Nick Schultz: 2009 Nissan 370Z

Nick Schultz's wife owned a Z car before he did, and once he drove it he became an instant fan of the Z platforms. When he picked up his 2009 Nissan 370Z, his intentions were to modifiy it into something that was just as ready for the track as it is for shows. WIth a bunch of custom work, and some elbow grease, Schultz has accomplished his goal.
