Chris Bury and his father have spent the last year restoring and modifying their 1973 Datsun 240Z for the 10,000-mile, 37-day Peking-to-Paris Rally, one of the more hardcore vintage events that exists in all of motoring. The impeccably clean Z has full suspension, skid plates, off-road tires, and all the lighting, accessories, and safety systems one could ever ask for. And before Chris shipped the car off to China for the start of the rally, he invited Matt to meet him in the desert and take it for a little spin.

A majority of the chassis and assembly work was performed by John Coffey of Benton Performance, and the car and it’s participation in the 2016 Peking-to-Paris is dedicated to his memory and hard work.
