If you’re reading this blog, you probably have an interest in automobiles. Maybe you’re interested in the history of the automotive industry, or maybe you’re in the market for a new car or truck and are wondering which will give you the most for your money. Whatever you’re looking for, I hope you will get some enjoyment out of reading my posts and that you will learn something new.
You may be wondering why I am taking the time to blog about Nissan vehicles. Let me tell you! As far back as I can remember, I have been interested in cars. It didn’t matter if they were classic cars or new cars, sporty cars or even trucks. If it had four wheels and a motor, I was interested. As cars have evolved over the decades of my life, my fascination with them has only increased. As a young man, I frequented an automobile museum in Detroit, dreaming of one day starting my own automobile collection. Over the course of my life, I have worked hard to make that dream come true.
After saving up enough money, I purchased my first car at the age of 17. I learned to maintain it myself, in my family’s one-car garage, with my own two hands. Since then, I have gradually expanded my collection. I now own six classic Datsons and Nissans, all of which I bought and restored myself, and I plan to continue to build my collection. I may be getting older, but I can still roll underneath my car to replace a radiator. In fact, I like to think that I’ve gotten better and more skilled with age.
People often ask me what my favorite car is. That’s a great question. As I’m partial to Nissan cars, I would have to say that my favorite styles are those within the Z series, and my favorite of those are the special Z31 releases. In 1984, the 300ZX was released in a special silver and black color scheme. This 50th anniversary special edition of the car is turbocharged and has a mirrored t-top. The body style is representative of the era of its release—a long front end and a boxy, low-profile chassis. It looks very sporty. At first glance, some might compare its appearance to that of the DeLorean in the Back to the Future films, but it’s really quite different. Because it was a special edition, very few of these cars were sold.I hope to own one of these models some day in the future.
In my 20s, I began working at a national automobile museum in Detroit, maintaining the automobiles on display. I continued working there until I retired. Now, my only job is to maintain my own private collection and to teach my grandson everything I know about cars.
I started this blog so that I could share my knowledge with others who are interested in cars. Most of my posts will be specifically about Nissans because I have been working with them for most of my life. I hope that you enjoy what you read!
