Late getting this one up, but about a month ago, Z Con, a car meet for all things Z was in Austin. I didn’t get a chance to go to most of the events, but I did get to see the people’s choice car show. It was a great mix of different cars and styles, with some pretty special cars in the mix. My absolute favorite was the JDM import 200zr.
At a Nissan-only event, I was shocked to see only one S-chassis car. This one certainly held up
Yup, that’s RB Power
Z32’s would win the engine bay competition any day
More Z32 engine bling
VG30DETT in an S30
Fairlady Roadster, don’t see these too often.
JDM Nissan Pao. Cool little car.
RHD of course
Certainly glad the production model looked different, I’m not sure how much I like this one.
R32 GTR. One of my favorite cars ever. I think this is the first time I’ve seen one up close.
RHD JDM Fairlady Z
Walking up to it, looks like a pretty normal Z31 2+2
Until I saw the RB20DET, and then realized that was no swap. I was finally getting to see my favorite Z car ever, The 200zr
RHD Of course
The only S130 in the show, but a stunning example
Who doesn’t love triple carbs?
Lot’s of tributes to Mr K at this show, but this was the biggest.
Always had a soft spot for 510’s, and I love the well-worn look this one has
Powered by a ka24de. I suspect that’s more than enough power to be entertaining in a car that light.
Drop dead gorgeous S30
From the parking lot, there’s something special about an unrestored car that’s just kept on running all these years.
This one pulled up as I was leaving. Love the airbag setup on this.
