Preston & Rosie's Z Car Home Page

Hi -- My name is Preston Pratt and I am a Z car enthusiast who desires to share my Z passions and interests with others. Many automobile experts consider the 240Z to be one of the 10 most important cars in changing automobile history. For me it embodies the lines and appeal of a Ferrari, Jaguar, Corvette and Mustang. For the price, it has always been the best value of performance and handling. The Z Car platform has been used for replicas of Ferrari, Aston Martin, Cobra, GT40 and several other historic automobiles. It also makes a nice convertible. After building and owning various replicas, I always come back to owning an original 240Z, whose lines are timeless and worth admiring.

I live in Youngtown, Arizona just outside the Phoenix area. I am well known throughout Arizona for my involvement with Z cars and am presently an officer in the Arizona Z club.

Here are some of our noteworthy efforts:

This McBurnie 250 GTO Ferrari Z conversion was a dream to drive

This 1972 240Z is just, beautiful!

And this 1971 240Z is almost as beautiful!
