I loved the Datsun Z, and my greatest respects to Katayama-sama. May you drive forever.

Yamaha went to Nissan with their Sport car prototype originally and was rejected and the n Yamaha when to Toyota and build the GT2000, ( it was designed and build by Yamaha) then Nissan went ahead with the Z, not sure if Nissan saw what they had missed out with Yamaha or they had the Z in their pipeline prior to be approached by Yamaha, any way there are two of the greatest cars to come out of Japan!
