    HLS3018859 (red, std): Purchased on May 11, '71 in Kitimat.BC. My first car. Recently refurbished with many thanks to CZCC member, 'Blue', without whose wisdom, resourcefulness and fortitude it would not be what is today.

  1. Here's a November update: Nissan Tells The Story Of The Z Proto Design (msn.com)
  2. Here's more from today: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/autos/news/watch-nissan-s-boss-drive-the-new-z-he-calls-it-fantastic/ar-BB1atOfj?li=AAggFp0#image=BB1atxeM|2

  4. Here's more on the newest Z: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/autos/news/nissan-shows-off-the-retrolicious-z-proto-to-the-public/ar-BB1a1gVt?li=AAggFp0
  5. I agree 100% The Z has to remain a stand alone in the Nissan stable. If there is one positive esthetically, the grill is better proportioned in the concept SUV due to its higher stance. Here's a review: https://www.hagerty.com/media/opinion/z-sus-is-just-alright-with-me/ The 240 had an attractive (although useless) bumper that occluded the view of the lower half of the grill. Here's hoping the 400 grill height can be reduced by a 1/3rd to approximate Ante's law of proportions. In the alternative, divide the grill horizontally with a band of chrome or brushed metal. Cheers, George
  6. Much better....The 'rectangle' grill detracts from the sexy 'curves'.
  7. Lights look great, the grill not so
  8. Here's one: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a33942473/nissan-z-teaser-details/?source=nl&utm_source=nl_cdb&utm_medium=email&date=090820&utm_campaign=nl21384592
  9. Disappointing Update: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/autos/news/nissan-400z-to-be-revealed-late-2022-on-sale-in-2023-report/ar-BB18sBlC?li=AAggNb9#image=BB18sBlw|2
  10. Thanks, Jeff Without providing a proper reference and simply from a failing memory, Nissan sold ~180,000 240Z's in four years (1970 -1973). Also, not to forget, that was from a standing start. With the same mix of product, price and presentation, my hope is Nissan will do it again. Cheers, George
  11. What if Nissan were to invite the members of its Z car family (that being ourselves) to submit personal vision(s) of what we would like to see incorporated in the 400 Z design ? I hope to be positively in awe, much like I was 50 years ago and similar to today's GM response to its new Vette. Just thinking out loud George

  13. A March 23rd update: It's been reported in a major Canadian national newspaper(National Post) that Nissan has just filed to registrar trade protection for a 2021 400Z with retro styling: https://driving.ca/nissan/auto-news/news/nissan-files-retro-looking-trademark-for-400z-suggesting-cars-return Here's the dream: To own a 1971 and a 2021......WaHoo!!
  14. It was, 'Valspar Plastic White'. The project was worthwhile doing as the lenses don't show any regression.
