Not a Fairlady, but a Dragonlady. Get me a beer. High-five if you know that line from Gran Torino.
So perfect. The color, the Advans, the photography… everything. If I remember correctly, the owner is also a pro photographer.
I didn’t even know these existed! Starlets are rare enough, but a wagon? Wow. Hayashi Streets are all class under the flares.

There are a surprising amount of people who actually like this swap. S13/180SX with the S30Z front end. I don’t get why though. The lines of the Z front end are nowhere NEAR the lines of the S chassis rear, whether it’s the S13 or the 180SX. Apparently, there’s a company in Japan who makes swap kits for this conversion. Once again. Why?
I couldn’t find any information on this Z which looks like to be from an old issue of Turbo Magazine. Because it was featured in Turbo, I’m sure the motor is a complete animal, but the visuals… UGHH. It looks like someone welded a late 90’s Ford Taurus front end to the Z.
For the most part, I think head and taillight conversions should be left in the 90’s. However, there are a select few conversions that can be pulled off cleanly and enhance the looks of a car.
For Kirk… The Falken Tires S13.4 VIP-styled convertible. The Kouki S14 headlights compliment the s13 taillights as well as the boxy body. I would probably ditch the Sparcos for some Brides or Recaros though.
And the JDM Nissan Stagea wagon. Why can’t we ever get cool stuff in the states? Once again, the boxy body compliments the R34 headlights perfectly and the Bayside Blue paint from the R34 GT-R completes the package. Slam it lower on those Advan T5’s and call it a day.
