Enjoy! I picked up a SilverGray 04 vert last fall and she's been in storage for the last 5 months of winter!!!

Over the winter mods I did:

M3 Steering wheel
Illuminated M5 shift knob (ZHP style)
Strut tower brace

All three things that should improve the driving experience, so those are my suggestions of where to start...oh yeah and make sure all maintenace up to date, that tag line of this forum

Thanks my new rag. I had the front bumper scuffs and lower front scratches refurbished today. Hurt the pocket but feels so good. I'm gonna grab some new oem mats next week. I know kinda boring but bumper refurb cost 500 bux.

Just picked it up sat. Here's some dealer pics.


The day I got her, seeing snow on the ground and getting a vert was def a mixed bag of feelings. I thought about testing how well the heat worked, but my sensible side got the best of me.

Do you have a windscreen? If not, get one and you can do top down driving just about any time it's not snowing or raining. Thirty degrees and sunny is wonderful!

Nice, ZHP convertible! Is it a manual?

I had found a white manual ZHP convertible with the saddle interior. Was finalizing the deal to buy it, but had to sell my Trans Am prior. The buyer on my Trans Am backed out last minute. I let the ZHP owner know that I couldn't purchase his car. Then 2 days later a new buyer for Trans Am showed up, we made a deal. He picked up the car the next morning so I called back the ZHP owner, but car was sold a day earlier. I then looked for months to try and find one again, and finally settled on my non ZHP, but very nice convertible.

ZHP convertibles are quite rare, and even more so if it happens to be a manual.

No its auto, and I wanted an auto. I have a 240sx with an sr and thats enough manual fun for me. Although Im not gonna lie, auto still messes with my head.
Thanks, yea they didnt even advertise it as ZHP. They just called it an M package, and cold weather. Thats why as soon as i saw it i snagged it.


Ahhh, yea thats the same for me because im selling a 94 nissan 240sx vert. Buyers say they're gonna come by and dissapear. Sucks thats for sure.

Hope you got room for one more in this vert forum! I just picked up a nice 2001 330ci convertible. The car only has 76K miles on it and came with every option I think was available that year, including the Sports Package and the removable hard top.

Looking forward to spring time in the Big-A!
