The 1979 BAAAAD1 Datsun Z – Click above for image gallery

There are many, many words you could use to describe this car, but the one we'll use comes straight from the seller: "unreal." Indeed. This 1979 Datsun is also called "The wildest Z on the planet period," which we would never contest based on looks alone. When you add the custom headers into side pipes, four-barrel Holley carbs, full roll cage and the Subaru rear end we might even throw "embarrassment of riches" into the mix. And we thought we knew what a rear wing was, but oh, we had so much to learn.

It's in Nevada if you're interested, and the sound is said to be so glorious that the seller will play it over the phone for you if you wish. At the time of writing, the bids were up to $13,105, but you don't have long on this one, so check it out in the gallery below before heading over to eBay to make your move. And please keep it above the belt when commenting on the photographic embellishment...

      Working for a major movie studio Lionsgate Studios I have to say if we were ever going to make a film about cars,speed ect this would be my choice for the car. This car on the big screen would be awesome. The use of the word Absurd is just way off base. This was a car that was built for a purpose To go fast and to look as wild as possible and it accomplished both tasks. If you were to compare this with the cars from The Fast n Furious there is no comparission those cars were kits that anyone could build to look like the movie cars this is not a kit.I have to agree with one description this us The Wildest Z On The Planet Period.

      $13,105? I hope that means you'll get that to get it out of the sellers hands. Still not interested though.

      This appears to be trying to look like the IMSA GTP ZX-Turbo (as perhaps is referenced above).

      The ebay description says: 'This car was built on a pefect Z with only 33,000 miles'.

      That's just not cool..

      Look at those curves and I don't mean the car.

      I don't know whose "modifications" are worse...the car's or the chick's.

      In the early 80's I remember seeing "IMSA"/Cafe Racers in car mags- long noses, long tails, wide as a bus.

      This is perhaps the worst example.

      Being from Hong Kong I have seen a lot of wild wanna be street freaks but I have to say whoever built this car had all the bases covered. The builder obviously was going for a all out race inspired look..and you know what? He did it that car looks like it just came from LeMans and after reading about the mods done to it I am sure it would blow the doors off american muscle. How this car could be called absurd is ????? I guess the person who orginally posted it has no idea what a real race car for the street should look like. Hats off to you because to me and many others here think this thing is way Bad in fact it is BADASS and I would love to have it but another thing the person who posted the ad missed was the car actually was bid up to $32,000 and failed to meet the rerserve and YES I was one of the bidders but did not have deep enough pockets for it.
