CC Outtake: Silver Nissans, Old and New

CC 244 001 1200

It’s pretty easy to imagine that similar demographics quite likely bought both of these Nissans when they were new. The Datsun Z car was initially bought by true sports car aficionados, but it quickly morphed into the next hot fad, and a youngish man with a half-way decent job in the early seventies was very likely to gravitate to one. And I suppose the same thing could be said of the Xterra. 

This Z, like most of the remaining ones, isn’t exactly stock, but it comes across as a fairly tasteful mild custom, although I shot this at some distance. Maybe that’s for the best, as I prefer mine as original as possible, except for the cheesy wheel covers.
