I just had to share this pic of the Kyusha Kai S30Z, it’s looking hard! The bright orange paint, the stripe down the side, the wheels, the lip, the stance, everything just works so damn well.
I wanted to take my 510 out for a drive today but the weather didn’t agree with me, so seeing this pic has sort of made me feel better, Datsun love!
Here’s a build thread I’ve been reading for quite a long time, and I’ve got a slight suspicion that a lot of you are going to enjoy it. It’s another build based on the “X-chassis underneath Y-body” formula, and this time the culprits are Mazda MX5 subframes/driveline/shock towers being attached to the body of a Datsun 520 pickup.
When it all comes together after a long and creative build process, Bob takes his DIY hybrid creation to the track and shows up some much more expensive machinery. Here’s a small snippet from one of his race outing results to give you an idea:
Position 3 – 1:08.886 – 1966 Datsun MX520
Position 4 – 1:10.366 – 2003 Corvette Z06
You can’t help but sit back and smile when that happens. Check after the jump to see how this track day sleeper was built…

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you had/have a great day and all the best for the holiday season, be safe on the roads.
Remember the AMS EVO X? Well the same workshop is now turning their attention to a Nissan 280Z in the form of a 2JZ transplant. The build isn’t finished yet but it’s just too good to wait. It’s being pieced together with the incredible quality of work that you can only expect from a top quality builder such as AMS Performance.
Thanks to Kyusha Kai for submiting, make sure you head over and check out his blog, it’s full of oldschool jdm goodness.

Iggy from Datnut is a fellow Aussie who also has an FJ20 Datsun 1600/510 project car. When I saw this BRE inspired 510 build over on his blog, I had to feature it. Whats not to love about a Datsun build?

I stumbled across some really sweet pictures taken by yosi from S1 Films Photography that he posted on the NWP4LIFE forums. Looked like an awesome meet…

Finally someone has given 510’s the rat treatment. Taking into consideration that The Bucket is the most popular entry on this blog, I’m assuming you guys like the rat/hood look.

It’s no secret I’m a datto man, so I guess it’s no surprise that I will be featuring Datsun content wherever possible. This 610 (also known as 180B in some markets) comes from the Ratsun forums. Aaron bought this particular car in 2006 for $300 in pretty bad shape, and as with most datto heads, only he could see its true potential.
