This is one of the only Asian sports cars that interested me. It stole the styling but made it iconic in its own way.
It was light and simple where the 280 and 300 went the wrong way.
I just saw a local driver here in Ohio with one of these converted to a convertible. It was a well done job and makes one wonder how well a factory one would have done.
This is the car that makes me not like the new car as they should have copied this nose closer.
Imagine these lights with Jag like covers on the for aero.
The early Z's were probably the best cars ever built! Affordable, solid, good looking, performers. My dad had several of these Z's back then for his salesmen. I got to learn to drive in a '74 1/2 260Z, back in 1978, with the thick bumpers. Man that was a great car!! It tracked like nothing else. It was fast. The engine was smooth as a sewing machine. The car was tight, no rattles, no slop. Why oh why can't they build em like that anymore?
Had a '72 with 4 speed and AC, white over red/black. About $3K in 1978. One of my favs of all time. Sold it when the fender rot started, couldn't afford to deal with it. My bad.
