Pssssst, wanna know a secret to making a grown man happy? Besides the obvious ways, you can buy him a model car like his own real car. Provided that he thinks his real car is AWESOME!
It took me a while to find this thing, but once I did, I talked to the manager at the hobby shop in Laurel (on Domer Ave), Scott, and he hooked me up! Mike was beside himself with glee when he saw it. A 2008 Nissan 350Z NISMO. Or in Japan, a FairLady.
It has all the pieces he needs to put the car together and create an exact replica of his own car.
He can even paint the chassis red, when the time comes.
And the sticker kit even comes with the Brembo brake pad labels! Including the tachometer, speedometer, etc.
Chrome wheels, light fixtures, the works. We'll check back with ecstatic Mike when he's finished with this project...
