1980 only, by the t-tops that were released for the 1980 model year, in combination with the 1979-80 alloy wheels. this one is a coupé (2-seater) in GL trim. [S130]

i'm not sure if i'm understanding what you're trying to say, but the U.S. spec. 280ZX such as this was only ever sold as a Datsun.

these were badged in only two ways throughout the 1979-83 S130 production run.

the first, for the 1979 model year only, was "DATSUN 280ZX", like this:

and the second, for the 1980-83 model years, was "DATSUN 280ZX by NISSAN", like this:

datsun either way.

The 280ZX was not sold as a Nissan in the US. The first Z model to be sold as a Nissan was the 1984 300ZX. It's properly ID'd.

This was Rick's car in Season 1. I guess the club became more sucessful and he bought the Mercedes later on.

Someone might remove what you added. Which is another issue with Wiki. Even if you add information and properly cite it, if other users don’t think is worth mentioning they will remove it.

Dear Lord, LET IT GO!!! Nissan did not market cars in the United States under the Nissan name until 1982, and then it was as they were switching models over. This is a 1980 model, it is a DATSUN!
