I can't find a forum for kenmeri here.....

I just got me one from over seas.73 Nissan Skyline 240K GT Coupe.bought it from Australia Last year then shipped to UAE Dubai,did the Lt Hand Drive swap and shipped to USA.

She is at my house right now ....always wanted one and finally I bought one......

Nothing fancy just  a repaint,redo the interior and installed a 280ZX drive train.

Omfg Kenmeri, is my fave car ever, the styling even beats the Hakosuka when done right in my opinion. You should do it in racing livery, they look damn sexy in two tone, congrats you are now a Boss.

Simple, it goes in Other Datsuns and Nissans
Chrome door handles are under rated.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

If you die suddenly, can I have it ?


"All of a sudden it started making noise, then started losing power. I limped the car home and tried to get it up the driveway, the engine just died."

 

Why do people do this?

A $100 tow bill is never as much as the extra damage you cause by trying to "limp the car home".

 

Don't be that person !

Some Middle Eastern countries (Dubai/UAE is one) do not allow RHD cars to be road legal. 

 

Side note: they did sell these and the Hakosuka in LHD in some European countries. 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

Thanks Guys.....

I used to own 77 kenmeri back in Kuwait long time ago.(Late 70's early 80's).So I decided to pull the trigger on one.

I am about to start the triple weber swap and get it ready for 2016 JCCS.

Thank You for moving the post to the right place.

Just pulled the EFI system and started to mount the intake and the triple weber.
