Roadster Sightings

Post by Alvin »

Post your roadster sightings here!
Think of it as a "missed connections" listing to link fellow roadster owners

That is a nice looking car. I wish mine looked that good.

Will
Sorry, I find modern engine swaps revolting. Keep your G, R, or U series in your Roadster!

I think that Roadster belongs to this guy (looks about 50ish) who works at Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale. He's left a note on my Roadster and we've chatted over the phone. I don't think he belongs to BADROC nor active on 311. Unfortunately, I don't remember his name although I see him driving his Roadster quite often around my work (neighbors to LM).

4 years later...I was playing b-ball and this roadster motored by about 3 weeks ago.
Today, my little brother spotted this roadster outside his place and stopped to talk to the owner. He even took some pics!
It is a gorgeous '69 2000. Still sporting that hardtop. Owner's name is Lucas and now that he's met my brother I will go visit his house which is a few block away.

Solex68's and Shant's Roadsters sighting on the front page of http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/
Thanks for the tip from RoadsterMike.

Shant and I came along came to the Nissan Jam 2014 event in Costa Mesa last month. There were others, the Desirellos, who won best roadster but our cars look alright in this photo. LOL. Actually ours looked better than this photo would have you think.

Since the site will change...here's what it looked like today. Click on picture to blow up full size.

The site doesn't change, here is a direct link:
http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/2014/07 ... more-33307" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
It was a car show, so lots of roadsters would naturally be there?
Just below below yours is Gokiburix:

On page 1 Bart Desirello's SR-powered beast:

And Shant's sled:

Even some nice detail on his side trim:

So, do you think this would more appropriate to post in the Car Show thread called Nissan Jam:

Or will there be a ton of Shasta pics here, followed by the Solvang Show, JCCS, etc :D

LOL. I was so tired from work...I didn't even click on the link to Read More.
I saw Gokiburix's car but I didn't see him. I heard he might have been actively working the show.

I know Gokiburix because I bought some Minilites off of him. They never made it to my roadster as I resold them when I picked up my current set of wheels which were more Ready-To-Run. I also gave Gokiburix a firewall brace as I had an extra and he seemed like an good honest guy. Sorry to see his car for sale.

That is all fine and great. I don't get why you posted a picture of your own roadster. Or cars at a Nissan show of known roadster attendance. There is a Nissan Jam thread for that: http://311s.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22144" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This just made my day .... I guess I will be attending JCCS this year. Apparently there are people out there who appreciate our roadsters.
