Man. You learn something new everyday. Thank you heaps for posting that. I didn't know that if you grind off around the edges that will stop rust forever. I think he has been sniffing his mineral spirits.

        I'm going to make a foam car now and then I can also use it as a boat when fishing. Maybe it won't sink.

        Cheers Jeff. Gave me a good laugh to finish the day off.

David.

Very sexy car.
Always been a fan of the 710 or 160j. Unfortunately a car we got very few of here.

Yeah I like them too, but a little less resto mod. What motor is in it? Looks like an FJ24?

What's both sad and funny is that doing it properly wouldn't take that much longer, some day all that bog will fall out going over a bump in the road.. I feel sorry for the poor soccer mom who buys it next. :D

How'd you guys pick the FJ24? What are the external differences in the FJ series to pick between them?
Aren't the 24's quite a rare motor?

I was guessing because of the fact it was N/A and had twin solex/mikuni carbs on it. Pretty sure the FJ24 was built for the 240RS only? But I'm not an expert.

You cannot tell from the video or probably unless you are standing next to it, but as Gav said it is set up like a FJ24. On reflection a more correct comment would have probably been it is a replica. The chances of it actually being an original FJ24 are fairly slim.it actually has a rocker cover from a later model FJ fitted. I navigated in a Sylvia (Gazel) during the early 1990's and we ran an original FJ24 along with lots of other works parts. It was a belter of a car but like a lot of those cars was well stressed and alas we broke a few motors. All of the parts came from Reg Cook in New Zealand who had links with Nissan in Japan.

Thanks for posting that vid Jeff
Great to see the cars being built on "the line" rather than in post production workshop - reinforces the connection to the more mainstream product, something that is lost in most of today's competition cars.

Cheers

Had a bit of a chuckle to myself when they started talking about date stamps on the steel wheels of this 904. :D

LD28 block?, TC24 injected head, 91ron, 470fwhp... hi comp race motor with more power to come. It sounds huge, but those numbers are massive!

 

I thought the LD28 block was not compatible?

Very impressive little cars. I remember as a young fellow watching Bob Watson drive an a110 in what would have been the Don Capasco rally in Canberra in 1974. Then seeing Ron Marks running his R5 turbo at a Gold Cup rally here turned me into a closet Renault fan. I almost purchased an R8 Gordini as my first car but Dad talked me out of it getting a 1600 instead.

I would say he is a very good punter just trying hard. Looks like he's done some laps before.
