These Datsun 240Zs Are Animals to Drive
The only thing rarer than the sight of a Datsun 240Z in the English countryside is the sight of two 240Zs in the English countryside. Spend enough time on the backroads of Kent, however, and chances are Mel Streek and his son, Ollie, will scream past you in their pair of Z cars. Rest assured, you’ll have no trouble telling the two cars apart. The “Ratsun”–so nicknamed for its rough exterior–belongs to Mel, though after purchasing it he quickly found that he was seldom able to drive it because Ollie was always in it. This sent Ollie on a quest for a 240Z of his own, and he found it, in Copenhagen, in the form of a pristine 1973 model. This automotive odd couple can now be found barreling through the country lanes in tandem. Not that having his own Z has stopped Ollie from eyeballing his dad’s car–he’d like to own both. After all, Ollie’s car may be easier to drive, but it’s Mel’s that gets the attention of onlookers. “Mine’s the one that actually turns the heads,” says Mel, smiling proudly. For now, though, Ollie can take solace in the fact that these two Datsuns seem destined to share a garage–if not an owner–for a long time to come, as both of the Streek’s refuse to part with their 240Z.
