Some S20 love…

If you consider yourself  a Datsun enthusiast as many of us say we are, some point in time we have all lusted after what is arguably Nissan’s best piece of automotive engineering… And most definitely the best sounding engine they have made to date (not even an RB26 can come close to an S20 at full cry!)

Here are a couple of photos of some good looking S20’s… Man I love this thing… How is this one that is cutaway?? 😀

Plastic models built by skilled hands…

I recently came across these couple of exquisitely built and highly detailed plastic model cars from a model car show in Japan. These two Fairlady Z rally cars look really incredible, and it is obvious that they were built by knowing hands…

The 1973 Monte Carlo car of Rauno Aaltonen and Jean Todt features some lovely detailing in the engine bay, with a scale L24 running triple Mikuni-Solex carbs…:-D This looks to be a 1/12th scale model,which is what I am after to try and build a replica of the car my grandparents drove in the 1971 Monte Carlo Rally…

The plan for my 620…

So I was a bit bored last night and decided to photoshop a shot of my 620 to see how she will look once I have lowered her by the 100mm I am planning on… And I must say she is going to look super slick!! 😀

Still want to get a bunch of parts from Thailand for her to get her looking tip top… Can’t wait to get started!

Pretty special Fairlday Z…

This is something that I would like to have sitting quietly in my garage amongst a couple of other special cars… Especially seeing that it has one of the rarest motor setups for the L-series straight six… The LY28! The fact that it is turbocharged just makes it that much sweeter… Would like to know what the power figures are! 😀

Skyline KPGC-10 Rally car…

This was shared with me recently, and it is naturally something that I just had to share naturally. Unfortunately I can’t read Japanese (yet) but this is just really interesting to see… And pretty cool!!

Really something to see a KPGC-10 Hakosuka sliding around on the dirt… Get’s my juices flowing! 😀
