Buying and selling a Datsun 240Z in the early seventies

In about 1972 in Palo Alto, my father bought a Datsun 240Z as a second car (after our family station wagon). I'm sure he had fun driving it, but I actually don't have any memories of riding it. He sold it when we moved to England for a year (1973-1974). The buyers picked it up in the evening and paid my father a couple thousand dollars in cash. My parents were nervous (and made me nervous) that someone (even the buyers themselves) might break into the house to steal the cash, but they found a hiding place for it, and in the morning, my father took the money to the bank.
