1975 DATSUN CUSTOM "HONEY BEE DRIFTER"For those of you unfamiliar with the sport. drifting calls for a high-powered car with enough rear-wheel power to slide sideways through corners at high speeds. Some compare it to Rally racing. but in drifting the winner isn't the first to cross the finish line. Rather. judges determine who wins based on execution and style. All drifting competitions take place on closed courses where racers maneuver their cars into spectacular power slides around corners. To successfully execute this type of racing. a driver must figure out the balance of the car's engine power. gears. brakes and steering to go beyond the normal limits of the suspension and tire traction. That said. Monster Garage took a classic 1975 Datsun 210 Honey Bee and transformed it into a drift car with the help of a 280hp engine from a brand new Nissan 350Z. Mario Lozano. Nissan specialist and certified engine guru stated that the steering was probably the more difficult aspects to the vehicle. Lozano also dealt with having to fabricate without any drawings or dimensions and a time limit. The team also shared the joy of fitting the new 280hp Nissan 350Z engine into the little Datsun and completing all of the wiring. Jesse. and the rest of the team finished the Honey Bee on time. and the end product was a bee-utiful drift car. THE DESIGNERS: Jesse James. custom-bike builder/designer. West Coast Choppers.
