That car is on its last breaths of life. Both rear wheel wells rusted out(can check tire tread from the driver seat), front driver side subframe has some good rot going, and it started leaking oil pretty bad from the front main over the last few weeks. They just want it to use until my brother replaces the engine in his sonoma. After that it will either get parted out or go to the scrap yard.
Timing worked out great for me looking for a car anyway and my parents wanting to sell.

Haha, my beater/mpg car is a 96 sunfire. 271k and going strong. Wife has a prius c, which will be my next dd. I used to hate on hybrids, but after owning one, i couldnt ever get another commuter car that didnt regularly get 45mpg. Gas savings are awesome, and resale is higher then any other kind of car/truck

Yep... we met later last meet and we had about a 30+ minute wait

It's just me but I think meet between 10:30-11 and roll out for lunch around 11:15-11:20 at the latest to beat the crowd.

BTW, I ordered the K&N Carbon Fiber CAI for the Z last week, it should be here next week. Then today someone at my work told me if I call K&N that they do 50% off for military (those with CAC card) so I'll have to check that out too...

You don't see me at a meet, you'll probably see me around base. I'm at HAAF.
Good thing to know about the K&N discount too.

please do check. that would be a huge savings. I was gonna go with the rotofab because of the price difference. Who did you order through?

Ok so here is what I found out, it's not 50% but the discount straight from K&N brought it down to $630. I got mine from AutoAnything.com for $594 ish after they price matched me to: http://ecustomhitch.com but they aren't showing that price anymore. However, http://lol4x4.com has it at the $594 price too but autoanything will give you the free recharge kit still and will price match for a year from your purchase.

That said I got a call from them today saying it was backordered until April 25th, When I called K&N they also verified that it is indeed backordered that far out. So I won't be getting it next week but they were both really nice about it. So get your order in if this is the one you want.

I may just go for a white rotofab for under 400 bucks. No carbon fiber extra for me, looks nice but don't wanna spend the money.
