A 73' Datsun 1200 stationwagon rusted out wrecked road car, ripped apart and rebuilt as this, it has a lightweight tube/galv sheet metal body, with original diff, suspension and steering components as well as brakes, engine and even the steering wheel. It sure is fun to drive but still quite tricky and tail happy because of its SWB layout, pretty quick too, hellova lot faster than the original car. Its great on gravel roads and in paddocks, if you wana go past 50mph you'd want to know what your doing because keeping it straight at those speeds is a challenge, that's what makes it so adrenaline pumping and it's bloody good fun. This engine has been thrashed and beaten most of its life. Previous owners (when the engine was in the car) apparently went flat-out up the road in 1st gear to try and blow it up but failed. These little Japanese engines, trully are legendary. I re-wired it up a few years ago (when I was 12) and it was built about 30-35years ago and never misses a beat, runs on stale fuel and starts every time with no choke, doesn't smoke at all except a bit of blue smoke from worn valve guide seals on start up.
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.

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

2014 Nissan Sunny Facelift | Comprehensive Review | Autocar India
Nissan created a fair size sensation when it launched the Sunny back in
2011. This big-on-the-inside car delivered plenty of roominess for the
money but it was soon overshadowed by more attractive and better equipped
new cars. Nissan is now doing all it can to reclaim lost ground and this
new feature-rich and facelifted Sunny has been specifically tailored to
meet the requirements of Indian car buyers. So is it now even better value?
