The Datsun 240Z was the first mass market Japanese sports car to hit the US market and it was fantastic. The 2-seater features a low driving position, peppy 150hp inline-6 up front, and communicative steering make for a great sports package.
Power comes from a stock looking 2.4 liter L20A SOHC inline-6, rated at 150 horsepower from the factory when new. The smooth revving inline-6 plays nicely with the 5-speed manual gearbox mated to the rear wheels.
If you want the JDM experience, you'll need to find a right-hand-drive example like this one. The seller states that the car was purchased by an overseas stationed US soldier who took it home with him when his deployment was over. The car has had a few owners since, and in 2010 it was given a quick make over to show in the Enkei wheels booth at the 2010 SEMA show.
