  1. A few years ago Rebello in the US did a 3.5l L series using the LD28 block I believe. http://www.speedhunters.com/2018/04/the-3-5l-240z-you-didnt-see-coming/
  2. This is why that WA 1975 260z 2 seater could be a bargain to the right person, even at the 80/90k valuations that people on here were shy to publicly suggest. I can see the appeal to getting a cheaper running car and slowly improving/restoring it, but realistically it's not going to approach anywhere near the same level of restoration without taking it off the road and spending a lot of money and/or time. If the difference in asking price is so small, that just doesn't make as much sense and it kind of explains the prices of restored S30s of all types we've been seeing lately on the
  3. That transition is interesting, the general profile before looks fairly 350/370z and more S30 after your changes. I don't think it can hurt values given it's a totally different buyer. But good modern Nissans and Z cars should increase interest in S30s and ensure they remain relevant and interesting to more people in the future.
  4. New prototype looks a bit like a 370z with some S30 design cues on paper, but not quite sure about it yet- doesn't look quite right to me. Edit: After seeing the other video below, I partially retract this. It only looks not quite right in some angles.
  5. I think this is the first good look we've had at MZR Roadsports?
  6. Agreed, happy to help here too. Have you looked into using a VPS like DigitalOcean, Vultr, Linode, RackSpace over AWS? It would increase some of the maintenance hassles (probably can be partially mitigated by Dockerizing the site) but should be more affordable.
  7. I'm 5 minutes in and there's already been stock footage from Edward Lee's channel and a bit of Mr K lore. But sharing as Donut Media is a massive channel and that, IMO, makes this a "cool" Z video.
  8. I thought it was a pretty good article, minimal inaccuracies (that I could spot) and full of praise for the Z. I posted a link to the article on the literature thread:
  9. Nice video, car is using some of @Sean Dezart's exhaust parts according to the comments.
  10. No offence taken, I actually posted it before watching as IMO any S30 coverage on a popular YouTube channel is "cool" and worthy of sharing. I realised it'd be historically inaccurate after the focus on Katayama right at the start. It's interesting that there's some new bullshit in there though, I assumed that all of these videos/documentaries were just recounting the same stories from each other or the same source. Maybe the better share would have been his "Driving a Restomod Datsun 240Z" video which seems to have most of the same footage, but presumably none of the "history" parts
  11. Welcome! You might enjoy this build thread, a member on here bought a UK delivered car in Zimbabwe and had a no expenses spared restoration completed in South Africa:
  12. https://www.viczcar.com/forums/ Seems to be redirecting to articles? Saw it on my phone about an hour ago too.
  13. Try going straight to PHP 7.3 if possible, 7.1/.2/.3 each have a pretty worthwhile performance boost over the previous. Are you going to be moving the homepage into the Invision CMS?
