Living in NY by the ocean has subject most of the “classic” cars to an oxidized fate. Therefore seeing a Datsun Z in the condition of which the one below is in leaves many from this region in disbelief. Restoring a classic car is well and good but when a tuner takes the car to levels of which, at the time it was developed, unfathomable, it comes across surreal.
The 350Z motor has more potential than anyone would like to admit but like any tuner platform there exists an Achilles heal. It’s deep within the 6 cylinders, that is it’s pistons and rods. Known to only support around 400+HP it is great that Wiseco and Eagle have developed a piston rod combo capable of pushing the Z into a level of performance on par with many super cars.

When Nissan announced the R34 GTR’s retirement many Skyline enthusiasts’ hearts sunk but the debut of the R35 GTR raised their spirits very, very quickly.
To this day the Integra and Civic maintain their title as the most popular tuning platform, and for no odd reason.
It almost looks like this Acura Integra is stuck in time.
Dressed to impress, this full Voltex’d Evo 9( (8*?) appears to not only instill fear in small children but also pack a punch. Part of me wants to believethere is an FP Red or FP Black in this animale.

Can’t wait ’til more people start lowering their GT-Rs to an unreasonable, yet incredibly attractive ride height.
