Do they? I never thought so. Clarkson even said that the Datsun 240Z "is a cross between the Alfa Sypder and the E-Type Jag."

That picture is my inspiration lol. When I get mine (couple weeks, shipping from Cali), I'm gonna sell the wheels (custom made $4,000 wheels, should sell easily) for something more like the ones in that first picture, or some BBS wheels, and plasti-dip some matte white stripes.
