  1. Hi Guys, Just a quick hello as I've just joined. I've heard great things from Neil, and after seeing and liking his R35 GTR so much so I decided to buy an R35 GTR just like his his 😁 I've put some pics on of my GTR

  2. Well ok, it was quite a familiar one - had a text a couple of days ago and met up with Gasitup at the local Petrolheadonism club night last night. It was great to have a catch up finally in person and hopefully he'll make a return to the forum soon. There was also a recently restored Datsun Z there.

  3. Met up with Jeff, Joan & Paul this morning as planned and whlist it wasn't quite as warm this morning as we'd hoped, it was still nice enough for 2 hours to fly by enjoying a coffee or two in good company before our rumbling stomachs hinted at the fact that it was lunchtime. Good to meet you Paul and to see you as always Jeff and Joan - here are the obligatory pictures to share - Paul's stunning 370Z Nismo, Jeff's georgeous 370Z in Daytona Blue and my GTR.

  4. gasitup and I decided to head down to this yesterday last minute. Lots of modern hyper/supercars mixed in with some classics and an eclectic mix of car clubs and individual show cars. Here's a few pics: And finally may I draw everyone's attention to the pic below. You have to zoom in a bit to see on the left gasitup hurridly cleaning his dirty car whilst on the right is my clean car. That is all.

  6. My thanks to those who came to the event yesterday - a fair drive for some of you, I know. Entry to the venue was a little chaotic, but worked for us as we were early to arrive. Once parked up, we had over an hour to see the aircraft up close and get food and drink before the crowds arrived. It got very busy indeed by mid-afternoon, but I’m pleased to say that the cars got a lot of interest, parked as we were on the pedestrian route from the music/stalls/refreshment areas to the aircraft static display. I think we should make every attempt to attend next year and I just hope that the date does not clash with anything else. Jeff.

  12. Thanks buddy, I will remain to play lol! I just felt that somebody else would be more deserving. I have 4 cars and love tinkering. The Z was just so perfect and a lot of money for little gains. I just bought a Honda Civic Type R as a rebound car lol! Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

  14. Welcome to the forum. The 09 to 11 plate GTRs were the best IMO as Mizuno was uncompromising in the track set up and they were before track editions and nismo came along. Enjoy the car it really is epic.

  15. Was a fantastic day and the weather was even kind - thanks for organising Jeff. There was plenty to see and do - here's a few of my pics: Then as Sarah alluded too, something a little orange and racey appeared. Lando Norris' McLaren F1 from last season: And it wasn't the only race car there. Ash Sutton and Jack Goff's BTCC cars (Ash Sutton's still had the damage he got from battling at Thruxton on it): Then there was the opportunity to sit in the pilot (or co-pilot's) seat in some aircraft like the C17 below: And then the one I was really looking forward to at the end of the day and marshalled finely by Jeff - my GTR with the C17: This one I love ............

  17. Good to meet you, Paul - thanks for organising, Neil. Next time we should do food as well because I still haven’t come down from the caffeine yet! For the Nismo fraternity, those really are V1 wheels on a V2 - and they look gorgeous!

  18. So latest instalment in our story. Legal paperwork arrived and our dream of having a micro pig as a pet has been dashed - yes I know this breed of pig doesn’t exist really and is very 80’s but a restriction to the deeds of the new place states “No pigs”. Anyone got any random restrictions on their property? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  19. We have 2 dogs, a lurcher, Jimmy, from a rescue centre, we originally rehomed along with a staffie cross, who we sadly lost at the back end of last year. Our lurcher started being sick after meals and losing weight. So after a few trips to the vet they couldn't really find anything wrong with him and suggest he might be missing our other dog and be a bit depressed and suggested getting a puppy. Well we're well past having the cute puppy phase and all the work that goes into getting one and after looking around decided to rehome a 3.5 year old ex-racing greyhound. So we added 'Fagans Margaret' or Maggie as we have called her, to the family a couple of months ago (2 wins and a whole host of 2nds to her name). Unfortunately what hadn't registered with us was that as a racing greyhound she basically lived in a kennel and had very little fuss and attention and not as domesticated as a normal dog would be. She's also quite big and a complete nutter, so we have effectively got a 3.5 year old puppy! Our other dog has stopped being sick and regained all his lost weight so at least that had the desired result, even if we now have ruined furniture!

  20. Committee, after much discussion, have taken the unusual decision to defer the 2021 AGM until 15th January 2022. At the time we needed to book a venue for this there wasn’t much certainty regarding gatherings and it was decided to allow a couple of extra months for everything to recover. If you have any questions or concerns about this please direct a PM to either myself or JeffW the Club’s chairman. Thank you all for your patience and we look forward to seeing you all in January 2022 Sarah AKA Chilli Red

  22. I stumbled upon this informative video on youtoob earlier - as a Nissan newbie (ish) still I learnt a few things about the Z history and timeline. But, the one surprising thing I learnt is that Datsun was a sub division of Nissan, initially not allowing early Zs to be badged as Nissans outside of Japan. For donkey's years I always thought that Datsun just changed its name to Nissan, for whatever reason!

  28. Cheers John, I always thought it was only a crime to leave the scene of someone was injured. I think the likelihood of finding the guy will be slim at best and I'm sure the police won't be the slightest bit interested.

  30. So who else is up for this fantastic event then? Only just over 2 weeks away and would be great to have a few more people there from the club. Looking at the above, it looks to be a packed and entertaining day.

  43. OK, ready for this bunch of reprobates? This is Ellie, our old girl who is over 20 years old now: And Albie (AKA big grey git when he wakes us up at 3am howling), our younger cat (12 years old) adopting a typically crazy pose: Add our dog Dexter who is 9 now (butter wouldn;t melt): And then whilst not strictly pets I guess, our 2 horses (which don't live at home!), Murphy the old boy and Rocco, our new yearling (who's gonna be huge):

  44. You are right to doubt him - the claimed difference in 0-60mph is 15% not 50%. A simple misunderstanding but you'd think if you are going to plaster yourself on Youtube and have any respect, you'd get the details right! (And 50% would mean a 0-60 time of about 2.6 seconds - depending on model of 370 of course). Should mean though that it's going to be c.4.5 seconds for the 0-60mph dash.
