We remember when Angelo first sent us a private message on our forum a few months ago asking us if we would be interested in featuring his car, and if we can make it happen rather fast as he thought that the kit wouldn’t last long due to the car being so low. Well, here we are about 6-7 months later and even though the car may be a bit bruised up it’s still in one piece! He has somehow managed to daily the car and even take trips from Socal to Las Vegas to kick it with the LowBallers & RoyalOrigin family that he is a part of. While it may not be the flashiest Z around, we’re willing to bet that most of you will appreciate & respect the dedication behind it. With that said, let’s get into some specs and photos!

We asked many of you on our Facebook today if you could guess what the wheels are that Angelo is rocking. As expected, many of you got it right from the start. They are indeed SSR Gartmaiers, 18×10 up front and 18×11 in the rear with “unknown” offset. It’s not a secret, Angelo just really isn’t too sure on the offsets. The front tires are 215/40/18 and the rears are 235/40/18. For suspension, Angelo mounted some SMA coilovers (pretty rare in the “fitment” community) and he tweaked the front and rear camber with Ichiba camber arms and toe bolts. The photos below really speak for themselves.
When it came time to add some exterior goodies Angelo wanted to try something a bit different! All authentic Veilside front lip, Chargespeed side skirts, JP Aero rear diffuser and he ended things with a Stillen roof wing. The skirts are literally an inch off the ground as well the front lip. Like we said before, what impresses us even more is the fact that Angelo drives this thing everywhere! As always, don’t forget to click the Read More button to see more awesome photos of this dumped Nissan 350Z.
Under the hood and inside the cabin things are pretty simple. Injen cai, Nismo clutch and a custom Stillen true dual exhaust keeps the car sounding right while small things such as JDM Proper 330mm shift knob, soundstream double din and vleds dome lights. He told us that he would like to eventually work on getting some sort of aftermarket steering wheel but “parting out” and sale of the car will probably happen before that unfortunately. We’re sure however that whatever he gets his hands on in the future, it will look absolutely incredible in no time.
We’ll end this feature with shout outs to Royal Origin, Lowballers, Oniwagens, our incredible friend & photographer Jeff Payuan for the awesome photos and last but not least, Angelo himself. You’ve built an awesome ride and you roll with the dopest crew! Think you have a ride worthy of Stance:Nation? Make sure you email us a couple photos to firstname.lastname@example.org when you get a chance!
