Thanks Colin!

So it's officially called the "Z"!! To be released for sale in Spring 2022

I personally think it looks great. No goofy body sculpturing, fake scoops or vents. Very clean retro look.

And the fact that they are offering a 6 speed gearbox in this day an age tells me that they are still focused on making this a true drivers car. Wonderful!

I can't wait to see/read some road test results.

Not I.

I've known Frank since we were kids. We went to different schools together. His uncle died in our wine cellar with his head under the spigot. Frank once thought he might marry my first cousin until they discovered they were related thru different mothers and their fathers were brothers, so they decided just to live together instead. They moved into an abandoned house upstairs over a vacant lot. He was arrested because the mailman couldn't deliver his draft notice so he never knew his number was up. Frank served 10yrs for draft evasion but made his fortune in politics ~ he sold his former address to the mail-in election committee in 2020 and got $100 for every election ballot received from his old house.

THAT Frank McGinley?

Graham and I were at the garage at Pike's Peak International Speedway when they rolled it out. I was not a huge fan of the yellow Z proto. But the blue production version has caught my eye!

By the way, our NJ friends Greg Giachi and Diego Perri somehow finagled attending the Brooklyn reveal prior to ZCON.

That's just Purdy. It came out a lot better than I feared it might. I still am not nuts about the grille, but a drop-nose body kit will probably change that soon.

It promises to be a spectacular car Karl, but there's only ONE Z for me. 8)
