Well, depends on insurance company actually. My policy covers $9k worth of my mods with no premium. I just itemized out the big ticket items like wheels, BBK, exhaust, coilovers, headers, transmission, etc and showed receipts to my agent and poof, I have an extra line on my policy that reads “Optional Coverage -…
Good for you! That’s something I really like about the Z culture, is that it is more mature than many others like muscle car owners for example. Since there are many older guys who were into the older Z’s, the average age skews up compared to many other sports car brands. And as a result, you’ll see more Z’s at…
I’m your inverse :) early 30's dad and fell in love with the 350 when I was in high school. Saved up and bought one - used with 50k miles - about 8 years ago. I’m keeping it to pass on to my son, and now lust for a 240 to restomod with him some day!
My only prayer these days is that Nissan doesn’t completely crap the…
Sorry but no, if you read the article and the tweets embedded within it, you would have noticed that Musk never says the word automotive or refers in any way to rating a specific type of media, automotive or other. It’s a rating site for journalists, full stop. You’re just objectively wrong on this one.
This looks way better than both the Civic and the BMW’s above you for the simple reason that you painted the B pillar. Makes it look much more like an OEM ute than a hacksaw job. Well done, and I like the Type-S wheels as well!
I’m talking about this specific car - a 2013 Nismo with 50k miles and a blower. That is radically different than a higher milage, early model, base trim 370, which is further radically different from a 350.
I meant cheap in the $ sense. This is not an inexpensive car. Even without the blower, this is a 20k+ car with those miles. Whether it is being sold by a dealer or private party doesn’t really apply to the conversation.
You must live in an affluent area if 22-25 year olds can afford 5 year old cars with 50k miles and an expensive aftermarket blower with what looks like a very good if not professional install. That’s not a cheap car.
The nice thing about the modern Z cars is that as their popularity waned and more kids got their hands on them, there are fewer and fewer around. I’ve seen a grand total of three 350Z’s in the last two years, whereas 7-8 years ago when I was in the local auto scene you would see them nearly daily.
Interestingly enough, the Z crowd is pretty diverse. A low-mileage supercharged Z34 could just as easily be a dad in the 35-45 range. Not many bros out of college could afford this car with such low miles, much less the supercharger kit and installation/tune.
This article is about Musk tweeting about a new idea for a media-rating social site. That has nothing to do with cars.
He should skip it because it has nothing to do with cars. A ratemyjouranlist.com site is not automotive news.
I like Cav blue on the FJ with the white top, but it looks a bit off against black. Which cars have a lot of.
But where is the article about the Anthony-Mary meet cute? We got one for these two, for some god-forsaken reason.
I think there’s a whole bunch of false choice fallacy being put out here, as another guy said in reply to a comment here. There are other options besides “live in constant fear of the unavoidable” and “enjoy something no matter how risky it is”. I choose a middle ground of “enjoy risky things but mitigate the risk…
This is why I interpreted a commenter saying “why do people give Musk a hard time” as “why do people hate Musk” this morning. This place has an incredibly unhealthy obsession with the dude and tries to tear him down for the pettiest of things... and this article-type substance is by far their new low.
And who is Maria…
Oh gosh, Miami Blue is incredible. If I ever repaint my Z down the road, here’s my short list:
* Jaguar French Racing Blue
Where I’m from, we call this “gunmetal”. There are varying shades of gunmetal, but it’s basically a darkish metallic grey. Nice color to be sure, but nothing worth writing home about.
I know those were his exact words (hard on them), but you and I both know that there’s quite a lot of vitrol being spewed in Elon’s direction here, both from the bloggers and the commenters. The hate is so thinly veiled that even editors had to step in to stop their underlings from typing it out so blatantly.
