1970 Datsun 240Z/L28- 7000rpm in first three gears - triple Weber 40DCOEs
Watch for the surprise at the end (!)...didn't get pulled though. See
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjpmkfdnNvI for the same engine with SU
carbs...which is a 1983 F54 L28 w/P90 turbo head, 10:1 compression, 15lb flywheel.
The engines sound similar but the Webers have much more torque than the
SUs, pull very hard in 1st and 2nd and easily to 7,000 in 3rd. I have a
Centerforce 2 clutch now which make changing gears a tick slower compared
to my earlier video however. The car is definitely faster through each gear with solid power to
Dare to Be Different in a Datsun 240Z
Owner Dave Scholz, shares his connection with a Japanese cult classic that
could easily be regarded as the 911 of Japan. Its iconic beauty, modular
mechanics, and desirability inspired Dave to heed to Datsun's famous racing
campaign of the '70s, "Dare to be different."
American heads spun when the 1970s ultimately snuffed out their beloved horsepower-drunk
muscle cars. As the world watched them squirm for performance, Japan was
busy developing the 240Z to bring a new thrill to American roads using
balance, harmony, and technology.
"Datsun didn't invent the overhead cam engine, or disc brakes, or
independent suspension but it has a habit of incorporating these
sophisticated systems into brilliantly conceived and easily affordable
cars." (Car and Driver; June, 1970)

Sunburst 240z | Jonathan Buhler
We had the idea to shoot Jonathan's Z with his fiance modeling in it (which
she is shown 2 times in the video), but with them being so busy with
college classes and definitely with Jonathan getting ready to graduate
prior to this video, we didn't have much time to film what we wanted. We
did manage to get some clips shown in the video just because they asked me
to do a photo shoot of them. Towards the end of their semester, we finally
schedule a last shoot to finish things up, but unfortunately we didn't
because of unexpected calls of Jonathan's new job at Nissan. So we agreed
to just work with the clips I already have and honestly I think it came out
quite beautifully even though it's a small video, but videos don't always
have to be long. So here's the Sunburst orange 240z.
This gorgeous sunburst orange 240z has been worked on for so long by
Jonathan and his dad (I believe this is correct information) and I'm pretty
sure they are proud of what they have built up to this point. If you have
picked up Modified Magazine's June issue in 2011, you would have seen this
car feature along with his beloved Supra. Here's the article from the
magazine which you could find here
"Jonathan Buhler has car-guy blood in his veins. His father bought this '73
Datsun 240Z back in 1979 from the original owner (the classic first owner
tale of a little old lady who only drove it to the corner store and back),
and on Jonathan's 15th birthday passed it down to him since it had been
collecting dust in the family garage for eight years. Jonathan's other
ride, a '94 Supra TT 6-speed, purchased from his uncle in California,
recently met a less auspicious end.
When starting to restore the family Z, there weren't a lot of well-known
sources for S30 parts, but thanks to his local Nissan dealership Jonathan
was able to put his Z back in tiptop running condition. But, of course,
Jonathan had bigger plans than just a basic resto for his Z. "What you see
in these pictures is nowhere near the end for this project, but only time
and my college budget will tell when it'll be finished," he says. "It
already has a lot of my blood, sweat and tears rolled into it, and I'm
particularly proud of the fact that I've kept the original L-series motor
in it." No RB or SR swap for this Z purist, and if you've ever heard a
modified L24 straight-6 on full song, then you know why Jonathan has
decided to keep his in service.
As for his ill-fated Supra, Jonathan tells us, "After getting it off the
shipping truck, I started modding it with anything I could get my hands on.
I tried not to go overboard, though, keeping the body stock and leaving the
stock twins in place, instead going for more of the stance look. I guess I
hit the spot because my buddy Mike Burroughs from Stanceworks did a blog
feature on it. Sadly, last month I was involved in a pretty bad accident
and the Supra is no more. This car really meant a lot to me and to see her
gone is heartbreaking." Hopefully seeing her one last time on the pages of
Modified is a suitable farewell."
"Why We Picked It (Modified)
One of the all-time great Japanese sports cars, Jonathan Buhler has done a
bang-up job restoring and subtly updating the appearance of his 240Z.
Although we're partial to the bumperless and fender-flared look when it
comes to classic Fairladies, a bit of a motorsports-inspired exterior would
go nicely with the roll bar and SCCA-spec SU carbs. It's still tough to
fault the clean factory lines and sparking Sunset Orange paint on

1973 Datsun 240Z 4spd Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1973 Datsun 240Z. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
