Default Speedhunters (meaning no one will click) - Resto-mod 280z

Resto-mod Z: Chris Forsberg's Datsun 280Z - Speedhunters

Quote:
There is a build style in the domestic world known as the ‘resto-mod’ where you take a classic car, like say a ’69 Camaro, and build it to look like a restoration but add in new or better parts like you would in a modified build. It combines the taste and attention to detail of a full restoration while still giving the car a unique character. Chris Forsberg’s 1975 Datsun 280Z is an excellent adaptation to that in the world of Japanese classics.

The car maintains the look and lines of the iconic Z but you can still tell it’s a street car that only Chris could dream up. Compared to his Formula Drift 370Z, it’s certainly not radically powered, but it’s still impressive all the same.

I am kidding, but in my opinion they ruin the car, it makes it look like a pep boy special.

Awesome build. The fender flares are a requirement on these 280z builds or you can't fit anything besides a wagon wheel in there

Ya I get that no arguement there. But at least make it look right, at the very least fix the gaps. I've seen other flares that don't look like they were a pep boy special (thanks @Blownbyyou)
