NISMO CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF MAVERICK ENGINEERING

http://www.nissan-motorsports.com/ENN/PRESS/2014/14074.html

This week marks 30years of performance Nissan's out of Nismo in Japan..

This is understandably, all good things..

So since I struggled to browse something interesting that Nismo actually had involvement with; heres the next best thing - a 1984 Nissan! ..yeah!

I LOVE the DR30's, so have no problem with posting them again, and again.. as I have here, here, here, here, here.. and so on.

This 1984 Skyline 2000 Turbo RS-X is the top-of-the-line model. Its bloody gorgeous, frehsened up throughout, and somewhat-justifyably FAR from cheap - at just over 3.5million yen.

Grey over black, gold decals, and matching gold wheels; looking so sharp.
De-badged rear cleans things up a bit further I suppose..

The wheels are the somewhat recently-released GLOW STAR's by STAR ROAD Japan, wrapped in Yokohama S-Drives - which I feel have one of the nicest looking outer tread/block and sidewalls for a street tyre..

These wheels are made by Work for STAR ROAD. 15" dia only, and as wide as 12" -41 if you're keen!

Retrimmed wheel with contrasting stiching looks beautiful, and the original velour looks to be in great shape..

And the suitably tidy engine-bay, showing off the FJ20ET twin-cam four so well. Said it before and I'll say it again - one of my all-time favourite looking engines. Love the wrinkle red, wide cam cover, and long intake runners..


..I really should buy one of those cam covers to stick on the wall...
