1995 Nissan 300zx

I’m 27 years old from Long Island New York. Growing up Me and my family were always at English town raceway. My stepfather raced funny bikes so I was always around fasts cars. I saw my first drift car video around 12 and it changed my whole perspective on the car game. I think every car enthusiast has watched the fast and the furious franchises And I was thinking, have you seen a sick 300zx in any of their movies? No, I knew I had to build one when I was old enough to drive, I had a vision.
In high school, I owned a 95 Nissan 300zx 5 speed n/a that I loved but did not have enough money to build the car I wanted and ended up selling it over some small simple fixes it needed. Fast forward to the beginning of 2020 I began to search for a potential build. I found a clean stock body 300zx not too far from me and I went to look at it. The car was absolutely mint I took it home shortly after. My vision was to build an aggressive looking, fast car. I went with a pmz wide body kit and with the help of pakmanz himself we created my vision. Kbd front bumper and side skirts to match the body kit and now she was wide.
To match the body I got wedz Kranze ltz 18x11.5in the front 18x 12.5 in the rear. She sat mean. The car was two-tone for a few weeks until I had some kid talking smack saying it was ugly! The next day the car was in for a wrap. Black is hard to keep clean but sure is an aggressive colour. After the car came out of the shop I put the wheels on it and was going to stop there. Until I had a group of girls pull up next to me at a light. They were talking about the car and eventually ended up wanting to race! She had a stock Hyundai Elantra, grandmas car! She took me to gap the city and I was upset. The next day I went and found a 1jz drop-in swap a few hours away and didn’t hesitate to pick it up. I had the bay shaved by my friend Alex. We then had the bay prepped and painted candy red by 9th street auto, valve covers and grip royal steering wheel to match.
With a Mishimoto front intercooler and radiator, the car stays super cool. I put a precision 6266 ball-bearing turbo on it and she spools nicely. It has an hks ssqv blow off valve. Custom 4 inches to 3.5 v banded exhaust with hks chrome tips. The rear subframe was dropped and painted orange, all bushings were replaced. The differential was painted yellow. It has Brand new Megan racing rear upper control arms that are blue. Gold isr traction rods. The car sits on green tein flex z coilovers lowered a few inches. The rear end is very colourful. my vision was for it to look like skittles, eye candy. This whole car started as a drift build dedicated to my brother Tyler who passed away. We both loved these 300s and I know he would have wanted me to build it this way. There is more to come with this build, I mean is it ever really done?
