Z Chickz couple.
and Christa first met while attending LaVernia High near San
Antonio, Texas. The first vehicle they had was an old Ford
pickup that would die everywhere they went. So Christa decided
to get a new car.
idea of having a Japanese import came from their friend Jack.
They would always talk about how badly the movie "Fast
and the Furious" was done, pointing out all the mistakes
that were made. Jack would always talk about rally racing
having this discussion every day for about 45 minutes at a
crack, Christa started thinking about what car she would like
to have. Unfortunately, they knew nothing about cars, and
could not really afford anything that was too hard to maintain.
She settled on a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS.
Christa got her car, Joseph wanted to get a car too; so he
bought a 1994 Integra. That’s when they started ordering
magazines and reading about cars.
day Joseph stumbled across a car that caught his eye. They
didn't know what it was at the time, but they knew it was
awesome and fast! There it was in the article, some car called
a Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo. They drooled like two monkeys,
and Joseph said, "Heck with the Integra, we're getting
one of those!"
started on their adventure by selling the Integra. After it
was sold, they went on a long search for a Z-32 TT. It had

and one-day she got lucky. She found an ad for a silver automatic
Z-32 TT owned by a Vietnamese guy who could hardly speak a
word of English.
told Joseph to jump on it immediately, so the very next day
Joseph and his mom drove over to Houston. Joseph fell in love
with Angel when he first saw her. As they were test driving
her, the owner scared Joseph with her turbo power. That’s
when he decided he had to have her.
Christa wants a Z for herself. She’s trying to sell
her Eclipse so she can get her dream car. One Z for this couple
just isn't enough!
