Josh Gonzales had been a fan of the 350Z platform for a long time growing up. He knew it was a car he wanted to own one day. He picked up the car after finishing basic training, but once the Rocket Bunny kit came out, he got serious about the build. "I've owned it since I've finished basic training," he says, "but I really started getting serious about the build when Rocket Bunny first released information that they would be making a kit for my car."
