1983 Datsun 280ZX 2+2 2.8L OHC Straight 6 from North America
Timeless, fast and cheap
Stock, the suspension is too spongy. I had to put an Eibach suspension in it just to get it to hold a turn traveling over 70mph.
Lower ball joints are prone to give out at an early age due to poor design. Buy performance ball joints to keep this from happening.
I'm still not sure of the point of the back seat. You can't fit a family of mice in that thing. I guess Japanese people are shorter than I am.
They are flawlessly beautiful vehicles. I have it in my will to be buried in mine. They are extremly fast to begin with, and unbelievably reliable. My vehicle has almost 400,000 miles on it. It doesn't burn oil, knock, or ping, and has never left me stranded for any reason.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
