This is just tragic. Initially, what caught our eye was this photo of a battered 240Z on Cardomain. Turns out, it was a post about how the 27 year old driver of this Datsun was rear ended and paralyzed as a result of a speaker that was dislodged and thrown forward by the impact, striking him in the neck. The crash looked pretty horrific to begin with, the decades-old Z clearly no match for a larger, heavier pickup.
I’m sure most nostalgic car owners (ourselves included) are guilty of taking a half-finished project out for a spin. Even with everything in tip-top shape, old cars simply don’t have the safety features of a modern automobile. Please be careful out there.
