Pablo has definitely put a lot of work into this car. He actually transferred everything but the exterior pieces from another S13 chassis. All the work, inside and out, he did himself. This particular car started as a stock KA powered car. In 2013 he swapped in a 2JZGE and in 2014/2015 he went to the current 1JZGTE setup. He really pulled off that Japanese style he was going for. As I said in Luis’ truck article, (https://exec-11.us/2016/11/21/luis-1970-datsun-521/), I’m really fortunate to be able to surround myself with really awesome people and Pablo is definitely one of them.

Luis had a dream of owning a Nissan D21 truck since his dad owned one when he was a kid. While looking for one, he stumbled across his Datsun 521. Falling in love, he had to get it! It came pre-setup with a few things and he added his own flair and parts line up to it. As you can tell, it’s not your average truck you see setup like this. Not only that, it’s really well kept and maintained. Currently, he has Mono Prime wheels installed and pictured, as he gets the Epsilon wheels, (one of several sets we’ve imported), polished. I’ll include some pictures of the Epsilon wheels in the “More Pictures” area at the bottom of the article.

It has been a while since I’ve made an update here at the blog. I have been extremely busy, yet stressed, with the moving process I’m going through right now. Everything is up in the air and I have no real answers. First, I was going to move to Salt Lake City then Virginia, also thought about Washington State again. I’m waiting on a response for a place in Virginia and I’m hoping to move there. I think it’s the most beautiful area of the U.S.

What is “Perfect Stance”? No one can really define that, when you think about it. Everyone has their own taste and style for every genre of “car modifying”. But when I think “stance”, I immediately think of Masahiro’s CROWN. I keep coming back to it because the ride height is so low yet the alignment isn’t super crazy. And on top of that, he’s static. There seems to be a lot of negative camber, but it’s not so much that you think: “How do you drive that thing?”or “There’s so much more rear camber than front, it must handle like a forklift.” Continue reading “Masahiro’s GRS182 CROWN”
The R34 skyline is probably what most people think of when someone says “Skyline”. It’s also probably the most sought after because it is not legal for another seven-ish years. Each person likes one generation over the other, it seems, but I like all generations in their own way. Continue reading “Yuki’s Skyline”
The S-Chassis is still one of the most popular cars to modify and I think that goes for any part of the globe. In the United States, 240sx cars have gone way up in price whether they are “clean” or “beat”. Most of them seem to be haggard for prices much higher than anyone would want to pay. But I think that is due to them being 20+ years old and for every car out there, you’ll have one crashed. And for these cars to be popular in the drift scene, these cars will only get more rare, really, by the week.
It seems I’ve been posting a lot of RX7 material lately. They are just really cool cars that have fun yet aggressive styling cues. I’ll actually be posting another really nice customer FC3S tomorrow most likely. Anyways, onto this beautiful beast. Continue reading “Yoo’s Mazda RX7”
