1970 Datsun 240Z

 Another chapter in my ownership of 6 cylinder vehicles! This 1970 Datsun 240Z was totally stock except for the "Prime" Wheels. One of the cars I'd always wanted to own. It lived with me for a few years before moving on to a new home for a complete restore.

It was a good driver, comfortable, pretty fast and handled well. I even drove it in the snow a few times and thanks to the 50/50-ish weight distribution it did great. The mileage was fair and it had pretty good power for an oldie.  The only downsides I can remember were trying to keep the dual carburetors balanced and the nightmarish headlights. Yea, I could have changed them, but I didn't!
