I grew up with a love for cars, but no one in my family really shared my passion. So I taught myself via trial and MANY errors how to work on cars by modifying and eventually blowing up the engine in my 97 Maxima. By the time I bought my Z in January of 2003, I had a pretty good handle on wrenching and had built up quite a collection of tools. Over the past 6 years, I have learned more than I could have imagined, and built and eventually tuned my car myself along the way. I didn't make any of the mistakes with the Z that I made with the Maxima and I'm very happy with the "nearly" finished product. Back in the summer of 2004 I ran into Jon (I know) on the street in his 98 TA, my car was basically stock save a few bolt-ons, and he put a smackdown on me. I think that's the last time he actually beat me. :) Anyway, I stopped and chatted with him and got his cell number and slowly started hanging out with the SR guys over the next couple years. It's been a great time and I'm finally an official member.
