100k!

 

Still feels like a brand new car.

I was heading back home from an appointment, when i noticed the miles counting down… 99991….99992
ok, ok, i’m not too far from home, maybe i’ll make it to my driveway…

99993…99994…99995…
shoot.. only at 280 / 87 (or somewhere around there)

99996…99997…99998…
ah ah! where’s my phone? okok recording… where’s the light, ok, light on

99999…

what? why are you turning off?! no no, wheres my car charger? WHERE?!

99999… 00000!

woohoo! after pulling over the side of the road, fumbling for the charger in excitement, I was able to record my first mile. Sigh, my first 100k ever.

Zpotted: sinister 300zx

i’ve always preferred the classic Z shape over other models, however, the black on black makes this 300zx look just cool. like KITT cool.

Re-solder Re-light

 

This guy’s a little nuisance – the headlight solder point attached the combo switch.

I already had the 280z’s column covers off earlier in the week┬ámonth because my headlights wouldn’t turn on (switch was broken), but now the wire when ahead and popped off. That white wire is an iPhone charger cable wrapped around the steering column to hold the wire down while I solder. Sigh – one day at a time…

Daily Datsun in a music video

At my brother’s the other day and noticed these chaps walking down the street while music was blaring.. Ah, filming a music video. Haha I think they got the 280z in there.

Which reminds me, where have we seen S30 (classic) Z’s in music videos?

Only one i know of is Far East Movement’s ‘Like a G6’ video

A quick Google search found Tiesto’s ‘Take Me’, which has a root beer 280z in nearly every shot. seriously! 4-speed, carpet dash mat and all. The Z steals the show!
