How The Datsun 240Z Was Created
Somewhere in my internet travels I stumbled across a page at zhome.com that walks you through the design process for the Datsun 240Z. It’s an interesting look at what could have been, or almost was, complete with shots of the clay models that were produced along the way. You might be surprised to learn that new U.S. safety regulations played a part in the design process. For me, the 240Z is one of the cool icons in the history of automobiles, making the recording of this process all the more important.
