    I posted in Silver - I'm a major Z nut, owned a few of them (one of my first cars was a 280Z - not ZX, the original body Z). Was a big Mr. K fan back then - I had a crew of friends, we all had Zs, we modded them and knew how to get big power by mixing / matching parts.

    He didn't have the recognition of a DeLorean or Iacocca, but no less influential. My journey as a gear head started with the determination (and to an extent - the creation) of one "Mr. K".

    RIP - you will be missed :(
