18th Annual Motorsport Auto Z-Car West Coast Nationals Z Show Ride-Along
If you didn't make it out to the WCN this year, then hop on the back of the
golf cart (it's a flatbed, so there is plenty of room!), sit back, and
enjoy a ride-along through the car show. Unfortunately by the time we were
able to start, a number of Z's had left early (be sure to boo loudly at the
empty spaces), We're just amateurs at this, so the video is a bit rough,
but you still get to see many of the awesome Z's. An unnamed Motorsport
employee said that the camera was mugged just before this video was taken,
and the reason for the lens smudges. That is his story, and we're sticking
The background sounds of the show were great (except for the squealing golf
cart brakes, which fortunately we covered), but not allowed due to the
music playing in the background... So we chose "The Change", "Pure
Performance", and "Epic". Great titles to go with Z-Cars!
The Motorsport Auto Z-Car West Coast Nationals is a 3-Day event celebrating
the Nissan/Datsun Z. This video is from the Z show, on Sunday, April 28,
2013, on Collins Avenue in Orange, California.
A link to lots of still pictures will be up soon on our websites.
1973 Datsun 240Z
Up for sale in our Tampa Showroom is this gorgeous 1973 Datsun 240Z.
Growing in both rarity and popularity, these cars are climbing the ladder
to some of the most desirable import classic cars in the market. Built
before the American transition between the name change of Datsun to what is
now known as Nissan, these cars were a true symbol to the Japanese muscle
car era. This was the newly designed body style donning the name "Fairlady"
in Japan, this was the first generation of the Z cars produced in the
American Market. This particular one is built with the original engine, but
had the heads replaced with the 2.8L heads brought out in later years of
the Z cars. This additional Boost of
power gives this old Z a good amount of pep to compete with the American
muscle cars. This car is backed up by a 4 speed manual transmission, to
allow ultimate control. A lot of these cars in the overseas market during
this era came standard with a manual since it was believed very strongly
that the driver should maintain almost all control of the vehicle. The
interior is lined in a beautiful leather seating to give you the best
comfort available. Besides the standard options included in these cars, the
modern convenience of an iPod hookup was installed. Also equipped is an
AM/FM radio so there should never be a problem finding a good song with
these choices. The exterior of the car is painted in a beautiful black with
light metal flake, similar to the design used on the Black Pearl edition in
later years. Take a ride in this classic Import Muscle and you will
understand what the combination of power, handling and style truly means.
Options include A/C, AM/FM Radio, iPod Hookup, Seat Belts, Leather Interior
and a Numbers Matched Engine. To see this car in better detail, including
