After a little over a year of G35 ownership I figured I should put out a buyer’s guide to spread the word on these awesome and underrated cars that many enthusiasts disregard because of their current image.
The previous owner’s trunk harness repair finally gave up the ghost so now I have to use the manual trunklid release cable until I have time to re-loom the trunklid. Not a huge deal, just slightly annoying. Ahh well, just Nissan things.
Car #1: 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham. Canada-only factory 305 car. Slicktop, Burgundy on Burgundy. There’s no way in hell it would have passed a BC inspection so I gave it away to fellow Opponaut TheVancen when I moved to BC. Over 3 years later and he’s still got it.
Set up my new abode, did some stuff to the G35, bought a sticker cutter, dug my original Xbox out of storage and started a new semester of college. How’s Oppo doing?
Do we have a new Save of the Year contender or what?
The new $uicideboy$ track is really good. I should pre-order the new album on cassette.
UPDATE: SaabStutz got the price right. $1995 Canadian on the dot ($1526 USD at time of writing)
That’s actually a pretty sweet S14.5.
Bikes, a Corgi, a Cutlass lowrider, an AE86, skateboarding and BMX, beautiful cinematography and a pretty powerful song.
Kicked things off yesterday by driving the camera car while a dude with a cool Lexus shot some rollers of my friend’s Mark 2 Jetta.
Also, a brief update. A 6-speed G35 is probably the best everyday car $5000 Canadian will buy. It’s quick, reasonably nimble, spacious, reasonably comfortable, has a banging stereo and is quite reliable. Gas mileage is also great for a V6 so long as the RPMs are kept mostly below 2k. My sedan is running great but it…
Totally worth $6
Now I really see why journalism as a profession runs on these things. Also, $uicideboy$ because $crim started making beats in GarageBand.
I didn’t take many photos, but some of them actually turned out half-decent. These are all uncorrected and unedited so some of them are still a little funky.
Congrats on the M5, Tapas!
Political, I guess
What is going on with the proportions and why is the rear end so busy?
