I don't think all of us are broke. I chose a B13 VE when I could have had a brand new C7 Vette, GTO, 370Z, etc.

So why did I choose a 22-23 year old Sentra?

Dad. My Dad died last year but my first car was *his* 1991 Sentra SE-R that he sold me for $1,000 in 1998 when he bought a brand new Sentra SE. I still remember the new car smell and the shine and gloss of the black paint on his car. I knew "Dad's car was fast" but we were stunned when we found out my newly acquired 91 SE-R was much faster than his 98 Sentra SE, I think we thought it had more HP or something b/c it was brand new, but as we know the B14 is heavier and slower in stock form, especially the Sentra SE.

But I digress.

I keep coming back to the B13 because it reminds me of simpler times, of times when all I worried about was getting my brother off of our 1 computer so I could get on the internet to talk to my then girlfriend on AOL, when my only bill was $30/month from my Nokia cell phone. It's all for my Dad. All of it. I would never be here or have ever met so many of you online and in person if it wasn't for him. I wouldn't be making a living doing what I'm doing, something I'd do for free, if it wasn't for him.

In a few months it will be 2 years since he died; but everytime.. EVERYTIME I get behind the wheel of my 1992 Sentra SE-R, I remember him....

....and I need to remember.

You've got a point there. I'm a born and raised Jersey boy, the cops on 78 and 80 are RUTHLESS. Nail you for everything.

Yep, the grass is greener syndrome. I'm already bored with a 208-210whp N/A B13 VVL. Sometimes I do kind of miss the purity of the DE. But it wasn't always like that. Holy crap, did I have fun in my car when I got it all together few years ago, and still do, but the last go-fast mod I added was G-Spec pulleys and that was last summer 2012. No new power except weight reduction in well over a year. I don't just get on it to feel the acceleration anymore like I used to.

I've been itching for something RWD for a long time. But the only 240sx I wanted was a 97 or 98 for a DET swap, almost impossible to find, but when you do, people want like $16k for it. So then I looked at 300ZX's. 90 percent for sale are non turbo and beat to crap, and the TT's they want $14k+ for a 1990 with 120k miles and usually something like a blown turbo or bad head gasket. but they're usually better taken care of. So for me, it was back to the B13. And now Altima SE-R because VQ35DE Although I wanted the 350Z, it just didn't have the room I need or cargo space.

Only thing locked I track wise is the road course. As for the drag strips nothing yet. Still plenty of time for that.

I have a appointment with a hotel manager next Wesnesday. Hopefully then hotel details will be completed !!!

I may have convinced the old man to a father-son bonding adventure to Ohio...possibly a 3 generation road trip if my oldest son comes too!

Never count me out son...
