It's the age-old question, new school or old school? In this video recently featured on our Motor Trend YouTube channel simply called Project 370Z, Nissan asked its multitude of Z car fans to create the ultimate 370Z track beast. Fans also had the chance to pick a challenger for the 370Z, which turned out to be a Datsun 240Z. But in case you thought it wouldn't be a fair fight, rest assured this isn't your average 240Z. This particular example has the heart of a RB26DETT beating under the hood.
Built by Gordon MacSwain from Columbus, Ohio, the Datsun produces around 360 horsepower. The Nissan 370Z, built by Steve Lam, was a fierce contender as well, as it was equipped with a turbo kit from Greddy. The epic showdown took place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. So did the newer 370Z with advance technology win? Or did the Japanese nostalgic car show it who was boss?
