The breath of The Dragon envelopes you, and you understand, as you pass back into clarity, that you’ve just had a golden moment, a driving experience that will never leave you. The Dragon does that. It always does that.
One of my very first prehistoric memories was the piercing sound of those rorty engines wafting across the corn fields and subdivisions of West Indy,their mechanical wailing drifting into my bedroom and sparking a curious awe that has never left me.
Since there is no Infiniti dealer within driving range, I take my car to the local Nissan dealer for service. Despite having traded off my 350Z nearly a year ago, I still get their “Nissan” mailings and the offer of a $19.95 oil change from them was irresistible, so down I went for a few […]
The “low fuel” light on the gas gauge in the dash of my G Coupe began blinking, a sight as rare as chicken lips. I pulled into a nearby Kangaroo, pumped in 17 plus gallons and, chit, I just spent $71.00 to fill the tank!!!Never in my existence have I spent that much for a […]
One of the reasons I chose to live in the little nowhere town of Ocala is its distance from the Atlantic or the Gulf. After living in coastal Ft Myers and low-lying Tampa for over 30 years without a significant storm affecting me, I decided that my string was about played out and the Law […]

You can see all kinds of exotic cars in the endless streams of traffic that NY coughs up–Rollers, Peugeot, Russian stuff with DPL tags, classics, etc. but seeing a Z is […]
I’d had enough. A couple weeks ago I was bored silly from just sitting around watching cobwebs form on my Infiniti. My computer had gotten infected and had become useless, and I was re-reading books I read in college. The only thing on TV was the markets crashing, and I was REALLY bored with that. […]
I recently traded my ’03 Z for an ’05 Infiniti G Coupe. On sunny Sundays, me and the Z would travel around on the back roads nearby, seeking adventure and enjoying the ride. It’s no different with the G.For the entire time I had my LeMans Sunset Z, there were only three or five others […]
You may ask yourself–“How the hell does this relate to Nissans???” Actually, it doesn’t, since at the time that the following took place, there were probably no Americans who had a clue what “Nissan”–or “Japanese car”– even meant! Still, it is but one step on a long journey that led to my garage being perpetually […]
