Brad Gardner: 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster

Brad Gardner's dream car had been a 370Z for a long time, so when he finally got the chance to purchase one of his own brand new in 2011, he jumped at the chance to pick up his 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster. He knew from the beginning that he was going to modify the car. Doing as much of the work himself as he could, Gardner has built a completely unique ride out of the platform.
