After 4 happy years thrashing an AE86 20V, my dream project has finally started. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Aardvark, my ’74 Datsun 260Z, a hopeless pile of oxidized metal, all chopped up and ready to accept a 300 bhp V6 from the late Nissan 350Z, and – perhaps more interestingly – the complete running gear from a Nissan 200SX S13.
This is a guest post, and as such, it should be both informative and hilarious; well, what could be more fun than hearing a Hungarian tying his tongue in knots while trying to explain the delicacies of a subframe transplant? So please give a warm welcome to this lousy first video of mine, showing the current state of the build. Please let me know in the comment field if you liked it (if you could even decode it through my accent), if you want more, or if I should rather stick to written explanations and still images in the future… (READ MORE!)
