Chevrolet Introduces First Hardtop Corvette Convertible Open-air driving has always been a part of the Chevrolet Corvette’s heritage. In fact, when the Corvette debuted in 1953, it was available only as a convertible. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible builds off that heritage as the first hardtop and mid-engine convertible in Corvette history. “We put the world on notice when we introduced the first midengine Chevrolet Corvette a few months ago, and now we’re raising the bar with the first-ever hardtop Corvette convertible,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet U.S. vice president. “And the convertible will be priced only $7,500 more than entry 1LT Stingray coupe.” First and foremost, a convertible The mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray was engineered first and foremost as a convertible. The convertible maintains the tunnel-dominant structure and use of high-integrity die-cast parts found in the Stingray coupe. The team engineered the hardtop to stow seamlessly into the body, maintaining the Stingray’s impressive ability to store two sets of golf clubs in the trunk even with the top down. The convertible also keeps the coupe’s front storage compartment, which can fit an airline-spec carry-on and a laptop bag.

Volume XVI, Number 10

The hardtop provides a quieter cabin, increased security and a cleaner look compared to the previous softtop designs. “Our goal from the beginning was to make sure customers didn’t have to sacrifice any functionality, performance or comfort when choosing the hardtop convertible,” said Josh Holder, Corvette program engineering manager. “We managed to keep the same design theme as the coupe, as well as the exceptional storage capacity and track capability.” Inspired by jets Like the coupe, the Stingray convertible’s design was inspired by fighter jets. The tonneau cover features aerodynamically shaped nacelles influenced by the housing used for jet engines. The nacelles, which were also used as inspiration on the Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle (CERV) I and II, as well as the Corvette SS and SR2 concepts, help reduce air recirculation into the cabin and provide a remarkably exotic profile with the top up or down. The tonneau also provides a rear power-adjustable window and vent for mid-engine cooling. visit www.Highline-Autos.com to read full story

from our unique ‘Auction in the Round’ format, which allows all of our guests to be close to the excitement that is a signature of Russo and Steele.”

Located just south of the Loop 101 and Scottsdale Road, the 20-plus-acre site will offer clients and guests easy street access, ample parking, including valet service at the entrance, and five football-length white tents providing high visibility and weather protection.

Highlighting the January docket is a 1-of-1 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6 454, consignment #5154. This “King of the Streets” represents the pinnacle of General Motors performance in the Muscle Car Era, at the time snatching GM’s top horsepower spot from the Corvette.

In addition, the centralized location in north Scottsdale ensures proximity to all Arizona Car week events, which bring the world to the Valley each January.

With a factory-advertised 450 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 500 ft-lbs of torque at 3600 rpm, the LS6 was also the highestoutput Chevelle ever offered from the factory. Special-order Hugger Orange paint, on correct black vinyl interior, makes this the only LS6 so equipped.

“We are at the picture-perfect location for everything that has to do with Arizona Car Week,” says Drew Alcazar, president and CEO of Scottsdale-based Russo and Steele, which also holds annual auctions at Amelia Island, Florida, in March and August in Monterey, California. “Our team has put together an incredible layout that gives sellers and buyers the best platform to experience an unforgettable year,” he adds. “I’ve never been more excited to have that microphone in my hand and feel the crowd’s energy

Frank Aazami’s Featured Listing

SONORAN SERENADE written by E.J. Webber “The 8,550 square foot symphony of a home is elevated above the Sonoran desert like a crown on a regal knoll - and all around are unobstructed views where no one else can ever build,” says Frank Aazami, listing agent with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Private Client Group. His associate listing agent, David Arustamian, explained that the greatest variety and some of the most interesting homes are found in Fountain Valley, known for its impressive water namesake, once the tallest in the world. The showcase estate that appears like a giant grand piano from above the air is located here. It is a Tuscan style home replete with unobstructed city light views and scenic views of glorious mountains such as Four Peaks, the Superstition Mountains, the McDowell Mountains, and also boasts its own natural desert landscape within the property’s 3.3 acres. Saguaro Lake is nearby as well as numerous shopping and dining adventures. “No expense was spared in construction and it took five years to complete this vast estate that is an entertainer’s, as well as a car enthusiast’s dream home,” David told us. Another interesting observation by him was that there are “no hard corners” to be found within the interior nor the exterior areas that are smooth and rounded. Even the pattern of the pavers used on the driveway, are circular in nature.

From the first moment one enters the private gated entrance, this masterfully designed place boasts exquisite outdoor verandahs, water features, fire-pits, courtyards, swimming pools, outdoor kitchen and BBQ, Jacuzzi, grotto waterfall, streams, and an outdoor kitchen/BBQ. Eight air-condition garages with Travertine flooring must be seen. Of course, the meticulously kept landscaped areas with Palo Verde trees, Saguaros, and other Sonoran plants of the low rise home, reflects the composition of the natural state of topography and sense of the desert. The current owner was in the business of creating perfumes with notes of all sorts that he said was to: “Create a symphony of wondrous scents, just like creating a symphony of architectural nuances.”

