    "The Orient".

    That'll be the place where these things were actually made, and where they already have the "Most Expensive Zs So Far", no?

    The 1971 Macau 'Grand Prix' was the auto racing equivalent of the bar scene from the first Star Wars movie. I think the photo I posted helps to illustrate just what a hotchpotch of classes and styles...

    I believe the car for sale is the same one that raced in Macau in 1971, but it has been heavily modified over the years.

    It's OK Kats, I was only joking about European mainland testing - although we know that did come later, and that a rally test car was certainly in the south of France in January 1970.

    Carl,
    If you think the 'Fairlady Z 160' emblems were a reference to the L16 then you are already barking up the wrong tree.

    As was noted in the source of the original photo, the '160' referred to...

    Yes, you're right. I don't think I put that very well did I? The L20 six got the 'A' suffix well before the L20 four arrived with the 'B' suffix.

    The engine your 1971 Fairlady Z-L left the factory with was called an 'L20A' by Nissan. The 'A' suffix was added to the L20 sixes when the L20 four debuted ( 'L20A' = 6 cyl, 'L20B' = 4 cyl ) in an...
