Looks brilliant. I'd take one of those over a K~~10 anyday, just for looks. ;)

Good luck with regs and all. I hope they can appreciate it like we all can. Cheers.

How did you get this legal in Cali? Is it because it was already registered out of state?

Mine had already been imported when I bought it from a private collector. However vehicles 25 years and older usually dont have issues. Well anything (smog exempt) pre 75.

It’s funny everytime anyone asks what type of car it is and I tell them Skyline. They always ask how did you get it legal? The m0torex issue sure did leave an imprint in people’s minds that all skylines are Illegal.

You have the silver c110 on classic z right? Have some recent pictures you care to share?

So here's a little update of what been happening w/the car.

When the car arrived it ran ok but needed a good tune so I decided to take the car to Rebello's. He tuned the carbs on my c10 and I was pretty happy.

He did a full tune, adjusted the valves, adj the timing, cams, re curved my distributor and tunned the carbs. They also tuned the carbs w/some computerized machine which I thought was super cool. His son Brian said it was to get an accurate reading of the air/fuel mixture. Dave is a perfectionist so he spent almost the whole day getting the job done correctly. They both took some time to teach me how to correctly tune my carbs for the future. Few pictures I took that day.


Image


While tuning my carbs Dave & his son realized there was a problem with one of the carbs. More about that later.

Image



I bought some new tires for the car. Unfortunately as discussed in another thread. The tire options available for 14" wheels is super limited. Because I was pressed for time I ended up getting a set of Falken up front & BFG out back.

Image


I took the c110 to wekfest in SF. Show was great, got tons of great feedback about the car. It was also funny the amount of people who came up to me & ask if my car was the "giveaway" car. Lol Here are a few pictures I found of that day. Oh & Drift86 saved the day again the day before the show. :tu: :tu:

Image

Image


Also I saw JdmPalace AMAZING car.

I also want to mention I'm going to start selling current & some back issues of Nostalgic Hero Magazine. I'm also working on offering subscriptions.

My shipment of Vol. 144 - 4/2011 has been shipped and should arrive soon. If your tired of going to the book store & them being sold out or your nowhere near by a Japanese bookstore well here's your chance to buy. I will ship anywhere Domestic & International. I will post full details on another thread tomorrow.

Orders can be placed by sending me an email : NostalgicHeroInUSA@gmail.com

Thanks

So got some work done on the c10 after the hwy incident. After removing the pan I decided to pull the sway bar and replace the bushings since they were so shot.


Image

Image

Image


This was the closest match they had at the speed shop I went to. I’ll have to trim the spacer a bit to make it work.

Image


Image




Since I will be doing some metal work I took the sway bar & the tray to get blasted.

Image

Image

Image


Once I get some time Ill get the parts installed.

Image


More updates soon. :tu:
