Sunburst 240z | Jonathan Buhler
We had the idea to shoot Jonathan's Z with his fiance modeling in it (which
she is shown 2 times in the video), but with them being so busy with
college classes and definitely with Jonathan getting ready to graduate
prior to this video, we didn't have much time to film what we wanted. We
did manage to get some clips shown in the video just because they asked me
to do a photo shoot of them. Towards the end of their semester, we finally
schedule a last shoot to finish things up, but unfortunately we didn't
because of unexpected calls of Jonathan's new job at Nissan. So we agreed
to just work with the clips I already have and honestly I think it came out
quite beautifully even though it's a small video, but videos don't always
have to be long. So here's the Sunburst orange 240z.
This gorgeous sunburst orange 240z has been worked on for so long by
Jonathan and his dad (I believe this is correct information) and I'm pretty
sure they are proud of what they have built up to this point. If you have
picked up Modified Magazine's June issue in 2011, you would have seen this
car feature along with his beloved Supra. Here's the article from the
magazine which you could find here
"Jonathan Buhler has car-guy blood in his veins. His father bought this '73
Datsun 240Z back in 1979 from the original owner (the classic first owner
tale of a little old lady who only drove it to the corner store and back),
and on Jonathan's 15th birthday passed it down to him since it had been
collecting dust in the family garage for eight years. Jonathan's other
ride, a '94 Supra TT 6-speed, purchased from his uncle in California,
recently met a less auspicious end.
When starting to restore the family Z, there weren't a lot of well-known
sources for S30 parts, but thanks to his local Nissan dealership Jonathan
was able to put his Z back in tiptop running condition. But, of course,
Jonathan had bigger plans than just a basic resto for his Z. "What you see
in these pictures is nowhere near the end for this project, but only time
and my college budget will tell when it'll be finished," he says. "It
already has a lot of my blood, sweat and tears rolled into it, and I'm
particularly proud of the fact that I've kept the original L-series motor
in it." No RB or SR swap for this Z purist, and if you've ever heard a
modified L24 straight-6 on full song, then you know why Jonathan has
decided to keep his in service.
As for his ill-fated Supra, Jonathan tells us, "After getting it off the
shipping truck, I started modding it with anything I could get my hands on.
I tried not to go overboard, though, keeping the body stock and leaving the
stock twins in place, instead going for more of the stance look. I guess I
hit the spot because my buddy Mike Burroughs from Stanceworks did a blog
feature on it. Sadly, last month I was involved in a pretty bad accident
and the Supra is no more. This car really meant a lot to me and to see her
gone is heartbreaking." Hopefully seeing her one last time on the pages of
Modified is a suitable farewell."
"Why We Picked It (Modified)
One of the all-time great Japanese sports cars, Jonathan Buhler has done a
bang-up job restoring and subtly updating the appearance of his 240Z.
Although we're partial to the bumperless and fender-flared look when it
comes to classic Fairladies, a bit of a motorsports-inspired exterior would
go nicely with the roll bar and SCCA-spec SU carbs. It's still tough to
fault the clean factory lines and sparking Sunset Orange paint on

Today I thought I would update the couple of guys subscribed to my channel
with an update on the car. I just had it painted so I thought it was about
due for another video.

I have bought a new centre console and gear shift boot, and a whole lot
more, but for today, take a look at the new gloss Hiroshima Screama.

Revisited: An abandoned DR30 RS-Turbo Nissan Skyline
I used to see this 'abandoned' DR30 Skyline on the way to work. It was
always sitting there and looking worse and worse with each passing week.
A lot of people have shown interest in this car, but I have some bad news.
It's gone! I don't know where to, or when exactly it went. It's just not
where it used to be.

Nissan Skyline - HUGE FLAMES + Police let him off!
Kampala Kustomz modified Nissan Skyline R33
This was quite a spectacle to behold! Whilst standing on Sloane Street,
this R33 Nissan Skyline, with drove down and stopped by a few of us and
started shooting flames. I would never have expected the flames to get as
large as they did! Obviously, it's a very dangerous and silly thing to do
on public roads.
I don't want to get in to why the police let him go - something about them
not being able to do anything or charge him for anything - as I'm not
clued-up enough to make claims.
But check out @kampalakustomz and @tal_singh on Instagram for more of this
