Jay Leno Exposes The (Possible) Future Of The Nissan Z In Japan

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… » 10/07/12 11:00am 10/07/12 11:00am

24 Hours Of LeMons Arse Freeze-A-Palooza Über Gallery: Awesome Datsuns,…

We've started to see quite a few 300ZXs at LeMons races, in addition to the usual crop of 280Zs and 280ZXs. For reasons we don't understand, the Zs haven't been so reliable at LeMons races; at some point, though, one of them is bound to dominate a race. We're also hearing rumors of a possible 510 at a future West… » 1/09/09 2:00pm 1/09/09 2:00pm

Creator Of Driveshaft-Through-The-Skull Design Takes 8th Place At…

While at the 24 Hours of LeMons South event, I saw four racing team members (on four different teams) wearing Driveshaft Through The Skull T-Shirts during the course of the weekend- pretty impressive, given that we only made 84 of them and they were shipped all over the world. The proud wearers of those shirts might… » 7/30/08 2:00pm 7/30/08 2:00pm

We'd Question The Legality Of A 15-inch Windshield LCD

Any AutoX'er can testify that the Nissan 300zx is one heck of a fun car to drive. With that being said, we're baffled that one particular Boston 1991 Nissan 300zx owner would feel the need to install a 15-inch LCD screen right in the view of the windshield. Sure, there's space to the left and right to, you know, see… » 5/20/08 1:40pm 5/20/08 1:40pm

Project Car Hell, Richmond Edition: 2002 or 300ZX?

The Neon trounced the Protege in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll, which is something of a surprise given that a Protege won the Thunderhill race and would be more hellish to set up as a race car due to the automatic transmission. But no matter- today we're going to see which of two radically different cars will… » 1/03/08 5:00pm 1/03/08 5:00pm

Nissan Engineers Tease the Masses: 350Z GT-S Concept

One of our greatest regrets in life was the night when the busty, pro-S&M temptress with the 300ZX Twin Turbo invited us back to her hotel room saying, "I've got a 1.5L of Maker's Mark" and we said no. And while we totally blew it with the world's greatest woman, it's nice to know British Nissan engineers have built… » 12/07/06 10:00am 12/07/06 10:00am
