    Default Retro car kings segment on fairlady z

    What a neat segment It focused on a Japanese restorer of Fairlady Z's. Beautiful work . One of his comments fits with comments I have seen in this community. It is totally wrong to modify or go hybrid. Stay 100% original. Anyway if you can access Velocity TV, check it out.

    Yep, I saw it also. Velocity Channel, "Retro Car Kings", segment 281.

    It was a pretty cool show.

    We've seen this one here before, but thanks for the mention.

    They must really like what they're doing, if they work on a car for up to two years, and then sell it for about 20,000 or so.

    OTOH, I wouldn't mind that old guy working on my car, and maybe just a pinch of modern stuff to put it in-line with all the stories I keep hearing from people about how fast it was.

    OTOH, I wouldn't mind letting that guy do his thing to my car, with maybe a 'pinch' of the modern stuff to get things in-line with all the stories I keep hearing about how fast those S30 were.

    His race Z looked incredible, I wish more had been done on his segment and less on Rocky Auto, he was an artisan, not a restorer. The segment on RWB was pretty interesting too.
