History
My father owned several 280ZX’s and Z31’s back in the 80’s and as a kid, I was instantly drawn to the Z-Car family. In the mid-90’s, I purchased my first Z and have been driving them exclusively ever since.

Previous Z’s:

• 1983 Silver 280ZX NA
• 1983 Gunmetal 280ZX NA
• 1986 Black 300ZX Turbo
• 1991 White 300ZX Twin Turbo
• 1993 Black 300ZX NA

I bought my 1990 TTZ in Philly, 2010, bone stock and pampered with only 43k original miles! Since then, I’ve made a few enhancements…
