1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo 2.8 L six,turbo from North America
Great classic drivers
Replaced front ball joints and suspension bushings.
Like all Z cars there is some rust.
These cars run better overall than most of the collectable classics, in fact they compete very well with many new cars in terms of driveability, and overall performance. The 74 240Z and the 81-83 280ZX turbo are the choice models.
They are much cheaper than a classic Mustang or Camaro, and more fun to drive.
RUST... they all have it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am a owner of a 1981 Dastun 280zxTurbo all original with only 51,000 miles and not a lick of rust. This was my very first car at 16 years old. Now 16 years later and still haven't driven a car as much fun as my Z.
