Auszcar members recently enjoyed a trip to Thredbo allowing members of NSW, ACT and Victoria to meet and greet and show off their cars in the sunshine. Nissan had contacted us prior to the event and asked if they could bring the one and only 370Z in Australia along. Of course we were happy to oblige. Read about the full story here!
A couple of weeks ago our Victorian members went on their second annual run of the Great Ocean Road. Arguably one of the best stretches of Ocean coast line in the world. Here's a quick review of the weekend for those who missed out!
The Datsun 240z and 260z Club enjoyed a cruise down to Mt Buller a couple of weeks ago. Dale (member Dalee) gives us a write up and a reflection on the weekend for those who couldn't make it (shame on you!). Sulio (member toecutter) puts together another great video of all the schenanegans. Sulio where do you find the time?
Before there was Initial D and before drifting was as popular as it is today. There was a cartoon comic making the rounds in Japan by the name of Wangan Midnight. Featured around the legendary S30 series Zcar known as a Fairlady Z in Japan but a Datsun 240z in export markets. The car modified by way of a triple carbuerated turbo charged L28 (L-series) engine. Recently released is a anime series based on the comic / cartoon series.
On the 4th of August a small convoy of Zcar's and their owner's headed down Victoria's Great Ocean Road. If you have never been down the Great Ocean Road it's certainly a worth while adventure and sure to please the driving enthusiast. Despite wet roads and mixed weather the guys all had a great time. Check out the video put together by Sulio (aka Toecutter).
Well known around the Zcar community and featured on almost any video site on the net these days. You can find a whistling, howling v8 fitting to an early Datsun 240z. Painted in a deep black the car was first seen several years ago tearing it up and from the looks of it barely managing to get traction with the sheer amount of horse power under the bonnet.