Multiple formal and informal dining areas along with the chef’s kitchen features granite counter-tops, custom Alder cabinetry, dual dish washers, Subzero fridge and Dacor appliances round out the joy of cooking and entertaining indoors. This plan also allows the rest of the home to be effortlessly open with tall walls of windows. Nature thus becomes the central element of design. The next owner of this home will have more than just a sophisticated interest in architecture and the property’s resources; the buyer will undoubtedly eschew the ordinary and have a passion for the finest. A consistent palette of warm woods, stacked stone, marble, and glass reflecting and integrating the landscape - is what makes the “music” of this home so enchanting – a true Italian concerto not to be missed.

They have done that perfectly inside the extraordinary home of 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths where you will find a split-level floor plan with two Master Suites on one side, and an additional two Junior Suites and guest quarters. Over-sized windows, abundant natural light and remote control chandeliers are additional touches that make the composition of this house so lovely. The flow is a natural part of the ease of living in this property. A 12-seat movie theater along with a wet bar makes it supremely comfortable to entertain guests and family; a delightful Italian 750 bottle Wine Cellar adjacent is enticing indeed.

Workuity Helping to Build Homegrown Business Connections written by Stephanie Fogelson Last year, Forbes issued a report detailing the rise of the gig economy in the United States. From freelance writers to part-time Uber drivers, from graphic designers to wedding photographers, more than 57 million Americans (representing one-third of the country’s workforce) is considered part of this gig umbrella. So, where are all those people working? While Starbucks and local craft coffee houses offer free WiFi, creating makeshift offices for people, a newer kind of officeyet-not-an-office environment has become more popular and more available: the co-working space. Co-working spaces offer a respite for creatives and startups and entrepreneurs from noisy coffee shops or their homes, and provide an environment that resembles a place they used to work and can create, but without the restrictions of a typical corporate environment. And these co-working spaces in the Phoenix area are booming and becoming more and more pocket-friendly for freelancers and startups who need a place to work and do business. Not just for entrepreneurs anymore, high-end facilities like Workuity in Phoenix and Chandler, feature over 60 shared offices per location. And while the WeWork’s of the world are continuing their

Volume XVI, Number 10

expansion west here in the Phoenix area with clean cut office spaces in the city’s thriving and revitalized galvanized downtown district, a locally grown co-working company is planting its own flag and doing what it can to let its clients create their own cultures rather than flying under a corporate banner. Workuity, which houses two natural light-filled offices in the Phoenix area (2390 E Camelback Rd in Phoenix, and 3133 W Frye Rd in Chandler), offers its tenants-everyone from one-off graphic designers doing their own work to small tech startups holding down a conference room-an opportunity to build out their company culture while making solid working connections with those under the same roof. At both locations, tenants can take advantage of everything from coffee bars to conference rooms to mailing addresses to networking events, something CEO Dan Kite stresses is a big selling point for people wanting to make the right moves forward. Kite, whose background stems from the hotel and theater industries, saw the growth opportunity that comes with coworking. Names like WeWork stand out, but local projects, like Workuity, are paving the way to boost the different

industries in Arizona that are seeing their own surge, like tech and research and development. “Small companies want big time amenities. Our spaces are designed to bring those amenities to them while providing a space that will enhance the company’s image. Their modern design is built to impress,” Kite notes. Earlier this year, Phoenix and Tempe landed high on the list of top cities in the United States to grab real estate for tech startups or annexed offices for tech-geared companies. The list, compiled by global investment and research firm CBRE, shined a light on Arizona’s growing tech sector, something mirrored by CBS’ own list placing Phoenix at number three on the country’s fastest-growing tech cities. In another report from CompTIA, Arizona touts significant growth in the tech sector’s available jobs, including a net job gain year-over-year of 5,127 and a 174-percent increase in emerging tech jobs, like data science, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity engineering. What’s more, the report goes on to illustrate that the tech sector supports about $31 billion

Volume XVI, Number 10

of the state’s economic development. With that in mind, it’s easy to see why Arizona has seen a major influx of investors ditching places like New York City and San Francisco to expand co-working spaces here in the desert. To help create Workuity’s bright and open layouts, Kite has brought on the expertise of Venn Construction, the Scottsdalebased commercial building company responsible for projects in the health care and banking industries. Kite, seeing the future of work changing before our eyes from a traditional environment to a more open and self-sustaining one, used Venn’s background in unique and wide-ranging fields to create spaces that everyone, no matter their industry and background, could be creative and create something they can individually connect to. Both of Workuity’s locations host lunch and learns for everything from SEO to social media, bringing together professionals who want to make connections with new business opportunities who share a table or sit one office away.

