    My 9 month Hako search is finally over!

    Just picked up my 1970 KGC10 yesterday!

    After a grueling 9 months of rusthunting and seeing somewhere in the range of 40 POS kyusha around Japan, my search finally has a happy conclusion.



    More pics of the car and stories from the search coming soon.

    I think it was worth it in the end. My patience with the lying/idiot dealers here was wearing pretty thin though. Fortunately I found one via a private owner. :tu:

    No P unfortunately. Just KGC10 with the GT-R aesthetics like most of the cars around here.

    Here is a shot of what the previous owner threw in with the car. It felt like Christmas unpacking and sifting through this stuff. :mrgreen:



    All new window and door weatherseals.
    Custom ground cam (need specs from owner)
    Cam gear.
    Spare front bumper and rubber washers (not pictured).
    OER Carb jets and spare pieces.
    6 Pipercross foam airfilters.
    3 chrome filter housings.
    Set of spare air horns/venturis
    Spare doorlock knobs.
    Original headlights.
    2 Headlight buckets.
    Spare oil pan.
    4 suspension bushings.
    2 sets each of NGK 6 and 7 spark plugs.
    New throttle cable.
    New dipstick.
    New clutch kit and extra flywheel.
    New dash wiring harness.
    New polished Sanden compressor.
    Universal A/C unit.
    Coil wires.
    Exhaust studs.
    3 point seatbelts
    12 quarts of oil.
    Generic catch can.

    Non auto stuff...

    Yellow Tullys bear.
    Doll keychain.
    Japanese rock CD.
    Afro pick...

    And a few shots from registration day:

    Picking her up from the broker who was helping me translate and get around to see some cars.


    Recharging the R134 converted A/C system. It actually works! Old dude in green owns a Z and was giving us some advice about the cooling systems in case the A/C makes her overheat.


    Getting fuel.


    At the name change office putting on the new plates.


    Waiting patiently as I unloaded the spare parts.
