G is for G-nose and G-nose is for me!!

I have to have one!  I am convinced that my next Z will have the G-nose front end.  I love it.  As an ancillary bonus, it does provide aerodynamic benefit so it will be in keeping with my desire for a streetable track machine.  Here are some of the better looking G-nose examples from around the internet.  How can anyone say no?

JCCS IS ALMOST HERE!!

JCCS is just around the corner!  Just a couple weeks away.  Registration closed as of August 18 so if you haven't registered yet, you're going to have to get on the waiting list.  ARE YOU READY?



Lots of cool stuff to see and a lot of cool stuff happening too!  JOHNNY MORTON is going to be there!  He of the racing domination of the Trans Am series in the 70's with 510s and Zcars!  He is a must meet for any fan of  Datsun!

Race Video Friday.........510 VS 240z at Willow Springs

Another in cam from a Datsun.  This time it's a 510 dueling a 240z around Willow Springs.  The 510 keeps making runs on the 240z but the larger displacement Z pulls away on the straights.  Good stuff, check it out............................

RACE VIDEO FRIDAY.......All Datsun race at Watkins Glen

Hey there everybody!  It's another awesome FRIDAY!!  I just finalized a deal for what I hope is the last z Car I will ever own!  Stinger...................

As for today, this is the first installment of  "RACE VIDEO FRIDAY".  I think this video is a very appropriate video to begin this series.  It's an in-car video taken during an all DATSUN session at Watkins Glen.  So cool.  It's neat to see all the different Datsuns running around the track together.  Z cars, Roadsters, 510s, TOO COOL!!  Looks like a lot of talented driver's too.  What a special day that must have been.  Wish I could have been there!!  Without further a due, here's the video of that great day, 12 minutes of pure Datsun joy!!

Do You Feel Lucky....Punk? Well....Do ya?

Clint Eastwood was a DattoHead!! I was cruising around the internet looking for some new Datsun stories and came across this cool picture set at http://thethrottle.thechive.com  .  So, apparently at some point Clint Eastwood and James Brolin raced in a series with this Zcar!  The car has 'Gene Hackman Crew Chief' on it too!  Check out the pictures, it's really set up.  I sure would like to give this cool, clean racer a run around our tracks!!
