To kick start 2008 and bring you even better content than last year. We decided to introduce you with 3 featured Zcars this January. The real surprise though is that they are all owned by the same man! Guy Miller has the Z bug like many of us and has managed to bring into his possession 3 early Datsun 240z's. We're sure you'll love all 3 as much as we do!
It takes a man of talent to own more than 1 Zcar. Not because as the 240z ages it becomes more difficult to find one, or because the maintenance bills add up, or even that you need somewhere to store all 3. No it takes talent because more often than not we need to convince a significant other it's a good idea to own 1 let alone 3.
As the price of performance motors such as the RB26DETT and SR20DET drop. The option of slotting one into an early Z with an ageing L-series starts to become more and more tempting. For some like our latest feature car its the most logical choice especially when considering an SR20DET not only do you increase power output you also give the car a diet and loose a few KG's.
We realise its has been a while between featured rides at viczcar.com but we figured it was worth the wait for our next feature car. Engine swaps are always a topical debate, but when you can almost double the horse power while shedding a few kilograms at a fraction of a cost of what it would be to achieve the same power from an original engine it kinda makes more sense.
