Richard Madlangbayan wanted a stylish classic car that could perform as well as it looked. So when he found the 1972 Datsun 240Z, it was the obvious choice. Since taking ownership of the car, he has taken it to the next level with an RB25DET motor swap and enough go-fast goodies to bump the power up above the 500 horsepower mark.
