Michael Novak: 2004 Nissan 350Z

Michael Novak went the distance to acquire his 2004 Nissan 350Z convertible. When he found a black 350Z with only 12,000 miles on it up in New Jersey, he flew up there to pick up the car as soon as he could. He knew right away that he was building a show car, inside and out, so he got to work. "I like speed, power, and beauty," he says. Good combination.
