I have a 1979 280 zx that I have done some re-wiring and replaced the brakes on and just took it on a 600 mile round trip non-stop (except for gas) and she ran like a champ! I've had it pegged out at the 140mph mark and still had tons of pedal left! I love this car! I've been a Datsun fan since I was a kid. The first truck I owned was a 79 Datsun 620 and I also had a 79 Datsun B210, all ran beyond the call of duty!

My 1979 280ZX 2x2 was absolutely the best car I've ever had, and beautiful with metallic blue paint and blue velor interior, I called her "Little Girl." So darn dependable. The first car I've ever driven that got 2nd and 3rd gear scratch without even trying.
Yes, the corners to look forward to, a little water puddle in the road to play in. I'll never own anything else.
But alas, rust and a lady changing lanes totaled her. But after my mourning period was over, I now own a 80 280ZX 2 seater, black, gold pin striping, and tan interior 130,000 original miles. I call her "BB" because she is black and beautiful.
Her body is not as long and elegant, but I'm learning to love her differences. I LOVE THE Z CARS.

I have a 1980 280zx and I drive it hard every day, never lets me down. People always have good comments about it too. It's fast, fun, and good on gas.
