    ADAMZX 2000spec Conversion

    Hey everyone, as Ive mentioned many times in the past, I am eager to start making youtube content based on my ownership of my Z and all of the work ive done to it over the past 15 years and build a purely Z32 oriented video platform for everyone to watch and enjoy and hopefully learn something new from.

    The main goal I have in mind for this channel is to provide informative but also interesting Z32 content that will help other Z owners learn and discover what I think makes the 300ZX Z32 so special to me. I would obliviously showcase my Z as the main star of the channel and detail all of its history since Ive owned it and then detail out my 2kspec conversion project plans before showcasing each day I worked on the car until it was semi finished in 2012 as a main feature of the channel.

    But I also want to showcase video content to help other Z owners learn about maintaining and servicing their 30 year old cars with DIY video guides for all the mechanical and servicable jobs we all need to do to keep our cars running and on the road.

    More content I have in mind are lists and reviews of reputatble online Z32 part suppliers I've dealt over the past 15 years. The more places owners know of to source Z32 parts from, the longer we can keep our cars repaired and maintained and on the road for.

    When looking at other Z32 youtube channels out there and the content they provide, its mainly all about power modes and racing oriented content which is fine but I have no desire for that type of stuff and I want to provide a more focus on the purity of the Z32 platform as it was from the factory and treating it like its a modern day special edition super car as that is what it is to me.

    So I have been trying to think of an appropiate channel name that would best suit all of the above content ideas and also describes what the Z32 is to me. I have a hand full of names I want to consider for the channel name but I cant decide which one is the best one and though maybe I should ask you guys what do you think of the names and whether you like them or no. The easiest way i thought to do this is via a poll and hopefully with your help and maybe suggestions I can make the right decision and build a following from that name.

    So here are the names Ive come up with so far and why i think they would be a suitable name for the channel.

    "ADAMZX"

    This is an oblivious username Ive been using on this forums and other forums for years and I use this alias because my licence plate is ADAMZX which was a 25th birthday gift from my wife and family. Its a great youtube channel name but to me it has one drawback that i can think of which is it puts my car's licence plate up on the internet and everything thats been done to it and may attract someone to potentionally target my car for either threat of vandalism in the future.

    "Tribute Z32 / 300zx"

    I choose this name as one potention because my car is basically a tribute car to the 2000spec Version R model which a member on here mentioned to me whcn I got flamed in a thread years ago after trying to argue with another member that my Z was kinda a true 2000spec model in a way when I know its technically not a true 2000spec model, so tribute Z32 to me was a good channel name that is descriptive but also makes you wonder what is the car a tribute of, so there is some mystery to the name.

    "Enthursiast Z32 / 300zx"

    Simiular to the tribute name option but this one more desribes an enthursiasts approach to the channel and as I'm a Z32 enthurasiast through and through, i thought this might work as well.

    "Daily Z32 / 300zx or Daily Driven Z32 / 300zx"

    And lastely the daily names that ive been really drawn to and I mainly got the idea to use this "daily" name theme from an existing youtube channel named "daily driven exotics" and that was a channel name that got me really intrigued and interested to see someone actually DD an exotic car, when I know its an uncommon practice to DD any exoitic car due to several reasons including expensive to run / maintain and expensive to repair (sound familar) and this is sorta what some owners on here think about our cars even though they arent exotic cars at all but are instead known as classics cars.

    I have DD my car for years and I love it I couldnt not drive it, I love the car that much but its also because I built this car myself and spent thousands of dollars to make it my dream Z and I couldnt imagine putting in a garage which I dont have one yet anyways and not drive it. so I kinda want to make a statement that you CAN DD a Z32 and even though some owners will tell me otherwise, I want someone out there to know that it can be done and my videos will show you how I manage to do it and do it on a budget as much as possible and thats what i want my channel to showcase.

    Anyways please let me know what you think about the avaliable names and post you choices in the poll, you can make multiple choices of up to 2 names and ill leave the poll up for 2 weeks.

    "Adamzx's Z32 daily drive guide" or "Z32 daily drive guide" might cover your topical ideas better.

    ADAMZX 2000spec Conversion

    I agree that would be a suitable name but i think it needs to be short and sweet. So its easy to remember. Think of guys like travarish, hoovies garage, legit street cars all have a name that you can recongise to some degree.

    Still its a suggestion ill consider and please if anyone else has suggestions or ideas please post them here

    I think Daily Z32 / 300ZX, or a similar name will allow you to appeal to more searches and people, where as Adamzx will not be something that people will search for unless they know to search for it.

    ADAMZX 2000spec Conversion

    Well ADAMZX seems to be the overwhelming choice by the people. I do agree though as ADAMZX is an excellent name to use which is short and sweet but descriptive enough to tell youtube that my name is adam and this is my 300zx. I do appreciate everyones suggestions and ideas in this thread and i hope to start filming my z content soon and get some fresh z content out there in the new year. Merry christmas to everyone and a happy new year.

    Adamzx makes sense.

    plays off the adamlz platform also. so you might get some Merica! Hits also.

    be curious what content you create. I’ll keep an eye out for it.

