This is a nicely done Custom 280Z V8 conversion in really nice, low mile restored condition. Classic Z car has been
professionally converted and customized... ready for daily driver, cruises, or local shows. All the custom work
including body, interior, drivetrain, and suspension have been redone professionally. This Z is great all around.
Looks, runs, feels, and drives awesome... FAST and smooth. Excellent weekend cruiser, daily driver, or addition to
any collection.
Body is straight with no rust or collision damage that I can see. Fit and finish are very nice. Driver quality
custom repaint presents beautifully with minor blemishes. Seams and rubbers are great. Underside is clean with
original undercoating. This is a driver!!
Interior is in nice condition as well. Panels, carpet, and headliner all look great...Custom seats fit and feel
great. Dash has a nice cover. Fully insulated, feels quiet and tight. Electronics work properly. Custom tach
installed... speedo not hooked up but I'll try to take care of that this week.
BEST PART... rebuilt chevy 350 V8 Motor starts, runs, and idles excellent... performance enhancements but built for
daily driver relaiability, Super responsive and nicely tuned. Rebuilt 3 speed Auto Trans shifts smooth through the
gears. Car has great street manners and is FAST!!!... Super fun to drive!! Sounds mean but not obnoxious through
custom exhaust. Suspension feels tight and handles excellent. Goes down the road straight with no wiggles,
shimmies, or shakes... Stops straight and sure. EXCELLENT, FAST driver.
Overall this is a Super nice Custom Z in great condition all around... it is extremely well preserved. Awesome

Fiat contemplating sub-brand to compete with Dacia, Datsun

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 08:46:00 EST

You can add Fiat to the admittedly short list of automakers considering a low-cost brand to rival Dacia. The inexpensive Eastern European brand from Renault-Nissan has performed on the balance sheet like a premium model line, and the money the alliance is taking off the table is encouraging other players to deal themselves in. Pretty soon Nissan's Datsun sub-brand will join the Dacia party, going on sale in Russia, Indonesia and India and will claim even more rubles, rupiahs and rupees for the parent company. Volkswagen recently said it will make a decision this year on a budget line for the Chinese market. With the euthanasia of Lancia and plans to move the Fiat brand upmarket, company CEO Sergio Marchionne wonders aloud to Automotive News Europe whether there could be room for a new budget brand underneath Fiat.
We're told that the initiative has been in the idea box for five years and even moved to the stage of name considerations, like Innocenti, but worries about profit kept it from realization. If such a range were to be developed, Marchionne says it couldn't be built in Italy and stay within budget, and the company is "analyzing its manufacturing capacity outside of Europe to see if a low-cost brand is viable."

This father and son duo terrorize the UK countryside in Datsun 240Z pair

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 20:00:00 EST

The Datsun 240Z got a lot of things right when it was introduced, with handsome styling, strong performance and a reasonably affordable price. And while the coupes grew a strong fan base in the US, they remained quite a rarity in the UK. Decades later, a father and son in England have latched onto the car and bonded over their shared love for two completely opposite takes on this Japanese GT
There's already quite a collection of exotics in Mel Streek's garage, and his rat rod 240Z, which he calls the Ratsun, definitely doesn't fit with the rest. On the outside, the Datsun looks ready to fall apart, but it's mechanically perfect underneath. Alternatively, Mel's son, Ollie, has a completely different take for his Z with its perfect, shining paint.
Both Zs sound amazing, though. They have a mechanical, somewhat course exhaust note that's intoxicating to hear. You can definitely tell there's some work going on under the hood. Check out this video from Petrolicious for a father and son who both find something to love in these classic Japanese coupes.

Nissan IDx Nismo and IDx Freeflow concepts are a bridge to the Datsun 510

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 08:59:00 EST

We're not sure if someone from The Adjustment Bureau stopped by Nissan's PR department to explain the IDx Nismo and IDx Freeflow concepts, but the company's odd press release can't diminish our love for these two show favorites. We had been told to look out for an unnamed Datsun 510 BRE homage, and once we saw the brothers IDx, we knew we'd found them. But the press release doesn't mention anything about the Datsun 510 Brock Racing Enterprises, nor does it mention one Mr. Peter Brock, the man who won two Trans-Am championships in the Seventies for the nascent Japanese budget brand.
Instead, it declares that the cars were the result of a co-creation product development process with "digital natives," said natives being the whippersnappers born after 1990. Nissan says it worked with the young'uns to create two different expressions of "their desire for a basic, authentic configuration for a car." If that's true, it appears that what the kiddies really want are... two different homages to the Datsun 510 BRE that Peter Brock used to win two championships in the seventies for the nascent Japanese brand.
The IDx Freeflow - the "ID" is for "identification," the "x" is "the variable representing the new values and dreams born through communication" - takes the casual approach, with a light khaki exterior hue, a minimalist interior decked out in denim and a console shifter that works a continuously variable transmission. The IDx Nismo is out for blood, from its crimson interior to its five-point harness to its bolt-on flares and sidepipes. We aren't told what the digital natives requested for powerplants, but that's alright; if this is what "co-creation" looks like, we're not entirely against it except where that "CVT" is involved.
