Interesting read on how the 240Z came to be.

Oh, the memories -- having a toddler, an infant and a 240Z. What child seats, that's what the back was for.

This is an identical car, color, even the wheel covers. Mine was a 1972 and it was our daily driver from 74 to 78. Sold our 1966 Porsche 912 to buy it. Wish we could have kept both. I'd have to dig through hundreds of box of slides to find a photo. The 240Z's were very fast but so cheaply made. We should start a thread listing the cars we've had.