APEX Motor Club Brings the Radical Experience to Arizona written by Nick Esquer photography by Chris Boesel

Arizona has always been known as a paradise for auto enthusiasts. From wide freeways for commuters to cruising along the desert highways to heading up north on a motorcycle trip, Arizona offers up plenty of opportunities to get behind some kind of wheel with more ease than other locations. But for those who take their hobby of driving to the next level, Arizona is also an enviable location to rev your engines and flex your racing muscles. That’s what the people at APEX Motor Club have been promoting since they opened their doors earlier this year. APEX Motor Club, based in Maricopa, houses multiple tracks for different types of autos and their drivers looking to test out everything from speed to handling on its road course circuit to off-road area. Members of the motorsport country club, the only one of its kind within a major metropolitan area, can look forward to private garages, karting track, a revved up clubhouse with swimming pool, gym, and restaurant in the coming months as APEX builds out its grounds in phases. APEX is also a unique place for members to hop in the driver’s

seat of a new show-stopping ride, like international race car brand, Radical, a company that just teamed up with APEX to expand its North American network. APEX has placed an initial three-car order of Radical’s best-selling SR3 track and race car in order to support its intensive program of more than 275 track days per year. The 2.27-mile circuit is already in operation with an additional 2.25-mile Phase 2 planned for construction in 2020. “APEX Motor Club is excited to bring the Radical race car to our members and facility, due to its ideal combination of capability and driver enjoyment. The Radical SR3 is perfect for drivers of all backgrounds from gentleman racer to professional driver,” said Jason Plotke, President & Co-Founder of APEX Motor Club. “We feel this is an important product in racing DNA, so much so, that we have incorporated the Radical to be the first official class in our upcoming Member racing series this year. We are looking forward to growing the partnership and showing our members just how proficient the Radical race car is on track.” Radical, based in the United Kingdom, currently offers up eight heart-racing rides, including the SR3, a 226bhp bolt of lightning on wheels now for sale at APEX.

“As an amateur racer it’s rare for me to be offered a test drive in a purpose-built sports racing car, so it was a treat for me to test drive the Radical SR3 at Apex Motor Club, where I am a member,” said Richard, a member of APEX. “While the Radical SR3 is certainly a no-nonsense race car, it is also engineered and built in such a way that running costs and maintenance should be moderate, given the performance levels. If you are ready to advance your track driving to the next level, the Radical SR3 is worthy of your consideration. But it comes with a warning- it’s highly addictive!”

looks to continue its expansion into the world of consumer racing with its introduction to the Arizona market. “In looking for partners to represent Radical in its ‘Race the World’ mission, APEX stands out as the ideal track facility to enjoy our product, with all of the driver training, support and social elements demanded by our customers,” added Joe Anwyll, Radical Sportscars’ CEO. “North America accounts for over half of our annual production so we know what a valuable addition Apex Motor Club’s unique layout, position and business offering will be to our drivers.”

A Volvo Valet debuts this year which will shuttle you to and from your parked car to the entry gate. The Apex Cup, courtesy of the Apex Motor Club, returns for its second year. The cup recognizes the top cars displayed at the event. The first phase of the club recently opened and the club is accepting members. For more information on Apex, go to www.ApexMotorClub.com.

SCUDERIA SOUTHWEST SEPTEMBER 2019 SCOTTSDALE MOTORSPORTS GATHERING

POST PHOTO COVERAGE written by Peter Volny Scuderia Southwest, after a summer hiatus, held their restructured cars and coffee event, the Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering, on Saturday September 7 in the same location at the Scottsdale 101 Shopping Center. At over 800 cars the event had grown so large that it was becoming too hard to manage so the guys at Scuderia Southwest implemented a new club membership and limited the event to under 300 cars. Membership dues include not only access to the event, but to other planned club activities including drives and rallies, seminars and tech sessions, brunches and dinners, and special discounts. The event continues to be free and open to spectators. This month the rows were filled with Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, Porsches, Aston Martins, Corvettes, Vipers. Attracting the most attention from a large and enthusiastic audience were a very rare Koenigsegg, a Porsche 918 and two of the new Ford GTs. Scuderia Southwest also hosts the annual Concours in the Hills event each February where all makes and models are welcome. For additional details visit www.scuderiasouthwest.com. Scottsdale 101 Shopping Center, 7000 East Mayo Blvd., Phoenix, AZ 85054

