Datsun 1974 260Z & Datsun 1975 280Z

In all its glory

How can you forget the commercial slogan “We are driven”. It’s here in all its glory.

The ’70s almost meant speed and to auto enthusiasts that meant horsepower. 1974 saw the introduction of a 2+2. 1975 got the Bosch L-jetronic fuel injection.

The commercial shows the driver using the choke to start the car.
