So after getting permission from my father I have decided to share his rally car with you today. All these photos have been retaken from prints my father has kept over the years.
As a little follow up post, here is a photograph of my grandfathers trophy cabinet that I was sent by my father. It is quite the collection eh?
This entire collection is now in it’s own dedicated room at the Franschoek Motor Museum in the Western Cape, South Africa. It is open the public most of the time.
So… After a while of debating and thinking what I would write in this post, arguably THE MOST IMPORTANT post to date on this blog, I have finally decided to share something with you all that very few people in the world actually know and acknowledge. Continue reading
I spotted this original looking Datsun B110 120Y sedan today sitting quietly by itself in the corner of an engineering shops lot.
I found this original photo of this incredible looking KP510 a little over a year ago and have had it as my desktop background ever since. It serves as inspiration for my own Coupe and I would love to be able to have my car look as good as this one does one day…
Here are a few photo’s that I have found of great looking P510’s… Enjoy!
Beautiful bumper-less example lowered over wide 13 inch Panasport rims. Also notice the lack of headlight trim pieces… Looks different no?
This particular car below is just so right in so many ways… One of my favourite P510’s ever and truly drool worthy if you ask me!
Immaculate 1600SSS sedan with fender mirrors and appropriate Longchamp XR-4 rims.
Two more modernised versions sporting carbon fibre hoods and Volk TE37V rims. Looks good… One a 2 door sedan and the other a 4 door sedan.
I wanted to share my favourite Fairlady Z of the past few years. I am amazed at the quality of this car. It is simply superb and well worth the $101,000 that it was sold for!
For my next feature I have chosen one of the most unbelieveably well restored Datsuns in South Africa.
The car in question is Riaan Jacobs’ 1977 Datsun B210 140Z Coupe. This car has been lovingly restored over the past two years by Riaan, who has not overlooked any detail whether big or small. This car has been featured in a local performance car magazine, so that must mean that it is brilliant?
Lets take a closer look.
