This video and these cars are incredible. I fell in love with the car when it first came out and have all the original ads. Watching this 240Z video was like looking at an old boyfriend that I never quite got over, emotionally bitter sweet. My first car was a 240Z, I had a total of 4 240Zs over the years, restored 2 from the frame up, and even had a FairLady Z (right hand drive) in Japan … Ollie, don’t ever sell that car!!

Big fan of videos that makes you immediately check Autotrader to see whether you can pick one up in your local area!
Fantastic looking cars and good to see some fellow Brits representing their passion and the joys of driving in the English countryside. Another great Petrolicious video 🙂

Nice to see a father and son both enjoying classic cars together.

My only disappointing aspect is that these are LHD US imported cars to the UK in recent years. It is all a bit artificial.

So, if they were back in the USA they would be ok? I guess all LH drive cars in the UK are also artificial? Well if that is your only complaint it’s probably your issue not theirs. Good luck to them as they drive one of the true Japanese classics. I bought one new – a genuine 125mph car and a hoot to drive. Unfortunately I was forced off the road, end for ended it 5 times and barrel rolled another 3. I was told it looked spectacular and it did end up about the size of a micro car.… Read more »

Were you not listening?! The lad, Ollie, clearly states that he purchased his Z in Copenhagen … Which is in Denmark! Which is nowhere near the US! Jeeeeez!
And, besides, what makes a left-hand-drive car in Briitain ‘artificial’?! Some of the greatest handling cars ever were only available in left-hand-drive, even in the UK. The Lancia Intergrale and the original E30 M3 being two of them. They sure as hell weren’t ‘artificial’!

Such cool cars. I’ll admit to not appreciating them enough over the last decade but in the last two or three years as I’ve started liking older cars vs newer cars these 240z’s keep looking more and more beautiful. There is an orange one at a shop near where I get burgers and it drives me crazy just looking at it sitting there, especially in orange.

I think they are stunning. That one is no different! Good find!

Another great video Petrolicious. I kinda forgot how good these Datsun Z-cars could sound when throttled around a corner. I do really enjoy the contrast between the rough and pretty looking cars.
