Cars and Coffee

Post by James » 01 Feb 2014 10:12

So I convinced my daughter to get up early and run out to irvine this morning. Not early enough to catch all of the cars - but we got there about 7:30 and there were more Datsuns than usual.
She took some photos, so I am attaching them here. The IDX was garnering quite a bit of attention.
In person the Nismo car looks pretty good. The other seems disjointed……Might be colors but that was my initial impression. It was hard to get any photos of the two cars with the people around it…..

It was nice to see some nice 510's and Z's there (as well as a few skylines).

It was fun to watch everyone checking out the 510's more than the ferrari's etc…..

How large / bloated is the idx in person? If you had to compare it to another car what would it be closest to in size?

The IDX didn't seem bloated from what I could tell. It was hard to get a comparison with the amount of people around it, but I didn't get that impression.

Thanks. I can't get a good impression of it from pictures. I feel like it looks a lot bigger in pictures than it is in real life.
