I know but he was once quoted "if one day the speed kills me don't be sad for I was smiling" (something along those lines)

This is more than just a Hollywood headline, more than just "another celebrity bites the dust" story.  This affects all of us car enthusiasts in some way indescribable, maybe we won't cry like we would of a lost family member, but we are all sad.  Because of his role of one certain movie that we all love to laugh at, we all love to quote from, a movie that well all enjoyed. I will always REMEMBER THE BUSTER

The speed killed him, but we can be sure he was definitely smiling

great post on the Tomica shop! That was one of my highlights of my Tokyo trip, except I'm super jealous at the chocolate cars you got!

Assuming project cars are usually meant for track and weekend duties, and considering the term project would mean multiple modifications and an ongoing build, I would say the first thing is to make it light and improve the suspension.  Those are the easiest modifications to perform with the biggest bang for buck.  They make the biggest difference to how a car drives and one can start honing their driving skills and adapting to the vehicle.

Stick with something simple like a SR swap, it still will be considered very amazing, keeps with the Nissan theme, but most importantly easier to maintain and obtain parts compared to an RB (at least that's how it is here in North America, not sure what it's like over in NZ), however it must also be considered the additionals into running a modern fuel injected engine in the Z compared to just rebuilding the L28 and running carbs (essentially a build it and start it path)P.S. I knew something was different when I looked at the pics and then you mentioned about the nose and now that you brought it up in context I too am iffy about it LOL

I knew there was a reason why those roads in both the posts looked so familiar until you posted the Type One pictures up, because I was in the area too this past December!  I think I actually saw that exact same lotus parked in one of those underpass parking lots.  Too bad you didn't pass by Seeker, they had alot more cool cars IMO that Spoon did.  Actually if you continue to head North(?) on the same road past Spoon you might come across a shop called ECU Tune.com(?) at least that's what I think the name is as it was pasted in large words on the glass front doors when I was walking down that road on my Tokyo visit.  It's on a corner lot next to a used car dealership.  I remember seeing a very nice S15 and a E55 AMG being worked on when I randomnly stumbled upon that shop.  The owner was super nice too letting me take pictures around his shop and I think at one point he even offered me Silvia parts to take home with me (at least that was what I understood from our language barrier we had).  Thanks for posting this and letting me relive my Tokyo Speedhunting memories!

The reminds me for the very exact reason why I visited Tokyo this past December, I told everyone that I was going there just to look at the cars.  In fact I think I have a picture of that exact same Lorinser Benz you took, and maybe a few you might enjoy I took while walking around Shibuya.
