Here is the rest of the photos I managed to take before I had run out of room on the SD card….Naturally a MOPAR will start out 🙂
I felt this would have been just as good a Bumble Bee Car. This next one is a car I would want if I were a traveler
As I turned around there was an all Nissan Booth….lucky me
This looked like a beast and that it could set some good times on a track. It appeared to be a 930 slant nose
Yet another GT40 car
I have always wanted a Vette in this generation. This to me is the greatest of them all.
Here are others I saw while roaming around
I am sure the Stang fans will be happy to see these, I sure was.
Then to end the show with a beautiful car in its own right…a Pantera
til next time….
I stated in a post sometime ago I always had a Z car. Yet there was one car that I wanted but was scared of the age. At the time I was not mechanically inclined and to be honest, to this day I am no mechanic due to time, lack of tools, which equals lack of know how on some things. But I wanted a project car and thought it would be best if it were a car I cared about and really wanted regardless of condition.
Can anyone guess what it is? To be honest there are a few choices that stick out I am sure……ok how about this?
Anything yet? And the Navy banner has nothing to do with the car or will not hint as to what car this is. Ok how about this angle?
Right, if that was not a dead giveaway I am not sure what to tell you. There are only a few cars with the lines such as the ones I have shared. The next one will confirm you ideas…….
There is something that attracts me to all Z car models. The history dates back decades and was considered an affordable Japanese sports back then and still is. Most of their (Datsun/Nissan) Z cars had soul, spirit, life, or whatever you may call it when driven. One must drive one before time is up on this world to truly drive a drivers car…specifically the early S30 models (240z-280z)
For those unfamiliar with the Z Car history here you is a quick rundown….
Well the performance of my exhaust in power and in cabin noise could be better. So when the chance for a huge discount on some Motordyne ART Pipes came along I jumped on them like a cheetah on an impala!!! Those not familiar with these pipes can refer here…
I was imprest with detail as the insides have beed sprayed with a thermal barrier to keep heat inside the pipes.
Then for extra security they installed packing where the O2 sensors plug in. Purpose i see here is extra barrier to prevent a check engine light from appearing, incase the extending sensor tubes are not long enough.
as pleased as I am with the pipes I felt a little extra something was in order…
This spray is similar to what motordyne did to the inside of these pipes. The heat protection in 1500 degrees farenheit, and I am not sure how that compares to what they had already done. This is after first coat.
And final product!!!!
To prepare for this Texas heat during the track day I decided something may need to be done…
Keep in mind these are covered in plasti-dip because of the numerous road trips I make. These serve only one purpose and that is to force fresh cool air to the intake.
See…carbon, but not completely all as the backing in FRP
There we go now it is clean and no more bug splats…..wow…..I quite fancy it
Here you can see the true purpose of these inlets and the direction of the airflow
