At every Nissan-centric accident I’ve been to, I’ve consistently tended to focus added on the aboriginal models.

S30s are a favorite, the S130 anatomy can absolutely be cool, I like a nice 300ZX, and I consistently try to booty a acceptable attending at the old academy 510s that appearance up. And, naturally, I’m consistently fatigued in by any Hakosukas or Kenmeris that accept fabricated it aloft the Pacific. I’ve absolutely taken bags of photos of these cars, not to acknowledgment R32s, 33s, 34s, and added crisp ’90s to 2000s-era Nissan models like the S13 and S14.

These are cars that are badly accepted aloft a ample spectrum, congenital by drifters, appreciated by collectors, admired by drivers. Anniversary anatomy has caked its abode in automotive folklore. Nissan has consistently had a number of models over the years that continued this appearance of affordable performance, and yet, article is abundantly missing from my above list.

The Z33 and Z34.

There are a cardinal of affidavit why I don’t adopt these anatomy over added Nissans, but I should alpha in the aboriginal 1980s and move on from here. It seems the cars absent some appearance aback they confused to the VG30, but at atomic we still had turbos and angular administration via the Z31.

The cars got bigger and curvier at the end of the ’80s with the addition of the Z32, and the annual accolades followed. This model was called “Best Import Car” by Motor Trend; Automobile called it the “Design of the Year;” and Car and Driver called it one of its “Ten Best” for seven years in a row.

That’s not a bad resume.

But then, disaster. Okay, I exaggerate, but afterwards a five-year Z-car breach from 1997 to 2002, Nissan, backed abundantly by Renault and a new CEO, introduced the Z33 powered by a VQ35. Again, the car, and the motor alike, accustomed praise.

What absolutely mattered was that the world already afresh had a Z-car. But did we? I never absolutely bought it and I know I’m not the alone one who shares these sentiments. The administration is wrong, the car is too heavy, it’s a aberration from its roots, Nissan should accept acclimated a beeline six, the motor sounds awful, and so on..

You can acquaint the car was, in part, advised to new regulations and in such a way as to absolutely about-face a profit. These things are okay, and necessary, of course, but a new car aloof never seems to accept the address of article vintage.

However, it’s accessible that the 350Z and the 370 which followed accept a massive fan base. Today, earlier models are acutely affordable and action a abundant active experience. They accomplish for acceptable circadian drivers, clue weapons, and coulee carvers alike.

ROAD TESTING THE MERCEDES BENZ 220 SE SALOON 1961

ROAD TESTING THE MERCEDES BENZ 220 SE SALOON 1961

BY JOHN B. BALL – ILLUSTRATED BRISTOL NEWS.

THE NEW STYLED larger Mercedes 220 SE was first seen in this country at the 1959 Motor Show. It was, however, some time after this before we began to see this vehicle on the home market, and despite the fact that greater production has considerably cut down the waiting period, there is still a very great demand for this German de luxe car.

The 220 SE is the only production car in the world which offers fuel injection. To the uninformed, this really means that the carburettors are completely replaced by a fuel pump which injects petrol into the combustion chamber. The main advantage of this, of course, is that the injection timing is always perfect, and varies in relation to the speed of the engine. This not only gives perfectly smooth running, but also increases the brake horsepower of the engine, and gives a better and more balanced fuel consumption.

The exterior line of this Mercedes is dignified and elegant, and although it gives an impression of power and speed, could not under any circumstances be called ‘rakish’. It is six inches longer than its predecessor, and with an overall length of over 16 ft. must certainly be classed as a ‘big’ car. Upon entering the saloon, one must be impressed by the amount of passenger space available. In the front, two semi-bucket type seats give maximum comfort to the driver and passenger, whilst a broad armrest will fold away and with the insertion of a cushion, a third person can be taken as an occasional passenger. In the rear, three fully grown people could be accommodated in complete comfort without any crowding.

The leather upholstered seats are firmly comfortable, and the standard of trim and saloon fittings is extremely high. At the front, however, I was not at all impressed by the dashboard and facia. Although at first glance it looked extremely attractive, having a padded leather head and foot, the centre itself is almost completely dominated by the heater and demister controls.

The most important instruments are enclosed in what I consider to be a particularly cluttered cowl, which is seen through the steering wheel, but even this view is broken by the inner horn ring. This, I feel, is a particularly bad mistake, for in the normal driving position I found that I could not take a full reading of my instruments without close scrutiny, which, of course, must surely be a very bad point. The foot controls and hand-brake are nicely placed, as are the hand instruments and indicator controls. Mercedes have, in the past, no doubt due to their racing successes, been accredited with excellent performances, and in the acceleration field the 220 SE is no exception.

I found it was possible to go from a standing start to 50 m.p.h. in as little as six seconds, and a standing start to 60 m.p.h. (using only three gears) in 10.2 seconds. Maximum speed, which on the …

Crossley Shelsley – Saloon Car

Crossley Shelsley – Saloon Car

Crossley cars first competed in the Shelsley Walsh hill climb in 1910 and won it in 1912 – a sports version of the standard car, also called a Shelsley, with increased performance was sold from 1913; in May 1928 T. D. Wishart designed the Crossley 15.7 horsepower (12.7 kilowatt) 1,990-cc car; it had a top speed of 70 miles per hour (113 kilometers per hour) and fuel consumption of 25 miles per gallon (8.9 kilometers per liter): this car was made in 1929 for sale as a family car; it cost £495, about the same as the price of a semi-detached house in suburban Manchester

To all who visit and view, and – especially – express support and satisfaction: you are much appreciated!
