My Old Z12 Cube

I Kinda Miss This Thing

by Dustin Mankin

Well, Facebook reminded me that 7 years ago, I bought this thing new. At the time, my S13 wasn't running, and I was borrowing vehicles from every family member imaginable to get to work. We had a schedule, and they didn't care, because I was heading to one of three 20 hour a week part time jobs; but they did want me to get a vehicle.

My grandmother co-signed, even though she really didn't need to, and I picked up my new base model 6-speed Nissan Cube. I wanted the "Steel Greay" Gunmetal, but they didn't have one in. I settled on the black, and in the long run, I'm glad I did. In my opinion it was a much more VIPish color, and that's the direction that I wanted to head in.


This is where I was at 3 years later... It's a shame that my SSR Viennas got dented by the shitty Tennessee roads. I didn't bother to fight it. Kentucky has fucked up three sets of wheels of mine and never paid up. Always sent you running in circles. And yes, I dropped an f-bomb on here. It makes me that mad, but that's another story.

The specs as you see it are: a Kaminari spoiler (loved that "Ken Style" vibe), an ATI Grille, 18x8 and 18x9 SSR Vienna Kreis (offset escapes me, sorry), Megan Racing 2" Drop Springs, and a AEM cold air intake. The inside had a clear-black bubble knob (I'll make a video showing how to do it for anyone that is interested.), a wood grain Momo steering wheel, and a NRG short hub with Gen 2.5 Quick release. Oh, and a ballin stereo system. If anyone wants specs, I can post that up, too.

It wasn't the fastest, or the flashiest car I ever owned, because let's face it, it is hard to pay the bank and customize a car, if you have to work three 20 hour a week part time jobs just to make ends meet. But I took my time, and every part that went into my car was quality and name brand (maybe with the exception of the NRG stuff... it's ok, but it's not Works Bell, right?) and that made me proud.

I'd like to own another one day.

What was your favorite car? Sound off below in the comments.

  3. I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  4. Excellent post, its amazing that its necessary really but it is. I think Iarfhlaith's point about bigger buttons attracting more comments is very true. I'm subtle that way.

  5. The tutorial is very helpful for a first timer like me, by the way if you could have given a tutorial on creating a free website, it would have been very helpful for newbies like me.
    Thank you
