Quoted from Atari_Daze:

Phucking A!
That's noice as the kids say.

Thanks Atari. Thats exactly what the kids said when spotting this parked somewhere, even before it was refurbished.

Quoted from orangegsx:

Sometimes wish I left my TT cherry red pearl looks great!

Nice to have a fellow Nissan Z32 owner in the club. She may not be CRP anymore, but the silver still looks very nice. Good luck getting it back on the road again!

Quoted from WolfManCat:

Shes back! After about three years of sitting at shops I finally drove my 1992 Nissan 300zx back home today. Holy smokes this thing hauls a lot of ass!
For those who didn't see my previous post, I purchased this in 2004 and sent it to Z1 motorsports in Georgia to have it converted to a Twin Turbo in 2017. Got it back about a year ago, sent it to a local body shop where its been sitting until today.
Going to upgrade the stereo and have the interior reconditioned next.

Man she's sexy!! Two members of our car group have those. One has an 1100 hp 2jz swap and the other has a big turbo LS. I never even knew that the LS fit in these cars but I'm not surprised LoL

Thanks! I used to be part of a NW Nissans group, it amazed at some of the crazy frankestien shit people did to these cars. My favorite was a 240sx dubbed the s13.5. It had the older s13 hatch back and cab but the front clip was the newer s14 style.

What the hell is that god awful thing on the back of that Cuda?

Well if you look around on the trailer on the ground you see the parts it takes to put the car back together. On the trunk is the GRILL... c'mon brother if you know Cuda's you can see that clearly. LOL

Parts are hard to come by on old mopars. Mopars are the hardest cars to restore because of the parts.

You have to keep everything!!!!

Quoted from dasvis:

LOL. Back in 1969 Dodge added a nose to the Charger for nascar racing and it made the car unstable at high speeds. Soooo ... they added a wing which the pitch was adjustable to keep downforce on the back. In 1970 Plymouth made the roadrunner into a wing car for Richard Petty. The car was so dominating that nascar banned winged cars for 1971 unless they raced with a small block. The cars got made because back then you raced the cars you bought off the showroom floor essentially and if you raced it you had to sell it. In 1970 you had to make 1920 to race the car hence 1920 Superbirds where created for dealers.

Daytona Chargers there was only like 560 made because in 1969 they had a lower requirement hence Daytona are worth more.

Well after about ten years of sitting I finally drove my z again. This time with a manual trans and some fresh maintenance. Of course it wouldn’t be a Z if it was easy. I did not choose to pull over for this picture lol.

Hey drfrightner, is that your shop? There's sooooo much room to work in. I wasn't certain of your prospects; very nice to see them in process.

Got the 350 on the track this weekend. One thing is for sure, that car is better than me.

I am bummed out that the new WRX STI just got pushed back another six months for release. I am chomping at the bit after I lost hope for the Toyota Supra to come out with a manual transmission. Love my STI and the only car that currently interest me is a new STI

I love my 19' STI but not sure how I feel about that one

#2122 4 months ago
Quoted from amxfc3s:

I love my 19' STI but not sure how I feel about that one

I am definitely interested in checking out the new model. After 18 years with the boxer, I do feel they need to change things up. I was concerned about them bastardizing the brand with a hybrid-glad to see that they are just going with a more fuel efficient version turbo to meet the future fuel standard requirements. I like the new body styling and I really like more horsepower(up to 400hp) and less weight-from 3527 down to 3417.

It will be really difficult to trade in my current STI-I am in love with it. I really enjoy driving it and it is the funnest car I have ever owned. I actually have had the thought of keeping it and trying out the new model at the same time. If I like the new generation-I can sell my old one, and if I don't I would sell the new one and have no regrets.

holden australia stopped making cars in 2017, i bought one of their last utes in 2016. a local friend has a 1953 built holden ute.

this wasn't the 1st holden ute but the 2nd model but same shape.

1981 DeLorean DMC-12. Have had mine since 2007. About 9,000 were ever made. Estimate there are about 100 in Ontario, 200 in Canada and maybe something like 6,000 total still in existence.

I've always ran into car guys in the pinball arcade world. I guess we just like anything we can tear apart and tinker with

Here is my pin hauler. I don't know why but as I gotten older I keep buying taller trucks. It's a real treat loading it up! I since added a topper so I can move games in bad weather. I also have a 2020 Terrain I can squeeze a game in when needed..

My 87 Buick Grand National. It's all show and all go. Alky injected modified pretty good. I bought the car with arcade game and pinball sales back when you could buy cheap and make a profit on arcade and pinballs...

And then there is my 1989 Pontiac Trans Am cream puff. 30K original miles all stock. The only thing changed was the battery and tires. 1555 of them made in 1989 to pace the Indy 500. The first and still only car that did not need to be modified to pace the Indy. As is was built is how it was sold. t-tops and leather was the only options and most were. Fun cars for sure. With the covid mess I didn't have them out much this year but that's just more time to work on the pins

Meh.... It definitely looks like a Z series, but it looks like a stripped down version of what the Z series could be. It almost looks *too* minimalistic. I feel like Toyota set the bar kind of high with the new Supra. The new Supra looks like a new Supra (if that makes sense). Now, if it has a manual transmission option instead of paddle shifters, it is the greatest new car released today....

Quoted from ralphwiggum:

I was thinking the same, I mean yes, looks like a Z but damn, almost nothing to the aesthetics of it. Is still a 'concept' though.
I've managed to see two new Supras and one new Vette, both are unmistakable!

#2140 4 months ago
Quoted from Atari_Daze:

I forgot about the Vette. Another example of how it still keeps the signature styles of the line, but looks like a new/stylish example. The new Vette is really nice as well.
