The Build1978 Datsun 280Z

While it might be a looker, this 280Z has been built with driving in mind. Featuring the original L28 engine with Weber carbs and MSD ignition, we suspect that this lightweight can keep up with modern rivals and have fun doing it. It seems as though all wear parts have been recently replaced or upgraded including the radiator, clutch/flywheel, fuel pump, water pump, gaskets, and a whole lot more.
