The thing about the old Datsun 280Z is that it can still be found for cheap, rusting away out on some side street or in a barn on the other side of town. And that means you can find one, and you can hoon the crap out of one.
I've always liked the Datsun 240/260/280Z, but what's so good that it can't be fixed with an added Skyline RB25DET motor swap?
Some say that it is cursed, that it caused a business to fail, and proved too controversial even for eBay. But now, in an exclusive engagement on Nice Price or Crack Pipe, comes. . . the Delirious 250 GT-Faux.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here's one of the nicest street-driven 280Zs I've seen in a while.
Today's Question of the Day asked at what point does the turd enter the punchbowl of car customization? For your consideration we present the "Wildest Custom Z On The Planent." Our be-mulleted alter-ego kinda loves this thing.

While the turbine-powered Porsche 928 we found on eBay was admittedly pretty neat (and ended up selling for a measly $7,150), the accompanying video didn't really prove the car's kerosene-guzzling potential to us. Not so with this turbine-enhanced Datsun 280Z. This baby proves its mettle with Knight Rider-esque…
Cars are pitting around here like it's election time in Chicago — often and early. Still, there's some great
hoonage racing going on. To our eyes and ears here's what's going on. The Germans look mighty. 3-Series, Porsche 944s and a GTI are all running strong and running well. The MB 190? Still running. The…
