VIDEO: Electric Federal does the Datsun 240Z

Electric Federal Datsun 240Z

Electric Federal has done some great videos of the Toyota Celica and Honda CB350, but in the latest video they turn their attention to the quintessential sports car that defined a generation: The Datsun 240Z. And the owner is none other than our friend John Williams, who does an superb job of eloquently explaining why the Z is such an icon.

    Nice video. I like the side marker lights – wonder what they’re from.

    My favorite line: “This (engine sound) is better than AC/DC.”

    I can 100% relate on the stereo – I actually almost regret putting sound deadening and a bumping system in my FB – I find myself more interested in listening to the wide open tuned intake manifold and 3″ exhaust.

    Damn, I’m a hi-fi audiophile and I never thought I’d say something like that!

    A beautiful car, and a great explanation of the love of a car. What, may I ask, kind (size and type) of wheels are on there as well as the center caps and lug nuts (covers) ?

    Cool car. I made some center caps like those for one of my old beetles. I may have to make some more and throw them on my minilites.

    Beautiful car John! My favorite “chorus” of the L is when you tip back in the throttle above 4 grand, what a sound! You just don’t get that in modern injected motors.

    Thank you guys for making the vid and to John for keeping another Z alive.
