    Thanks for the video links. Very well done videos. I wasn't at the convention and have to say that I was skeptical when I first saw the photographs. Even called up a friend at the convention to ask what the hell. The car resembles the original Matsuo sketches I have, but not the same. "Making the Z Sport Wagon" really answers my questions and I can see how much influence - genuine influence - the design has from Matsuo san. My hat is off to the project team for taking on a very unique project...and pulling it off!
    Enjoy the Ride

    I saw this car in person at the show, and although it was not identical to some original designs, I personally thought the final product presented was an improvement, stylistically. The curved 3/4 window maintained the "Z"ness of the overall shape quite well, IMHO.

    Congratulations on achieving the goal.

    What a cool project! The interior looks great with the wood trim, etc. Were the seats custom upholstered?

    Jay, Thank you so much for unveiling your fine car at ZCON 2014 in beautiful San Diego CA; you are what made this ZCON most likely the best ever. Seeing the crowd gather around the car a week ago was a crowning moment. Matsuo-san's dream came to be reality thanks to you, how special was it having him there to see see it unvieled....it was a magical time. Look forward to seeing you up at JCCS; Rich and I will be driving up in twin SPL 311s, mine a 67 and his a 70. Thank you again.
