Updated first post with attached form for a feature car. If you would like your car featured just fill out the details in the form and send it back to me. I'll take care of the rest :).

LOL I either missed this comment the first time or ignored it. Well if you think our members would be interested lets get it typed up. Might be a bit more interesting if it had a 13b motor in it though!

Looking for a new car to feature on the home page. Its getting a bit stale there now. I've had a few owners I've emailed but agreeing to do one and actually getting the info together can sometimes take a couple of months.

Anyone know of a car to feature? Anyone want their car featured?

The Typhoons bottom end should be ready by the end of the year ( ;D fingers crossed ;D), the XW GT (replica) resto and engine build is about to start (I finally found a supplier of maroon basket weave  ;D ;D ;D) with the roof cut for the factory windback sunroof installation next Thursday (they do it in 1 night so that's a story in itself) and the Zeds at Lindsays so hopefully in a couple of weeks by which time the flares and wheels should be on also.

So either a turbo build, old school muscle resto and build or ZG/432 style fun around, or you could do all three and update it monthly as the other two builds come along, keep your feature section moving I guess for a few months.

Ok thanks guys. I've been in contact with the owner of a 400-500HP RB25DET Green 240z in the states, but he's a little slow to reply.

Gav, I think to do a front page on a 'real' resto with all of its trial and errors and victories would hit the spot with most of the guys who call this forum home.  We often see vehicles that either someone else has done the work or someone has gone out and grabbed a heap of strings attached finance and bought something already done.  Most of the guys are building theirs on the go and to feature someones car that has been helped along by members of this forum would be an encouragement to all.  Just my thoughts ;D
