New daily driver
#1
I sold the Golf to a buddy who needed an inexpensive but dependable car. It had 316,000 miles on it. Kind of sad to see it go.

Was interested in a Crown Vic or variant but the wife said she wouldn't drive it & I should get a smaller car. Started searching for a rear wheel drive and found/bought this G35. I've had good luck with Nissans in the past...couldn't kill one I had back in college despite my very harsh attitude toward it. Got it for a good deal from the dealership a buddy sells cars at. It's very quick for a 6 cylinder and is a good size for my 1200 mile monthly commutes. Whatcha think?

2 friends of mine have G's and they like them. You should use one of your Machs for a daily driver...Big Grin

Nice car Don! The G35 is a sporty car with lots of luxury that'll run for ever if taken care of. Great choice!

Congrats Don, I like the G35's. It is basically a 350z which is a very good platform.

I thought about that but I put a LOT of miles on the daily driver...sometimes 4,000 per month but usually it's 1,800 to 2,000. I'd hate to wear out a Cleveland engine with junk miles from boring Interstate travel. Maybe I should drop a 302 in one of them and have at it. Wink

You only know of part of what I did to you yesterday. {Insert evil laugh here}

Me too. I first saw the car and for kicks I looked under it at the dealership and saw a rear axle. At first I thought it was an AWD version so I opened the hood and saw the engine was mounted the way it really should be mounted. After some research when I got home it turns out that most of the Infinity and Lexus car models are true RWD. I never knew.

And you let her? Friends don't let friends buy new chebbys.

I hope so. The luxury is nice and comfortable and it is quite sporty.

So I've learned. I didn't realize I was getting a 4 door Z...didn't even know such a car existed. Many of the Z performance parts are a direct swap for those who want to spice it up. But my spice dollars are all allocated for Mach 1s. Wink

The red is a bonus. Maybe that's why I looked at it in the first place. That makes 5 red cars at my house with 4 in the driveway. I've already bought 2 car covers to tone it down but it's a lot of red when the covers are off. Big Grin
