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

FANTASTIC! 

I highly recommend Jim with Classic-Car Store to help you find your next classic vehicle. Jim was instrumental in helping me find my 1966 Ford Mustang GT. The experience was so successful that I asked him to help me find my next "forever" car. Jim is very responsive, follows up and has excellent communication skills.   

THANK YOU very much.... 5 STAR GOOGLE RATING by Dennis Lareau, FL

Hey Jim, I got the ’70 SS 454 yesterday.  It made the trip on the transporter just perfect.  It has been raining so I haven’t been able to get it out to drive yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  It is a beautiful car and some of my neighbors and friends can’t quit talking about it.  Thanks for your hospitality when I flew down to look at the car.  I am glad it was like you said and I think we both ended up pleased.  I definitely will refer you if any of my friends are looking for a classic car.  Thanks again.  JS, MA

Buying cars through Jim has made the process literally a breeze!  Even more important to me than his expertise is his honesty and integrity. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to buy or sell a car!"  MG, 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.
