Lonestar's 210

Postby Lonestar » 20 Jul 2014 17:03

Ok, so here it is, my 1979/80 round head light 210. I've had her for a few years now and have done some stuff to her. Not what I've wanted too but I try. At oen point I was going to do a SR20 swap but things fell through but know I have a NapZ motor that will get there once I get the green light from my girl. She's fighting me on swapping out the motor. Til then, here's some pics.

How she currently sits

Pic of the JDM rims I'll do once I get tires.

I think the A10 cross member will bolt right in and give you the proper mounting for L or Z series engine brackets and isolators. If going Z will it be a Z24??? The A15 5 speed had a terrible 3.545 axle that a Z24 would love to twist.



oh, and needs a touch lower.

This is my 1923 C-cab hot rod, 383 stroker with wide 15x15 rims in the rear. It's tight fit but a fun ride.

Oh yeah! It's the Z24, at least I think that is what John said and no worries, I got a h190 end from a 200sx to go under it. :D Now to find that cross member. :|

Yar, even the 383 chevy as a little trouble breaking those road huggers loose but those tires are 350 a pop so I try not to squawk them too often, ya know?

And the only one major flaw my car has...I dunno how bad this is but it's part of the 210's subframe.
Image I think this what lead to factory grill breaking a tab for no reason one day. I have yet to have a body shop look at it so I dunno how bad it really is yet.
