GTG V Details:

  • Infiniti G35/37 and Nissan Z meet in Torrance, CA
  • Over 100 modified Infiniti G's and Nissan Z's
  • Interview with one of the pioneers of GTG, Marcus Cooke

Only up until the third generation Infiniti G-Series did the car begin to grab a lot of attention. The earlier G20 was almost ugly enough to haunt children in their sleep, in some people's opinions. However, the Infiniti G35 brought with it a whole new ball game. The G35 had beautiful body styling, a fresh VQ35DE 3.5L V6 engine which was also in the Nissan 350Z, and the ever superior rear-wheel drive layout. Even with the facelift in 2007, the Infiniti G37 remained looking good. Nonetheless, a solid platform is just that, a foundation and it did not take long for tuners to weigh in.

Words like OEM and stock are simply unacceptable - if you're into that you're probably at the wrong website, try boring.com. There's a bond between people who modify their car. And that is exactly what Infiniti G35 and G37 enthusiasts have shared every year during the GTG or "Get Together" car show at Tanabe headquarters in Torrance, CA.

The GTG V started five years ago when a few G35 sedan owners decided to do a photo shoot to "showcase" the four-door. Marcus Cooke one of the pioneers for GTG mentions, "The G35 is often overlooked for the G35 Coupe. We decided to hold a meet after the photo shoot with intentions to be one of the largest G35 gatherings ever. That year we had 90 cars, more than half of them were sedans. A first at any Infiniti Nissan meet."

It's been five years since and the meet continues to grow. Marcus Cooke says, "Over the years, many of us have become very good friends. We converse daily about cars, life and help each other with our builds. Folks travel from pretty far to come to the GTG. NorCal, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, and Canda were all represented this year. It was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones."

Eventually I'd like to add a cruise as part of the event, but figuring out how to drive with 100 modified cars without hassle from the cops will prove difficult I'm sure.

We asked if there were any big plans for next year and Cooke responded, "I plan to be back at Tanabe next year and expect even more cars to come. Eventually I'd like to add a cruise as part of the event, but figuring out how to drive with 100 modified cars without hassle from the cops will prove difficult I'm sure. Next year we'll also have a live DJ and food for the event for sure." With support from over 25 sponsors and over a hundred cars we're sure it will be a big hit. Out of the many cars that showed up we handpicked these whips from the bunch as the top Infiniti G35/G37 cars. Also, we managed to get their spec sheet so you can see how much these tuners put into their build. To Infiniti and beyond!
