The mid to late 70s were not kind to sports cars. Combine the oil embargo and stricter government regulations on both fuel economy and safety and you have a recipe for the Mustang II or the AMC Gremlin or even the Chevy Monza. Basically we are saying style got tossed right out the f’ing window in favor of safety. Thankfully, Nissan was able to navigate these unfriendly waters by sending us the Datsun 280z. Improving on the already successful 240z from the early 70s, the 280Z – Nissan Fairlady in Japan- embodied sports car style and performance in an era of wheezing, government regulated crap on wheels. Thanks to the introduction of fuel injection, **the two seater 280z with single overhead cam, 2.8 liter in-line 6 put out 149 horsepower to the rear wheels through a 4 speed manual. With a sticker price of $6,200, the 280z was produced from 1975 through 1978.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
