It's a shame you have to dirty up something like that with license plates.

I don't think it looks to bad from behind with the plate. The front plate might ride in the glovebox

I don't think you get away with that in this state.

It's got a miniature back seat suitable for people under five feet tall, groceries, or the dogs.

It's got a HUGE trunk. Big enough to put a bike in (three or four large suitcases). Or all the groceries from a COSTCO trip.

Yes. Just remember it's a "Datsun" that makes 520 hp AT THE WHEELS! :yikes: hee hee

It's the 370z's bigger, badder brother.

It's a 2009. We found while on vacation. DH has been looking at them for 6-8 months and one fell in our laps (in my favorite color -btw - the only car I think looks kick-butt in white).

If the compression/leakdown tests and oil and tranny fluid analysis goes well I'm heading back west for a road trip. Hubby is out of PTO on the 25th of July, so I need to find a co-pilot or do another solo. In 2003 I brought our Subaru from east to west via New Orleans, Phoenix, Southern CA to Oreregon. I think I would just take the GT-R east on 84 'til I hit the Atlantic, then take a right

Was not "hubby" the one who ran one of you're vehicles out of oil?

I would not let him even sit in it.

Well, we all make mistakes. even I accept my part in that debacle.

And honestly, so long as he sticks to the two clauses of our pre-nup (no motorcycles and no other women) and doesn't spend us into the poorhouse, I don't mind the car collecting.

Truthfully, I LOVE it. :whee:

You have to include "no other women" in a pre-nup these days?
