Anyone familiar with it? Is it licensed by BRE? Or an unlicensed knock-off? How well executed is it?

Arnie,

It has been just recently that I have picked up on the "tribute" word. And my understanding is that a "licensed tribute" from BRE has only happened within the last couple of years. The BRE web site has not been up very long. I may be wrong, but I remember when Ron Carter built his 240Z "tribute" (his threads should be in the archives) and I don't recall his project being called a tribute. Rather, a replica. I'ld like to hear his comments on this.

Datsun / BRE Interpart offered a Trans-Am "tribute" package and we discussed this some time back when this literature was on eBay and this car was on eBay. It is my understanding that the optional equipment offered in this literature would be what is considered a 'tribute' and that we move on to the term 'replica' beyond that. The first time I heard about a licensed tributation from BRE was not that long ago and I think it was Ron Carter who explained it.

I also want to point out that the 240Z version of the gear shift knob emblem is pure fabrication and was never an Interpart / BRE item to the best of my knowledge. I have both the gear shift emblem and grill badge, however.

Arne, I don't know if it's well executed or not, but it sure ir purty. Are you considering taking a run at it if it's a near authentic repro? I'd actually consider doing the same if it was streetable and about 5-7k less, but it's difficult to say how much it's worth without seeing it in person and knowing a little more detail on it. For me it was always about either a 510 or a Z, but the Z won out.

No, I have no real interest or need. Just curious.

It seems like there are several BRE 510 "clones", "tribute cars", whatever you want to call them in the area. I always see one or two at every show I go to. Last year driving back from Canby I caught up to one on I-5 near Tacoma that looked like it was also headed back from the show. May have been the same car. Here are a couple of pics of cars from the Vancouver BC Nissan show the past two years. I don't know enough about what a real BRE 510 should look like to know how well executed they are (except the exterior paint).

I'm pretty certain your first picture is the same car, Mike. That has the same modern leather sport seats, and the red cam cover shown in some of the pictures of the car for sale.

That one was from the 2007 Vancouver show. Do you recall seeing a similar car at Canby last year? The one I passed returning from the Canby show looked pretty well done externally, similar to this one.

Honestly didn't pay much attention to the dimes at Canby last year. Looked at other Zs and chatted with friends.

But why? I think the dimes are great at that time. I even manage to reserve some but sadly out of budget.
