Zpotted: champagne gold

My buddy Nick sent this over while he as in town. A 911 owner himself, he was still excited to tell me all the aspects he liked about this gold / champagne ’75/’76 Datsun 280z he zpotted in the parking lot.

Check it out – super clean! Krager / Centerline – like rims (probably original from the dealer), OE beefy bumpers, and just smooth and shiny as any perfect example would be. He was really keen to point out the louvers on the rear winshield – love’m.

Actually my 280z originally had the louvers; how can i tell? there’s a wear line on the glass! hmm gotta think about getting those before the summer sun really comes in!

Thanks Nick!
