"Nissan Z: 50 Years of Exhilarating Performance" by Peter Evanow

$ 46.95
Peter Brock's Autograph?:

Book review by Peter Brock, team owner and manager of Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) which won the Zs first two National Championships in 50 years ago in 1970 and 1971.

"Pete Evanow’s book Nissan Z: 50 Years of exhilarating Performance, chronicles Nissan‘s Z history from the point of its first sketches within Nissan to its latest limited edition 50thAnniversary 370Z, which I’m proud to say was an homage to those original Champion BRE Datsun 240Zs. The breadth of the book is impressive, covering all the numerous Z-car variants.

I learned a lot of insider Nissan history from this book. If you are a fan of Z cars I know you’ll also find something special in these pages. BRE is pleased to be able to offer this in-depth book on Nissan’s Z cars.   

Only time determines the status of a true classic. Designer Yoshihiko Matsuo’s lines for Nissan’s iconic 240Z, penned back in the late ‘60s, set the standard for a line of GT automobiles from Nissan that has endured for more than fifty years. Understanding the importance of the 240Z and the men who created its legendary history has now been presented in a new book by Pete Evanow available directly from BRE, winner of the first two national championships in the BRE Datsun 240Zs of 1970 and 1971.

The 240Z’s initial sales success literally changed Nissan’s image overnight, and in so doing also raised respect for all Japanese-built cars in America. Total sales of Nissan automobiles went from merely adequate to incredible. A large part of Nissan’s success was its record in SCCA competition. Until then no Japanese manufacturer had ever dared go head-to-head with established champions Porsche and Triumph. I’m very proud of BRE to have headed Nissan’s racing efforts on the west coast that eventually resulted in two consecutive SCCA National Championships against the best from Germany and the United Kingdom."
