Rotang B2K

NZ Performance Car - - Power Plant -

Clock­ing up noth­ing short of 14 years in the build, the bagged ’84 Mazda B2000 be­long­ing to Wiremu Bürkhardt flaw­lessly blends the new with old school. Beige paint­work and pin­stripes mixed with late-model Hilux steel­ies in ox­ide red look ev­ery bit pe­riod cor­rect, and, for the right kind of bark, you’ll find a Mazda 13B hid­ing un­der­neath the bon­net. Stay­ing true to the blend, the B2K lays frame cour­tesy of a cus­tom C-notch and airbag mount set-up that holds Slam Spe­cial­ties RE-6 bags, while the rear diff is con­trolled by a cus­tom three-link — ev­ery­thing planned so as not to dis­turb that old-school ex­te­rior ap­pear­ance. Wiremu man­aged to give the old girl a solid shake­down at Pukekohe come Sun­day, too.
