Datsun Roadsters, Parts, Restoration, Service, Z Cars & Books

Datsun Sports was started in 1981 when Mike Young, a seasoned San Francisco master mechanic, set out to answer his true calling in life: to help others enjoy Datsun sports cars. For Mike, this calling became a very deep obsession. Today Mike's obsession grows unabated. Fortunately for Datsun roadster and Z car enthusiasts, this obsession has produced a gold mine.

1967 Datsun 2000 Convertible

This late 1960s roadster, advertised as one of The most collectible cars right now on Yahoo! features an infectious, throaty engine and a petite, curvy body as the spirited predecessor to the Nissan Z line. The introductory year was produced in small numbers. A brand new Datsun 2000 sold for about $3,000 in 1967. The closely related 1968 Datsun 1600 sold at Gooding and Company's Amelia Island auction for over $50,000 in March.

Mike Young’s datsun wins Best of Show
at 2011 Solvang Car Show

Mike has a little trivia as well: Richard Klimmert, from The Netherlands! is the Long distance visitor!

Solvang Datsun Show and Vintage Race Report 5/1/11

(excerpted from Z-Car Blog)

This year’s show brought Datsun owners from all over the country and even the Netherlands! There were 68 cars including roadsters, 510s, Zs and others from showroom-stock examples to wildly modified beasts. Here are a few show highlights from a roadster-owner’s point of view; it’s not hard to see that we love our cars and there is a dedicated following to keep them on the road!

Mike Young is known as a top Datsun restoration specialist and he won Best in Show with his fully restored and concourse-correct 1967.5 2000. This is the most coveted model of all Datsun roadsters with less than 1000 cars produced and even fewer still in existence. Mike has great attention to detail and it shows throughout the car even in the engine bay:

Rob’s RB-Powered Datsun 240z

(excerpted from Z-Car Blog)

One of my hobbies is 1/24 scale model car building. In the past few years I’ve focused on building scale replicas of friend’s personal cars. Rob’s 1970 240z holds a special place in my Z heart and I thought it would be a nice challenge to make a model faithful to the real car.
