The third in Stuart Macey’s “School Boy Dreams” series. The Fairlady Z represents the definitive version of the 240z. A relatively attainable sports car bumped to dream car status due to it’s unattainability in western markets.
“..we could go on making cheap economy cars forever, but by doing so, we would never be able to move forward in export markets. Nissan, and Japan as a whole, need to build something stunning, something original that would make the foreign manufacturers sit up and take notice of us.” – Yutaka Katayama
The story of the Nissan Z cars is all to familiar. A rouge executive sidelined by his counterparts leads a rag tag team of designers to create something pure and rooted in passion. Strategy guided by gut feeling, and the type of success that leaves naysayers on the dark side of history.
The 240z was designed by Yoshihiko Matsuo, who led a small team to bring Yutaka Katayama’s vision to reality.
Z cars currently hold the record for the best selling sports car series of all time with over 2 million cars sold
Made in the USA with 100% American Cotton.
