    Default Video: Jay Leno visits Japan and drives a Fairlady 240Z-G!



    Finally a review on the Z car on Jay Leno's Garage!

    Jay also talks with designers on what to expect from the next Z car, and mentioned that he currently owns a Z car himself.

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    If he adds a Z to his stable,,,,,Yep that will increase the desirability on our cars and a welcome recognition by a 1st rate car collector for the breed

    Extensive collection, but it's never been substantiated (at least to my knowledge) that Jay Leno is in the know. Perceived as more of an interest-in-cars-with-a-big-purse.

    now Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee on the other hand, is geniuns.

    It was the Jay Leno channeling GoertZ that got me..." if it comes out looking anything like this I should be getting a royalty check, right?"
    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!

    We visited the California Automobile Museum in Sacramento last month and I was pleasantly surprised to see a '72 240z on display. It looked right at home with all of the other classic cars on display.

    Must be a recent addition, I visited in April 2011, surely would have noticed that since I was still a Z owner at the time.
