Garage Miya 240zg

This has to be one of the most complete and stunning 240z’s in the world, add to that its a real zg and you have a very special car!

“The HS30-H Nissan Fairlady 240ZG was released in Japan in October 1971 to homologate the 240Z for Group 4 racing. Differences between the 240ZG and an export market Datsun 240Z include an extended fibreglass ‘aero-dyna’ nose, wider over-fenders riveted to the body, a rear spoiler, acrylic glass headlight covers and fender mounted rear view mirrors. The 240ZG was available in three colours: Grande Prix Red, Grande Prix White and Grande Prix Maroon. The “G” in 240ZG stands for “Grande.” Although the ZG was never sold outside Japan, in order for it to be eligible for competition in the US, Nissan sold the nose kit as a dealer’s option which is known as the “G-nose”.” – Wikipedia

Masaru Tatsuki’s Decotora

Check out PingMag for an interview with photographer Masaru Tatsuki. Talk about commitment; Masaru spent ten years with the truckers of Japan’s highways.

These trucks are unlike anything you will ever see anywhere else in the world. They are decorated with intricate paintings of landscapes, people and anything else you care to imagine. Though, it’s not until the sun sets that these trucks really blow you away with their fantastic fluorescent light displays. Combine this with the photography of Masaru Tatsuki and you have some amazing images and a great incite into the Decotora culture.
