2004 Nissan 350Z
My name is Chris Humphrey. I am 26 years old. My hometown is Hopedale, MA. Currently, I reside in Murfreesboro, TN. I work as an automotive technician for Hyundai Motor Company. In my spare time, usually, I am at the gym, fishing, spending time with friends and family, working on my car and helping out my friends work on their cars.
What or who got you into Cars?
Almost every kid grew up playing some sort of racing video game. Whether it be Need for Speed, Forza, Gran Turismo etc. We grew up with a passion for cars whether we knew it or not. Some of my friends were already into cars while we were in high school so I guess it was always around me. Eventually, I bought my car and all of us started going to local car meets together. Local meets turned into going to Import Alliance, Import Alliance turned into going to car shows. After some time, we started submitting our cars for these shows and after being accepted it turned into a habit to go to every show possible even if our cars weren't in them, making memories as a friend group.
Why this Car?
Honestly, it wasn't my intention to buy this car. At the time, I was driving a 1985 Toyota pickup. The truck did not have any A/C, had clear coat fade and rust holes. It definitely needed to have some maintenance done. I was about to start college and needed a reliable vehicle to get me back and forth the three hour round trip. I found the Z, went to go test drive it and immediately fell in love. Two owners, low miles, well taken care of. I was sold.
Why did you build this Car?
It wasn't my intention to even start a build. I found myself looking at car parts and doing research on forums, watching install videos and reading reviews on companies. Before I knew it, I had sunk a good amount of money into the car. It was never my goal to get to this point, but watching your own build start taking shape over time can become very addicting.
What does it feel like owning ad driving this Car?
I think many enthusiasts will agree when I say owning and driving your car can be a roller coaster of emotions. Most of the time it’s a great feeling, but you'll always have your ups and downs. It’s a wonderful feeling to drive a car you've modified with your own hands, a rolling piece of art that expresses the person you are. I love having people come up and ask about the car and the build process. That's a wonderful way to make connections and also create friendships. The best thing is seeing the kids at shows. You know you're doing something right when little kids widen their eyes and their faces light up and go "WOW LOOK!". That's what it’s about. Inspiring the younger generation to chase after their dreams by presenting something as solid proof that if you work hard enough and never give up, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.
Make it your own. Build your car to your standards, not the standards of others. Make it an expression of yourself. Don't build it to impress others or to receive their approval. it doesn't matter who likes it and who doesn't, as long as you're happy and satisfied with your own work, that's all that matters.
What do you think makes it Unique?
To me, it’s just a car. Just so happens I've done modifications to it. Deep down it’s just like every other car on the road. Regardless, I think the thing that stands out the most is probably the chassis mount wing. It’s pretty obnoxious hahaha.

Who did the work?
The majority of the work was done by me. Watching videos of other people doing the work has helped me tremendously in learning how to fix issues or install parts. My friends also lent a hand in fixing/installing parts. It wouldn't be where it’s at today without their help. You know who you are, you guys are the best friends anyone could ask for.
Possibly might do a widebody in the future. For now, the car is pretty much done. Just have to catch up on routine maintenance now. If I don't end up doing anything else I might sell it. Or maybe keep it and hand it down if I have any children. Of course, they'll have to earn it.
Looking for a new club? Have a look at the ones featured on our site HERE
I actually helped form a local crew here in Murfreesboro. We're called Revenant Society. A few of my friends wanted to create a crew and turn it into family orientated. We invited a few people and grew from just six members to over twenty current members. We've all became very close with each other and consider everyone family.