The modern twin to the previously unveiled DB4 GT Zagato Continuation, DBS GT Zagato forms the contemporary half of this unique pairing and will pack 760hp through its 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 power unit. This uniquely ambitious project, created to celebrate the centenary of the legendary Zagato signature, pays tribute to an icon of the past and creates a classic of the future. The DBS GT Zagato was unveiled for the first time in finished form at the Inaugural Audrain Newport Concours in Rhode Island. With a price tag of $7.3 million - plus local taxes - each pair represents the most valuable new sports cars yet built by Aston Martin as the luxury British car maker celebrates its longstanding association with the world-renowned Italian coachbuilder and design house, Zagato. Indeed, this unique collaboration extends a remarkable creative partnership spanning almost 60 years. One that has consistently generated bold and breathtakingly exciting designs, the latest of which is the DBS GT Zagato. Shown in Supernova Red – a paint colour exclusively reserved for the DBS GT Zagato ‘Centenary Specification’ –

Inside, the DBS GT Zagato being shown in Rhode Island features rich Caithness Spicy Red leather, Zagato ‘Z’ seat quilting and satin twill exposed carbon fibre fitted to both the paddle shifts and steering wheel. Featuring a world first, DBS GT Zagato utilises the first automotive application of configurable carbon and metal 3Dprinted interior finishes.

Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance Debuts October 25–28 written by David M. Brown Showcasing 150 collectible cars, from a rare 1903 Cadillac to debut vehicles including a 2020 Cadillac CT5, the inaugural Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance takes place October 25–28 in various venues around the city.

Night Gala, 7 to 10:30 p.m., at the Frank Gehry-designed Keep Memory Alive Event Center, with entertainment, a hosted bar and cuisine by Chef Wolfgang Puck. Money raised will benefit the TechForce Foundation, including scholarships for students to pursue post-secondary technical training.

The four-day event is the creation of Stuart Sobek, a 32–year veteran of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and other car shows throughout the world.

In addition, the first Helene Awards will be given to innovators for outstanding design, development and future of the automobile. They honor Helene Rother (1908–1999) the first female automotive designer in 1943, working at General Motors for Harley Earl, then Nash Motors and leading Helene Rother Associates, which specialized in automotive interiors, furniture and stained-glass windows.

“At a recent Pebble Beach, I asked myself, ‘Why not have an event at this high-end level in Las Vegas?’” says the long-time Las Vegas resident. The inaugural Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance distills the best of the shows he’s experienced. “It’s inspired by all of them with some unique Las Vegas elements,” Sobek adds.

On Saturday, the Concours d’Elegance, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., will exhibit rare and unique automobiles from around the world in a judged 16-class competition at the DragonRidge

GreatGarages The ‘Z’ Hits 50, with Speed and Style written by David M. Brown ‘Love Cars, Love People, Love Life.’

Spitfire and my friend’s sisters Chevelle SS 396/375,” he recalls. “Both were a blast, but neither approached the style and balance of the Z.

–Mr. ‘K’ A revelation, a huge hit, a company game changer, a winner out of the gate: Merging affordability, styling, driving dynamics, balance, reliability and lots of character, the Datsun 240Z enjoyed thumbs-up at its debut at the October 1969 New York Auto Show. In the first year, 40,000 were sold. And, during the first decade, a record-setting 520,000 units found welcoming garages.

“While $3,626 wasn’t necessarily cheap in 1970, it was a real bargain for a car that looked fantastic and could blow away muscle cars on any curvy road,” he adds. “That so many first generation Zs are still out there and selling briskly to enthusiasts after half a century speaks well of both the car’s solid engineering and the great care so many owners took to love and maintain them.”

Whether you loved ’Vettes, muscle cars or exotics, you knew immediately that the Z-car from Japan was special. And, in its 50-year run –– albeit with a six-year production hiatus –– the sports car from today’s Nissan has continued its appeal into a sixth generation. So much so that ZCON, held since 1987, annually unites marque lovers from more than 60 clubs through North America; in 2020, the Z soiree will be held in Nashville.

A Fairlady to the 370Z: Six Generations of Fun The 240Z represents the inspiration of two innovators, Yoshihiko Matsuo (Matsuo-san), the president of Datsun/ Nissan in the U.S. in 1965, and Yutaka Katayama (Mr. ‘K’), the master of advertising and marketing. Three years of research and design modifications by their team resulted in the landmark two-seater six-cylinder coupe for the North American market.

“The 240Z had the combination of styling, power and balance that we had seldom seen, and it had a fun quotient that was outside the box for Japanese manufacturers at the time,” says Steve Yeager, a recently retired communications associate with Nissan North America, based in Franklin, Tennessee. “We all remember our first drive in one.” Nissan’s global headquarters is in Yokohama, Japan.

