I'm in the process of buying a car to replace the GTO. I finally decided the car for me is the 2005 Nissan 35th anniversary 350z. I poked around the Internet and found a few good candidates on AutoTrader. I was very interested in buying one that had a Vortech supercharger bolted onto it but, realized that I don't know enough about all the performance parts to get everything tuned properly. So, I decided that I'll reserve learning such things when I get my 240z rebuilt.

Eventually, I decided on a low mileage 350z out of Kentucky. I negotiated the price and submitted a cash reservation on Monday. However, due to slow responses from both Chase (my lender) and Bachman Auto Group (a specific sales person) the deal is still not done. My intent was to buy a ticket for my Sister to fly up there and drive the car back either yesterday morning, or today. Now that can't happen until tomorrow morning (at the earliest). It may not even happen until Monday based on how long it's taking the underwriters to approve the loan. Needless to say, buying a new car has not been a pleasant experience.

Last week I talked with Lux Blue at Crushproof to see when he'll have room in the garage to do the body work on the Datsun. Based on his current workload, it should be out of my garage by the end of April. I may have a tear down party at the end of next month.

I think GTOs have a curse against them. A guy from HP came in town from Austin and he got broadsided at 1960/249 intersection. Car was totaled.
