2009 Nissan 370Z: A Relief To Drive

October 05, 2009

I flew up to San Jose this weekend, rented a 14ft Uhaul truck, loaded it up with stuff my girlfriend's stuff her aunt didn't want to store for her anymore and drove the 400 miles south to my lady's house. I was pretty exhausted by the time I got there.

I'm sure most of you have driven a big rental truck at some point in your life. They're smelly, bouncy, uncomfortable, loud and usually laden with hidden trash/cigarette butts. Not to mention these things are massive. After the seven hours I spent in it, I was ready to get the hell out of it.


I dropped off the rental and got into our long term Z. My god, the difference. I went went from hating to drive, to absolutely loving it. The Z was everything the Uhaul was not. I especially loved the seats. Conforming, supportive, and not bouncy!

I loved the Z so much I took it for an extended spin. Yeah, I'd been driving all day, but it was nice to have something that made driving fun.
