    Default Where Can I find "280ZZZP Video Game"?

    Well, I am looking for a 280ZZZP Video Game. Where can I find one?
    Is that a fund game??? Is it worthwhile having it in a garage?

    I know there were 2 versions......... Finding one is one thing, but shipping is another thing.... Anyone know?

    I think you might find more modern PC driving games more satisfying.
    Pretty "old school" graphics, just dotted lights to indicate a curvy road. That said, it was my favorite game at a local pizza parlor "back-in-the-day".

    From the link just posted:

    This game ranks a 0 on a scale out of 100 (100 = most commonly seen, 1=least common) in popularity based on census want list records.

    That's not very encouraging ...

    The listings shown are only for flyers/brochures; not for the game itself.

    Thank you very much for your info. Broken one, I am not interested in. So I called this store that has one for sale. Phone is disconnected, and I left messages with other listed numbers(cell?)

    Now Do you see 280Z car in the screen at all?

    I found this, it appears this game has no graphics or pictures of actual 280Z car......

    Its just a Night driver game with the ZAAP car on the exterior(Upper Headboard) . I have all of the original paperwork and brocures from when it was introduced in late 76 .Nissan / Datsun joined with Midway to put the Zaap car on the game i am guessing to appeal to a young market .I am updating mine with a series one "wood" steering wheel with Datsun horn button and a 240Z wood shifter knob .

    You youngsters have no concept of how primitive these old arcade games really were when you've grown up with PlayStations and XBoxes with games like Forza that blow away the best games of just a few years ago and rival the graphics rendering capability of multi-million dollar airliner flying simulators from 20 years ago. We're talking about a CRT console video game in a wooden cabinet that was produced the same year (1976) as the first Apple home computer and years before IBM ever thought of a PC (1981). There's probably no 280Z displayed in the game because that would have been too hard to produce an image that actually looked like a 280Z. The original game was probably designed as "night driver" to avoid using color for drawing trees and sky and grass. The sample video looks like you're driving at night so the whole screen is black except for these white reflective markers on the each side of the road. At the time it was an amazingly realistic simulation of driving at night and kids were willing to insert quarter after quarter in the arcade to play it. After all it was the first 3D driving game; previous driving games were merely 2D. I bet the 280 ZZZAP version of Night Driver just had pictures of a 280 on the cabinet to capitalize on the popularity of a hot new car and therefore suck in more quarters.
