Very often on this site, we are privileged to see a carefully curated collection. We come across owners who have finally acquired their dream car, and we see this love of iron, steel, and fire bridge the generations. But what about a car that transcends automotive enthusiasm, that needs no translation from Gearhead kanji?
This particular very pretty blue 1977 Datsun-Nissan 280Z is a single-owner car, currently daily driven, belonging to a gent who is not now and never was into cars. It doesn't attend car shows. It doesn't get pampered and spoiled. This Z belongs to Larry Lazzari and no-one else; it's a special bond, and just the kind of thing Yutaka Katayama would have smiled to see.
