Love these old skool rides!!

I'm really thinking about building a 240z with a gnose front and body flares. I love the old skyline as well but not much of a real chance of me being able to buy one.

Anyone else love these older cars?



Here is a flared gold gnose

The original Z was a great car. i could do without the extra body parts though.

The Z is a special edition (or lookalike) 240ZG.

You can get aftermarket gnose kits but they are not common and tend to be fairly expensive. The flares can easily be purchased though.

they are nice and grabs attention, but i dont think they are as fun to drive as today's editions. I know some people are all about how many heads they turn and how much attention they get on the road, and thats totally fine. but these once revolutionary cars have long been surpassed by their modern descendants.

making a project car out of them is a cool idea though, best of luck

Very cool. I love the old Skylines. Like j_tso said, the Z looks like the ZG edition.

yah that hakosuka looks sweet.

btw where you able to get any pics of Kenmuri (1972-1976 Skylines)

im at work, the pics that i have of kenmuri are on my PC at home. so being at work, my finding is very limited.
but yah one of my favorites. One of my senpai for soccer team (kenji aka ken) who was in 12th grade had one when i was going to highschool when i was in 7th grade (1989). his was sweet looking, it was Gunmeta with Gunmetal Watanabe with chrome lip (like that picture of the fairlady you have rims.

I'm not sure if the 240z's in this thread are ZG editions. You can buy the flares and gnose replicas. They (gnose) are fairly expensive though. I asked Shine Autoproject to build it but they did not seem interested. They would sell a lot them because lots of people want it.

240z with RB25 or RB26 Man that would be sweet!!!
