This goes well with the picture of the Z cars on the docks. So, brand spankin’ new 240z or new 510… which would you prefer?

Nothing much going on. Did a little bit of work on the wagon but nothing groundbreaking. Been hanging out with the infamous BKH808. Here’s some random pictures that I like.

By the way, have you guys checked out High Top Fade? It’s a pretty amazing blog.

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!

To whomever can find me the size and offset of the rear SSR’s on the Wood Village Z.

Snagged this off of sexy-man Kenny’s blog when he caught some historics racing around Laguna Seca. Tons of gorgeous cars but of course, old Datsuns are my favorite.

SOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!

I was browsing the JNC project Hako build thread and the age old discussion came up about the unicorn of all parts… the OS Giken TC-24 dual cam head. There was a lot of heresy stemming from last years SEMA show, when OS Giken had their crown jewel on display. Rumors of the head being remade and to be offered for $30,000 have been floating around since then. The rumors are true… and it gets even wilder.

Kev from JNC spoke to an Aussie OS-Giken distributer who confirmed that as of now, six heads cast in the 80’s have been set aside and all have been spoken for. One for a lucky Australian Z car nut, five slated to be delivered to U.S. enthusiasts, and a final head for OS Giken’s demo car. More heads are planned for casting with a current price tag of just under $42,000. OS Giken is also planning to sell a 3.2 liter crate motor complete with IRTBs and a header for a mind-boggling $90,000! 400HP at 11,000 RPMs? Yes please!

By the way, what’s the going rate for one’s kidney nowadays?

This Is Going To Get Interesting…

So I picked these up locally for a song. Seriously too good of a deal to not jump on them. 14×9 and 14×10 with 0 offset and nearly new 205/60/14r Federal tires.

Here’s some shots of my current favorite Z at the moment, courtesy of Inzane240, rocking 15×9.5 0 offset Epsilons in the rear.

I could get them to fit with max camber, a roll, pull, tug, baseball bat, etc., but I don’t want to. Probably just gonna sell them. Or stare at them until I find a car I can fit them on.

Find me info on this build here. Lots of trick stuff going on and I don’t remember how this photo ended up on my desktop or who sent it to me.

It looks like some kind of hybrid Stance coilover set up with custom control arms. I want to know about the strut tower bars and that under chassis brace. The bracings look to be Cusco, but I know the Cusco strut tower bar is symmetrical with the bends on both sides. The bottom brace looks like it’s Cusco too, but as far as I know, they only made front and rear strut tower bars. WHAT’S GOING ON HERE!?!

Seriously considering getting rid of the 510 and doing an all out build on the Z. I rarely get to enjoy the chance to enjoy either as I’m always too busy. I really don’t want to though, as the wagon is just so much fun to drive. Inzane240’s engine build does not help me make my decision at all.

This engine bay > Your life.

It’s been a while since I have posted anything S30 related, so here’s a Z that I think oozes class. It probably won’t be to everyone’s taste, but black with gold trim is always a killer combo.

Molded flares = Huge lips and wide wheels. Me like. I’m also really liking that gold painted taillight panel to match the pinstriping. I think this is the first time I’ve seen that panel painted in something other than black/gray. Kudos to the owner!
