Saw this on facebook today, i think lucky posted it. I think it is quite awesome. I think it is a street fighter video game reference. Henry has confirmed that it is indeed a street fighter reference. Henry says Hi.
This car has been featured on Hella Flush and was awarded at the show in Milpitas.
It has about 90k on it and runs like a champ. Just passed smog 2 days ago and is ready to go to a new owner.
BC Racing Coilovers Enkei RPF1 18x9.5+15 215/35/19 I have both sti and wrx sideskirts Strut towers have been raised in the front to go lower without sacrificing no preload(work done by Gillis Motorsports). Quarter panel metal has been raised and rewelded by Gillis Motorports for more clearance
missing foglight caps(they should be replaced this week) fenders need to be repainted and they are beat up a bit. plastic trim on rear quarter panels are scuffed up from rim hitting them front bumper is a bit beat up as well. kinda old flip up stereo. 2 driver front lugs are stripped.
Asking price is $16k as is. He has stock wheels and suspension if you want it stock to lower the price.
So today i found myself procrastinating at a whole new level. Instead of working on shit that actually matters i thought it would be funny to paint my diff. I had Justin weld it a couple weeks ago so it was just chilling. I went ahead and wire brushed the shit out of it.
Then i primered it with some black primer i had laying around, this actually looked kinda cool. Very North Korean nuclear program-esque.
Too communist for me, I then used a color i found at the local hardware store that reminded me very much of Tiffany & co (or as Lucky likes to call it: "celeste" for whatever the fuck reason). Im digging the new color. haha.
Okay back to actually working on the car.
P.S. the cars:
P.S.S. Lowney's car from last night. Somebody get this guy some paint!
So today my goldfish of two years died. I'm pretty bummed out so i kinda want to get another one, or two this time. But maybe not having to worry about them dying would be easier. So the other day Henry and Alex set up a office space in the backyard and made it hard for me towork on my car haha. (notice Corey's GS in the background).
Then Alex cut my hair.
Yesterday Corey picked up his car that he was storing here, today we went to Corey/Bryon/Yuya's house to go pick up some wheels i purchased off Corey. The transformation of the GS was crazy quick. I love this car!
and then we chilled inside for a bit.
The GS again from inside the garage.
and the wheelios on my car back at home.
i hope to have it on the ground soon.
P.S. check out this awesome post Matt9000 made, i found it fucking hilarious as well.
As some of you know, Koyo Radiators was gracious enough to sponsor me with a couple radiators. They just sent me the press release on their new S30Z application. Looks pretty sweet! Just in time as my stock radiator has been leaking!
Koyo is proud to introduce an all aluminum performance radiator for the 1970-1978 Datsun 240Z, 260Z, and 280Z with manual transmissions. Koyo engineers have designed some unique features into this brand new model. Unlike the traditional downflow style of the OEM Datsun radiator, the Koyo performance radiator is manufactured with a robust 53mm crossflow core design. Another unique feature is the integrated 1/8” NPT female accessory fitting located near the top inlet tube. This fitting (supplied with a threaded plug) will accept a 1/8” NPT temperature sensor supplied with most aftermarket temperature gauges, or may even accept a coolant line for aftermarket turbochargers. Every Koyo All Aluminum Performance radiator is engineered in Japan, precision welded and polished by hand, and are a direct fit in the vehicle’s factory location for an easy installation.
Koyo’s global reputation for high quality cooling products begins with the selection of the finest materials. Koyo privately owns each factory, never outsources their manufacturing and overseeing each stage of production using Japanese made equipment throughout the production of each radiator. Koyorad All Aluminum Performance Radiators are hand assembled, precision TIG welded, and triple pressure tested throughout the manufacturing process contributing to reliability and uniformity. The superior quality of Koyorad all aluminum radiators will take your vehicle’s engine performance to the next level.
