We may take it for granted now that the Japanese make great sports cars, whether it's a Mazda MX-5 or a Lexus LFA. But back in the late 1960s and well into the '70s, it all came down to one car, and that was the Datsun 240Z.

The prototypical Japanese sports car and ancestor to the Nissan 370Z we know and love today, the original Fairlady Z came at a time when the market for small, nimble sportscars was dominated by Europeans. It would go on to earn its place in the pantheon of classic sports cars, particularly as those who remember seeing it invade American roads in their childhood are now coming of age, and with it have earned the financial wherewithal and good taste to enjoy them for what they were.

In its latest video, the cinematographical artisans at Electric Federal have immortalized one owner's Z. The four-minute clip below is well worth a watch or two.
