2009 Nissan 370Z: Stink Eye Blind Spot

May 12, 2009

Our Z has a friggin' huge sloping B pillar that makes backing out of a space really tough because the blind spot is massive. It makes me really nervous whenever I have to do it because I'm afraid I'll run over my neighbors cat or something.


Well, over the weekend my fears were realized. No, a cat wasn't squashed, but when I was slowly backing out of a space at 7-11 a dude slapped the side of my car and gave me the finger through the passenger window. He was walking up to the store directly in my blind spot, I never saw him.

The next day I was backing out of a spot super slow, nervous I was going to get another finger of vengeance. My windows were down, leaning out when I could, looking through the windows, in my mirrors, just trying to get the best look around my car as possible. As my passenger side window cleared the rows, there stood a lady with a stroller giving me the stink eye.
