Picked all these up off of JNC for $60 shipped. Not bad considering if I can ever find any Japanese tuning mag here (usually Option, Drift Tengoku, or VIP Car), it’s $20+ for an old issue. Score!
Added bonus, in the Z car HyperRev, a page is signed by Steve Millen!

Each and every one of these.
The unmistakable “Surf Line” plus the wide steelies are craaaaazy.
I have a sick love for Longchamps. Too bad if you don’t like it.

Here’s a first for my blog. Isuzu Bellett GT-R. I honestly don’t know much about them other than the fact that they have a dual cam 1.6L engine and that they’re rare as unicorn poop. Somebody school me!
Proof that Watanabes look good on anything. I’ve been telling EVERYBODY who will listen to me that new(er) cars look great on small wheels and huge sidewalls, but not many believe me. This is the only picture that I remembered where I pulled it from. Props to Matt from Farm Of Minds
Watanabes again? Stay classy, Coupe.
I. LOVE. THIS. PICTURE. It’s like Pokemon. I need to catch ‘em all. Bluebirds, Hako, Fairlady and 1200… OH MY!
Caught these photos online at Wolf Creek Racing under their Street 510’s section. Big Bird from Sesame Street might get jealous from all the attention that this Bluebird gets.
Dropping weight on an already feathery car is tough. With most 510 owners reporting that their cars weigh in anywhere from around 2050lbs to 2200ish lbs, the carbon fiber front end will hopefully help this Bluebird get under 2000lbs.
The CF treatment continues in the rear with a trunk lid. Awesome looking LED taillights remind everyone who tries to race, about Colin Chapman’s theory of adding lightness.
Power comes from an L series and dual 44 Mikunis. Looks like Cusco camber plates too. I’d love to get a spec sheet on this car.
Slide behind the wheel and into those grippy Bride buckets. Stack gauge cluster (I want one!) to help keep an eye on things. There’s CF in the interior too… check out the headlight and wiper pull on the right side of the dash! THAT, is some attention to detail.
If someone has more pictures or info, send them to me! I’d love to see more.
Oh and vote for me guys! It isn’t quite J-Tin, but it’s a job that combines my love of writing and cars!

CrewDawg15 over on JNC posted up some amazing pieces of plastic that he’s been working on. It’s a home-built OS Giken TC-16MAII being fed by twin 44PH Mikunis! While the TC-16 is known to power some awesome Bluebirds, this particular engine is going into a scale Fairlady roadster. Sweet!

Clearing off my desktop of all the pictures I’ve accumulated.

What better to compliment those gorgeous Recaro seats that I wanted for Christmas, than a matching interior? I guess I don’t have the backseats to restitch like this 510 sedan, but some matching door panels would be nice. I’ve spent the night searching for someone who carries the vintage Recaro fabric, but it’s tough to find. Anyone got any leads?

Dec 4 – JDM Datsun Bluebird – $8000 - (Kahului)
1970 JDM RHD Datsun Bluebird Coupe w/ sr20de (non-turbo) motor. Vehicle registered in Hawaii but plates are in storage. Call XXX-XXXX for more info.
- Location: Kahului
- it’s NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interest
This is the second time this guy posted this up on Hawaii’s Craigslist. I have no idea how much Bluebirds usually go for, but with an estimated 20-25 Bluebirds in the United States, you can be DAMN sure there won’t be one in your neighbor’s garage.
I NEED this car. Once again, donations are accepted to the Kyusha Kai fund.
Pics are from the last posting.
I really wish I lived on Maui so I could take some proper photos and get the specs.
