Fairlady Down Under: Built To Order’s Bagged 370Z
Photography & Words by Jordan Donnelly for Canibeat.com
For those of you that don’t know, I have been over here in Australia for the past month visiting my family, hanging out, and shooting cars. Cristian hooked me up with the guys at THE-LOWDOWN.com who lined up some cars for me to shoot, and they do not disappoint! I hadn’t been there more than 3 days and I got a call to meet up with and shoot a bagged 370z.
I met up with the owner – Peter, and the Builder – Tarik at a car wash by my place right as it was being dried. They had literally just finished the car, which is the first COR demo car for Built To Order (the AU/NZ distributor for COR, Rotiform, VIP Modular, and Vossen wheels), and this was the first time it had been out. After showing off to the entire staff of the car wash, and some people passing by, we headed out to shoot.
It was awesome watching peoples reactions to the car as we were driving to the spot. It’s not every day in Australia that you get to see a car like this, as the police here are ridiculous and are trying to rid the road of modified cars (more on that in an upcoming post). Heads were turning at the sight of the massive 20x10f and 20x12r COR Cipher’s poking out, breaking as we aired out the Universal bags, and then just wondering what this thing was when we hit all up on the Accuair E-Level to get over the massive speed tables that we had to conquer to get to the spot.

And what a spot it was! Overlooking the downtown Sydney skyline, with the sun setting, it was perfect! Well, we could have done without the freezing wind, but what can you do. Hope you guys enjoyed! More to come from my trip.