Since the inaugural models of the Fairlady Z in Japan and the Datsun 240Z for the 1970 model year in the States, 40plus examples have followed, including a variety of company and model anniversary editions up to the 2020 370Z®. Significant examples of Z-Cars are in the Nissan Heritage Collection at the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, although it is not open to the public. Nissan also curates a collection in Zama, Japan, with hundreds of examples of cars and automobilia beginning in the early 1900s.

He was 16 in 1970 when he first drove an early 240Z. “At the time, I was used to driving VW Beetles, a 1200-cc Toyota Corolla and a wide variety of ill-handling V-8 American cars. I had loved driving my sister’s boyfriend’s Triumph

1971 Nissan 240Z Heritage

The first 240Z (S30 chassis) had a 2.4-liter single-overheadcam inline-6, producing 150 horses at 6,000 rpm, with 148 pound-feet at 4400 rpm –– not oodles of horsepower in today’s spec charts, but the curb weight was just 2,238 pounds, so the car put down a respectable quarter mile of 17.1 seconds at 84.5 mph. A 4-speed manual was standard, and a 3-speed automatic became optional in 1971.

In 1983 for the 1984 model year, the 300ZX (Z31 chassis) began the third generation as the first V-6 Z. The SOHC Z31 was also available as a turbo. Normally aspirated versions were 160 horsepower, and the turbos produced 200 horsepower. Special editions were issued for Nissan’s 50th Anniversary in 1984, and the Shiro appeared in 1988. Actor and BSR racer Paul Newman competed in them, and this was the winning car in the 1985 All Japan Rally Championships.

They were competitive on the track, too, popularized by the Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) and Bob Sharp Racing (BSR) teams. One also took first in the 19th East-African Safari Rally in 1971, driven by Edgar Hermann and Hans Schüller. The car repeated two years later, piloted by Shektar Mehta and Lofty Drews.

Various 300ZXs have also starred in in various films: Blind Date, with Bruce Willis and Kim Basinger, which featured a Z31 300zx; Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, a Z32 300zx; and the Fast and Furious movie series, which was written based on a 300ZX Z32.

Following the 260Z, produced only in 1974, the 280Z hatchback couple debuted for 1975 with a 2.8-liter 170-horse engine, larger bumpers, design updates, a grille-less front, race-inspired spoiler and interior upgrades. The additional power helped offset U.S. emissions requirements and the added size and weight.

The fourth-generation model, 300ZX (Z32 chassis) arrived in July 1989 for the 1990 model year and was in production until 1996 in the U.S.; it continued through 1999 abroad. With about either 222 horsepower (nonturbo) or 300 horsepower (twin-turbo models), the new car was wide and low with slanted headlights. It won Motor Trend’s “Import Car of the Year” and Automobile awarded it “Design of the Year” and called it one of the “25 Most Beautiful Cars in History.”

Representing the second generation, the 280ZX (S130 chassis) continued from the 1979 through 1983 models. In the first year, a T-top was available. Top speed was a strong 130 mph.

A six-year hiatus followed for U.S. cars. Says one enthusiast, “The market was changing, and sports cars were getting unaffordable. The units being sold were declining. Nissan Zs were no longer appealing to their customer base due to the price. They outpriced themselves along with the Toyota Supra and Mazda RX 7.”

The 280ZX was also the first generation of the Z car to offer a turbo-charged engine. A 2-seater and 2+2 version were available in normally aspirated and turbo models. Additionally, some models also had an optional digital gauge cluster.

2006 Nissan 350Z Redline

2020 Nissan 370Z Coupe 50th Anniversary edition

Nissan also received capital from Renault, which helped with the new car, the 350Z (Z33 chassis), beginning the exciting fifth generation in 2003. The car featured 287 horses and 274 pound feet of torque tied to a 6-speed close-ratio manual.

He has two 240zs, including a Persimmon-on-white “time capsule” 1972 with 4,400 miles and the original Bridgestone tires; he refers to this as “ORIG240.” He purchased the car in 1994 after seeing it at the 1993 ZCON in St. Louis. That year he also founded the Maryland ‘Z Club, of which he remains president.

Promoted as a bargain sports car with strong aftermarket support, the 350z was embraced by the public as well as race and drifting teams. The very first limited-edition NISMO (Nissan Motorsport) edition of a Z was offered for the 2007/ 2008 model years, with special ground-effects, chassis upgrades, braking, handles and other trim features.

That 240Z won the ZCCA Gold Medallion in 1997 and in 2010 the Nissan Choice Survivor Award at the 40th Anniversary of the Z at ZCON in Nashville, Tennessee. The car has been featured in numerous magazines.

Finally, the new 370Z in 2009 had updated styling, with 240z inspiration while advancing the styling and refinement from the 350z. The 370z was first available in coupe or a NISMO and later as a convertible. Today’s sixth-generation Z features a DOHC 24-valve V-6 aluminum alloy engine, producing 332 horsepower and 270 pound feet of torque. Improvements were also made in reduced weight and improved driving dynamics.

