I grew up in High School with my dad's 72 240z....fastest I've ever been in a car was 130 mph with my dad driving! On I-5 in California before it opened. His business did work for Chevron Oil so he had connections, they owned the land on I-5 back in the day around Kettleman City.

@ Super8: About 12 years ago, I was riding the school bus home when I saw a little old lady driving a Datsun 240 Z, the bus driver was amused. Z cars are legendary and highly sough after in America.

@ Shaggy: The good think about this car in Japan, there was a movie, manga and game called midnight run starring this car. It heavily modified and it can even chase Ruf CTR yellow bird at Tokyo Highway.

It must have been something special to drive one of these brand new, I wouldn't know, it came out 15 years before I was even born.

I also love this car! This: looks the same good as Jaguar E-Type, was as fun to drive as Ferrari Dino, performs and is reliable the same as Porsche 901, and costs the same as Mustang. Indeed, can't find a word fits better than Legend.

@ Shaggy : Completely agree with you , it's really great .
The hot-selling Z-car with combination of style and performance and very good handling with MacPherson struts in all corners and very reasonably price , really was a legend .
