Deb - Neuf350Z  

From as far back as I can remember, I've always had a love for cars. My dad would tinker with his car and show me the ins and outs when I was younger. When it came time for me to get a car, I was more than excited because now I had something to tinker with. Of course looking back, my first car (1979 Ford Fairmont) wasn't the coolest ride in town, but it sure seemed like it to me at the time, even with it's one hubcap.

I've always been labeled as sort of a unique dog because I march to the beat of my own drum, literally. I've been a drummer for a little over 22 years now and was even in a few garage bands back in the early 90's. Most of music I play and enjoy listening to is heavy metal, hard rock, alternative, progressive metal and some pop rock. I even have my own online radio station that broadcasts various genres of music so there's a little something for everyone! NEUF Radio.

In addition to my love for cars, drums and music, I love creative things like drawing, painting, writing, tattoos and even building Halloween props. For 16 years, I've featured a special Halloween display in my front yard to scare the pants off the little children, and adults, in the neighborhood. I handmade the majority of the props and usually start preparing ideas around February, believe it or not. Some photos can be found here.

As for my Z obsession, it began on December 14th, 2002. I got to the dealership to pick her up but she hadn't arrived yet. I waited about an hour and paced back and forth by the front window waiting for her to round the corner. Suddenly, there she was, on the back of a flatbed. My jaw hung open, my gaze turned into an infatuated stare and I just about melted. They cleaned her all up and I went outside to drive her home. It was heaven, pure heaven. I knew right then and there this car had power beyond what lay beneath the hood.

In July 2003 I attended the 350z/G35 meet in Connecticut and had goosebumps for days thinking of all those beautiful Zs swarmed around in one place. And the Z cruises I've been on give you an incredible sense of pride. Just looking in front and in back of you seeing those Zs puts the widest smile on your face it almost hurts. And when you pass by the lookie-loos checking the cars out as you drive past, the smile gets even wider!

I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this car! Many don't understand my obsession. So my office cube is decorated with Z posters and Z models. So I park out in left field but try and grab the space in the corner so I can still keep an eye on it from the window. So I refer to it as if it were a child I'd given birth to. So I had Christmas cards made up with her photo on them. So what if I'm obsessed with my Z. Those that don't understand are just jealous.
