Those of you who follow my threads closely already know that I bought a Nissan 350Z last night. In summary, I opted for the extend 72 month/100,000 mile Gold warranty and I wound up with a higher intrest rate than I should have gotten. According to my dad I got taken and wound up paying more than I should have.

Well, I took it out today on the freeway a little way outside of town and opened her up a little bit. All I can say is that this car is FUN! Besides, my bank is offering re-fi's on car loans at a better rate than I got through the dealership. I've always driven conservative, reserved cars. I'm not giving this one up for a while.

Oh and I held on to my Lincoln too. This is just gonna be a once-in-a-while car. I'm also shooting for no tickets. One thing that I've noticed already is the multitude of jackasses in Firebirds and Mustangs that want to race. That ain't gonna happen.

You only live once....keep it and drive the crap out of it.

It's only money and you can always make more.

Re-fi through your bank like I did on Mrs gorilla's Exploder. Knocked 2.5 percent off with good credit.

350Z is niiiiice, just ask Paul.

I'd take a 350Z, Subaru STi, or Mitsu. Evolution any day. mmm.. fun.

The 4.0 VQ engine and 6 speed manual in my Xterra is a *BLAST*. I wouldn't want to drag with your Z but since I got it through break-in (had it 17 days and about 5,100 miles so far ) it hauls ass for a 4k+ pound vehicle.

Nissan is building some *seriously* nice cars.

Run the hell out of yours and enjoy!

PS. My last one was a 1997 Plymouth Voyager so I can relate your move from "conservative".

Just wait until you get your insurance premium bill.

Sweet, those are nice cars. I'm a bit partial to my RX-7 though. Now that you have a speedy car it's time to train yourself to drive it properly, and have a blast at the same time. NASA (not .gov) does really good high-speed driving schools on racetracks. Here's a link to the NASA Texas page:
