PART 4: 2011 Western American Road Trip, Nissan Spec V, 1951 Chevy truck, Thanksgiving dinner
We made it to Gilbert AZ, a suburb of Phoenix. Newton was happy to be out of the car.
My uncle’s 1951 Chevy truck. He lined the bed with cedar.
Newton enjoying fresh air.
Looks like a late 60s Chrysler Newport.
We went to check out the condos my uncle was refurbishing. The value dropped like a rock during the housing crisis so he bought a few as rental units.
Enjoyed some sake.
A while ago one of my cousins bought a Mitsubishi Lancer.
Rockford Fosgate audio.
Nice light clutch.
152hp 2.0L DOHC I4
It looks unusually tall but the styling of the nose and tail are nice.
My other cousin’s Sentra SE-R Spec V.
Stock, the QR25 in the Spec V produced 175hp, enough to hit 60mph in 7 seconds.
He modified darn near everything. On the road, it felt aggressive and taut. At about 2500rpm it really came alive and hit 60 in what felt like just over 6 seconds.
This also has a Rockford sound system.
I had a blast driving it around town and on the highway.
