Zpotted: Yellow 240z w/ rare adds

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?

Zpotted: Orange 240z

Now I KNOW we’re living in the right neighborhood! Just a street down from my house I spot…

What an example of a classic Datsun 240z! One of these days, I’ll head over there and we’ll get a chance to know more about this guy!

Zpotted: whizzin’ in white 280

Saw these guys doggin’ left and right on 280 in a 280z!

Total daily driver on classic centerline-type wheels and wheel spacers (must be!) – well loved and well used!

You should’ve seen these two guys – absolutely having a blast! Just another classic Z on the road as it should be!

Datsun: still in the media

Stopped by America’s Tire for one of our cars (i’m a big fan of their tire certificate), and behold on the wall is a poster for thanking customers. Check out the ZX.

Zpotted: yes, my wife “zpots”

My wife knows I love Datsun, and sends me pics every now and then. Love her for it! But I’m never good about posting them – haha sorry it’s been awhile. But here we go…

Datsun B210  

And what looks to be a Datsun 280ZX with massive sun roof.

 

Zpotted: Z in Entourage

I would have never given the show, Entourage, a chance if it weren’t for a friend mentioning that it was produced by Mark Wahlberg.. And he knows I’m a fan of Mark Wahlberg! He also mentioned it’s suppose to loosely resemble his life coming out to Hollywood from Boston. I’m a ways from there but being from MA, I can relate… Haha naw. Either way – love the show.
Somewhere in Season 2, the crew go visit an indie Director in a motel… Can you spot it?

A white, t-top’d 280zx!
