ABC Wednesday - Z

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


Z is for Z-Car .......




1986 300zx hood ornament



The hood ornament of a 1986 Nissan 300ZX.

This little Z-car is a classic and such a joy to drive.

Her beautiful styling and curves are unlike the new Z-cars of today.

She handles superbly, and there is nothing like having the T-tops off on a gorgeous summer day.

Shivering beneath the two feet of snow surrounding her, I am sure she is dreaming of warm summer days.

I know I am!

  27. Back in 1977 I had a metalic orange Datsun 280Z, the predecessor of the Nissan 300 series. I loved that car, but never really learned to judge the distance I needed to park because of the long front end. It was always a major struggle for me! I kept it until 1980, when I traded it in for a staid Buick Regal!
