The Fairlady 240Z. Do you know what a 350Z is? Do you know what a 370Z is? THIS is where it all started. This super hipster “period modified” car.
A lot has been lost with the mechanical connection between sports cars and humans since the electronic boom has consumed them. Human interaction and mechanized feel has disappeared with computers doing most of the heavy lifting: steering, throttle and suspension.
The original Datsun 240Z is considered one of the most iconic and important sports cars ever made. The two-seat coupe offered great performance, exotic looks, a reasonable price tag — and it didn't leak oil on the showroom floor, unlike some of its European competition. The car hammered its British and Italian…
After a several month hiatus Josh Clason's Depth of Speed is back with another fantastic video profiling one man's deep love of all things Datsun.
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a 1972 Datsun 240Z
Is replica-building an authentic form of automotive self-expression or merely a case of trying too hard? There’s only one way to find out: take a Ferrari 250 GTO and turn it into a Datsun 240Z.
Adult film star Peter North is selling his Stillen-modified, 516-hp Nissan 300ZX on eBay. The car has 15,000 miles on it. We'll let you make your own jokes with this one. [eBayMotors]
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. How about a nice early Datsun Z?
Idaho's state bird is the Mountain Bluebird. Datsun's 240Z is a derivation of the Bluebird sedan. Today, Nice Price or Crack Pipe has a Ford-powered Z from the potato state that might just flip your blues the bird.
We've seen the miserable racetrack reliability of the 240Z/260Z/280Z/280ZX/300ZX at enough LeMons races to see the pattern, but the real surprise has been the large number of Zs that managed to keep running well enough to make the top third. Will a Z ever take the overall win? Doubtful… but anything can happen on a…
Anyone stashing a vintage car has a common fear — rodents. They can quickly take cars from "in-need-of-plates" to "in-need-of-complete-teardown." Luckily, this Datsun 240Z owner discovers chipmunks didn't destroy anything, just used his exhaust as storage for pilfered dog food.
Virgin 240Z's are a rare find these days, and Nice Price or Crack Pipe is still looking. But in the mean time, here's a Canadian one with a V12 bun in the oven!
It's a real head-scratcher: the Datsun/Nissan Z has plenty of six-banger power, independent rear suspension, four-wheel discs, good build quality… yet so far none has placed better than eighth in LeMons. Why is that?
Leave it to the Japanese to create car animation with such incredible attention to detail.
Japanese cars made up nearly half the entries at the Gator-O-Rama, with 44 out of 95 vehicles coming from the Co-Prosperity Sphere. Miatas, Celicas, and RX-7s galore, of course, but that wasn't all.
Those of you who believed El Suburbanimo to be the ultimate New Jersey vehicle might want to reconsider after you take a look at this '73 Datsun 240Z. Back in the early 80s, with just 19,721 miles on the Z's clock, its owner decided some custom touches were in order. A little body kit here, some stripes and TURBO…
Our friends at Japanese Nostalgic Car recently went to the Z-Car West Coast Nationals in Silverado, California. As you'd imagine, there was quite a selection of tasty vintage Datsuns and some newer Nissans too. We just love the timeless proportions of a long hood and sloping back on the older Datsuns, so we've…
