Some 35 years ago Datsun (now Nissan) introduced the 1970 Datsun 240Z sports car, emphatically disproving the perception that Japanese automakers could only produce economy cars. Designed specifically to appeal to the American market, the Z car has enjoyed long-term popularity with its sporty styling and impressive performance. Z car fans are loyal and numerous. Over 1.4 million Z cars have been sold worldwide, including 1 million-plus in the U.S. The five generations of Z cars include the latest version, the 350Z introduced in 2003, which has refueled interest in Z cars. This book will thoroughly cover the history of this breakthrough Japanese sports car, and will include official Datsun/Nissan photography and memorabilia such as advertising and international marketing materials.

About the Author:

Pete Evanow has worked in the automotive industry for 18 years, primarily in marketing roles. He has been involved in various Nissan motorsports programs and in a mid-1990s program in which Nissan sold officially restored 240Zs.

Review:

Classic & Sports Car (UK), February 2006 (circ.: 80,600) This exuberant homage to Nissan’s famous Z car range is unashamedly biased toward the company’s largest foreign market, the USA There’s a good pace to the story [and] the 350Z is covered in detail, making this a comprehensive work ... Recommended.”

Sports Car, February 2006 (circ.: 50,000) Z: 35 Years of Nissan’s Sports Car is chock full of information, not just pictures although it has plenty of those, too. The story of the Z car is told from an insider’s perspective, which is a refreshing change from the slew of automotive books that are packed with facts and images, but lack knowledge of the inner workings of the subject’s manufacturer. This book is ideal for any Z lover, be it a multi-time Z car owner or someone who has merely admired the Z car from afar.”

Classic Motorsports, July 2006 (circ.: 40,000)

“The author was actually very involved in the Z Car Store and Stillen SMZ 25th anniversary of the mid ’90s, so he has some unique insight and photos/artwork from this era.

"This is a well-done book that must be part of any Z collector’s library, or a good general read for the average car fan.”
