I know many messages have been posted about the new Z, but I just came back from the Chicago Auto Show and one of the things I was attisipating was the new Z. All I can say is... how disappointing! This new car is void of all the attractive shapes and lines that attracts me to the older Zs. I think that other people at the show feel the same way because while other concept and new vehicals were swarmed by on lookers the Nissan Z sat alone with virtually no one even noticing it. When I look at other cars that were there as concepts with a connection to the past; the Ford Thunderbird, and the Chevy Nomad, there is a distinct shape that immedatly envokes visions of the original car. That is missing in the Z.
