Well, like any good rally car - she's now broke in! :D

No major damage I hope - the wheels I can see look realativly ok in realation to each other.

I'm looking forward to the updates - I can't get enough sounds of good L motors in the woods.

Sorry to burst your bubbles guys, but it has a KA24E now...

Here's the latest video. NSFW language. In my defense, I did just roll it over...

Well, we can add the Peking to Paris rally to the 510's accolades.

There's also a 240Z in the shots as well - looks like both completed the event.

Here's a short video.

This first set of four snagged from the defunct DQ site. Photos supplied by Mike Friedman.

"This was taken at the "Press On Regardless" rally in November, 1981. The driver was Mike Friedman (me), and the navigator Marc Goldfarb. The car was originally prepared for racing by the Z-Center in Clifton, NJ. I converted it for rallying with the addition of taller springs, KYB rally shocks, and a skid plate. The engine used a race cam and a Weber 45 DCOE carb with higher compression pistons. The car was hard to start, then hard to stop!!Unfortunately, this car no longer exists. When last seen it was more rust than metal..."

A few more period Safari pics.
1970 champs. Note lack of front flares. Did they add the flared fenders during the event? :
