Re: Nice car I don't think it needs to be a roadster to be a sportscar, but I do agree that a civic need not apply for the moniker either. My Father had a 260 in the same colour, I once had it up to an indicated 140 (it was modified) and it was still accelerating when I chickened out and backed off. Great cars for not a lot of money, relativly maintance free (compared to European cars of the time) and stylish. It is not a well known fact, but Pininfarina did have a hand in cleaning up some of the 240's final shape. I like the fairlady Z better.. it had a longer nose and no upper grill.
