Family Album Treasures: Fairlady Z on J.Boy


You’ve probably seen two or more photos used in this video before. The Fairlady Z S130 owner mixed his family album together with Hamada Syougo’s song Still 19 from his 1999 album J.Boy.

I also found a video clip of the song featuring J-drama queen Ishihara Satomi starring in Be-Bop High School:

I think I definitely need to find that J-drama now. 😉

Video: 1971 Japanese Grand Prix astonishing domination by Nissan

JPN (Edit 2021: Rocketpencil no longer exists) uploaded another astonishing video: the 1971 Japanese Grand Prix held at Fuji International Speedway!

It consists out of three races: the Touring A (1600cc) class, Touring B (2000cc) class and the Grand Touring class, translating into Bluebird, Skyline and Fairlady Z.

All non-Nissanians will complain I over simplified the outcome of the 1971 Japanese Grand Prix a bit. Yes there are indeed other cars (like the Mazda RX-2) but that’s what the main field and winners looked like: a dominating Nissan. Only later that year the Mazda RX-3s broke the winning victory streak of those menacing Skylines…

DOTS: snow covered Nissan Fairlady 350Z


A month ago I posted about this Nissan 350Z parked in my neighborhood. Apparently it is a regular or a new resident: I found it parked in the same parkinglot covered in snow!

So I quickly took some nice snapshots with my EOS/Helios combo. 🙂

Everything gets more beautiful when covered in snow:

The Z-logo looks even better when it is covered with a tiny film of snow:

Unfortunately I focussed on the indicator light below the logo and not on the Z itself. 🙁

Also the mirror looks a bit lost when covered in snow!

Last, but not least: what does the rear of the car remind you of? A Prius perhaps?

Maybe a bit mean, but when I saw the rear covered in snow and I tilted my head a bit it really resembled the silhouette of a Prius. 😉
