One Man, One Love and a Whole Sunnys

One of the things I most about being an editor at the tuner mag ever is getting to you readers cars that I especially rare machines these Nissan Sunnys. The B310, or Datsun 210 as it was sold in the US, is a rare car to begin with. in Southern California where we an abundance of JDM classics, I’ve ever seen two examples driving.

Seeing them outfitted vintage old stock race anywhere outside of Japan is impossible, which leads us to the famous Sunny tuner Pit

Although I spend most of my reading Super Street, I’m not working on this magazine I’m spending time reading books (or rather looking at the and my favorite JDM pub hands-down is G-Works. For of us spoiled enough to live in LA a trip to the Japanese bookstore is all we to get our JDM fix. Each month features the most amazing cars Japan has to offer.

Features are towards the front, by in-depth tech and DIY articles and event coverage in the back. One of the I always look forward to are the (Japanese Classic Car Association) races, particularly the TS Cup Race I first found Pit Road.

The TS Cup is one of the more popular enthusiast events in Japan and is comprised of Sunnys (B110 and B310) and (KP61) and is run on a strict rule set to the playing field. The rules are written to encourage participants to their cars as close as can to the original race machines of the and even modifications like fluorescent paint jobs are unless special permission has granted from the JCCA.

It seemed that the Sunnys with Pit Road were at the front of the pack, often and setting the fastest lap of the race. It long before I was daydreaming of one day a Sunny of my own, and thus I scouring Craigslist for a chassis and myself with parts from Pit Road and body manufacturer Restored.

Soon after I realized although a chassis could be had for than $1000, it would over 20x’s that build the car to a level that approached a TS Cup contender. Alas the was put on hold but my admiration for Pit Road well intact and it wasn’t this year’s Tokyo Salon that the spark off again.

Although they are amazing over the past year had a massive influx of Hakosukas, and Fairladys and this year I wanted to step away the mainstream and find a classic was truly something special. I found the #22 Restored/Pit Road at the G-Works booth I knew it fit the perfectly.
