The Datsun 280ZX Is Japanese Perfection

Illustration for article titled The Datsun 280ZX Is Japanese Perfection

Welcome to Midnight Oil, where we keep you awake with pornographic images of cars that are sure to haunt your dreams.


It seems we often forget that the Japanese built some truly incredible cars in the late 1970s. The 280ZX was one of those cars.

Look at those lines. It's a uniquely Japanese interpretation of the incredible Jaguar E-Type. I must have you.


Our friends at Cars Addiction sent this in. I'm glad they did.

As always, here it is extra large, because I like you guys.

If you have a picture that you own the rights to and would like it featured for a future Midnight Oil, shoot an email to travis at jalopnik dot com with the subject "Midnight Oil." And if you attach a photo, make it high res!
