We are fans, hobbyists, and weekend wrenchers
Datsun Garage was created and managed by two friends who reunited in 2015 over a 1972 Datsun 240Z. One is a computer programmer by trade and new to the Datsun scene. The other is an expert on Z’s and works in the industry. This match helped make the building of Datsun Garage both easy and a lot of fun.
We thank you for visiting and hope you have fun and are inspired. Enjoy!
The Original Problem
What rims and wheel sizes will look good on my car?
The idea for Datsun Garage was born one night as a newcomer to the Datsun scene was up late researching different rims and wheel sizes for his 1972 240Z. There was no definitive visual directory for 240Z builds. What rims looked good, what fitments work best? Also, what type of exhaust systems are available and what are the different front air dam options?
Forums contained long build threads with lots of banter and few images. Google provided some good reference photos but also included unrelated images. Online stores only carried certain brands and didn’t always show the parts installed on the car. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a searchable directory of 240Z’s to compare different rim options? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to reach out to the owner to ask about the wheel size?
The Solution (Our Mission)
To be a diverse online visual guide for all types of Datsun builds
Whether you’re rich or poor, stock or track we want to provide provide a platform for all Datsun and Nissan fans to share their builds with others in the community. We aim to be the most diverse and accurate visual directory of Datsun and Nissan cars, parts, and customizations.
