Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? I purchased the G35 after a combat tour in Iraq. It first served as a personal reward for surviving but later become so much more. For the last 3 years, it has served as rolling billboard as I spread awareness of veteran related ptsd though car events and public speaking.  I purchased the car due to the styling first, performance second as I knew I could always improve on that latter.  I ordered my 2005 model in November 2004 and it arrived March 4th, 2005. Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start,  what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? Any and all mods are designed to improve on the OEM characteristics and prepare the vehicle for track purposes. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? The biggest bang for the buck would be the Stillen sway bars. Of all my suspension mods, this one transformed the handling of car.  How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? Through experience, I learned to buy highest quality part for your money to save yourself from buying, installing and fixing things twice. What are you planning next? I have purchased and modded a new transmission and new hood in preparation for a motor swap. What’s been the biggest challenge with this build?  The learning curve from doing stuff not common on the platform.
