“Hey, I couldn’t find the “add rust” option on the configuration page. Could you ask the rep about that?”

I owned three 370Zs all convertibles (two red, one black) and my friends owned a 240Z and a 300ZX so I feel that I am informed/educated enough to discuss the new 400Z. To my eye it looks like a mashup of the 300ZX and the 370Z more than the iconic 240Z. The 240Z was longer and lower and the interior is completely Read more

T-tops would be epic but probably aren’t going to happen, I’d settle for some sort of glass panorama roof like the F-Type. The original Z was a poor man’s E-Type, they should be gunning for making this a poor man’s F-Type. A manual option would be a great way to distinguish the new Z from the Supra.

Just did a short road trip to southern Utah. Things are fucked, so many places had people staring at us with our masks on like we were the weirdos

I’ve driven cross country about a dozen times and have only used cruise control (minimally) one of those times. Though I might be a weirdo because I generally hate cruise control. To be fair, 6 of those trips were in a manual 95 tacoma which most definitely did not have cruise control.

There’s nothing in this world I love more than a good cross country road trip. Once this rona is over, I’m flying out to California to buy the first cool car the pops up on Craigslist and driving that sucker 1500 miles home.

That’s a nice collection of cassette tapes there. Pretty diverse music genres. Good listening.  Except for the Madonna tape.

I’ve got one of these, which takes a little more to install as it needs to be wired in and plugged inline with the radio antenna feed, but the sound quality is outstanding (and your cassette deck pulley belts can have disintegrated over 30 years without impeding its function. It also adds discrete hands-free calling.

If you have an auto-reversing tape deck in your car, these things need to be modified. Generally the top review on Amazon for whichever came-from-the-same-factory-but-with-different-brand-names unit you buy will have pictorial instructions for how to do this. You just unscrew the casing and remove one wheel, and then Read more
