Looks nice, swapped from a V6 to another (at least this one turns the right pair of wheels ;) )
anything changed on it or standard? Any plans for it?

Lovely looking example =D>

I always dreamed of getting a 350z but the lack of rear seats,when the kids were younger,ruled it out #-o

Looks like somebody has upgraded the exhaust :D

Bet that V6 howls when you give it some revs 8)
