Rocky Auto: Part I

IMG_9019 copia

I remember this day like yesterday. When I travel to Nagoya to see my friend from Shiomi Garage he took me to one of the most impressive garages that I have never seen.

I decided to make various post about this incredible shop because I have many pictures and post them in once will so much.

The first thing you find when you spot Rocky Auto is a parking lot. At the entrance there are many Z31 and some other cars still waiting for restoration, maybe some are just donors, or maybe this place is also like a museum that no even Nissan has. This first part of Rocky Auto is about that parking. The parking itself is very much than you expect.

This is as I said what you spot first, but then you get inside moving as best as you can for this kind paradise of nostalgic japanese cars. Let me show some examples.

S30Z x R34

Not a new concept although it is the first time I have seen one in person. These pictures are from a local car show I went to a few weeks ago. I took these pictures myself with my D50. This was my first time trying to shoot a show. Sorry if the pics aren’t great.

The swap was clean. I can only imagine what driving this thing is like……heaven is the first thing that comes to mind.

Second up is this godly R34 on BBS.

The rest of the pics will be posted on maraxproject.com be sure to check them out.

Motorsport Auto’s 2012 Z-car West Coast Nationals

Such a nice event coverage at JNC.com that we really recommend to visit. Here is just an example. Lots of old Datsun’s.

This year Motorsport Auto brought back the Z-car West Coast Nationals with a full scale show at their headquarters. The theme was “Back to the Streets,” the street being a closed-off stretch of Collins Avenue in Orange, California, just like in days of old.
