I just bought two sets of NOS 510 Fender Mirrors, I don't even have a Datsun.

 

Oh and I bought two Hakosuka C10 'Skyline' fender emblems. I'll never own a car to put those on.

 

Lol wise investments

I actually took a picture of it yesterday. I had my camera, saw an interesting perspective, and snapped it. 

Since I last updated, the car has gotten giant 14'' brakes, new 200tw Nexen tires, and a variety of other wild bullshit that I really didn't need to spend money on, but did anyways like a Eurospec rear fog light.

For shits and giggles, our Time Attack 370Z circa this morning still in Global Time Attack trim. We took first place in Street RWD class at Road Atlanta Saturday in this monster. It makes about 560whp and still has a lot left in it.

In Topic: 2003-2004 Infiniti M45 - Anyone?

They're okay cars. They had a VK45DE (V8) hence the M45. It's a first gen Y34 chassis, similar to the G35 but lacking the aftermarket support.

 

The Y34 chassis was only made from 07/02-12/04 so its short production run makes it an oddity. Their maintenance cost isn't too terrible, but that's assuming it doesn't need a ton of work right off the bat. (Lets be honest, a high mileage infiniti thats over a decade old is probably going to be clapped out unless you spend a fair amount on a nice car)

 

You'll honestly probably be happier in the long run with a G35. Great aftermarket support, easy to find, fun to drive, etc.
