More from memory lane:
_ first set of Wats (15x8 & 15x8.5 as I recall)
_ Euro bumpers before they became NLA from Nissan USA
_ ZG flares from Les @ ClassicDatsun in Vista (CA)
_ eBay score of that year: NOS 432 style exhaust made by Trust/GReddy
_ Japanese taillights & headlight covers I had picked up in Japan at StarRoad on a trip out there
_ Fairlady badges & 432 style mesh grille from Nissan USA
_ I had triple Weber 40 DCOEs on the original L24 at the time
_ A whole lot of rubbing compound and elbow grease
_ No side glass - I don't remember why it was out...
Right around this time I missed out on a genuine Nissan NOS box of all the ZG front end parts that was advertised on craigslist in NorCal - Can't win them all, right?
Still want to do that conversion some day... LOOOVE the ZG front end....
Pics at Fort Ord during Monterey Historics 2002
_ On the beach just north of Malibu... lol... Yes, I got stuck immediately after the pic was taken... Got a quick tow out from a passing 4x4
_ I was working for General Motors' North Hollywood design studio at the time, and coming home from work was at the receiving end of a 4 car pile up on Hwy 134. First two cars were totaled without bodily injuries, 3rd car got pushed into me and flattened my chrome bumper... For the relatively small amount of damage I sustained Mercury Insurance of the guy who started the chain reaction never paid to fix my car... lame... oh well ...
