Someday, when I have 11tybillion dollars and a house with a 30 car garage, I’d love to build a true Boso car. I can just imagine cruising it down the strip of Waikiki flipping off cops and tourists while listening to some 80’s rock music.
But until that day I’ll stick with my tastefully modified cars.
According to SpeedHunters, which is the central hub trolled by the world’s finest automotive experts, the HellaFlush trend is on the way out. These grainy photos prove that the flush look has lived and always will live on, regardless of what 13 year old boys say.
BOOOOOOOOM! Loving those SSRs.
Found this on JNC from EDZ280ZX who owns a 280ZX (duh), that looks clean enough to eat off of
I love it. <3
And it’s all thanks to the owner of this car:

Props goes to tetsuyagarage for providing the world with these beautiful photos. Here’s some standouts that caught my eye from parts 1 and 2.
Jaw dropper. One day I hope to achieve this radness.
Nissan Yonmeri sittin’ pretty on some Work Equip 01’s. Rear fitment is on point!
Stance + camber = win. Loving the rear bolt on fenders for the true GT-R look. According to tetsuyagarage, the body panels are FRP.
ALMOST looks as good as a Hako coupe. Not quite though.
Lotus Europa on SSR MK3’s!?! Awesome…
Bulletproof. The L28et was the turbocharged engine that powered the 280ZX and it was damn near bulletproof. Because of this, when S30Z owners are looking to turbocharge their cars, swapping in the L28et is one of the first things they consider. Displacement, durable construction, ease of the swap and fuel injection. However, every so often, there is a black sheep.
I found this picture on HybridZ via turboHLS30. He was asking a question about fusible links and voltage regulators, hence the yellow Microsoft Paint square. Anyway, on to the good stuff. An E88 head from a 240Z, triple 40 DCOE Mikuni carbs and a Cartech turbo kit with a T04B snail. The whole set ups for sale for $2200.
I love seeing different set ups and this Cartech kit is definitely one of a kind. Swimming upstream can be pretty awesome.
Not many people have been kind to the S130/280ZX. It seems as though Z-Car lovers praise the S30, skip over the S130, then love the newer iterations of the Z (Z31, Z32, Z33 and Z34). I for one, love the 280ZX. My friend up in Sacramento has a stock, rust-free ZX that we used to run around all over Northern California with when I was going to school up there.
MMM… War paint and SSR Longchamps…
Crazy Work Equip 01’s with more lip than you can shake a stick at.
ZG flares, front bumper and deep dish rims makes for a lovely car.
SSR MK2’s + flawless paint = WIN.
I seriously can’t get over how awesome SSR’s are. Formula Meshes look so at home on ANY Kyusha.

True Wangan killers. In 1985, a club was formed that gave street racing in Japan a whole new meaning. These brave (or crazy) men tore up the Bayshore Route from Tokyo to Yokohama for nearly 15 years hitting ridiculous speeds until one night a group of Bosozoku bikers challenged them. On that fateful night, an accident occurred leaving 6 bikers injured and 1 killed. What sets the Mid Night Club apart from the countless “teams” in today’s scene is that they had strict rules and guidelines… One of them being, if anyone were ever killed, the club be immediately disbanded. Clever rule.
One member pilots one of the most famous S130 Fairlady’s in Japan, if not the world. With a hopped up motor and aero including one off fenders, this red beauty was able run a top speed of over 300 kilometers per hour! On an expressway! With out modern technology! Mind bottling (like when your mind gets all trapped up, like in a bottle)!
Love those color-matched Panasports. I wanted to paint my centers orange and the barrels black on my SSR’s but I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off.
Who needs a radio when you can listen to your motor screaming? Tach counts up to 10k RPM, I wonder what she redlines at?
Sweet CF radio delete holding all the vital electronics.
And what motor propels this rocket to such mind numbing speeds? A hopped up RB? Small block V8? Nope, the good ol’ L28. I bet the Devil Z looks pretty good from this S130’s rearview mirror!

Just close your eyes and imagine pounding the pavement in your Kyusha Kai approved ride on a gorgeous day with Megan Fox sitting shotgun. All of a sudden… Traffic… For as far as the eye can see. *Transforming sounds* Before you know it, you’re sitting on the shoulder of a giant robot, who’s smashing his way through the rows of cars!!!
“Robots in disguise” may conjure images of the new Camaro or a giant blue and red Peterbilt semi truck. I personally love the Transformers live action movies. On the flipside, a lot of people feel it’s a three hour commercial for the Big Three (Chrysler, Ford and GM) as well as the Air Force. Bad ass cars (although I still can’t believe they destroyed the Audi R8 in the first 10 minutes of Revenge of the Fallen), awesome explosions and of course, Ms. Fox.
For others, the term “Robots in disguise” may take them down memory lane. Waking up early on Saturday mornings to catch the cartoon, flipping through a comic book or playing with transforming toys. What most people don’t know, is that the creator of the Japanese version of Transformers had a serious fetish for some sweet 80’s JDM metal.
