Everyone loves a show stopper, but Anthony Cabrera has taken it to a whole new level! Originally from Houston, TX, now in Hollywood, FL, Anthony has a special inspiration for this build, family.
This 1978 Datsun 280z took Anthony less than a year to build with eye-catching results. Once Anthony got the car, it didn’t take long to know exactly what he wanted to do.
Mods include an original color code from vin respray, shaved rear, fender flares, Msa z front lip, Msa rear spoiler, Tien springs, Tokico struts, Diamond Racing Wheels 16×10 -25 all around, 205/50/16 Bridgestone Potenza re760, Msa z twicepipes exhaust, Nardi wood wheel, Sparco quick release, Momo hub, OE Datsun wood shift knob, Corbeau racing seat ,Planted seat bracket, Fujita air filter, headlight covers, Motorsports Z SCCA approved front tow hook, Msa z 240z front bumper. Anthony’s favorite sites for parts were Msa Z and black dragon automotive.
Like any (and every) car enthusiast, Anthony’s main obstacles in building this beautiful Datsun were time and money. Future plans for the Datsun are a real set of wheels and maybe a motor swap. His dream car is a Zonda R and may have it in the works for a VIP Q45 or a Skyline.
Anthony would like to send a special thanks to his parents, Jose Torres, the employees of Infiniti of Coconut Creek, Dipworks, Inc and, yours truly, StanceMiami. He’d also like to add, “Thanks to everyone once again for everything. I feel blessed to accomplish the majority of my goals so far [for the Datsun].”
