WORDS FROM THE OWNER
My name is Sabas Medina I’m 21 years old and live in Carson City, NV. My passion and enthusiasm for cars began at the age of 14 when I saw an old Super Street magazine. At the age of 18 I bought my first Z, a 2006 Nissan 350z. It only took a couple of months until I began to modify it furthering my interest in the scene. Unfortunately, 7 months down the road I crashed it going up a mountain. Shorty after the accident, I purchased my current 350z.
When did you buy your current Z?
Who does most of the work on your car?
Nick Hunter at 5523 Motorsports did all the engine work, but in other aspects my friends and I worked on my car.
Is this your first project car?
My first project was an 1984 Datsun 720 that I swapped a KA24de into.
What would you want your next project car to be?
My next project would be the second car that I have which is a 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution 8 MR
What made you choose this car over the competitive cars in it's class?
I chose the 350z over another car in its class because of its potential and design.
What was your initial goal with the car when you first purchased it?
My initial goal was to upgrade the camshafts, and add even more nitrous than my previous Z.
Where do you see yourself with this car in the next couple years?
In the next couple of years, I hope to have a finish car attending car shows and enjoying what I have built
Did you achieve your Initial Goal with the car?
I would say that for now I have achieved my initial goal, but it is a never ending process.
What are your future plans for the car?
My future plans for my car is to get body work and reduce the rear camber, a big brake kit, and possibly an air ride suspension.
What/Who inspires your build?
I get my inspiration from family, friends, and other ideas that cross my mind.
Is there anyone you would like to thank for the help/support throughout this journey?
I would like to thank my friends: Juan C., Dave C., Jaycee N., Nick H. and especially my girlfriend, Clarissa M., whom has been there since the beginning and has pushed me to be the best I can be at every step of the way.
