AMS 280Z 2JZ

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.

RB26 E30 BMW

Thanks to Jeroen from Speedhunters for kindly throwing this build my way. Once again, everyone’s favourite car (or should I say, the Internet’s favourite car), the E30 BMW, get’s some major lovin’. This one’s getting it’s new heartbeat from Nissan’s finest, an RB26DETT (with both T’s removed and replaced with one big T). Purists look away.

Z31 300ZX Drift Car

Thanks to an anonymous reader for submitting this build. I remember reading this exact thread a couple of years ago when I used to visit the Body Shop section of ZipTied religiously. This is definitely one of the coolest Z31’s in the world, lots of custom work and who doesn’t love the fighter-jet instrument panel!? So unique and badass.

Nissan Pao

I can’t explain why, but I’ve always loved these little cars. I think its the quirky retro styling that does it for me, and the fact that they look so cool when modified. I was Googling “Nissan Pao” when I came across this website showing the progression of a Pao being smoothed, painted and dropped. The end result looks fantastic…

S15.3 RB30 Supercharged

The generous parts interchangeability offered to enthusiasts by Nissan is a beautiful thing, from the old Datsun days to the cars of the present, it’s as if the bean-counters at head office have always secretly been catering to the people who love to modify by transforming the local spare parts counter into a virtual buffet.

Here we have a true diverse mix of the Nissan bloodline. Take one S15 Silvia, the front bodywork from a 180SX, an RB30 bottom-end/RB26 head, a supercharger, stir vigorously, and this is what you get…

6666 S13 Sil80 Drift Car

Many of us have seen images of the Nascar-inspired 6666 Customs S13 and S14 sitting low and mean at a Japanese service station, but it seems the rest of the world was slow to react in adapting their bodykits to our own S-chassic cars. Scott from Japan Import Car ltd took it upon himself to build a world class drift car using the delectable fiberglass pieces available from 6666. Watch him turn this regular S13 into a tyre churning smoke machine to compete in the ProDrift Series.
