There is also photo and video coverage of local automotive and events held in south-east Queensland such as QPDC Datsun Cruises, drag racing, shows, cruises and sprints. For technical information and step-by-step articles on modifying your Datsun or turbo performance car, take a look at the technical section.

  • What a mission! You may not notice just looking at the site, but Turbophile has undergone a huge upgrade in the last week or so. This won't mean much to the average Turbophile viewer, but I have converted the whole site to CSS based layout and it is now all fully compliant with web standards. What this does mean to the average Joe is that the site loads faster and is generally better.
  • Some updates in the works will include 4 new feature cars (a Datsun B310 from Malaysia, a CA18DET Stanza, a 2-door Datsun 510 and a sweet SR20DET Datsun 1600) so keep watching for these in the next couple of weeks
