Author with Mr. Yutaka Katayama (Mr. K), father of the Z car
Welcome to my homepage. My name is Alan Poindexter, and I am a certified “Z” nut, who has a real passion for the largest selling sports car in history. I have owned 23 “Z” cars in my lifetime including three I still own today. I love restoring these old cars back to their original beauty and upgrading their performance. I have collected many parts for the 240Z, 280Z, 280ZX, and 1st Generation 300ZX (Z31) over the years and will be selling many of them within this site.
I started this car craze back in the 70’s when I saw my first 240Z, with burnt orange paint, lowered with Minilite wheels and beautiful exhaust note from the inline 6 motor. It didn’t take long before I was hooked on a lifelong connection with this car. I started autocrossing my first “Z” in the early 80’s and that bloomed into track events and eventual vintage/historic racing by the late 80’s and 90’s. My dream was to build a replica of the famous Bob Sharp IMSAGTU racer that Bob and Sam Posey made famous. After 13 years of blood, sweat, and tears my dream was realized. You will see a history of the build on this site. This car is also for sale within this site.
I have followed the history of “Z” racing with Bob and Scott Sharp, Paul Newman, Don Devendorf, John Morton, Steve Millen, Johnny O’Connell, and my racing idol, Jim (Fitzy) Fitzgerald, who lived 10 miles from where I grew up. You will find many rare old photos I’ve taken of these drivers and cars within this website. Some of these one of a kind photos will be offered for sale within this site.
I have collected all forms of Nissan memorabilia over the years and my basement is a shrine to the “Z” heritage. I’ve collected posters, hats, pins, patches, die cast models, as well as many other rare forms of memorabilia. My personal favorite is the hood off of Fitzy’s SCCA GT2 280ZX. I have a lot of these items now up for sale within this site.
This website is dedicated to Mr. Yutaka Katayama (father of the Z car), Jim Fitzgerald, and the many people I’ve met over the years that share the same love for this icon in motor racing history and I hope you “Enjoy The Ride”.
