Congrats on an amazing build and many accolades. You have earned them!

I am currently working on a 1973 Corona MK2 4 door. Swapped a 7M-GE in, now building a Megasquirt.

After it's running, then body work. Long, long way to go.

Your car is an inspiration!

Wow, congrats on the magazine. :tu:

hey did you ever get a chance to get some close up pics of your front spoiler?

also, i may have missed it, but, did you get a drive shaft built of were you able to use one off another car?
i just picked up 2 1JZs and i'm thinking i may go with one of them instead of the 18R-G, just need to see what all i have to get/do.
one day i want to get a hold of a 2ur-gse though :twisted:

Thank you

I really think you should keep the car and keep chipping away at it.
Yoy got the hardest part already worked out.
bumpers are from a sedan with lots of work involve.

not sure if you're still looking for the bumpers, but if so...
they're the jdm ones, so it the rear has the center 'cut out' for the license plate, and the front has the signal lights in it.
http://page22.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l69743326
http://page22.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l69743308
the auction is about to end for them, but that's the 3rd time they've been posted...

and a few questions
Would you mind sharing the info with me on the radiator you have?
and for suspension, did you end up going with airbags? How do you like the setup?
I'm still debating what I want for suspension so I'm trying to weigh my options.
Did you have to swap the oil pan, or did you just want the rear sump?

In the nicest way possible, I hate you. lol
I'm jealous of all the attention you're getting. :lol:

Nice gauge setup, I'm leaning towards either the BB or Altezza gauges for mine, but if I keep the factory look, it'll be those same gauges.

LOL Thanks man :tu:

I look at it as everyone on here doing their part in getting cars some much deserved respect and attention from people who seems to think these were
cheap disposable cars. JNC and other sites like it are helping the cause.

Oracles, You have done an incredible job on this car. I have always been a Datsun guy...but am seriously considering going toyota!

Its funny I ran down to JCCS with only like an hour to look around, and soon as I saw your car in the distance I had to go straight to it.

Im a paint and body guy and I think your painter did a great job..let him know :)

Thanks Jack, I'll make sure to let my painter know.

I love all cars but have a soft spot for early JTIN's.
