Haha babies will do that, just look at how much updating I've been doing (just had a baby in september).

Does the datsun have sticky tires in the rear and not so sticky in the front? Drag Car?

I still love the look of the supra. That car will never get old.

Fresh all season stock sized tires up front and 225/55/15 R888R's out back. Great tires, super sticky, love them. Not really a drag car but a nice weekend cruiser.

Supra is in the shop now, ive gone with a t56 tremec after making r154 slushy and doing a few changes.

I'm waiting on the warm weather to start back up with the datsun and the other cars.

Boy.

No more Nissan engines?!?!?!?! That makes me sad. Well if you have any spare VG parts lying around you need removed, let me know. I got me a new 87 NA Z31 project and may eventually piece together a NA2T kit for it, but I think I kind of like the simplicity of a NA Z31.

Awesome.

I'll give you all the parts i remove from the shiro as they aren't original anyway and it was an NA-t build.

Awesome man. You just let me know when and we can make a small day of it. I'll drive the Juke (yep, still got it, that damn car isn't going anywhere!) down to ya and I can admire your collection. Really want to see that Datsun, that thing is so cool.

Don't know when I'll get the Z back. Dropped it off at my shop on Saturday to get quite a bit of work done.

Sounds good brother. The baby has me really busy but i do spend a lot of time at home lol.

Here's a quick video of the datsun running as my Wife got me a gopro for my birthday. Nothing special as it needs a tune but it drives okay.

Friggin awesome. Yea our son was born on the 3rd so we have been really busy at home too. I actually got my Z back on Tuesday. Running pretty good but lots of little issues to start working on like the speedo and gas gauge not working.

That thing sounds so good. I bet you got some looks as you passed people lol.

I am changing the fuel sending unit to the new style and I am doing the seals for the speed sensor pinion. Hopefully that fixes my gauge issues.

Maaaaaaan I've had the fast car itch for some time now..... your videos aren't helping.

Also- if you've got the Datsun, you don't need an E30 with a similar engine swap IMO. I'd venture to guess they'd scratch a similar itch. A guy on the E30 forum has a pretty fun roadster build. He daily drives his E30 and his roadster is his play car.... so maybe I'm wrong about the above. But he also doesn't have the other awesome collection that you have. PS, I finally found an FD roller locally buried in a 90s car/parts goldmine. The guy won't sell yet. I'm working on him, though, so maybe someday it'll happen.

I need an e30 because i love how they drive and look. I wish i could afford an e30 m3 ;) And FD rx7 would be another dream car for me! Except without the stupid rotary.

I also looked over that build and look pretty sweet!

Last thing to mention is the new addition to the stable. As a wedding anniversary gift i bought a 1997 m3 sedan in techno violet for my wife to drive.



Going to clean it up and change a few things. Turbo or supercharger down the line.

Not a bad pickup. How's the shiro doing? I am looking for front 87-89 spindles so can finish up my coilover project on the Z31 but they are not easy to find anymore, and I am starting to get a power itch so I might start piecing together a NA2T turbo kit if I can find parts for really cheap. The new baby is really cutting into my car funds.
