Hello from Virginia

Post by bbeatonVT »

Hello from Southwest VA!

Found the site a few weeks ago, and have been having a blast reading through the driving tips and conversations. I just picked up my dream car, a 2006 Nissan 350z Track (black) back in March, and have been on cloud 9 with it since! Thanks to this site I quickly got over any lingering red light/stop sign panics, and can focus on just having fun with her. Oh, and yes the z is a her, Zizi actually 8)

Looking forward to contributing!

Welcome! I've driven through SW Virginia a few times back when I lived in WV and drove to DC. Some nice winding roads.

Welcome. I've always liked the 350Z, especially the Track model with the nice Brembo brake package. Definitely post some pics when you get a chance.

A buddy of mine recently bought a 350Z, but instead of waiting for a decent standard one, he jumped on an autotragic one. Somehow not the same.
Two pedals, two feet, too easy.

pics are coming! More pressing is the beautiful 90+ degree weather and 3 day weekend ahead. Blue Ridge Parkway and a few secrets spots are calling my name. Plus the girlfriend is gone for the weekend, so it's special time for Zizi and me! Hope you guys and gals get some full tanks of gas and some time off to play!

Translation from someone who doesn't speak german:
Hi! Welcome to Standardshift. Something-something good for noobs, something.

Something something Auto! Something something, something.

My something something is something.

[/best translator ever] :lol: :lol:

Edit: Maybe I should learn some German. With my German heritage and all...

Now that I've reread it I realize I made a grammar fail. I combined both the formal and informal you. :(
