Spanking wide Datsun Triple S!

Published on January 30th, 2010

My faithful green has been in and out of workshop, making the mechanic’s life miserable just to rectify one problem… my aircond. I have to admit that it is really cold when it’s working but the expiry date really gets to me. It can only lasts three days max.

The most would be a week with air conditioner and then it went boom! I mean it quite literally, damaging the whole system as the compressor ripped the belt in a pretty dramatic manner. It’s either that or the air conditioner hose burst thanks to the location of my extractor manifold.  It won’t be a problem if Malaysia is as cold as Japan and it doesn’t rain as much if not worst than Holland.

So right before I made my trip to Johor I had it fixed yet again only to lasts me up to Ayer Keroh before the belt snapped and rendered us without aircond for the next 270km. To make matters worst, it was raining so Syawal and I were partially drenched with sweat and rain. Still we made it to Johor and I’d say the trip was worth being smoked by three Singaporeans’ Porsches while on the highway.

Lan’s Triple S is a show car nonetheless with an engine and intricate design to match.

The custom wide arches done to accomodate the Work Rezex 18″ by 10″ for the front and 12″ in the rear gives the Triple S an olskool killer stance complemented by the fine airbrush stroke on its exterior. To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of airbrush done on rides but as for this one… the geisha design on the hood was so intricately done I fell in love with it, so much that I wished the Geisha was real and my Japanese is up to par with her to be able woo her.

Bodyworks are all in aluminum and Lan took it to a wider stance with custom arches and skirts to complement the wheels. Front bumper is customed from the original bumper and the visible oil cooler and intercooler complete the looks. I was never a fan of GT wings especially on an ol’skool ride as it was ridiculously reaching the skies but then that’s up to the owner and not me rite?

Get inside the ride and you’d know that Lan is a fan of music at full blast with numbers of speakers and what’s not to enhance the decibels and most probably disintegrate your eardrums… it’s not a surprise if Lan lost his hearing in the next couple of years.

The Triple S also boasts a show of light in the interior and out, something like the rides in the first Fast and Furious and it changes colours at the discretion of the driver as there are a switch to control it and baffles the crowd!

Let the ignition sparks and we were enchanted if not deafened by the boom-per-boom roar from the exhaust, which is located right underneath the 13B. This is what I love most about the ride. It was deafeningly loud when Lan started the engine. Right after I had to risk my dear life underneath it to tighten a loose hose of trickling fuel a ‘lil too near to the exhaust and limited space. I only have three inches of space between me and the engine and the possibility of the ride falling was just scary!

As he fired it up, we can barely hear ourselves even though we were yelling our lungs out… and this beautiful noise comes from an engine that churns about 500+ ponies! Now now… I’d say that’s more than enough power for it to go sideways aye?
