midnight is on a distinguished road
Default MZ21 in the U.S.

Hey everyone, I just picked up this soarer a few weeks ago. I've been chasing down this particular car for over a year now since it was imported into the states. My persistence paid off and now I'm living the dream.
I come from the mk3 supra/yota scene so the soarer is somewhat familiar territory.

She's currently my daily driver,( as I have no other vehicles)

Future plans include an engine swap of the jz flavor.and period correct jdm parts. I'm building this car on a broke college student budget, so it's gonna take awhile. I love my new z20 and I'm looking forward to learning more from this forum.

I'll post pics asap

Here's a video of the car while it was still in Japan.

Nice car save up and mod it nice the first time, you could always mod the original motor as you got plenty of easily accessible go fast bits over there.

^^^ Thanks , the 7m seems to have seen better days. Plan was to either find a rebuilt longblock, or go jz and hang onto the auto till I could afford a 5spd conversion. 5Spd jz swaps are exspensive out here, let alone rear sumps.

Here are the promised pics:

TV Screen is awesome, I think some MZ21's had a feature that allows you to plug AV Leads in, allowing you to connect any device to it to view the Video.
