The only thing rarer than the sight of a Datsun 240Z in the English countryside is the sight of two 240Zs in the English countryside. Spend enough time on the backroads of Kent, however, and chances are Mel Streek and his son, Ollie, will scream past you in their pair of Z cars.

Great piece by Petrolicious – cannot help but think of a Safari 911 to take on a trip like this!

Definitely the most interesting video I’ve ever seen on this website. Bravo!!! And best wishes for the Rally.

Now I cannot think of a better car to do P2P (beside a 911). It looks good, reliable, old but not too old. What is the cut off year for the rally? I can however imagine myself in the rally with a late body 944 with a louvered hood

Since I also rally a classic Japanese car (also featured here on Petrolicious) , I’m glad to see this car featured. I remember seeing a video of this car by Matt Farah in 2016 and was wondering what ever happened to this 240Z. Love that Petrolicious is featuring more Japanese classics.
