The unofficial theme this week has been grungy, worn down cars here on LACS. Take for example this lovely 1980 Datsun 280ZX. This particular example of fine automotive engineering is the 10th Anniversary edition so it is a TRUE collectors car. Take note how it is parked up front in a “Clean Air” parking spot, as it justly deserves. The emission standards in 1980 were TOP notch.
Take my sarcasm with a grain of salt and have a great Valentines day (if you’re into that). Enjoy
Well that’s a wrap to the 2017 car spotting year. It’s been a fun year and we have spotted tons of cool cars and trucks.
This is the hodgepodge of all hodgepodges. Thanks for following along and I’ll see you in 2018 for another fantastic year!
Up for viewing today is a perfect example of a 1980’s Japanese sports car creation. Now let us all be honest with ourselves; the 80’s were a great time but emission standards and technology advancements were not favorable for the automotive industry. Cars became bigger and slower; lethargic for a lack of a better word. Looking back at sports cars from the 1980’s is sort of like looking at a well worn sock on the floor; you lament it’s stinky performance but it still has the intrinsic value of function and style – So you keep it around.
Other Datsuns we’ve spotted:
1976 Toyota Pickup Truck
1984 Nissan 720 Single Cab Pickup Truck
