  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
  4. Nice video, car is using some of @Sean Dezart's exhaust parts according to the comments.
  5. 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.
  6. 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:
  7. https://www.viczcar.com/forums/ Seems to be redirecting to articles? Saw it on my phone about an hour ago too.
  8. 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?
  9. Not how i'd modify an S30, but nicely done car and video. I recall there being a white Fairlady Z for sale on Yahoo Japan with very similar swap and modifications a few months ago?
  10. I believe it's a members car and was posted by him in this thread earlier:
  11. At 75k pounds it's in MZR price range, which would be a much fairer comparison to a Singer!
  12. Not to my taste, but TopGear Magazine have covered a 280Z modified by a Bulgarian tuner. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/classic/datsun-280z-has-been-completely-restored-glory
  13. Does anyone else cringe when people copy what Dave Scholz said in his Petrolicious video near word for word? Seen this a few times now.
