100 Other Beautiful Cars not on the London Telegraph's 100 Most Beautiful Cars List, 48 Datsun 240Z

Alright, the Datsun (Nissan) 240Z won't be voted the most beautiful car on anybody's list, but it has its angles. The other thing it has is a profound impact on automotive history.  When I was growing up in the 1970's, these things were everywhere. While the British sports car was fading, the Japanese sports car was ascendant.  Solidly made and dependable, but Z was, for it's target niche, perfect.
