@Kazumi993 Looks like something private-labeled from BC. I loved everything else though. Single-Cam Sixes just sound heavenly.

Someone please photoshop a version without the flying buttresses, I'm thinking there's potential for interesting design work.

@morbias The problem is the very non-functional-for-intended-use drivetrain. Sounds great on paper, wouldn't want to drive it on the street.
Beautiful car though.

Favorite story in the last couple months, thanks for the look into this. As for similar shops in LA .... they exist.... if you know where to look (for example, here's a small part of a stash containing more than 40 2002' stuffed in one corner of building).

@Smiggins @AceAndrew2 Go immerse yourself into hotrodding to gain a better perspective of what I'm talking about. I can understand how you'd be in denial though, I was for a number of years.

This car has tipped the scales for me. Up until this point I've doubted that imports would ever truly join the ranks of hot-rodding in terms of quality custom work. This car however proves that this is possible while still remaining uniquely tuner.

@AlexAQ I hate to be a Negative Nancy but I'm with Alex, wouldn't touch that cage with a ten foot DOM pole, especially with that power. This car is "cool" but it suffers from self concept confusion.
Awesome Hartge's though.

Easily my favorite car you've featured in the last couple months. Call me crazy though, after having driven a couple F20'02's I don't like that engine in euro/japanese restomods.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Pro Touring The JDM Way
I love the fact it was running widened versions of oem wheels! It was very neat in person. While yes, there are other awesome cars of the vein, I think this one deserves it's time in the lime light (just want to see it behind some drag lights!).

@earmenau @RacingPast I get what your saying and agree up to a point. The appeal is somewhat less when you can no longer go to your local dealer and order up the same bits used on the factory race cars (like say... a 2.5L s14 evo crank).

Making something "better" by turning it Japanese as you describe is a bit ..... polarizing, which seems to match the intent of this project in general.

The armchair designers and internet whiners are alive and kicking even here. Such animosity still baffles me. It was/is certainly a game changer, even if those who were influenced by it remain in denial (a rather common ailment among desperate designers).

This is what happens when clever limeys drink too much. Not that that is a bad thing. I got a good chuckle out of the rover v8, this'll be neat to watch.

@iisaac This. The car doesn't ooz "perfection" instead it reinforces that "these hips don't lie". Would I ever make a car like this? NEVER. Am I glad someone else did for me to enjoy? YOU BETCHA.

I"m all for stories free of advertising and sponsors, but you've got to pay the bills somehow! Sure beats pop-up adds or chinsy male enhancement side bars. Shoot, go read hotrod, grassroots ms, or any other publication, same story. Think a group of people would spend 40 plus hours a week for the "passion" of it while they've got families and bills? Wake up whiners, reality is knocking.
Really like that clever stillen intake manifold.

This is a gorgeous car, very well though out (opposed to a good chunk of the monster cars featured). Product placement was a bit too much, but thankfully the car more than made up for that little nitpick.

Congrats on getting everything sorted Taryn! Wish the best to you and your hubby enjoying the Z to the fullest. There's a practical sense of reality about your writing that's refreshing amongst the over-hyped gibberish clogging the online automotive culture.

OK Dino, you've won me over with this one. I'm all for the OEM+ look, but this would just be a blast to romp around in.
Started with NFS II SE, but it was the new-and-exciting NFS Hot Persuit that got me hooked. Anyone remember the great jump on the alpine course (if driven backwards)? Loved the cheater cars..... the cardboard box, x-wing, ice-cream truck, etc.