“I’ve always loved the early 240Z styling, especially of the 1972 models, the long front and sleek rear design. The Z was an affordable sports car that looked expensive. Its smooth inline 6-cylinder engine and independent suspense made it a blast to drive.” He also owns a 1996 300ZX, a 2006 350Z Touring and a 2013 NISMO 370Z. And, he is almost finished restoring his fifth car, a 1972 240Z, Persimmon on a black custom interior.

Love at First Z’ight The Z interest has allowed him to travel in the country and take two trips to Japan. “The ZCONs are like one big family, of course, the common dominator being the Z. I call this activity my once-a-year Z-family/friends get-together.”

Hop in to join the 50th birthday cruise guided by five Z fans from throughout the United States sharing the joy with Highline Autos readers: •Mark Lambert (Finksburg, Maryland) –– He’s been a “Z fanatic” since 1980 when he purchased his first Z, a whiteon-red 240Z, a 1972 edition, which he sold later in the early 1980s. He did his first ZCON in 1990 and has attended 29 out of 32. Many he has helped in implementing.

“To this day, every time I drive my 240 it makes me smile,” he says. “Now being able to own other models of the Z, it proves to you how advanced they’ve become but still in an affordable price range. I can’t imagine not ever owning a Z.” •Diego Perri (Clifton, New Jersey) –– An Argentinian by birth, Perri came to the United States when he was 14. Married, he lives in northern New Jersey and works in

He owned about six Persimmon-liveried 240Zs before his current ones.

advertising and real estate and is known for automotive photography. He is vice president of the New Jersey Z Car Club.

Z cars, three of these rare limited editions, Millward has had Zs in the family since he was a child. His mother had a 280ZX and a 300ZX Z31 and his great aunt a 260Z: “I was attached to them.”

He purchased his first Z in 1992, which he no longer has. “These cars are special to me because they are the very first Z car I ever saw as a kid growing up in Argentina,” he explains. “They are THE reason I fell in love with them and why I have my current collection.”

At 16, he bought the 86 300zx from his mother and, young and reckless, wrecked the car in a ditch. A week later, he bought a 1989 300ZX which he still has today.

They were rare in Argentina. “Their styling was like nothing I had ever seen before, and they had very advanced features like a fully independent front and rear suspension, disk brakes all around, electronic fuel injection, optional turbo engines, advanced aerodynamics and many other things,” he says.

The earliest of his cars is a 1984 300ZX Turbo Nissan 50th Anniversary Edition (#368 of 5,148), with an automatic and other features, including a sound system with four subwoofers in the bottom of the seat cushion of both badged seats, wide front fenders and rear flares and two-tone paint. His 1986 300ZX IMSA Widebody (# 1 of 2) is “full of mystery and lost history,” a car that was somehow released to the public. “It’s not known why or how this was done,” he says.

He has 10 Z-cars: a 1978 280Z (S30); 1983 280ZX Turbo (S130), the last year of production; a 1986 300ZX; 1988 Shiro; 1989 300ZX Turbo (Z31); two 1990 300ZXs; a JDM (right-hand-drive) 1991 300ZX (Z32); 2005 350Z (Z33); and a 2012 370Z (Z34).

Rusted by East Coast weather and damaged by mishandling, the car is scheduled for restoration as a tribute to the original IMSA class 300ZX with a contemporary twist, including a VK56 motor with a twin turbo and all the supportive mods. “My plan is to have the car completed for next year’s ZCON event held at Nissan headquarters in Nashville,” he says.

“Z cars have the perfect combination of size, styling, performance and price for me,” he says. “I think Z cars combine just the right amount of cruising comfort but also performance for a street sports car, without being too soft or hardcore.”

Finally, his 1988 300zx Turbo Shiro Special (#250 of 1002), released in celebration of Nissan's victory against Porsche

at Le Mans, he calls “the most sought-after 300zx Z31” and “considered to be the best-looking Z31 from factory.” Features include custom three-stage pearlescent white paint and matching pearl-white wheels; Recaro seats; stiffer springs and shocks and a viscous limited slip differential.

•Mad’ Mike Taylor (Grapevine, Texas) –– He’s monikered ‘Mad’ in Z circles because he organized several challenging road rallies in the early days of the Z Club of Texas. Retired at 77 after serving as the CFO for a printing company near the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, he was a founding member of the Texas Z Car Club in late 1986. He led the national ZCCA [Z Car Club Association] from 1992 to 2002, when Chris Karl succeeded him.

