    Default December 2011 Car of the Month - jay666's 370Z
























    1. What got you hooked to the 370Z that you ended up purchasing it?

    I previously owned a supercharged Scion TC and wanted to switch to a RWD, more powerful platform. Last summer I started hanging around the guys at PX and was swooned towards the Nissan family. I wanted to do something a bit different, so I thought the 370 was perfect for me. More power, new platform from the ground up, and not many people are heavily modifying them yet, mostly due to sticker price. I didn't care. It was perfect for me. I test drove one and made up my mind in a matter of seconds.

    2. What action does your 370Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or
    daily driver...

    Show car/weekend car. Plan or hope to track once in a while.

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

    No clue, other than stock specs. I have not tracked it, timed it or dyno'd it since owning. I have only had the car for about 9 months. The only thing I know for sure is the weight since I weighed it on the giant scale near PX LOL. 3180 lbs. Dyno this winter with build...

    4. What are your current modifications? Any
    future modifications/wishlist? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....

    This car hands down deserves COTM. I remember Larry searching for that blue bolt for about 1/2 an hour.

    TT this winter, nice!
