A Few questions Alan. FIrst of all what's that comming out of the cigarette lighter.
Second did those seats come on the fairlady Z only? if so are they as comftable and cool as they look. Is it possible to get them?
Third I've seen those steering wheels on fairladies I prefer it alot more to the wooden ones. well actually I like them both....
That's an accessory map-reading snake light coming out of the cigarette lighter hole.
The seats are Nissan "Option" sports items ( commonly referred to as the "Datsun Buckets" or "U0175" seats. The Japanese-market cars had the same seats as all other markets - these are special option part. They are actually rather hard and not all that comfy!
The steering wheel is also a Datsun / Nissan Sports Option part, and is commonly known as the "Compe." steering-wheel in Japan. They are pretty rare now, but Nismo re-issued them for their anniversary some years ago.
All the best,
That's a Japanese Shinto Bhuddist 'Omamori' - a small woven silk pouch containing a Shinto Bhuddist icon and a prayer for safety, usually bought from a temple at New Year.
Think of it as the equivalent of a St Christopher medal, if you like. It is intended to help protect the owner from danger, and they are often given as gifts to loved ones in Japan. They only have a one year lifespan, and you are supposed to return them to a temple to have them ceremonially burned at New Year ( and get another one........ ).
It's hanging from my light / wiper multi switch stalk.
