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.
Wow! Great car.
It’s what he says about the car that makes this a great video.
Oh great! Now John will really be insufferable!!
Beauty of a Z car, John. Great car, Great dude!!
My favorite line: “This (engine sound) is better than AC/DC.”
Time to dig out my 240
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) ?
John is a F%$kin rock star,and for those of you that dont know him,he is one of the coolest guys you will ever meet.Good for you John.
Thanks for posting the video. Ben & Dan You guys are the best. JNC Rocks!!!!!
Dennis, Side marker lights are off of a boat of all things. I made the billet housings for them.
Fanboy, The wheels are Pannasports 15X7, Lugs and center caps one off’s made by me.
Plasti dip in black..
And Speedgato,& Mr Big, Thanks guys.
Thanks for looking.
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.
