    hey guys,

    never made an official intro post. my name is Jovan, and I'm a heavy duty diesel/truck mechanic.

    my mom bought a 2.5 Z about 9 years ago, ended up trading it for an Evo. she always loved a converitble roadster, back then it was all about alfa. long story short, she loved her Z, so ended up buying a 3.0 roady and then a 3.0 coupe. she ended up getting sick and ultimately disabled (she can still drive) so cars werent driven for 3-4 years, marinating in garage.

    i ALWAYS had a you know what for the coupe, so I had to have it. i officially purchased it from her in June and started to get her back in order. Registered last Friday and i cant stop the desire to keep driving. Anyways, pardon the lengthy post, but you guys have created a great resource which i've absolutely utilized. thanks much guys!

    thanks guys :D according to north american production numbers only 14 in this color (pistachio green metallic) made, 2 including mine in this exact configuration. it is the 2nd rarest color behind sienna red metallic. this was unknown to me until this past friday, so naturally i was pretty excited :)

    I'm not sure I've seen a picture of a coupe in Pistachio before. Looks fantastic.

    Your mum sounds quite a car fanatic on her own, so we can see where you get your motivation from!
