All Japanese Classic car show

The japanese classic car show is this sunday, april 26th 9am-3pm!! I seem to miss it every year, but not this year! I’m sure my expectations are a tad too high but I’m still really excited, plus it’s gonna be a nice warm day and it’s at the beach.

the true japanese classic

The GC10 skyline GT-R

If I were to EVER do a full restore of a classic car it would be one of these. they are rear wheel drive, of course, with independant rear suspension, have a 1998cc 160hp straight 6 S20 engine with dohc, and a cross-flow head.

as it turns out these cars are very expensive, I knew they were pricey but wow, a real gtr (kpgc10) can range from $35-$90k by the time it gets here… but you can also go the GT route which will get the you the same body but a different motor L20, very closely related to our 240/260/280z’s, which is nice since parts will be more readily available then the s20 rare dohc. but even these Gt versions will still run you a landed cost of $20k+… maybe less if you import your self and are frugal… but you might end up with a real POS.

maybe a datsun 510 is more up my price range 😛 or maybe I should go toyota…

iflip. Cheap, fun, low investment = happy motoring

I flip cars and that’s all i do, maybe I like the hunt more then the kill?? no, I just want a car that does what it should. I liked the wagon for 3 solid months, same with the cressida…building cheap, neat, unique cars was seeming to make me happy. but when you spend 3-4 times the money and end up with more problems then the beaters gave you is just lame.

here’s some cool pics of cool, fun, unique cars that make me happy to look at. altho some are into the $$ range.
