Louis Sierra recalls the 2008 Nissan 350Z coming to the market when he was still a college student back in 2003. At the time, he was driving a Toyota Tacoma but knew he’d one day make the switch. “I made it my goal to own a 350Z one day and build it to my liking,” he writes. That goal was accomplished in 2008, and since then, the relationship has grown through the hours spent on modifications.

“To me, the 350Z is a special Z car,” he concludes. “It was the return of the Z after it had been absent for several years. I love the lines and the total look and feel of the car.”
