The Z-car refers to a series of sports car made by the Nissan Motors. The first sales of the Z started in October of 1969. The origins of the Z car are seeded as early as 1912 when a young man by the name of Masujiro Hashimoto founded the Kwaishinsha Motor Car Company, and produced an automobile called the DAT. It was designed by a team led by Mr Yoshihiko Matsuo, head of Nissan’s Sports Car Styling Studio. All variants had a 4-wheel independent suspension consisted of MacPherson strut bar in front (borrowed from the Datsun Laurel C30) and Chapman struts in back.Discs front and rear drums were standard. 1970 240Z was introduced American Yutaka Katayama, president of Nissan Motors USA operations, known as Mr. In 2004, Sports Car International named this car number two on the list of Top Sports cars of the 1970s. One of the most attractive Japanese cars ever produced, although they have almost entirely disappeared from American roads within two decades, probably because most Japanese cars once the rust had insurmountable problems. Cosmetic changes included a redesigned dashboard and console, seat trim and interior door panels and rear tail lights and redesigned as goggles to have moved inside the grill.
For the 280Z, engine size was increased again, this time to 2.8 L, extending bore L26 L28 engine to create trust and a Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system was added.
S30 also proved a popular and affordable base for V8 conversions and other, usually a Small-block Chevrolet and Ford. several vendors make kits and informational books to allow conversion to be made almost bolt-in process. From 1996-2002 Nissan has not given Z car line except in Japan where they sold 300ZX (Z32), until 2000 the Fairlady Z. Body construction was semi-unitized, where the front chassis is a sub-frame held by four rubber-isolated mounts and rear chassis is part of the unibody. This design gave a smoother and more quiet ride than a full unibody car, and allowed maximum space for the already small rear seat and trunk.
Engine choices were plentiful, including the standard 230-cid six-cylinder, optional 250-cid six-cylinder, and 327-cid small-block V-8 in either 210 or 275-horsepower versions.
Chevrolet's venerable 350-cid small-block would make its debut in the 1967 Camaro, and would not appear in other Chevys until 1968. Standard transmission for first-year Camaros was a column-mounted three-speed manual, with a floor-mounted four-speed optional. The new Chevy Camaro was chosen to pace the Indianapolis 500, only the third time for a Chevrolet to receive the honor.


Most replica pace cars were equipped with the 375-horsepower 396 big-block, others had the 295-horsepower 350 small-block motor. With nearly 80 factory options and 40 dealer accessories, the Camaro could be ordered to nearly anyone's liking. The RS package included electrically-powered headlight covers, revised tail-lamps, and special RS badging. A 350-cid V-8 came standard with the SS package, with both the 325 and 375 horsepower 396 engines available. Externally, non-functional hood-mounted air inlets, special badging and body stripes distinguished the SS models from the others. Exterior features included a special hood with functional air-intake, trunk-lid spoiler, and dual stripes running across the hood and trunk lid.
To keep the 302's advertised power rating less than one horsepower per cubic-inch, the factory figure of 290-horsepower was measured at 5,300 rpm.
With the new third-generation Corvette stealing the spotlight at Chevy dealers, 1968 saw only minor changes to the second year Camaro, which included a mild grille redesign, divided rear tail-lamps, and side marker lights added to the front fenders and rear quarters.
Interior console and gauges were new, and a passenger-side grab-handle was available with either one of two custom interior groups.
Side vent windows seen on 1967 models were gone, replaced with Chevrolet's new fresh-air-inlet system called Astro Ventilation.
First-year Camaros had been equipped with single-leaf rear springs, which contributed to unwanted wheel hop under hard acceleration. Rear shock absorber mounting was also redesigned; the passenger-side shock passed behind the axle, and the driver's side shock mounted in front of the axle. The SS350 continued to use the same hood as last years, while the SS396 got its own, adorned with twin non-functional intake ports. A new 350-horsepower 396-cid option was added, and aluminum cylinder-heads were now available with the L-78 big-block. Initially nothing more than an option code designation, the Z-28 moniker stuck, and now models so equipped sported either Z-28 or 302 badges. Dual low-restriction mufflers, heavy-duty radiator with temperature-controlled fan, and 15x6-inch wheels were included with the Z-28 package. Racing legend Mark Donahue, driving the blue #6 Camaro, won 10 of the 13 Trans Am races this year, easily winning the 1968 series. The rear decklid spoiler, first seen on Z-28 models, was now available on all Camaros, and buyers could now combine the Z-28 package with the RS package.
Consistently finishing ahead of Mustangs on the track, the resulting publicity helped overall Camaro sales.

This model is sold in Japan as the Nissan Fairladay Z, that model was exported as the Datsun 240 Z.
In the early 1960’s this partnership gave Nissan the opportunity to design a new sport car prototype.


The engine compartment had been designed to accommodate Chevy's 396 big-block, and easily accepted the 325-horsepower L-35 motor, later joined by the 375-horsepower L-78 big-block.
The two-speed Powerglide automatic could be had with any model, and on big-block equipped cars the Turbo-400 three-speed automatic was offered. A dual-four-barrel cross-ram intake manifold was available, using twin 600-cfm carburetors.

Through there awesome look, great reliability, and strong performance, the Z car were always known as an affordable automobile.
In 1984 the “Nissan” badge was used for the first time on the US market instead of “Datsun ”, and the same year was the year when the third generation Z-Cars was unveiled.
The Nissan Z cars currently hold the record of best selling sports car series of all time through their five generation selling more than 1 500 000 cars. Without meeting their expectation Yamaha was rejected by Nissan and turned to Toyota making the 2000GT.
The 2000GT was becoming a fierce competition to the Z series, by then the USA Nissan President realized the importance of an affordable sports car. The primary solution in making an inexpensive car was sharing parts among other Nissan vehicles. The output was 160 horsepower for the normally aspirated ones and a 200 for the turbocharged ones. On the Japanese market, where the emission was not a problem, the engine of the 300ZX produced 230 hp.
The 300ZX was offered with either five-speed manual transmission as standard, or four-speed manual transmission as an option.The 300ZX saw its first updates in 1986. The car featured now side skirts and rocker panel flares; the fiberglass spoiler was replaced with a durable plastic one. It was a turbocharged model offered with pearl white paint, stiffer springs and matched shocks, a unique front air dam, paint matched wheels, Recaro seats, and a viscous, limited-slip differential.In 1989 the production of the 300ZX Z1 was replaced with the Z32. The Z32 had the same engine as the Z31, this is why the name 300ZX was kept, but the chassis had several changes throughout its production run between 1989 and 2000. With a new design, the new Z-Cars series also had a better handle and acceleration than the previous 280ZX.
It also remained a success model on both North American and Japanese market (only in 1986 70.000 units were sold). The 300ZX was offered for the first time with a V6 engine, with bigger output: 160 to 200 hp for the turbocharged versions, or even 230 hp for the Japanese market.
