    I got one of the mesh grills from www.nismoparts.com just a few months ago.... Not sure if they still have them or not.

    It's actually http://babelfish.altavista.com that's doing an automated translation of the original Japanese page located here:

    http://page3.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/c36347537

    In other words, be glad you can read it at all.

    Here's what this site looks like in Spanish:

    When Fairlady is written in katakana, it comes out of that imperfect translator as fair ready. I dont think this is a case of 'engrish!'

    Thanks for the link to engrish mperdue - have to check this right out.

    Crazy RB26DETT Z31... very sleeper.

    I just hope the prices of these rare Zs dont increase too much, so I can afford one one day!

    yer surprising they are going for around 15k for a basic Z australian to around 40-50k for a good orginal, and around 35k for a perfect modded one, good priceing i think, if i were rich, id buy another.. haha

    but yer what most attracted me was the 2 door early skylines, they are going for around 15-20k with a worked L28 etc, thats what i am looking at. also theres a 4 door early skylines twin turbo triple mukini intercooled L31. looks damn crayz

    Chuck in "S30" into the Automotive -> Parts search and feast your eyes....

    Might not be a huge deal in the U.S with so many reproduction parts, but here, I am wondering how much shipping would cost

    I also love it how the translator has translated something like "classic, vintage etc" into "medieval times"
