"Around the same time but a few thousand miles away, a Cuban kid (me) in Miami saw his first Z and as well simply said “what? WOW!'
"Tai-san later was a designer on the ultra-modern, breathtakingly minimalistic 300ZX, the 2nd clay model I saw on my first trip to design studio in Japan 31 years ago (another huge 'WHAT? WOW' moment).
"I later found myself working on 350Z, a team dream to find a new language for Z discovering mechanical beauty and road hugging performance posture. More to come but please share and let us know your memorieZ."
For more coverage on the new Z, see our links below – and let's all hope we won't be waiting until 2023 for its market debut, as was reported recently.
