What's in YOUR garage?

Recommended Posts

Whaaaa!?!

What vehicle did the RB30 come from???!!!

Australian Holdens. Some older Nissan Skylines exported to New Zealand and Australian markets. Very common SOHC motor down there.

Here is my garage which I am in the process of insulating, running electical, and plastering to complete my "man cave". Eventually I want to get a Modine Hot Dawg gas heater. Anyone know of a good used one for sale? My daughters not too happy that I moved all her sports equipment out to the shed.

The Aussie spec R31 Skylines were made here in Australia, not imported. Not all Japanese cars come from Japan :) Nissan have had a manufacturing/assembly plant here since the late 60's. The first "Aussie Nissan" was the Datsun 1600 (P510), which was assembled in the same factory that assembled VW Beetles.

History lesson over. This is what's in my garage at the moment. 1969 Datsun Super Six. These were imported. It was given to me free, along with a parts car that you can just see behind the red one.

My garage has a '70 green 240Z (#157), a '72 white 240 VZ, a '72 lemon/lime 240 VZ and an '81 280ZX...actually they are in a storage facility.....but I think of it as MY garage.

Very, very interesting. The '72 - what a nice find! And I had no idea what an "SMZ" was before reading this writeup. Nice collection Bob!

When you get a few nice days - you'll have to dig them out and take some really good pictures. I'm sure we'd all love to see them.

HLS30 00157 is stunning.

FWIW,

Glutton for punishment?

"Glutton" is an appropriate term...when we start factoring in the added costs of living in the North/Northeast such as heating/winter apparel (heavy coats, boots, gloves etc), plus needing too replace the daily driver every 8 to 10 years because of rust, we must be gluttons...

Either that or...

The shutter on my Rebel XTi broke a few months ago. Finally got my new Canon 40D :) I took some pics of one of my dad's (Diseazd) garages.

Bringing this thread to the top cause I didn't want to start a new garage thread when we already have a great one. :)

Here's my one car. When you have a small garage, you learn quickly to use all available wall space. LOL

Nice Z!

Since you revived this old thread, I will update my list. My garage right now is FULL. I bought another Z this summer for LeMons racing, so now that winter is coming, I have two Z cars, my Toyota 4x4 and my wife's 4Runner as well as a ton of spare Z parts, lawnmower, snowblower, etc in a 2.5 car garage. It's quite tight, but everything is inside and out of the weather.

Quite the full garage you have! Post up your LeMons car. :)

I forgot to add a pic of the newest addition. This thing is awesome. Everytime I think of something that needs attention, I add it to the list. Needless to say, the list grows faster than I work! LOL

I always have a large white board around for the same reasons. It works great for my "Things to Do" list. We used it for the race car while we were building it.

The LeMons car was bought and prepped for less than $500 excluding safety items. The paint job looks amazingly good for Rustoleum applied with rollers. It's a 74.5 260 with 3-screw SU carbs.
