    I went and cruised the used lots today. Ended up coming home with a Q45... Nicest car I could find in my price range. I'll let the pics do most of the talking.

    1992 Infiniti Q45
    Not equipped with active suspension
    134xxx miles
    completely stock
    Leather interior, full power, all options.

    56k warning, pics are 1024x768

    Front

    Side

    Rear

    Engine

    For those not in the know, that's a 4.5 DOHC Nissan V8 rated at 278 crank hp. The only limitations are the huge flywheel and automatic trans. It's great for freeway driving though.

    I plan on getting some nice staggered 18s, dropping it, and re-tinting the windows, as well as all the maintenance-oriented stuff.

    aren't the flywheels on auto's usually just a thin piece of metal?

    Good for you, an automatic transmissioned car doesn't have a Flywheel. It's got a torque convertor instead.

    i thought the torque converter just replaced the clutch. if it doesnt have the flywheel, what does the starter grab onto to turn the motor over?

    Nice car, congratulations. It has 2 things going for it...

    1.) Nas raps about it in the song If I ruled the World. Kinda cool to have a car a rapper talks about.

    2.) They're pretty quick. I raced one on the interstate with my SHO. Honestly we were about even. Got up to about 120. If it had been from a stop I think I would have killed em, but on the interstate we were about even. Anyway my point is it's not a bitch.

    Hope ya have fun with it. And DO NOT put black rims on it, good lord.

    Then that's the problem. I couldn't remember if someone said it was the flywheel or TC.

    AH, there are some torque convertors with teeth on them, some not. The thin plate is a starter plate - the TCI in that picture is an aftermarket that does with out it.

    the TC in my Celica has a starter input shaft to keep the entire unit sealed. It's pretty ahead of it's time though.

    -> Steve

    Autos suck. Lets talk about something else.
