    Meet Zella. My 1975 Datsun 280z

    I see these guys at most of the car meets here. Super friendly guys who are very passionate about what they do.

    Thank you! The wheels are Rota RB 16*7". And the tires are 205/50/R16.Took a lot of back-and-forths to get the tire size right but pretty happy how it came out.

    So the door tag was lost a few years ago, apparently they removed it when they were doing paint re-touchups and they never put it back (photo below). I looked up the VIN number against the production date and it looks like its a 75. Maybe one of the previous owners replaced the bumpers? Anything else I can look at to confirm if its a 75? Love all the investigative work on this forum!

    Good eye! The louvers are in the shop getting painted the same color as the bumpers. Not sure if I'll put em back on the car, but will try em on after the paint and decide.

    So it does have an antenna, but it's on the other side. You can see it in the photo below. The fender mirrors are after-market, and came originally with just one mirror on the drivers side. It's a 280z imported from the U.S.

    They aren't a lot of 'em here but they are definitely getting popular. You've probably seen the famous yellow one out of Dubai: https://www.instagram.com/p/BhGokKjn-b_/

    Thank you and Thank you!
  8. Hi all, just wanted to introduce you to my 1975 Datsun 280z, who we lovingly call Zella. I acquired Zella about 4 months ago, after looking for a Datsun S30 for more than 1.5 years. She's far from perfect, but she is so much fun to drive. She just got a re-paint (of the original color), had her exhaust replaced with an MSA one, and had her ugly 280z bumpers replaced with some minimal ones. Her wheels have also been replaced to give it that modern touch. Hope you like it. Before This is what she looked like when I first got her. Had to get rid of those ugly bumpers. After And this is what she looks like now. Needs some coil overs soon to give her that proper stance and some work in the interior. But for now, she's so much fun to drive!
