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.
