Dangerous? Hmmm, I like it, gives me that magic feeling....
It can be caused by the taillight gaskets or the hatch seal. It happens to just about all Zcar's, get new hatch/taillight gaskets and replace them. It's the way airflows around the Z that does this, sometime I might get a rear spoiler to see if it helps any.

Are you talking exhaust or gas fumes? Others have exhausted the former; as to the later, have you ever replaced the gas tank hoses or filler neck? They rot with age and let gas fumes into the interior. A fuel leak just about anywhere on the car will permeate into the interior. I run 3xWebbers and when a float sticks, phew!
Good luck!
