This is my "slightly" Modified 71 240Z with bored out Dual SU's and a 2.9LThis Z has run a best time of 12.804 @ 107.26 mph at Rockingham Dragway on normal street tires. even though it is LOUD, the Exhaust is VERY RESTRICTIVE as it was done with crush bends instead of Mandrel bends so when I'm at the track I drop the Exhaust with one hanger bolt at the back of the car and slide it all out in one piece. This run was done with a 3.54 rear end I have 4.11 in it now.

240Z vs. the Ozark Mountains
Some [conservative] horseplay in my 1971 3.1L 240Z before putting my new race motor away for the winter. This is NOT a performance driving video, just some fun on an awesome road.
This is first time I've driven the road, so I'm a little more confident after 3:00. (I found it on Google Earth then trailered my car there.)
Some highlights, since it's not exactly a concise video:
1:55 downhill stretch, crossing Beaver Lake
2:40 more aggressive driving begins
4:00 scared myself a bit
4:40 traffic encountered
5:00 engine vs. open highway
Referenced walk-around video of my L6 motor:
