Paulo Tabora's 1972 240Z aka TributeZ

We met Paulo mid 2022 through our close friend Taka (KyushaHouse Taka).  Paulo came into our showroom and explained his vision on the build.  But, his process was much different than any other we ever heard of.  Paulo and his father acquired the car about 10 years before the build began.  Paulo, an avid overall car enthusiast always pushed the car away to build others.  In 2021 Paulo's father passed away from COVID-19 and Paulo took the silver-lining of the loss to build the car in his father's memory.  Paulo's goal was to debut the build RUNNING at SEMA.  Datsun Garage is proud to have helped make his dream come true. Thank you for the opportunity Paulo!
