I have seen:

 

Sand Rail with a Dual Mikuni fed L-20B

Alpine Sunbeam with a Weber Carbed L-18

69 Jaguar E-Type with an L-24 with stock SU carbs

Farm water pump with an L-16

And a few L powered MG and Triumph sports cars and one Fiat Spider with an L-18 SSS 


I am allergic to some pet hair, dust, avocados and annoying motherfuckers ! :)

There's an Anglia out here in the desert with an L20B and short 5 speed.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

I found a home made plywood covered tracked vehicle with VW transmission and '79 620 L20B welded onto it. Trees had grown up around it so it had say for a while. The L20B had a 71B 4 speed locked in first and was in the back facing the rear and I guess the trans/axle was driving the front wheels inside the track. Rad was full of green anti freeze. Got the engine and trans for the asking... had a matchbox too and a rough dash. I got everything.

What about a VQ?

 

VQ's are the tits, and they're cheap. Perfect swap for a high revving road race car.


...seems to me we are being held hostage by these candy-ass pussy, limp wrist, hanky twisting, girly-man, cry when Forrest Gump's mom died, crystal gazing, Om chanting, sandal wearing, whiny voiced, oh I broke a nail, fucks.

sunbeam alpine would be a good swap... the stock engines in those are shit!!!

 

there was a log splitter for sale around here a while ago with an l16 on it... 

 

MG's and triumphs sound like good canadates as well... sand rail or baja bug would be good... a lil extra weight out back would help the wheelie time :)

 

theres an Austin America I know of rotting away in a field, may be a good one for a L20b...

 

i'd love to get my hands on one of those Datsun jet boats too.

L series into B210 (current project)

L28 w/ triple webers in S13 (previous project)

L20b into S13 (played with it once)
CA18DE (fwd) into Nissan Stanza wagon

KA / SR / CA into S30 / S130 Z cars

GA16 or E15 converted RWD B210.

 

 

Non Nissan shenanigans.....

 

F2T (Ford Probe Turbo) swapped Escort GT
4G63T swapped early 90s Hyundai Excel

4G63T swapped early 90s Hyundai Elantra

4E-FTE (turbo 1.3L ~130bhp) swapped USDM Tercel
