i just wanted to say that this video has inpired in me a love for the car. Just how did you get it to sound that way? Thanks for creating an obsession!
Anyone know what type of airdam is on that Z… would like to get one.
anyone knows what the soundtrack is? 🙁
This Z is the inspiration for the Z I’m rebuilding! Does anyone know what size wheels and offset he is using? I really think it looks good on his car!
The wheels are the watanabe’s, what the car was designed with. I’m not sure on the offset hough, sorry.
I would love one with the same specification. Sounds amazing.
Beautiful!!! in ten years I will drive my 300ZX TT with the same pride as these as timeless classics
OMG – What a sound. (Is that an Alfa T-shirt you’re wearing?) – Eddie Relvas is right about the sound coming out of a good six. Nothing better and makes my Alfa/Ansa combo sound barely ok. The Z just sings. Well done Dave!
Great video!Very enjoyable to watch, the guys obviously a petrolhead and loves his car 🙂 and who wouldn’t? that INL6 sounds glorious and I love the compact design of the car… There is an interesting Autocar article of September 1972, comparing this to the Alfa Romeo 2000GTV and it was a very very close call between the two. One reviewer preferred the Z, the other the GTV.
Nice, clean work all around, Adam. Please do share when you are ready.
I had a red ’70 240Z in college and for a few years after. Always wished it had more power. Looks like Dave addressed that issue. Love everything about this car. The exhaust note is intoxicating!
Why the hell do Americans call them “Dotsuns”? It’s DATsun!
Also, beautiful car etc etc. 😀
Looks great, sounds glorious.
All your videos make me want whatever particular car is featured. I watch the video, get all excited and rush off to craigslist or ebay to look for examples of the featured car. Well done!
Small world, I’ve seen this guy’s car on my street a few times – sounds even better in person!
What an awesome sound! I’ve always maintained that a good six makes the best noises, and this proves it! Even I, as a diehard italian car enthusiast, have to admit to wanting one after watching this. The lines are pretty faultless, and there’s quite a sound machine underneath. It’s not perfect, but a machine that’s enjoyed on a regular basis is much better than a councours queen. As always, awesome video!
Lovely 240, sounds fantastic.
Check out my 240z on youtube, it’s a rat car with a full restoration underneath.
What a beautiful car and video!
Such a beautiful Z. Awesome video guys, been waiting for a something S30 related. I enjoy just walking past mine, looks just like his but blue. He is dead right with the rear 3/4 of them, so much good looks on a vehicle.
That sound is so sweet, love the shirt too!
Having a stepnose I was motivated to find the shirt and thought I would share for those of you interested too… http://www.drivenautowear.com/category/shirts
Such a cool car and video. Shared on my facebook business page 🙂
Stunning! Too bad Datsun lost their way (name change included) and started building bloato mobiles like the later Z cars, this is a reminder of how great they once were.
Always wanted one when I was in my teenage years. Nice to see one is still running and screaming. Also very cool Alfa T-shirt.
That sound is spine tingling! Cool car, cool video and Dave, has a very cool jacket too!
I was jealous of his jacket while I was filming this.
Wow! The looks and sound of this car are awesome!
[b]That is one sweet sounding Z. Man every Tuesday I want a different car. Just have to get the 944 Turbo I just bought on the road to satisfy some cravings. Great video.[/b]
That is a car that also deserves a video.
