Today's car pic is another one of the very first cars that I ever lusted after so much I went looking to buy one.
That's a 1981 Datsun (remember them? They would become Nissan in 1986...) 280ZX Turbo, at the time it was imported, it was the fastest Japanese car imported into the US. The model that I found and fell in love with was a 1983 version, in black, with tinted windows and the four-spoke mag wheels.
Sadly, it was sold before I could secure financing, and I wound up buying a VW GTI, which really wasn't a bad substitute - the GTI may not have been as fast off the line as the "Z", but it could corner like it was on rails and it was pretty good on gas, too. I briefly flirted with an '81 "Z" but it was in rough shape and not worth the $3K the guy wanted for it given all the rust and rot.
But yeah, if I hit Powerball I'm going to find an '83 and restore it...
That is all.
