The 1971 Datsun 240Z

Bite Site: In May of 2015, we wanted to start testing some Blackmagic Design cameras and we decided to start with the entry-level Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC).

For our test we put together this short documentary about the 1971 Datsun 240Z.

Thanks to Parktown Studios ( for the rental and support. Thanks to Aaron Sadhankar for his car and taking the time to make the film. Thanks to all the others who appeared in the film.

Japanbil treff i Trondheim

Da var nok et Japanbil treff i Trondheim over. Jeg fikk dessverre ikke vært på 2015 treffet. Men håper denne tradisjonen får leve videre.

Selv værgudene holdt tilbake uværet! 🙂

Mange pene biler å beskue, men potensialet er vel MYE større. Håper folket er ennå flinkere med å stille opp til neste år 🙂

1973 Datsun 240Z – Jay Leno’s Garage

Whether we like the Fast and Furious franchise movies or not, we car enthusiasts have to admit that they have some pretty cool cars in the movies. While the 1973 Datsun 240Z owned by Fast and Furious star Sung Kang is not featured in any of the movies, his particular vehicle is a star to many enthusiasts and Jay Leno gets to check it out and show it off to us in his latest Garage video episode.

The resto-mod 1973 Datsun 240Z was built with the input from Social Media, a project that helped mold a full restoration into an amazing wide-bodied, track-friendly, and naturally-aspirated RB26-powered Japanese superstar classic for the road. Enjoy the episode below.

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)
