NZ Performance Car 253, January 2018


The crazy conversion Issue


The spice of life comes from being different, and in the automotive world there is no better way to achieve this than shoehorning an out-the-gate engine combo into your chassis of choice. For NZ Performance Car 253 we celebrate those that dare dance against the grain with three builds we’re sure are world’s firsts. How does a 20B-powered Holden HQ built for skids, an R35 VR38-powered Datsun 240Z, and a Nissan March with a VQ35 stuffed into the boot sound?   


For the more conventional we have the full run down on Fanga Dan Woolhouse’s 2017 Ford Mustang RTR, a 13B turbo Mazda 808, and a big-power 4G63 Mitsubishi Libero. Our event coverage stretches from World Time Attack in Sydney, to Rally Legend 2017 on the streets of  San Marino, while back home we cover the Waimate 50, and CHACHACHA’s first Coffee and Cars.

But this is of course only a taste of what you will find inside the 104-page NZ Performance Car 253 ... the crazy conversion issue.
