240z

Behold the legendary Datsun 240z, a sports car like no other

In 1970, Datsun (aka Nissan) took America by storm when it released the 240z - a lightweight body, torquey inline-6 engine, fully independent suspension and a beautiful silhouette. It was lighter than a Porsche 911, had more horsepower and sold for half the price. People stood in line for test drives. The demand was so high that buyers often had to wait weeks before getting their own.

I'm Ace, and in the mid-90s I owned a '72. Now I'm doing a ground-up restoration of a '71. Come take a look.
