The F31 generation Infiniti M30 was essentially a Nissan Leopard re-badged and upgraded for the US luxury grand touring market. This meant that you got a rear-drive sports car sold as a competitor to the Toyota Supra and Mitsubishi Starion, instead of the typical front-drive junk you would expect from a re-badged Nissan. Today’s example […]
This next car comes as a seller submission from Josh who writes: It’s a clean and unmolested 2004 Infiniti M45. I know you know the basics, this body style was only available in the US in 2003 and 2004, it’s based on the Japanese Nissan Gloria, and has the VK45DE V8 from the Q45 shoehorned […]
This next car comes as a seller submission from Art who writes: Sadly, the time has come to part with my G35 6M sedan.. It’s a smoking deal compared to other first Gen 6MT sedans because it has some bear damage. Yes, bear. A bear. Hit my car. No, I didn’t hit him, HE hit […]
This next car comes as a tip from Johnny Bouncewell who writes: A car with a face only an engineer could love. Man, this was so radical then, but now, grill-free cars are everywhere. For likely under 2k all fixed up, you’ve gotta Radwood car that everyone will have forgotten existed. I agree that the […]
The Infiniti lineup from a few years ago was an interesting alternative to BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Acura, or Lexus and it was clear with prefix of G, M, Q or QX which kind of car you were looking at. But in the early 2010 era the product planners at Infiniti changed every car to be […]
The W123 generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a slow and steady beast that is typically powered by a 4 or 5 cylinder diesel engine that pushes something sub 100 horsepower into the rear wheels. These are slow cars, but they will outlast the apocalypse because they are built like tanks. This next example, however, has been […]
The G35 was a model sold at Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti in the USA starting in the 2003 model year. The G35 is powered by a 260 horsepower and 260 ft-lbs of torque version of Nissan’s VQ35DE that is located far back in the chassis (Nissan calls it FM -front midships) mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox that is connected to a viscous limited slip differential out back. Today’s example is offered for a decent price for the number of miles and condition. Find this 2004 Infiniti G35 offered for $8990 in Canton, MA via cars.com. Tip from Art C.
As much as I am a fan of over exaggeration and making blanket statements, I can’t get over the statement in the title of this next advertisement. The seller lists it as “best deal on craigslist”. Seriously? Let’s take a look at the local competition. Is it a better deal than this ’78 RX7 barn find for $3500? Is it a better deal than a manual gearbox equipped 03 Legacy Outback for $2000? What about this ’89 240SX that needs some work for $3800? That’s about it for the Sacramento area craigslist…so maybe this is the best deal. Find this 1992 Infiniti M30 Convertible offered for $3900 in Folsom, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
You might have never heard of the Infiniti QX4 before today…well…because it is an oddball luxury SUV from Nissan’s luxury brand sold from 1997-2003. You can barely throw a timing belt without hitting a Nissan Pathfinder around these parts, but good luck finding a QX4 — I have to imagine that Infiniti only sold a […]
Modern (post 2000 model year) cars are fast, complicated, and comfortable. Some are still too expensive, but others have depreciated into serious DT territory because of the immutable laws of supply (the OEM sold a ton when new) and demand (the newer versions are cooler/better/nicer smelling)…which have oddly favored the Infiniti version of the Nissan […]
