Very nice! I never understood the point of the analog clock in the dash, but everything seems fine. The shots are a bit too close, and the pictures are really big. How about some less zoomed in pictures? Let'* see the interior!

If you use the Opera web browser, available from http://www.opera.com, you can use a toolbar button in there to shrink every picture to fit in the browser window at the same time while you remain on the forum.

Yeah, I was just trying to get the pictures up before work, when I get home from school in the afternoon tomorrow I'll edit and re-upload them as smaller.

Probably most important: How does this compare to the Bonneville you had?

Okay, pics should be fixed by now, though I do have to apologize for the quality, as I have only my camera phone. Compared to the bonneville? The only thing i really miss is the HUD. The seats are more supportive, but not as soft. The RWD is very nice. The V8 is even nicer. An all-aluminum V8 makes it even better. If you watch the video, you can hear the VVT kick in when it revs.
Edit: And in case anyone can't read the engine tag:
Infiniti

Displacement: 4494 CC/274 CI