    I’m out of the z32 game now but after selling a heap of my gear few fellas I’ve been talking to recently had me looking back haha.

    Thanks for the support Sanouske and vote for ADAMZX, which I have now embraced and began my first steps to creating a new logo and branding for the channel.

    Progress has been slow at this point, as I'm no graphical designer and I have no experience editing videos, so this is all new to me but I'm am eager to learn the ropes of making a youtube channel and I'm commited to trying to make it work to the best of abilities and not just for me but for everyone who watches my content in the future.

    For those of you here interested in checking out my channel now, heres a direct link to the channel home page and hopefully I'll be able to post my first video content as soon as I can.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5glFwPgSSZ0BSq9UQaKdXA/featured

    On top of that, I've also started being active and posting on my instagram account, which will obliviously showcase more current video content of my Z then youtube, as I plan to start my Z story there first and build up to current events over time.

    https://www.instagram.com/adamzx_z32/

    As far as content goes, I have a alot of ideas floating in my head about what I want this channel to be about and how it differs from all the other Z32 channels out there already. The biggest issue I see for me in the Z32 content on youtube right now is, that the every single creator on youtube with a Z32 is so focused on 1 of 2 things, racing and or huge performance upgrades for more power. I understand those things can be important to people and the creators themselves are modifying their cars to make them more powerful so they can do the things they want the car do but to me its all the same thing and then next thing you know they blow an engine and they say its time for an engine rebuild, but then you see they dont want to rebuild the original "VG30" engine, no they have to go for either a LS, RB, 2jZ engine making it less of a Z32 channel and more of a car channel to me and I loose interests.

    I want to create a Z32 dedicated channel that showcases the best parts of the Z32 and its community without changing the car to something it was never designed to be. the 300zx is not a super car like a lamborghini or a dedicated drag car or a drift car. To me its a street driven GT cruiser and was Nissan's Fleet leader car back in the day so why change it i say.

    I hope to tell a great Z story about how I fell in love with the Z32 chassis and then show all the ups and downs I went through with my hunt to find the car I brought and still own today 14 years later. Showcase my massive 2kspec build project day by day, so you can see the car change from what it was then to what it is now.

    I also want to provide Z32 specific information and my first hand experience to other Z32 owners about how to keep these cars long term and maintained properly, I would like to also include reviews on Z32 parts and even speciality tool suugestions to help other Z owners solve potential problems they may have and a whole list of other related topics.

    I know its alot to deliver but I hope one day my channel will be a place for all Z owners to go to ind the right information or video they need so we can grow as a community even more and the Z32 can last the test of time.

    Mate, don't get caught up on the small stuff like titles and logos. If the content is good everyone will watch. Looking forward to watching your videos.
    But be prepared to answer questions. Questions like what did it cost, what it's worth, what's your future intentions.
    If your going to put it out there, don't make the costs a big secret.
    Like other Aussie youtubers.

    Interesting Jason, most if not all of the information and advice youtube is telling me right now about starting a youtube channel is to 1; make a good clickable thumbnail for a video and 2; just start uploading videos and get the ball rolling. But I totally understand what you mean, I have no doubt some of my content I have so far will be interesting to some people out there and i also know others may dislike or even disagree with my opinions and content, but thats ok I cant please everyone.

    I actually have already tried to make a name for myself on youtube before, but back then it was centered around my gaming interests. But I realised that taking the effortless route and not editing videos and not caring about thumbnails didnt work out very well. I did managed however to get around about 50 subscribers at one time on the channel and I even got a letter from youtube with a partnership offer but this was back when the monetisation requirement was basically none existant and I currently have about $40 in revenue collected in my adsense account just sitting there, but it only recently got closed by google due to no additional funds being made into the account in a long time as Ive been demonetized for years after youtube changed the requirements for partnership a few years ago. Still I plan to stick with it this time around and not worry about the numbers and instead I just want to provide a steady flow and quality based Z32 oriented videos and content that hopefully people will watch, and my channel can grow and make a name for itself one day.

    Here's a title
    "FAIRLADY Z THE MODERN CLASSIC"

    Are you going to ad commercials, and sell merchandise, and try to pick up sponsorship? or are you solely in it to get good content out there for the people to enjoy? Either way mate, I look forward to watching and subscribing when your videos go live.

    I like it jason, I am still writing my rough drafts of my first video atm so it may fit the title perfectly and I appreciate every bit of help and suggestions I can get so thank you again for the help.

    To be honest I would love all of those things to happen for my channel in the future. However I know it will take me several years of steady growth on youtube before any of that becomes a reality so for now, all of that stuff is just a pipe dream for me to shrived for if I can make good enough videos to enterain my audiance and get noticed one day.

    All I want to do right now is to create interesting and captivating videos centered around my Nissan 300ZX, a car that literally changed my life forever and made me the person I am today.

    Would be good if you created a vid that embodied the idea of disavowing the bs associated with the ownership of a z32. Touch on all the “don’t buy because” issues the internet is full of. These cars aren’t complicated by any means of the imagination. But require thought and an understanding of how integrated systems work.

    I’d support a video about all that.
