HAPPY CLIENT

Hello Mr. Lowrey:  I wanted to tell you the ’77 Corvette made it home safely.  I know you were a little concerned about driving it this far, but I had no problems at all.  It turned heads all the way home.  My buddies are “jealous”.  Thank you again for being honest about the car and I know I will enjoy it for a long time.  RT, MS

HAPPY CLIENT

I have been a hot rod guy since a kid. One car I have always wanted was a 1936 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe that was ready to go. I found one that was close to my dream car on Classic Car Store’s website. All steel body built from the ground up as a Pro-Touring car and built right. Jim was very helpful, specific and told me the good and bad about the car. I decided to buy it, bought a one-way ticket from Oklahoma to Birmingham, AL. I hoped the car was what it was supposed to be. Jim picked me up at the Airport and took me to the Owner, an elderly gentleman in a small country town. The car was everything represented, much nicer than I expected. After getting the banking handled I made a road trip back home to Oklahoma stopping and seeing a couple of friends on the way back. Not one problem with the car. Overall it was an excellent experience, especially when you are buying a car from photos and getting information from someone you don’t know. If you want a straight shooter when buying a Classic Car, Jim is the man. Thank you, DF-OK

Ann from Cincinnati says:

I worked with Jim to buy a Porsche 911 Cabriolet; I’d been looking for a Cabriolet in great condition for about a year and contacted Jim. Working with him via text, email and phone was simple and streamlined plus he’s a very interesting guy who is genuinely passionate about cars and about a straight forward sales process. I’d never purchased a car sight-unseen from an out of state seller — so I had some reservations, however Jim said all the right things, produced all the right support and responded quickly. The entire process took less time than I originally thought it might and the car exceeded my expectations. Thank you again, Ann (Cincinnati, Ohio) 

Sheryl from Birmingham says:

Jim did an absolutely fabulous job from start to selling of my husbands car. He took, what was a very stressful situation for me, and made it very easy. He handled every detail as if he knew my husband personally. I highly recommend his services for selling your prized vehicles.(Sheryl, Birmingham, AL) 

 

 

 

First Spin: 2023 Nissan Z

5/16/2022
Damon Bell
Nissan with the introduction of a redesigned Z sports car for 2023, and the company’s solution to the potential-sales-versus-development-dollars dilemma is to follow the same basic strategy it did with the recent redesigns of its Frontier pickup truck and Pathfinder midsize SUV: Instead of a clean-sheet, from-the-ground-up redesign, take the basic bones of the long-in-the-tooth previous-generation vehicle and give it a fresh powertrain, completely revamped styling, and a significant technology-feature upgrade.

The 2023 Nissan Z was unveiled in show-car form as the Z Proto concept vehicle in mid-September 2020, and the production car’s styling is carried over pretty much intact from the concept. Even though it was widely speculated that the new Z car would be called 400Z, Nissan has elected to do away with numerical prefixes—the name is just “Z” now. The previous-generation Z car, the 370Z, debuted for the 2009 model year and lasted through the 2020 model year with no major revisions. Twelve years on the market is a long time for any vehicle, and by 2020 the 370Z felt well behind the times in terms of technology features and overall refinement. The Z car went on hiatus for the 2021 and 2022 model years, but 2023 Z is scheduled to arrive in dealerships this summer.

To start, the new Z gets a serious horsepower upgrade over its predecessor’s 332-horsepower 3.7-liter V6: It’s powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, borrowed from Infiniti’s Q50 and Q60 Red Sport 400 models. This engine puts out 400 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 350 lb-ft of torque from 1600 to 5200 rpm, and offers the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 9-speed automatic. One of our favorite features on the manual-transmission 370Z, the SynchroRev Match downshift rev-matching system, is carried over to the new Z. It automatically blips the throttle on downshifts for a smooth transition between gears, making even novice drivers feel like heel-and-toe pros, and it can be turned off if you’re an experienced driver who wants to heel and toe on your own.
