    Went out on a shoot with my buddy so he could take pictures of this car and decided to do a few of my own.

    That is sharp. Dyno #s? I have a good friend with an RB25 240sx.

    They all look great but I really like #3. It looks like they were shot on a runway, was it?

    Thanks for posting.

    I've actually been playing with this idea for awhile, but being a college student I can't afford to do it at the moment. However I may pick up the Z to drive around until I can do the swap.

    Nice i love the ol' datsuns. im currently working on a '72 510, its going to be my little autoXer. great shots, clean car. i hope to get my hands on a 240z or 260z and do a swap of my own. im thinking LS1 ;)
     
  11. My first cool ride in sports car was a 72 240z in HS. Very nice shots especially without using flash. I'll have to look up the RB25 details. Loive the pix.
     
  12. Nice stuff Barry. I really like the third shot. I don't know if I like the fiery exhaust or the dramatic sky better, but it is a great shot.

    What makes you think i didn't use flash?
    Thanks. Yeah i think the flame makes it more dramatic. If he hadn't done that i probably would have made the car darker so it would have been more dramatic with the sky.
    No clue haha. Look at the link i posted he may say in there.
