This ad for this Datsun 280ZX seems the perfect photo to illustrate the jump from the 1970s to the 1980s. The fashion is a mix of both decades as is the yacht/marina background.
I am not sure what to make of this unlikely couple flanking the car. I guess he is just the guy working on the boat. People don’t know his name, but they affectionately refer to him as “The Captain.” He is taking some time to admire this magnificent Datsun before transporting it to some exotic island off the coast of California where it is always summer and Loggins & Messina rock a waterfront bar nightly.
