Driveway Outtake: Datsun 280ZX 2+2 – Living the ’70s Dream

Someone’s got themselves a real time capsule here in their driveway: a pristine Datsun 280ZX 2+2, with the obligatory rear window louvers!

I’ve written all I can about these over the years, so you all are going to have to provide the color commentary.

What this car proves beyond a shadow of a doubt is that humans are highly prone to fads. In the seventies, they were willing to have their little kids ride in the back of this. Today it’s the back seat of an SUV or pickup. Of course those are infinitely more practical. Is there hope for humanity?
