1982 Datsun 280ZX 2+2 2.8(non-turbo) from North America
Great fun and a real eye-catcher!
As it is now, the rear shocks and springs are worn. The power steering pulley system seized. Dash and seats are cracked. Factory stereo doesn't work, but will be replaced anyways. Hatch's hydraulic lifts are worn out. Replaced clutch, and power steering system. Replaced seats. Clear coat is wearing off, but that's expected of a 21 year old car!
I've only had my Z-Car for a little more than a week. I've already done some minor work to it, but as it was, I couldn't think of a more fun car to drive. It could use wider tires, the previous owner had 195/75's on it. I'll soon replace those with some 225/35/17's complete with the California style spoke rally wheels, complete with chrome spinner caps. Overall, this car has serious potential to be a serious little hot-rod/cruiser with a little money and time!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
