The White Devil Z of Houston… no, Trump isn’t cruising around the streets of Houston, but Brad Burnett’s latest Datsun S30 280Z is.  Check out more of the White Devil Z of Houston – Houston Automotive Photography and how long it took to build…

White Devil Z of Houston

Ok, you might be thinking the White Devil Z of Houston has a crazy engine swap of some kind since it’s the infamous ‘Mad Brad‘ we’re talking about here, but it’s not quite the case.  The 1976 Datsun chassis retains its factory L28E engine now equipped with Link G4+ Atom ECU, custom wiring harness, and a pacesetter exhaust system…

Aftermarket suspension is not even installed yet…

Long story short, Brad bought the car in Austin, November of 2012 and got it road worthy a year later…

4 years later, the interior and exterior came together and we have what you see here today…

The wheels are 15×10 -25 all around but the front needed an extra 25mm spacer….

The squat stance…

Brad wanted a photo of the Z and Saint Arnold Brewery…

The soft lighting under the bridge during sunset was perfect on the Z’s custom white satin paint…

Since the sun started setting, the best lighting would be at an open area…

To be honest, white satin paint is very forgiving in all types of light…

Check out the meaty Toyo R888’s…

Brad’s White Devil Z is like an automotive minimalistic canvas…

You don’t have to have fancy parts…

brad_burnett_datsun_z_by_danh_phan_2017-27

Just the right ones…

So when it comes together…

It’s just right.

The Houston skyline during sunsets are pretty epic sometimes…

Then we took a couple of rollers in the area…

This shot reminds me of the bridge in Downtown Los Angeles…

The White Devil Z of Houston will be getting another engine makeover with ITB’s and upgrade in suspension, brakes, and differential in the near future.

Thank you as always for checking out my Houston automotive photography on the blog while you’re driving, eating, pooping, cooking, or whatever it is you’re doing… thanks!

Special thanks to Lawrenzo for letting me use the truck to get some of the epic shots.
