Jason's 1984 Nissan 300ZX Turbo
Summer daily driver which started its life with me as a bone stock 1984 300ZX non-turbo 2+2.
It's now anything but stock, but still not quite where I want it to be. Producing over 1.1G's on a 100 foot skidpad and making 453RWHP with 20PSI boost on 93 octane, it's not exactly bad... but it can only get better from here.
