I’ve always been a fan of Nissan Z cars and Josh Jenkin’s 350 certainly does not disappoint. Tastefully modified whilst retaining it’s original charm and beauty.
Having seen his 350Z at one of our shows we had a little chat with Josh to find out more.
What drove you to your Nissan 350Z?
I started driving almost 3 year ago in a Vauxhall Corsa, eventually progressing to an Astra.
Whilst there was nothing wrong with these cars as such, but I just felt I needed something more.
Something quicker, something faster, something with more grunt.
I saw the 350Z and knew that was what I needed in my life. It filled the requirements I had set perfectly.
At 276bhp, its quick enough as standard for me, however I have done a few ‘improvements’ to it. I suspect it to be around 290bhp now.
What have you changed to make it your own?
Engine wise I’ve had the plenum spacer mod done as well as the custom exhaust.
Cosmetic wise though, I’ve had a few more bits done that really makes it stand out.
- Charge kit consisting of front bumper, rear bumper and side skirts
- Rear Louvre
- Interior Neons
- Blue dials
- Carbon wrapped roof and mirrors
- Alexis Penta wheels
- Tinted rear lights
- Private plate
Any future plans?
I’ve currently put her to bed in dry storage at a dedicated unit due to a couple of reasons.
Primarily I’ve recently moved house and don’t want to see her parked on the road, which is currently the only option.
When you consider the insurance due to my age and tax costs, it’s actually more viable to store it than one may think in comparison.
It had a deep clean before being stored professionally, including a wheel and arch clean. So I dare say she will be in good shape by time I go back to her when situations change.
What’s the end goal?
The dream from here is naturally a GTR, however I’m happy to dot around in my Corsa at the moment until I get the Nissan 350Z back out.
Financially it makes sense for now and I have something to look forward to for when I get it back. All whilst keeping it in tip top condition in the mean time.
Hopefully get to some more shows such as the ones hosted by TheCarScene when it does come back out of hibernation.
