On a spur of the moment, I decided to visit Nissan Jam 2014 at Connell Nissan with Eric. I haven’t seen this many 240sxs buzzing around the vicinity for parking since Drift Day. Arriving at the last hour of the event, I expected only a few cars to be there still, but instead it looks like we were able to catch the whole show. I didn’t take pictures of ALL the cars that were there; just most of the ones that I thought were cool. So Enjoy!
And then there was this extremely clean R32 GTR. I know I’ve seen this car somewhere, maybe in a magazine or somewhere online. It’s just as stunning in person. I can only imagine how much ass this hauls once it gets going. Perfect.
So, if the purple R32 above is old school, how about these old old old school skylines here? These fine automobiles were so pristine, that they had two guys guarding them, one making sure that they stayed cool with the hand fan and the other guy to serve as a crossing guard for people walking past their vicinity.
Here’s one of the most tidy KA Turbo setups I’ve seen. Loving the X-Men intake manifold. Kyle removed the stock brake booster and switched to a brake master cylinder from Chase Bays, giving the turbo lots of room away from the brake reservoir.
I think the janitor at my elementary school had one of these pickups. I wouldn’t have ever guessed it was a Datsun. I was probably too distracted by the smell of beer bottles and b.o. coming from the truck bed. The wheels remind me of a cross between VW Beetle wheels and Captain America’s shield. I like the location of the gas filler. Seems like you’ll have to sit down on the ground to fill it up with gas. LoL
The 240Z above still had the original L-Series motor under the hood. I can only imagine how tough it is to maintain this given the age of the car. I noticed that many older Datsuns use triple carburetor setups, but this one looks like it’s only using two. H…how…how does that work?
If I had the pleasure of owning a 240Z, I’d make it look something like this car. It’s everything I could ask for from a classic Z — super clean body, awesome paint job, fender flares, and nice wide wheels. The only thing I’d probably add is a damn coolant reservoir tank instead of letting the coolant drip onto the ground. This car must run on off of gasoline, air in the cooling passages, and a good amount of sorcery.
It’s amazing how well the RB25DET fits into the old 240Z chassis. It’s almost as if it was made to be swapped into these cars. I saw this yellow Z leaving the meet as I was walking to my car, and it sounded so smooth.
After looking at all the cars from the show, Eric and I decided to take a look at the spectator lot. I knew this was a good decision, because if we hadn’t done this, I wouldn’t have gotten to see what it looks like to have a spaghetti maker as a set of wheels.
But of all the things on the car, this is probably the best. No, this isn’t a red dixie cup. It’s a horn, and not just any ordinary horn. It’s a musical horn. YES! LOL. Imagine strolling through your neighborhood in this car while horning the notes to some old movie like The Godfather.