The 300ZX cars were pivotal. “This was the Z car that started making drastic changes in design, comfort and also performance,” he says. This includes headlights, fender lines, improved brakes, wide wheels and aerodynamics changes as well as other features as refined as an optional digital compass and an accelerometer to measure g-force.

He owns a 1971 240Z with a 3.1-litre engine, which he bought in 1979. He also cherishes a 2008 350Z, whose body kit was gifted by the president of NISMO. Its driver’s side visor has been signed by John Morton, Peter Brock and Steve Millen, and the passenger-side visor mirror by Mr. ‘K,’ Randy Rodriguez (associated with the 370Z), Matsuo-san (240Z) and Yama-san (300ZX). The engine is signed by the designer, Motohiro Matsumura.

“The idea of all these comfort creatures were to produce a one-of-a-kind experience in this GT sports car that was designed for long distances,” he says. An IT manager at an automotive group that owns several dealerships through Colorado and Utah, he and wife Trisha have been married for nine years and have had three children, although they lost their first-born, Alex Jr., in a home accident. The cars have helped recovery. “Through battling depression and grief, the Zs that I own are what help keep my mind busy and occupied,” he says. “You can consider them being therapeutic for me.”

Volume XVI, Number 10

The 350Z is special for him because it continued the cars after Nissan announced the 300ZX was the end in 1996. “I was fortunate enough to visit Mr. K in 1995 and met with Nissan to plead the Z enthusiast’s cause. Happily, they listened, he recalls, noting that he was also involved in the development of the 350Z during several pleasure trips to Japan.

“Zs are fun to drive and affordable. They handle well on both the street and at the track –– even better at the track with modifications,” he says. “After meeting Mr. K in 1995 at the Atlanta ZCON and becoming good friends with him, it is easy to see his spirit is in every Z, and that alone makes them special for me.”

Today, the Karl-family collection includes nine Z cars, from the 240Z through 370Z. All are manuals, except for the 1987, which was originally purchased as an automatic for his mom and step-dad to enjoy. First-generation Zs in his collection are a silver-on-black 1970 Datsun 240Z, HLS #201, a 1969 production vehicle, which is in restoration; 1971 Datsun 240Z, canary yellow on black, which will begin restoration this winter; and a 1977 Datsun 280Z, silver on black with 44,500 miles.

•Chris Karl (Chardon, Ohio) –– The executive director of ZCCA for 12-plus years and his wife, Karen, have two daughters, Alexia and Brice, who grew up around other Z’thusiasts and traveled to ZCONS and other community events in North America. “Every year is another adventure,” he says.

Five 300ZXs represent the third and fourth generations in the collection. These include a red-on-black 1987 Nissan 300ZX Turbo, which has been on road-trips throughout the country; 1991 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, a 2003 ZCCA Gold Cup, which was used in the Nissan 350Z launch campaign from late 2002 through 2004, pumped to 800 bhp; 1993 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo convertible, which he restored 2011–2013 with an engine and 5-speed swap and a self-performed custom interior and paint.

“The love for the Z is integrated into our household. We have two garages for all our Z cars,” he adds. “We’d have more but we’re running out of room.” His first Z was a 1983 Datsun 280ZX, champagne on red: “It felt good; the ergonomics ‘fit’ me, and it had beautiful styling,” he recalls.

A 1994 Nissan 300ZX convertible, “Black-Emerald” on “Bone” is one of two in the collection belonging to Karen. “Underhood, it’s updated with a variety of cosmetic updates from ZSPEC, a company my wife and I started six years ago, which she now runs full time to help enthusiasts dress up their cars,” he says.

with thrilling performance, artful aesthetics and a unique driving feeling,” he says. “Mr. K’s adage, ‘Love Cars, Love People, Love Life,’ rang true to me when I first attended a ZCON in 2001 and met him,” he recalls. “Each generation of Z emulates its time-period, but the ‘Z-ness’ (Hiroshi Tamura’s term) is unlike any other sports car feeling I’ve ever experienced.

From the next year, a T-top-equipped Nissan 300ZX Coupe has Artic White paint and a Charcoal leather interior with interior elements signed by Mr. K.

“You feel connected with the car, and that feeling extends into your life and through the enthusiast community. Many of us consider our Z-friends as extended family –– and ZCON our annual ‘family reunion.’”

Finally, his sixth-generation 2009 Nissan 370Z is a NISMO edition, #196, with features such as Akebono brakes, NISMO forged wheels and others. “In 2008, I first ventured to Japan as part of the annual ‘Z CraZies’ enthusiasts trip and met the designers of the upcoming 370Z NISMO; after that, I had to have one.

The writer thanks all of those who helped in this story, in particular, Steve Yeager, formerly of Nissan North America, Kyle Torrens, Nissan North America, and Chris Karl.

