Here’s an interesting story: I spotted a 240z while flagging down a Corvair 95!
This guy was hummin’ along well over the speed limit in his blue Corvair 95 van, wheels tipped in – really punchin’ it!
Lol looking at the picture again – man, this says so much. You can see my speedometer..i’m going 40 and barely keeping up!
So I sought to flag him down to chat Corvair, and ended up at his driveway. Lo’n-behold, his neighbor owns a yellow Datsun 240z w/ some very interesting modifications i’ve never seen before! Check it:
You really get a Knight2000 vibe to it, yeah? You know when KITT goes into Super Pursuit mode? :]
First off, he’s got the Xenon body trim all the way around – left the rear black. Blacked out gas door and turbine styled wheels. Can’t really see it but also a stacked muffler like a Master Blaster. But what are those 2 items?! Is that a hatch spoiler? Are those white hatch vent covers?
Let’s work our way up: white hatch vent covers. I’ve never seen these! Usually, they’re slotted and chrome hatch vents, minimally raised from the hatch. These are clearly well pronounced comb-like covers made to force air down and out. Of course the ‘net doesn’t give much on these obscure guys!
Now check out that hatch spoiler! Again the internet lets us down! Though dark, it didn’t seem like it was home fabricated, so there’s got to be something out there on this! Anyone?
