サニトラ買っちゃいました!!茨城でフェアレディ240Z旧車改造の相談ついでに。。。I Bought Another Truck… This Time in Japan!!


You wouldn’t consider selling me this Sunny truck? Try taking an engine apart once! We’re heading to Ibaraki! I’m as cool as any of these dudes are! Learn about classic cars first!! Why you always hiding Nino? I love the smell of old cars! Well? will you sell it to me??? yeah.. I think so…. Good morning Ryo! where’s Nino hiding? The 3 of us are heading to Ibaraki today!! We’re going to meet up with my friend Isaka-san from Banzai Racing Equipment. Why are you always hiding back there Nino??? lol I haven’t been to Ibaraki too many times before…. Hey Nino! Remember Zundoya Ramen? We ate it in Kobe at end of World X Series Rally…. it was really good! I didn’t know they had a restaurant here in Shinjuku Kabukicho ! I want to see Godzilla on the way to the station…. its this way right? Remember when I got a job and got fired in the same night at the Host Club? Maybe I should give it a try again here this time…. I think I’m as cool as these dudes are! I think I gotta work on my pose though… and I don’t think my hair is quite cool enough yet…. lol I gotta work on my makeup skills too.. lol The more I think about it the more of a bad idea it is…. I think my days of being a Host in a club are over Nino… lol Which girl do you like the best? this one? No… I like this girl… Chino? What about you Ryo? you like Ai ? Let me see who I like best…. this is difficult…. lol they are all so cute it’s hard to choose just one… lol I’m like a little kid…. “mama, can I push the button?” I love vending machines…. and this is a cool one! Japan is all about vending technology! I wonder what the QR code is used for? this thing is so modern! we have nothing like this in America… and if we did someone would likely vandalize it! This is my car on this poster!! LOL Isaka-san just gave me this as a present! it’s even got my thumbs up on it too!! and look at this one! I think you should have this one Steve! I’m giving you this one as a present! are you sure? yes, I want you to have this one! I promise to take good care of it! I cant believe this!! Thank you very much! This is incredible! Oh here comes Isaka-san…. Nino and I want to go into the back warehouse… can we see what’s back here too? You really want to see back there? yes I do!! go ahead! really?!?! Isn’t this the Nissan Datsun Sunny pickup truck that was at the Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS)?? You’ve had it hiding here?? It’s still got the #69 on it! Just like at TAS ! Banzai Racing! I think it was 2 years ago when I saw this truck at TAS…. I said at that time (on video) that this was my favorite car of all the awesome cars at TAS! Wow.. that makes me so happy to hear! I’m not just saying that either… I really said that at that time… Remember that Nino? yeah and we even put a Steve’s POV sticker on it at that time too! it’s faded out but its still on here! What are you doing with this truck now? I don’t really have much further plans for it… That’s unfortunate… this year’s TAS I displayed the Hakosuka that I copied off of your Zerosuka design! lol so this truck has just been sitting idle for a while now… That is very very unfortunate…. you wouldn’t consider selling it would you? I haven’t seen many other rhd Sunny trucks that are this cool in America… You wouldn’t sell it to me? you want this truck Steve? yes I do… and I promise to take great care of it too…. really? yes and when you come to America we can go for a drive in it together! I guess I can sell it to you Steve…. really?!? Nino!! did you hear that?? are you serious??? yeah, I never thought he would sell this truck ever! Let’s shake on it to seal the deal… YES!! Awesome!! but Steve! I wanted that truck!! you have nothing to do with this Nino!! step aside!! lol this is between Isaka-san and me!! lol I even wore my Datsun hat today!! nice thinking Steve!! I am so happy!! I promise I will take good care of it too!!! no regrets? are we good?? yes.. we are good! There is something I wanted to ask Isaka-san his opinion about….. you know I own a 1971 Datsun 240Z? its bright orange and its been sitting in the back of my garage for a long time…. I’ve seen it from time to time hiding in the back of your garage!! Thats the car… and I finally have restarted the project…. its been a while…. yes it has…. and I want to drive it again soon…. it currently has 2 OEM Hitachi SU carbs… I want to upgrade those carbs and manifold to a Weber setup…. but I don’t know a lot about it so I figured while I was here I could pick your brain for some info or buy some parts….. hmmm… I am good at customizing things but when it comes to something technical like carburetors I am out of my comfort zone…. really? yes… but….. the good news is I have someone who knows a lot about carbs… someone here?? yes! someone here! you want to meet him? I can actually meet him and discuss these things with him now? that would be terrific!!! shall we go meet him? Let’s go! let’s go!! thank you so much Isaka-san! After talking with Isaka-san, we walked just a few feet outside his building and this is what we came too!! Garage Hitachi and its owner Aomori-san! I’m so happy I got to meet you today! Thank you for coming! Thank you! We walked up to here and they were outside stripping down a Nissan 4 cylinder engine! I knew I was in the right place! and Aomori-san was nice enough to answer so many of my questions! When I get back to America I plan to order a triple Weber carb and manifold setup for my 240Z Must be 3 carbs on an L engine!! lol He has shared so much knowledge with me! and he showed me his race car here too! Garage Hitachi is also associated with a racing team and driver…. This is Sobu-san… do you race this car? yes I do! and you also do Super Endurance racing too? yes I do… what is the name of your team? Team Not and we are based out of Kyushu. How long have you been racing for? I’ve been racing for a total of about 10 years…. and when did you start racing classic cars like this? I started last year… I’ve ran at Tsukuba and Fuji Speedway with it so far… isn’t racing a classic car like this fun? its so much fun!! I like the smells that come with an old car like this…. the gas and oils…. I think passion for cars includes things like smells and sounds too…. Of course new cars like Ferrari Challenge cars are amazing modern race cars but… but if you don’t understand a car like this one, its hard to appreciate how special a modern race car is….. I agree… That’s why I always tell young people to learn about old cars first…. then you can learn about and really appreciate the advancements made in more modern cars….. try taking an old engine apart sometime by yourself! try taking an old carburetor apart sometime…. there is information and videos out there to help you nowadays to learn those things…. and if you fail or just cant do it yourself…. you contact a pro like Aomori-san Garage Hitachi to help you! I am honored to have met you! Thank you!

