Apologies, I got mistaken with the guy who built something in tribute to it and plastered it on facebook etc.

Where does that diagonal bar that the guy is resting his arm on end up at the front? Cool? looking vent setup.

The horizontal section of the roll cage ties into the upright that can be partially seen at the right of the photo. They used several versions of the air vent.

The bar that goes forward through the dash near the centre is what I'm wondering about.

It probably continues through the firewall and over to the D/S shock tower.

This should answer your questions about the bars under the dash..........

The above photo is of Andy Flagg's record setter and those B & W photos are of the #33 GTU BSR shell. They were on a roll of undeveloped 35mm film that was part of the trailer full of BSR parts we purchased several years ago.

The car in the B&W photos I’ve owned since 1980. There is a picture of the car on a Page 50 -Orange #39.Well funded National car. The pictures were from 1977 when it was built. You’re confusing it with Sharp’s car because the same fabricator built them

I stand corrected. After getting back home from working on my Z and switching glasses, I looked at the photos and I saw similar but slightly different angles. Not the #33 car.

gnoseZ, now that you have your good glasses on take a look at the Bonneville car again.  It's not Andy Flagg's car.  It's the 1970 240Z built by Nissan USA employees and which set the F/GT speed record at Bonneville in 1976.  It's part of the Nissan USA collection and was on display at the Lane Museum in Nashville in the photo posted above.  Here is a thread I started about it several years ago after I bought the items I included in the post.
