Godspeed You! GC10…

Here we have a car I am really, really liking! The Godspeed You! Nissan GC10 Skyline at the Sagamiko Skyline & Kyusha Meeting… I really need to move to Japan with my cars and get myself a house with a 20 car garage to fit all the cars I want to have in my collection!! Just look at those Watanabe Type-R’s… Such perfection in a wheel is hard to find… But man they do it for me!! πŸ˜€

Also, to see a sedan C10 in a livery that is normally associated with the Coupe is also really cool… And for it to also be rocking these flares is just as sweet!

Daily is registered!

So the daily has finally been registered legally on my name! So stoked, successful two weeks of leave before the new job starts! All that needs to happen now is the fine tuning of the SU’s as they are running a bit rich at the moment, and the 5 speed needs to go in ASAP for lower revs on the highway! πŸ˜€

Team Musasabi Bluebird Coupe…

This is one of the cleanest Bluebird Coupes I have seen, ever! The SSR MkII’s look just perfect on the car, and the drop is pure perfection to match the subtly flared arches. I like the clear fender indicators, never seen those before, and that custom dashboard is just killer! Apparently, while leaving the show where these photos were taken, this car T-boned a Honda NSX, completely destroying the front end of the car… Hopefully the owner can source all the parts to bring her back to her former glory, but for now, enjoy these beautiful photos…

The daily is roadworthy!!!

So after a long battle including the accident, being sent to do police clearances unnecessarily and all the work that had to be done after the accident to get her roadworthy, the daily passed the test today!

So stoked, now all that needs to be done is swop over the dogleg 5 speed gearbox from the parts car, along with the heater unit, and get some lower and stiffer springs to enhance the handling and the looks…

The daily gets an upgrade…

So last week I decided to remove the Nikki carb for a nice clean up and rebuild so that the car would be ready to go through the roadworthy test without any hiccups. The rebuild was successful (especially since it was my first time ever servicing a carb on my own!) and after driving around for a few hours afterwards the problems came back regarding the carb.This was not going to cut it as I need the car to be reliable for the new job I have just managed to secure which is going to involve a lot of highway driving.

So I lost my temper and removed the piece of shit and tossed it one side in favour of a set of SU carbs that came off my Coupe’s motor. (As you can see, I am not a fan of a twin choke down-draught carb, having only known SU’s on Datsun motors…) Luckily for me the Coupe will be Fuel Injected when its turn comes, so it was happy to donate its carbs for a good cause… πŸ™‚
