No glib joke about kidneys today, because it’s with great sadness that we announce the sale of Vic Laury’s 1972 Datsun 240Z. He is no longer able to enjoy this car because of his recent health conditions, and must reluctantly offer it for sale. As most of you from SoCal know, Vic is a beloved figure among SoCal’s Datsun and nostalgic car community. He’d frequently volunteer to help with the major shows, and always brought his big-hearted, warm personality to any gathering, along with one of his beautiful Nissans. You may recognize him from his pale yellow Fairlady Roadster, mustard yellow 510, 521 pickup, or this beautiful 112 Yellow 240Z.
Because of his health, Vic has been in physical therapy for two years and hasn’t been able to enjoy his cars during that time. The 15×7 +0 SSR MkIIs this Z were purchased new two years ago, and have barely seen any use. As a mechanic for many years, Vic made sure all his cars ran impeccably. If you’ve seen this car in person at JCCS or any of the other SoCal Datsun gatherings you know the quality of its restoration. He is sad to see it go, but hopes it finds a good home. Go to eBay to see the full auction. Vic will also be at the Eagle Rock Datsun-Nippon swap meet on March 18 if you’d like to stop by and say hi.