“Yutaka Katayama’s vision for the original Z car was to create an affordable car for the regular driving enthusiast

2019 Toyota Tacoma

tundra and tacoma from toyota written by David M. Brown Tacoma or Tundra, midsize or full size, V-6 or V-8, V-neck or button down? At first encounter, the smaller Tacoma exhales youth, adventure and “bring-it-on” fun, especially in the unmistakable Voodoo Blue TRD Pro model my son and I recently drove in Phoenix/ Scottsdale. In contrast, the brawny Tundra 4x4 has the demeanor of a work-ethic family-provider truck, although, equipped with the TRD Sport package and 4 WD as ours was, it’s also equal to off-the-jobsite thrills in backcountry, desert and other challenging terrain. Our model sported fetching but somewhat more traditional Barcelona Red livery. The “TRD” acknowledges the inspiration of Toyota’s many years of offroad racing experience in vehicles so equipped, explains Joshua Burns, Product Communications analyst with Toyota Motor North America in Plano, Texas. Available in six models, Tacoma offers the package variously as TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro. Both of 4-wheel-drive vehicles had sufficient-plus power for the demands of everyday city and highway driving as well as hauling, towing and off-roading. The Tundra’s 5.7-liter V-8 generates a solid 381 horses at 5,600 rpm, with 401 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm and a 4.3 differential for good towing power. The 3.5-liter V-6 Tacoma, standard for the TRD upgrade,

Volume XVI, Number 10

produces 278 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm, with its maximum torque of 265 lb-ft at a higher 4,600 rpm. The differential ratio is 3.909, providing good towing capacity and fuel economy. Both vehicles have smooth, efficient 6-speed transmissions, although these are different units. Manual is not available in the Tundra, while certain Tacoma models still offer a manual option. My son likes the stick and regularly despairs of its decline in the marketplace. I’m happy with today’s superb automatics, probably because I remember GM 2-speed Powerglides, which needed coaxing and sometimes a little prayer to get going, let alone get going quickly. On a large 145.7-inch wheelbase and 228.9 inches bumper to bumper, the 5,640-pound Tundra is perhaps the better choice for the construction worker or repairperson or anyone who needs to haul large materials, tools or products regularly. We had a Crew Max with a short bed, which would work for most applications, especially families needing that full-size rear door for car seats, children and packages. A long bed for serious hauling is available in the Double Cab configuration. The towing maximum for our Tundra was 9,800 pounds and maximum payload, 1,560 pounds, which will eat up most chores, at work or home. At 212.3 inches in length, the 4,425-pound Tacoma TRD Pro has a maximum of 6,400 pounds towing and 1,175 pounds in payload, perhaps a better match for someone carrying

lighter loads, making smaller deliveries such as my son, a computer technician. The Double Cab is offered in two versions, such as the one we had on a 127.4-inch wheelbase with a 60.5inch bed, or the 140.6-inch wheelbase with a 73.7-inch bed. We both preferred the V-8 power of the Tundra, although the Tacoma was more than capable in the scenarios we were able to create. The Tundra posts a 14 combined mpg, while the lighter Tacoma a 20 mpg, a significant difference for some. With the ECT (Electronically Controlled Transmission) engaged on the Tacoma, we seemed to accelerate quicker and make lane changes more efficiently. Toyota also recommends this for driving in mountainous areas or when towing. “It essentially provides different timing for the engine and transmission to allow for each gear to rev higher into the power range for the situations where optimum performance is needed,� Burns notes. The Tacoma TRD Pro is also equipped with a Multi-Terrain Select system, allowing the driver to choose between different terrain settings such as loose rock, mud and sand by regulating wheel spin. A Crawl position is also available for mogul-type climbing; this is not offered for the larger, heavier and highercenter-of-gravity Tundra. Both vehicles also had lifestyle-enhancing upgrades, such as, in the Tacoma, a moonroof and the Entune Premium JBL Audio

Volume XVI, Number 10

system featuring a 7-inch-high-resolution touch-screen with split-screen, hands-free phone capability, music streaming via Bluetooth wireless technology and always helpful Siri. The cars also had safety features such as extremely helpful Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Dynamic Radar Cruiser Control (DRCC), a radar mounted to the front of the vehicle to detect vehicles ahead and adjust speed accordingly. This overrides the vehicle cruise control, returning to the set speed only when a safe distance between the vehicles is reattained. This is another harbinger of safer autonomous driving. The MSRPs for both, as equipped: Tacoma, $48,454; Tundra, $47,864. Both of these fine vehicles will see changes for 2020, Toyota revealed at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show in February. Tundra, for example, will offer Smart Key with Push-Button start, multimedia with larger touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Tacoma will add similar multimedia features as well as safety items such as a Standard Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) and Multi Terrain Monitor (MTM). For more information, see www.toyota.com.
