My Z addiction continues with this 09 370z. It all started with a junker 79 280zx in 2010.  This car was featured in the Z of the Month for September 2012
4 years in and I restored one and got this black beauty.

Wasn't planning on getting it this soon in life but, two months working at Empire Nissan in Ontario this came into our Certified Pre-Owned side. I figured for the price plus my discount I couldn't let it go especially having a longer warranty than our new vehicles and not paying the full pop. A lot of people asked me "why automatic?" Well, considering I had to drive to Long Beach and those areas very often to finish my deals since I work in sales, the traffic was going to be a pain in the butt since its my daily driver so I made an exception. That 7speed transmission with paddle shifters? Well why not. If I ever have a craving for a clutch I'll just get my other one out ;)  

I don't have much done to it only a full cat back exhaust system, K&N air filters Giovanna Black Series wheels with Falcon Azenis Z rated tires, 245/35ZR20 in the front & 285/30ZR20 in the rear.

Drilled & Slotted rotors with performance pads.  

Two 12in performance tech 2000wat woofers on a custom sealed box powered by a 1100watt performance tech amp, with a legacy equalizer and a power aqustik capacitor.

Carbon fiber wrap on the hood, roof & spoiler.

I'll start building it up more when my warranty is up, got long ways to go before 100k :) Also, the story behind the purple stickers, my brother passed from Lymphoma, so that's my support and feelings towards Cancer.

Not bad I would say for a daily and out of the 4 cars I have. And my addiction won't stop until I get the other 4 Z's I'm missing.

That's it for now folks.

Thanks for looking!
