Thread: October 2007 ROTM Winner!

  1. #1

    Exclamation October 2007 ROTM Winner!

    Congratulations to Randall Lynn, aka RAGTPZ, of Cincinnati. His ride was chosen by the Freshalloy staff to be the innaugural winner of the Freshalloy Ride of the Month competition! Randall went from an eBay bid that didn't make reserve on a 1993 Nissan 300ZX to a ride we can all admire!




    Owner Narrative

    I purchased the car in October 2003 off eBay. The car was put on sale by a boat dealership in New York. The original owner used a boat as his primary transportation and actually traded this car in for another boat. The dealership did not think they could move a convertible right before winter so on eBay it went. So I did the bidding and won, but the reserve was not met, so I contacted the dealership to see how we could get the deal done. After contingency of the car passing an inspection, I purchased it unseen and seven days later it was delivered to my door via truck = NICE! It was immaculate and when I originally got the car all I wanted to do was put a decent stereo system in it and some decent wheels.

    I then hooked up with some fellow Z heads and low and behold caught the mod bug and decided to swap a twin turbo motor into it. I made the decision though to go all out and upgraded everything, chromed virtually everything, the whole nine yards... here it is.