    サニートラック
    当時、リアルタイムで乗ってた
    子供の頃に見た
    とか色々あって、このクルマはレストアして実際に走っているのを見かけると目を引きます
    サニートラックをスティーブさん自身が引き継ぐことで
    色々、役立つと思います👍️😎👍️
    現状のまま、サニートラックを乗るのか分かりませんが
    スティーブプロジェクト
    今後が楽しみ👍️💪

    Wow my uncle had a 1970s datson truck use to love riding in the back as a small kid. But it didn't look like that

  • 呉粲植

  • KAZU

    >スティーブさん
    車への愛がすごいですね!そして人柄も素敵です!
    あと、スティーブさんなら大丈夫だと思いますが歌舞伎町のキャッチ(客引き)には絶対についていかないでくださいね!!
    これからも楽しい動画楽しみにしております♪

  • syokuroda1979ks

    サニトラ無茶苦茶渋いですね
    ( ̄ー ̄)b
    しかもスティーブさん交渉の上購入に(^^;
    嬉しそうな表情

  • たね

    ウェーバーキャブレターは確か、調整が大変難しいと聞いたけど、日本ではその調整出来る人が少ないみたいですね~
    ソレックスキャブレターの方が実用的ではないですかね~

  • Exotic & Vegan Recipes

    Congrats for the hakosuka gtr pick up 😎👏🏼, I think now the 240z is gonna get fine. A friend had one painted azure blue with all the gauges digital custom made it is a gorgeous piece and still alive, let’s see how this one end is in good hands after all!

  • 金さん銀さん

    貴方はその人柄の良さから沢山の人々を引き込む魅力があります🇺🇸
    貴方の全てがオジサン達の夢ですねっ(笑)

  • 村田誠一郎

    ラプターがどうなるのかも気になるけれど、サニトラの今後も楽しみですね。アメリカの人がどう反応するのかも楽しみにしてます。

  • ありのままジブチャんねる

    日本での動画の撮り方すごく参考になります!
    Steveさんの車への愛情がたくさん伝わってくる映像も観ていて嬉しいです😄

    車初心者はまず
    旧車を知る事。エンジンルームを空けてキャブバラしてみること💡
    できない場合は、プロに任せる💡
    とても参考になります、ありがとうございます!!

  • aki3912

    しかしスティーブさんの日本語はとっても暖かい感じでいいですね。英語でしゃべる時より好きです。

  • DATSUN 1969

    サニトラ購入おめでとうございます‼️
    私もサニトラはオレンジメタリックのシャコタンにして乗ってました‼️

  • ペコとポコとボブTV

    石岡ですか?
    自分茨城県の水戸市に住んでます
    茨城にお越しいただきありがとうございます。機会があったら茨城県庁所在地の水戸に遊びに来てください。

  • 岩崎健

    DATSUN510マスクのサニトラいいですねぇ~😃

    確かに操る楽しさやイジる楽しさは、今の車からは感じる事が出来ないですよね…。😅

    スティーブさん…。

    次はスーパーカブを手に入れてみて下さい…。😃☺️😄😅

    エンジンがキャブレターのスーパーカブやリトルカブは、万人向けで乗りやすいですけど…。😅😁

    イジる楽しさも多種多様ですよ…。😃☺️😄😅

    ちなみに…。

    自分もリトルカブ(A-C50)を所有しています…。😁😅

  • アカン・プロスト

  • 5150 myochan

    大切な日本の車がまた外国に…でもスティーブさんだったら大切にしてくれて、クルマも喜ぶんでしょう🚘

  • Adam Feldman

    Nice video, you have a lot of solid💪contacts worldwide especially from here to Japan‼️✅Are you really buying that truck? If so that would be very🆒👍and pretty epic. The other thing, on a negative is there was like 4 commercials inserted into this video,, which is more than the average and I’m not sure why🤔🤷‍♂️??

  • ヤマハ ギア乗り

    サニトラは見た目ほど古くないのが良いね、見た目は70年代ぽいけど確か94年頃まで生産してた

  • onkouth

    Steve, you’re an absolute legend buddy, your enthusiasm for Japan’s culture, it’s cars and the people is truly infectious, I love this Chanel 👍 🇮🇪

  • kmasstwin4395
