The Build1978 Datsun 280Z

A flyweight by modern standards, this 280Z won't win any concourse events but it will turn every outing into an occasion - which is why these cars exist in the first place. This example is running a higher compression fuel-injected engine with about 20K miles since it was rebuilt, giving it more power and making it a bit easier to look after. We are fond of the fender mirrors and retro wheels in combination with the carbon fiber bits that finish the look.
