Late last year when we did our Speedhunters Awards, we included a category for Reader Cars of the Year — a group that included a huge selection vehicles from across the world.
We asked our loyal readers to select their favorite, and when the voting finished a Datsun Z out of Northern California had emerged as the winner. We figured you guys would want to see more on this old Datsun that you had chosen, so I made plans to meet up with its owner Sunny Liang to shoot a full feature.
We met up near downtown Oakland at a shop called Performance Options. Sunny drives the Z nearly every day — and the car shows all the signs of being a real daily driver — from the scrapes and dings to the multiple shades of silver on the body.
After meeting up with Sunny at the shop, I hopped in the shotgun seat and we set out to the shoot location. Even though the Z sits mere inches off the ground, I was very surprised at how civilized the ride was.
From there it was through the underwater tunnel and on to the island of Alameda. When I asked Sunny how he acquired the Z, he told me that his uncle actually gave him the car around the time he graduated high school.
Over the past few years since acquiring the car, Sunny has been working hard to transform the Z into his ideal street machine. Unlike modern cars, getting proper suspension for a Z is a bit more involved than jumping on Ebay, waiting for postman to show up and bolting on some badass coilovers.
He has also equipped the car with T3 weld-in camber plates. Sunny rounded out his suspension setup with lower control arms, roll center adjusters, and tension control rods from T3, plus a set of sway bars from Suspension Techniques.
On the induction side, the stock SU carbs have been replaced with a long cannon intake manifold and a set of triple Weber 45 DCOE side draft carburetors. While the naturally aspirated setup with the screaming Webers makes the Z plenty of fun to drive, Sunny is actually in the process of a building a new motor for the car — a turbocharged L The difficulty of picking the right set of wheels is something every car enthusiast can relate to, and Sunny spent a lot of time trying to figure out what sort of wheels he wanted for his Z.
Sunny placed an order through Work Wheels, and a couple months later he had his custom-finished set of Equip 03s, 15x9J for the front and 15x10J for the rear.
The custom-ordered black barrels and the aggressive sizes ensure they nobody will mistake his legit Equips for the numerous cheap knockoffs that have flooded the market over the last few years.
The interior of the Z is full of functional upgrades for both hard driving and urban cruising. Sunny also added an Autopower roll bar custom painted in candy purple. This is something that comes in handy when Sunny takes the car to Buttonwillow Raceway with his friends. Sunny also outfitted the car with a fully upgraded audio system with speakers, subs, amps, and a Clarion double DIN head unit.
Is it the fastest? Regardless of that, Sunny loves his car and and uses it regularly.The Ultimate Betrayal and the Chocolate Soufflé. Foreword. To my family, friends, loyal customers, staff and supporters whose multiple kindnesses and unstinting support made my journey a true story of survival of the ultimate betrayal.

Petrie’s Electronics Case, Chapter 5, Questions 1, 3, and 5. 1. What do you think are the sources of the information Jim and his team collected? Interactions between metals and oxides are key factors to determine the performance of metal/oxide heterojunctions, particularly in nanotechnology, where the miniaturization of devices down to the nanoregime leads to an enormous increase in the density of interfaces.
