharger. I'd like to pick up a Vortec stage 2 charger and get some reliable power outta the car. I also have some carbon fiber fabric that I will be wrapping the interior with.
