If interested, post some pictures of wheels that really impress you or you think would really impress us. New, classic, serious or jokes, let's look at some rides.

Yes it was. I had it up to 135 once and still climbing when I decided I might be going a hair too fast. That and I had a vision of what would happen if a tire blew out.

I wish I still had it. There were a few issues with it though. One was that it was really hard to find someone to work on it if it needed repairs. 4 cylinder with dual single barrel Venturi carburetors that were mounted on the side of the engine. Even Nissan wouldn't touch it. It was the predecesor to the 240Z. 

From Wiki-piedia:

 The Datsun SRL 2000 was the 2 seat roadster that made their name. Paul Newman started his racing career in one. It had a potent 1982cc overhead cam engine with dual SU type side draft carbs and a 5 speed transmission.

I was just looking for a car that got better milage than the truck I was driving. Came upon this and really liked it but I had no ides what I was getting. They were very rare, they had a 1600 model that came out earlier. Ended up letting it go because I had no place to keep it and couldn't afford to tag it so I couldn't park it on the street.

I would love to have that car back.
