Nice Whip. I sold my 04 350z a few months ago and got myself an 04 subaru wrx. Im curious to see how your car will fare when the big storms hit. I drove my 350z once last year to my local hill when the roads were dry. After that, i parked it up when it started to snow more.
I tried driving my 350z once with snow on the ground... lets just say... that didn't go too well... (i wasn't even able to get out of my driveway. But i only had all seasons on.) If you plan on driving that, you better have some good winter tires.
That was my first car and my dream car at the time... now i know its better to be practicle over anything else... especially if you love this sport...
honestly i will probably not take it this year. i have a friend with an 08 explorer 4x4 and no reason to take the Z. it is a great car and fun as hell to drive but i may go your route and get a WRX.
hmm i should find a pic of my girls 69' jeepster
