Sometime I forget I even owned this car but thankfully the new owner Mark has kept in touch. The above photo of the Sunny is from the Hutt Valley Motorsport autocross held on the weekend. Apparently the Sunny went great and finally turned a few tires into smoke in the dry. I can’t say just how happy I am that this car went to someone who is taking care of it and is shredding some tires, it makes all that hard work worth it even if it’s not me driving! Mark placed 19/43 entrants, between a silvia and a skyline, nice one Mark.
I believe it is currently in the process of being certified for road use although it was already certified for the suspension and wheels. Will keep posting on it where possible.
Credit to simply vanilla for the photos, thanks!

THE SUNNY TRUCK IS UP FOR SALE
Life has moved on for me and I can’t hold onto this any longer, time to pass this onto someone else to enjoy.
Below is the basic spec sheet. You will notice I haven’t given wheel size for the current set up. This is because I do not wish to sell with them. I have also recently jumped into an Keihin FCR41 carb setup for this car. As it is not 100% with getting the right amount of fuel to them, they will not come with it and I shall sell it with the factory EFI setup as a running, moving, sliding car.
I live on the North Shore of Auckland and you are welcome to come view if you are legitimately going to buy it.
Price: $8,000. I’m pretty firm on the price so don’t expect much movement.
I am not looking to swap it for anything either
Comment if you want to buy it, please no window shoppers

Lendich mustard construction yellow
Stainless steel monsoon window guards
Let me start this by saying that lendich construction COVERED this thing in rust proofing. That is not to say it doesn’t have rust but that the rust proofing is there. There is some rust though which I recommend having removed if longevity is the aim. There is a spot in the passenger side roof gutter, a spot in the rear quarter panel in the seam and some in the front scuttle panel. There is also surface rust in the tray. Overall it’s not the end of the world but it was never meant to be a show piece. It is crazy fun to drive and driving it is the main purpose.
Sorry I thought I had a photo of the engine bay complete, it looks mostly similar to the following:

Oh no, what have I done!
To be perfectly honest I was thinking about selling my truck this year and focusing on racing motorcycles… but something came up. Primal lust kicked in and here I am. They’re KEIHIN FCR41 flat slide carbs and they have me pining pretty fierce.
The unit has been sitting for years without use, after being in a S14 FL and then a rally escort project that was never finished. As I expected, the engine has a few issues, mainly surface rust on the cam lobes and I expect the bore too. It came with: a Cusco/Jasma exhaust manifold (which I will post about later), oil filter sandwich plate for an oil cooler, a Holley fuel pressure regulator and braided lines, a fuel line splitter, ecu, loom, and a modified coolant outlet.
I HAVE SOME 20V 4AGE ITBS ON A CUSTOM SR20 MANIFOLD FOR SALE IN NEW ZEALAND IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED

I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of over fenders on small japanese classics but there are a few that do it so well that you can’t help but like them! If you’ve been following beeoneoneoh since the days where I would post b chassis photos every day, then you will remember Teruhisa Inoue’s KB110. If not, feast your eyes on the TECHNICAL FACTORY aggression brought to you by the one and only Park (Mr. HIGHTOPFADE). Follow this link right here to see more crispy photographs of these beautiful body lines.
I follow about 3 different TECHNICAL FACTORY yahoo blogs but none of them feature this car in depth. When I find it I’ll post it. Thanks Park!

Thanks Chris for the photos! This was such a fun day, I can’t wait for the next one. Between motorbikes I’ve been getting along with fixing the radiator. I have everything I need, I just need to modify the water outlet to fit the thermo switch and wire that in and we’re good to go.
See Freshly whipped for more of the day. Come on Chris, get some more video up!
