      Badass, swap-wise, but something doesn't work for me cosmetically... The wheels? The front end? The paint?

      I've seen them on ebay a few times, they are considered "universal"...there might be a better place to find them, however.

      Yeah... I'm gonna have to go with Vad and the SR20VE car here.

      Not that the 2JZ isn't badass, but drab green and huge wheels aren't my bag, I guess.

      I think it looks pretty badass, but you're right, there is something and I think its the front bumper... at least for me.

      Badass! The only thing I don't care for are the red stripes on the wheels, but even that's not so bad.

      Love it!!! (However, I agree with those who commented on the size of the wheels... I think it would look better with a smaller wheel size, maybe an inch or two smaller)

      I can't believe no one posted this meme yet?!

      Now 240/260/280Zs, go ahead and swap away! Nice big engine bay, for anything from a Honda F20, to 2JZ, to RB26, to LSx.

      Cool cars, though. I love classic cars with modern power plants!

      I would easily take either, but if had to choose would eventually pick the blue one

      good stuff either way though

      There is something fundamentally "wrong" with me when it comes to cars. This looks better than any modern $70k car I've ever seen. The only thing I'd change are 15x9 6UL's because I'm a cheap ass. That's an awesome, awesome car.

      Does he drive it to and from the track or is it trailered?

      Oh hell yes!

      Though if it were me I'd have kept the engine in the Nissan/Datsun family
