not John Morton? and I believe he was using the full cover helmet by then.
Just not sure about the wheels, but it’s probably because I like bigger wheels😉
I’ve ordered some more Immense Miniatures drivers heads. But if they don’t arrive in time for the proxy race, Jame’s head will have to do.

When I get the car back from the proxy I’ll change the wheels. But they need to be original for the proxy.

The car looks really good. I put some Scalextric Sierra wheels on mine as a quick fix and it greatly improves the look. Seeing yours, I need urgently to repaint mine!

The original Z-car rules ! I had a full size one over 20 years ago, worked the L-series motor to the limit, went as far as importing an OS Giken 24 valve twin-cam cross-flow head from Japan for a five-figure sum... yes ! FOR A L SERIES ENGINE !! this engine ran a triple 48mm Weber carb setup... but eventually made way for a 383 Chevy small block stroker mated to a 5 speed Tremec and a Jaguar IRS diff. I'd eventually sold the Z and replaced it with my current R33 Skyline... but I've always loved my Datsuns/ Nissan's.

I was always been fond of the Z Scarab. I worked on a few over the years. I find the additional lines complimentary, although arguably, most are perpendicular to the classic Z shape/styling.



In H0, Cox and then AMRAC produced a handful of choices, which far exceeded the AFX and Tyco offerings IMHO. Over the years I collected a few of them, which only get parade laps. They have peel n stick liveries.

I saved this boot stomped version from a junk lot just to have a fun runner.
