Kyle McGuckin: 2004 Nissan 350Z

Kyle McGuckin wanted to build a RWD car that wasn't often modified. He noticed that a lot of people had modified the Nissan 350Z, but the convertible version of the platform was rarely used. So he took it upon himself to modify a 2004 Nissan 350Z Touring Edition. Driving a convertible was a childhood dream that he managed to check off at the same time.
