    Fairlady 432 on sale in Japan

    Now we're talking! with the proper wheels and close to perfect S20 details, well worth the $74,142.18. Now, if I had only won this weeks lottery, they'd be boxing her up for me.

    Datsun Heritage Museum to Open in CA

    Steve, Your photos are now approved. I'm unable to rename the folder to "Datsun Heritage Museum Grand Opening", so we'll need to leave that to Mike.

    Fairlady 432 on sale in Japan

    The Prince 2000GT is nice. $25,000 sounds ball park - But I really do have not a clue. Me thinks the 432 is a waste - for 50K, I'd want the S20 and the FS5C71A in place and the R190 too. That hardware is Really to hard to obtain to make a restoration feasible without it.

    Sakura rims F/S...got $4k lying around?

    These are very rare wheels. They are highly prized in Japan and fetch very high prices. The wide, deep offset models are the most expensive. So much so, that Hayashi has remade the widest models. The new ones are $800+ each wheel. the originals are more valuable. With the weak dollar, I figure that most likley, this set will sell and return to Japan. The vintage Japanese wheel market is not for everyone. 7 years ago I bought new SSR MkII's for $1,100. Now a new set will run $1,800+. Used SSR Reverse Meshes 7'' to 9'' wide are selling reqularly at $1,200 a set. I often buy Vintage wheels at $600 a set. I don't want Panasports and sure as Hell will never buy Chinese Knock-offs, even if they are $300 for four. But that is My tastes, My hobby - I'm a wheel whore, and there a bunch of us. To the Japanese Vintage wheel collector the The Sakura/Yayaoi are the holy grail. To eveyone else - They're as weird as Japanese Vintage Wheel Collectors! Here's my collection SSR MkII - 15X7 @ 0 Bought new $1,100 on the Z Adavan A3A Circa 1983 14X6 @6 $600 SSR Formula Star Circa 1980 14X6 @10 $550 Hayashi/Tecno TVR Circa 1979 14X6 @15 $500 on the 510 SSR/Longchamp XR4 Circa 1984 14X6.5 @7 $350 + $600 restoration SSR Bright Star Circa 1985 14X6.5 @7 $900 on the roadster Hayashi Street II Circa 1978 14X6.5 @9 $600 SSR MkI 15X6.5 @7 Circa 1980 $600 Hoshino/Impul D-01 Silhouettes 14X6 @12 Circa 1982 $350 I also have some Non Japanese wheels of note- but that's a different thread.

    Sakura rims F/S...got $4k lying around?

    O hell yea! And it's still growing. As evident by the stacks of wheels in various places throughout the house - the latest? A set of circa 1983 Hoshino Impul D-01 Silhouettes (here in the office) and a set of SSR Mk1's in the living room (more like the Datsun Parts wearhouse than "living room")

    Sakura rims F/S...got $4k lying around?

    Yayoi - Casted by Hayashi to become cult legends. I'm wondering which arm I need less. Pink wheels on a brown 510 - umm - Maybe if I painted the bluebird black.... Those are the Ideal offset... I don't really need to repair that retaining wall. Nothing vital will slide down the hill . Just a peice of my driveway.... humm.

    Hiya! How's the Z Forum been - Long time

    Rick, I said what I said and stick by it. I know a fiend from a friend. Mostly, my friends are fiends in some fashion or another. I hung around here for sometime, me thinks I addressed this group justly.

    Hiya! How's the Z Forum been - Long time

    Dam, I know all these people! Thanks. No, It wasn't the Iron Bottom, not it could have been the shock from the announcement that this year's event was the Last Iron bottom. Installing a windsheild in the 510 this weekend - and I think the roadster needs a dusting.
