On The Open Road

Jul 31, 2022

Maryellen Ross’s Z Story:  When I graduated college in 1987, I immediately started saving up for the Nissan 300ZX 1987. I was a new graduate nurse and it took me a year to establish credit and get approved for the loan to buy my dream car at the time. I purchased it for $23K back in 1987 and was so proud to own it. 

I could fit everything I owned in it and drove across the country several times as a “traveling nurse” on short assignments all over the country. Me and my Z  have had so many fun adventures together out on the open road with just a CB radio and the cassettes, no cell phones or internet. The times driving my Z with all my stuff on the open roads were some of the Best times of my Life. It’s those memories that keep me from selling it. 

So I’m the original owner. Once I got married and kids came, it sat under-appreciated and alone since 2009. I recently got her tuned up and running again and couldn’t be happier to find there are groups of people who like the same thing…lol who knew? 

I will get it a new paint job and street legal and I hope to join some rides around San Diego if that’s a thing. 

#zownersunite, love that.
