My mileage has slowed right down. Averaging around 3,000 miles a year in my Zed, rather than 30,000 (which I did for the first couple of years)! On c. 166,000 miles at the moment.

I remember the car when I had my 350z it was legendary for the Miles.  It gave us all hope we could keep it going.  Its done well though.  I remember a thread you did at some point which listed all the costs to that date.  The car was / is a legend.

I did set out to drive to Africa (Morocco) this year in the Zed. Unfortunately, a replacement starter motor I had had fitted a couple of days before I left packed up at the Eurotunnel Folkestone car park. I had to go back and get alternative transport. It would have probably been the only Zed to have been to three continents (excluding country of manufacture).

Good god 10 years has just flown by and have had some great times in the Z and the GTR

I originally joined this and the previous 350zukownersclub forum having bought the Z as a stop gap until the new Supra would be launched - Still waiting for that...

Will dig out some early photos of the Z ( thanks again to paul s for saving my hard drive)

Woohoo! :bounce:

 

I first got this little beauty toward the end of 2005: 

 

gallery_245_77_165014.jpg

 

I'd never modded a car before, but it wasn't long before I got a set of Rays alloys (below the car is stickered up for the BritBallRun):

 

gallery_245_77_422.jpg

 

I won a photo comp with my knob photo:

 

gallery_245_77_44530.jpg

 

Then I finally got a set of gorgeous LMGT4's:

 

gallery_245_77_46955.jpg

 

Then in Nov 2008 Nissan kindly showed the club a pre-production version of the new 370Z:

 

 

That was the day I changed from "I'm never selling my lovely 350Z" to "I've got to have one of those!".  And this happened:

 

gallery_245_77_357944.jpg

 

The Honey Monster has changed a lot from when I first picked it up.  Modding is addictive!

 

So, a big thank you to everyone in the club.  It's like a family after all these years.  Thanks to all those who contribute and give their time to help run it :thankyou:

Oh wow.  Love the Sunset 350z I never realised you had one.  Then there is the film Star which is the Honey Monster.  Thanks for all you do Paul.  Keeping everything running in the backgroud, the fact everyone can get on pretty much all the time - is down in no small part to you.

My 10 years have been with 3 different cars. 

 

My much loved Azure 350z GT - Which I owned from 2005 to 2011

 

gallery_123_61_13613.jpg

gallery_123_61_12828.jpg

 

2011 - I moved to BMW for about 3 years.  With a Twin Turbo 123d Coupe.  Every Toy you could think of.  Literally seemend someone clicked the entire accessories list

 

med_gallery_123_431_4580540.jpg

 

Then in 2013 I was surfing the Nissan Site and Autotrader looking at Zeds - I found my Baby on the Nissan Site under a seperate tab - Its one of less than 100 in the UK

- Nissan 370z Nismo V1 # 229.  Collected in March 2014. 

my favourite car I have ever owned.

Yes, it was a brave move - my first sportscar, RWD vehicle, and car with 'a colour' - all in one go!

 

I was just looking at some of my old signature pics and avatars, here are some I found (possibly not in the correct order):
