In one of the largest car shows on the west coast crammed full of supercars like the new NSX, Ford GT, Ferrari LaFerrari to insanely modified GT-R’s, Autozams, and brown manual AMG Wagons... This Datsun stole the show. Highlights below so you can tell me how wrong/right I am.

Panasport wheels, wilwood brakes, and a presence that’s felt long after you leave

A thing of beauty. I’ve never wanted to pick one of these up and restore it so badly. Look at that engine bay and tell me you don’t get all warm and fuzzy.

Here’s a pretty insane GT-R that is apparently static. The carbon fiber pieces are polished to the point of being usable mirrors.


Cue the “ew, tire stickers” comments in 3...2...1... This build is pretty gnarly. 14 year old me would have been drooling. Rivets, flares, decals and a turbo with more displacement than 90% of the engine options available in Europe. Have a few detail shots.

A few millimeters shy of one inch. Yes I measured ground clearance at a car show and yes I just mixed units. Come at me, internet-bro
I’m considering replacing my rear view mirror with a polished chunk of carbon fiber. Weight reduction and whatnot
Trunk mounted wing... Huh. I’m starting to think this might just be a show car. Maybe.

If you’re on the other end of the spectrum in terms of Nissan enjoyment, here’s a fairly unmolested beast to calm your passion-rage.


Still need some eye bleach? Too much jdm for you to handle? Okay grandpa... Hold on. I’ve got just the thing. Feast your eyes on this lust-worthy German.

How my camera managed to completely erase all signs of the insane amount of metal flake in this stunning paint job I will never know.
I don’t care who you are, that is a clever plate

Now, I know what you’re thinking.

“he goes to a show loaded with supercars and all he gets are pictures of 3 Z’s and a shitty wagon? Boring!”


To which I reply, you’re dumb and probably need your online privileges revoked but that’s okay because I’ve got a few other special cars to make sure everyone leaves happy.

Yes, it’s gorgeous. Yes, it’s owned by an octogenarian. No, it’s never driven anywhere other than shows and an occasional cruise of the “local strip”. Snooze.

First American car. I was hoping for a Charger Hellcat, but alas it wasn’t to be.

Child for scale

What is this behemoth and where can I buy one for under 2k.

This is the worst picture I took, I wanted the badge. For those of you who don’t know, this is a toyota that came from the factory with gullwing doors. Because jdm yo.

Import car from japan

Throw on some Volk Te37's




And lastly, I found this downright incredible Miata parked next to an okay S6 that really, REALLY needs you to know that it has AWD.

But yeah about that Datsun....
