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 […]
One of the continuously mysterious parts of Z ownership, for me anyway, was the almost complete absence of 350Zs from the streets of Manhattan. 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 […]
It’s been just a year since I cashed in my 350Z for a G coupe, a year since I abandoned the “350Z Forum” site and brought my allegiance and insight over to NICO, a year since my cute little granddaughter landed on the planet. A year ago, I was paying around $2.40.9 for the high […]
I’ve had my ’05 G Coupe for about six months now. I traded an ’03 350Z for it, and I think that I have gained enough perspective into G ownership that I can have, and make, some valid comparisons with my Z. I drove the Z cross-country and up and down the Atlantic coast and […]
Since the price of a tank of Premium has gotten so absurd, I have curtailed a lot of plans for memorable Road Trips and have opted to sit at home and guzzle Beck’s beneath my Tiki, enjoying the fine Florida weather. The G Coupe, itching for a ride, gathers dust in the garage, its slumber […]
