This is Tomica Premium Nissan Leopard. A close friend brought it over from Japan for 9$.

A quick glance at Fleabay and there appears to be a few people who'll sell you one cheap with free shipping too! :)

There's also the Vintage Neo range which is massively expensive but extremely good details. I think these are NLA though.

The new wheels and tires came in today. I got the seat belts and A/C working too. Next step is to fix the exhaust and oil leak, then replace the struts.

Those wheels are great, totally fit the look. I approve of ditching the stockers now hehe.

It was an agonizing couple of days trying decide on wheels. It finally came down to what I could get that would fit. I am going to keep an eye out for something a little more period correct, but I've spent years trying to find some of the more rare bits.

Pretty much anything that fits a Z31 should fit that. Including these period wheels or period styled wheels:

Enkei Riken:


BBS RS:


American Racing Equipment / ARE-398:

I think those Enkeis are being reproduced, I'm not sure if they're being reproduced in bolt pattern/offset Craig needs. That said, my local Discount Tire had some knock off BBS wheels that were 16x8s with 4x100/4x114.3 that looked pretty nice for $100 each.

Problem with the Z31 is they are 5x114.3, where the M30 is 4x114.3. I do like the Enkei/BBS/Riken style whees though.

Craig, non turbo Z31s are four bolt until 1986 when Nissan gave them the former Turbo hubs. All 79-83 S130s are 4x114.3 as are all 69-78 S30s. Most wheels for those three cars will fit.

You can also also swap on Z31 5 lug hubs if you want but you will have to convert brakes and such as well.

A week on and I am still liking these wheels. For once I think I got the size and offset 100% correct.

Screen grab from season 3 of True Detective. The friend I got it from had sent some of the cars from his lot to be extras during production in Northwest Arkansas.

Was thinking of your's when I saw it. Didn't realise it's actually the one!

Great series. Great cars.
