Nostalgic Wednesdays: The Wangan Midnight Devil Z

If you have been paying attention to our blog in the past we have featured two Datsun S30 240Zs, Khanh Le’s and Van Luong’s. Therefore it is no secret that we hold a special place in our hearts for this classic piece of Japanese art.  Which leads us to this week’s Nostalgic Wednesday, the Wangan Midnight Devil Z.  Wangan Midnight is yet another classic Japanese Manga/Anime from the mother land that glorifies the art of the Wangan. 

A Sinister Love: Khanh Le’s 1972 Datsun 240Z.

It was 10:00pm on a Saturday night when I received a phone call from Mayday David.  David was out at a local car meet when he stumbled upon a classic beauty that we had yet to see in our neck of the woods.  At the exact moment of the call I was in the symphony listening to the legendary Nobuo Uematsu (the creator of the Final Fantasy music) getting my nerd on.  It was intervened by the call that went a little something like this, “John, where you at?” David said.  I responded, “Jones Hall, the symphony”.  David responds, “Well, you better get your suited up ass over here to this meet, because there is a Datsun you HAVE to see”.

Graveyards, fitting for the Sinister.

We have featured a Datsun before on this site, Van Luong’s, which, in my opinion is pretty damn clean and hard to top, so if these guys are making me come out to a meet in a symphonic suited up fashion, then, this HAD to be an awesome whip, and they were right. One thing I was not prepared for was the perfection that I was about to cast my eyes upon, Khanh Le’s 1972 S30 240Z.
