I'm putting my z for sale; it's a 1975 Datsun 280z S30 coupe 5 speed. She's a great car and she’s got lots of new parts. She’s a great daily driver. I'm selling my Z because I need cash to start up my business. That's the only reason I'm selling her. I bought this car with the intention to never sell her. But life has her way of letting you know who is boss. I upgraded the suspension and all the brake parts because I wanted to make sure she would be a reliable daily driver. Fully tuned up and ready for her new home. She's not perfect but turns heads where ever she goes. The interior is all there and original besides one missing panel. The only interior defects are the holes where the PO cut out for speakers, and the driver rear quarter panel cover is missing. On the driver seat there is a small whole by the left bolster and a small slit by the bottom left bolster. The passenger seat is mint. All the gauges work except the clock. New Falken 205/50/15 tires on Enkei 92s 15x8, new left and right tie rod ends, new sway bar end links, 4 new shocks, new brakes, new SS brake lines, new rear brake cylinders. New Flow master 40 series muffler. New 280zx master cylinder, new clutch master cylinder. New plugs and wires. New carpet. Used 330MM Naradi steering wheel. New shift booth and e-brake boot. Car comes with factory 4 speed. Installed is a 1982 280zx close ratio 5 speed. New speakers all the way around, 6" in the front under the dash and 5.5" in the rear. Nice Pioneer CD player with Aux input and remote. A/C blows cold and has been retrofitted to use R134 gas. Heater works great too. Dash has a cover over it, has a few cracks. The car has some old tint on it that will be removed. The body is on good shape with only a few spots that have bobbles here and there. The PO repainted the car and didn't do a good job with the prep work. The rust is minimal with a car this age and will be a quick fix with a repaint if you feel it’s necessary. Frame rails are solid. The floor boards have a few small holes, but nothing that a few patches can't fix. Overall the floors are structurally sound. The original 280z bumpers were swapped in favor of the 240z front bumper with custom mounting brackets. The rear I left without a bumper because that was the look I was going for. Air dam is for a 240z as you can see there is cut outs for 240z turn signals. Over all the Z is a great car for a daily driver and she turns heads. She needs a few cosmetic fixes but other than that she’s great! Hope the new owner will enjoy her as much as I did. Happy bidding. Low Reserve.

If there's a trend in the auto industry we can firmly get behind, it's the small, light and affordable rear-drive coupe. The positive critical reception to the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins has encouraged other manufacturers to look at building their own rear drivers, and even a few to show actual concept cars based on the idea. The Chevrolet Code 130R from 2012 and more recently, the Nissan IDx twins that were first shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show both come to mind, as does the brand-new Kia GT4 Stinger Concept.
Nissan trotted out the IDx Nismo and the IDx Freeflow for another showing in Detroit and we'll admit to being totally smitten with both cars. Again. The duo draw inspiration from the iconic Datsun 510, a lightweight, affordable rear-driver that remains a cult favorite decades after production ended.
Now, a report from our friends at AutoWeek reveals that we may, possibly, hopefully see a production IDx, provided fans make a strong enough case for it. "It's in the plan," Nissan product boss Andy Palmer told AW. According to the report, Palmer said the IDx is "into the first sage of the development process. The next stage is project validation and then looking at the business case. It's no one's intent to waste millions of the company's money, so obviously we have a good feeling about this one."
The guys behind Motor Trend's monthly Roadkill series have collected nine of their favorite project cars from their videos and pitted them against each other in a battle royale to determine a winner. It's 44 minutes long, but it's completely worth the investment of time.
The cars run the gamut from a 1973 Chevrolet Ramp Truck, a 1975 AMC Pacer and a legitimately impressive 1967 Chevy Camaro, and they are pitted against each other to see which is the fastest around an autocross course. The drivers include Roadkill's two hosts and Motor Trend's Johnny Lieberman and Carlos Lago. It's reminiscent of the best episodes of Top Gear and worth a watch.
So it's the weekend - the perfect time to relax. Grab your preferred beverage, get comfortable and enjoy 44 minutes of some seriously ratty but utterly cool project cars as they are throttled within an inch of their lives (or past it). Scroll down to check out the video.
In March of 2012, Nissan announced the return of its historic Datsun brand. Datsun used to represent the Nissan brand in a number of markets, but its badge hasn't been worn on a new model since 1981. In 2013, though, it has been relaunched as the Japanese manufacturer's budget offering in the emerging markets of India and Russia.
The model that will lead that charge, at least in India, is the Go, a car that pays tribute to the very first Datsun, the DAT-GO.
The operative term with the Datsun brand is: "budget offering." Don't step inside the Go and expect beautiful hides or brushed metals (it's being sold in India, after all). The instrument cluster features a simple speedometer, while the five-speed manual and the center stack above it are rather barren. It's not without luxuries, though, as iPod-style connectivity is available through a Mobile Docking Station.
