    Default The all polished aluminum car body

    A while ago someone started a thread about an old Japanese guy that was building an all aluminum Z. The thread and links never continued past a door the guy built. This morning I went to a local Cars and Coffee in Hunt Valley, MD and saw a hand made beauty like this. (not this, or these cars)

    The entire body is polished aluminum, no coating, just raw aluminum. It was friggin amazing and I wish I could have a Z like this, that is untill it comes to detail day. The owner of the car I saw today is also one of the owners of the company that builds the bodies (or so he said) a 427 SCJ Cobra replicar. Pictures do not do this thing justice.

    Anyway, has anyone seen the progress on the aluminum 240z?

    Theres an all copper version of that car as well, i saw it in hot rod magazine a few months ago.

    The last time i saw the aluminum 240z come up i was given this link, and there doesnt appear to be any new info on it:
    Early 1974 260z
