16" or 17"Watanabes (or similar), with ZG flares, L28ET or LSx swap, MSA type 1, 240Z bumpers, BRE style wing, Toyota front brakes or Willwood (AZC), 280ZX rear disc conversion or Wilwood (AZC), R200 with Z31 CV conversion, on coil overs.
Honestly, I don't see a whole lot of variety when it comes to how these cars are modified. Sure there is the occasional exception, but for the most part if they aren't stock you can bet there is a majority of common recipe parts involved.
I was talking to the other half about this last night. It was a one way conversation so let's say I was thinking out loud.
Let's leave the mechanical stuff aside for the sake of this topic and concentrate on the body aesthetics.
The most common mod is guards with contrast flares and wide rubber stretch-fitted on a deep dish rim. Most likely lowered for that coveted stance look. Dare we add an oil cooler with externally protruding plumbing like a wounded soldier with his guts hanging out? You've come this far so fender mirrors are absolutely necessary now. We also can't forget to add the 3 piece rear wing and a front bar that scrapes on every speed hump.
Just like that we have a 'unique' but same-same look. You're sure to stand out from the crowd as long as there are no other Z's around.
I'm not having a go at those that mod their cars. Hell, I'm not one to speak against mods with my car history. In fact if I had the cash I would be driving said unique car every weekend.
What I'm curious about is fashion cycles. Specifically, how long do you think this one will last and more interestingly, what does the fashion conscious Z look like 5 years from now? Will the flares still grace our guards and the 3 piece wings still keep our cars grounded? Will more plumbing spill out or will our cars age more gracefully and with some dignity pull up their socks and tuck in their shirts?
