    1978 Datsun 280 Z.

    Drove it right out of the dealers show room. There were two and the original painting on this was the Oakland Raiders Silver and Black. In fact it was sold to me by one of their HOF linebacker. He had two, one for him and one for his girlfriend and they broke up.

    So he put this one on the show room floor when my ex-wife and I drove by. Made a deal and drove it out right then and there. Now it belongs to my son and it still runs.

    When I first moved here there were three or four. The past couple of years, I haven't seen any.
