Default prospective buyer - need help

I'm a young (25) working professional, and I currently own a 2004 g35 with less than 19k miles on it (paid for). I'm very interested in purchasing a GTR and I have the money to do so, however, I am hesitant without a test drive.

I've been to three dealers so far, and none of them allow a test drive for the GTR. I understand why that is, especially to someone as young as me, but that doesn't really do much for their sales.

I registered on this site with the hope of a local Chicago owner who would be willing to meet up with me and show me the car and take me for a ride. I have no problem paying for gas etc.

I think that is ridiculous! I'm also 25 and met with several dealers who wouldn't even allow me to look inside of the vehicle without the manager there. I wrote corporate Nissan about it because I was appalled at the prejudice against a young person wanting to purchase a high priced vehicle. I found a Nissan dealership who was eager to help me and who wanted me to test drive an 09 GTR, but I already knew I wanted it and wanted a 2010. (Loved the Skyline from when I was 16 and lived in Japan) Due to my great customer experience, I ended up purchasing my 2010 from them. I would find a dealer who shows you the respect you deserve as a potential buyer!

Peoria is a bit of a haul for those of us in the Chicago area, where there are likely more owners than downstate. For a great gathering, once a month, May through Oct, check out www.SupercarSaturdays.com. It meets in the North suburbs of Chicago and is very nicely organized and gets a great mix of GREAT cars. Check-out their "gallery" page for photos. In early 2009 we typically had 3 to 4 GT-Rs show-up and as many as 6 later in the summer, with 9 or 10 different owners in all.

I'm open to other meet options as well, so keep posting.
