Current Obsession: Datsun 280Z

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.

Cold brew coffee is taking over pretty much every coffee shop in existence, even the big chains. But if you’re the type of person who doesn’t like to spend money on things you can easily make at home, the Cold Bruer gives you that option. It uses a slow-drip method to create a drink that highlights the natural flavors of the coffee bean, while being attractive enough to sit next to (or replace) your traditional coffee maker. If you’re partial to the flavors and smoothness of cold brew and want to start making your own, the Cold Bruer is a good place to start.
