Hey everyone! I'm thrilled that the editors of CLASSIC MOTORSPORTS MAGAZINE heard of my life story with my 240Z and wanted to do a feature article about it! It's in the March 2018 issue on newstands now. Pick up a copy and check it out! :D

Great news, John. I'm on my way to B&N to find a copy right now.
PS: for many of us, your Z has been famous for many years before this. 8) :thumbs_up:

Can't find this issue on the shelf yet. :? Maybe they sent you a personal copy of the March edition ahead of distribution?

Those are 15" Revolution wheels (no longer available) with custom billet aluminum "Z" center caps.

Subscribers get the magazine first, should be hitting newsstands any day now.

Well deserved recognition for all the hard work done. :thumbs_up: Do you get any royalties if all Z family members buy a copy of this issue? Or maybe a tire gauge? :lol: :mrgreen: Congratulations.

It's on the newstands here in western NY, I'm sure it'll hit there any time now.

Thanks for the nice words fellows! Once you read the article, you'll understand how the Z is in my blood. Permanently! :wink:

Got it! :D
I really enjoyed reading the article and can say it brought back some fond memories as someone who has owned a 240Z for 47 years. I restored mine twice as well. Fortunately, I escaped some of the perils that you experienced. I'm glad you stuck with it as you car is a beautiful example of a much loved 240Z.

As a side note, while at B&N I noticed another magazine with an eye catching cover. You and those interested should get a copy of February's "Grassroots Motorsports" magazine. If it wasn't for the missing license plate I thought my car was on the cover! - NOT

I'll let you find out which Z they thought was the best tested. :wink:
