58022 Datsun 280ZX real scale reference 1
 
As you can see, Tamiya's Datsun 280ZX is a copy of an original racing car. This car was driven by Paul Newman (yes, the actor!) that made it to the winners circle in 1979 with his Budweiser-Canon-Pioneer sponsored Bob Sharp racing car to the C production Championship. Newman refused to take money for driving, instead he got paid by Budweiser in BEER ! Note the correct stickers and the correct, one, black front light.
