Datsun 240z vs Nissan GTR
This is a homebuilt twin turbo " blow
through " system on a 409 cubic inch Chevy small block engine in a 72
Datsun 240 z. The car is Street Legal due to emission excemptions and is
used for cruising, car shows, and drag racing. It is a Sleeper since it

Matt Isbell's Ultimate 240Z
Years ago Matt told me how he planned to convert his Datsun 240 Z to a V8
powered road racer. He did and here its is. At times it seemed like it
would never get done as some suppliers and builders failed to deliver, In
the end he hooked up with MTI and the project got done. To put into
perspective just how fast and talented Matt and his car are It would take
an ALMS, Porsche, Corvette or BMW to lap Road Atlanta faster than Matt does.

Fairlady Z Build Updates
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.
Updates in this video,
New Paint in Gloss
More updates are still to come.
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.
Check out my new online blog for regular photos and news updates.

1972 Datsun 240Z run. (One last good time before I sold it)
Right before I sold it...
Clicking noise is a leak in the balancing tube (welded day after this
video) Some sloppy shifts due to slack in the rear end and un-adjusted
clutch with cracked clutch arm bracket.
I loved/love this car! So much fun to drive...
