It’s not how you drive your ride it’s how you detail……
Forget the intro get down to business, Nessen
wide body master piece 350z
combined with money, money, money and you have the art work of John Alvey. After a depressing wreck and 7 months of nearly 200 hours of hardship gives you a custom one of a kind Z you see today. As most of you may know by now, the VIS AMS body kit is not made for the 350Z; in fact it’s made for its predecessor the 370Z. Who ever said you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks, may have been right, but you sure as hell can give it a face-lift. Just madness to think someone would attempt such a feat, but when your Mick Harris and being the tip of the iceberg is the goal you do what you have to.
It’s been along time since we were able to catch up with Mick as before he developed the creature, he was rolling single turbo with average man mods. Make no mistake; he was far from a force to be fooled with. But he was far from finished with his journey you see him on now, as he seems to smash all competition in his class with merely a drive by.
The interesting thing is that you don’t see work like this from the jump; you have to move through trials and tribulation before getting to this stage. Mick is an example of a growing enthusiast that as he started first with BMX, later dropped the training wheels and moved to motorcycles, and finally found safety in 4 wheels and 2 doors of his 350Z. Never the less Micks stays humble, as there is always something to be learned from both younger & older people in the game. We look forward to see what he pulls out his hat next.
