360HP STAR ROAD DATSUN FAIRLADY S30Z WALKAROUND
Come and take a closer look at Star Road's insane L28 powered S30Z Fairlady
that is literally the perfect mix of both the old and new schools. I walk
you around the car, showing you the immense amounts of detail that have
gone into it. It is currently developing a screaming naturally aspirated
360hp, revs to 8000rpm and includes one of the most impressive engine bays
you will ever see including a special custom carburettor/injection setup
that is monitored by MoTec engine management and a full Defi system.
You would struggle to find a better modern take on a classic like the
Fairlady anywhere else on the planet.

Honda S800 racing with Datsun, MGB and Mini Cooper
In-car video of vintage race at Roebling Road in Savannah. I finished 3rd
overall after finding a way past an MGB and a great race against a Datsun
B210. There is also some very entertaining footage of a fast Mini Cooper
leaving black streaks on the track as he slides through the corners.
Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

These Datsun 240Zs Are Animals to Drive
The only thing rarer than the sight of a Datsun 240Z in the English
countryside is the sight of two 240Zs in the English countryside. Spend
enough time on the backroads of Kent, however, and chances are Mel Streek
and his son, Ollie, will scream past you in their pair of Z cars.
Rest assured, you’ll have no trouble telling the two cars apart. The
“Ratsun”–so nicknamed for its rough exterior–belongs to Mel, though
after purchasing it he quickly found that he was seldom able to drive it
because Ollie was always in it. This sent Ollie on a quest for a 240Z of
his own, and he found it, in Copenhagen, in the form of a pristine 1973
model. This automotive odd couple can now be found barreling through the
country lanes in tandem.
Not that having his own Z has stopped Ollie from eyeballing his dad’s
car–he’d like to own both. After all, Ollie’s car may be easier to
drive, but it’s Mel’s that gets the attention of onlookers.
“Mine’s the one that actually turns the heads,” says Mel, smiling
For now, though, Ollie can take solace in the fact that these two Datsuns
seem destined to share a garage–if not an owner–for a long time to
come, as both of the Streek’s refuse to part with their 240Z.
