    Tamiya Nissan Fairlady 300zx Turbo

      I was never particularly enamored with the 300zx – around here in Southern California they’re fairly rare and I know some people consider them legends on the level of the Supra and NSX.

Day 2 was long but satisfyingly productive. I can barely function by…
