I bought the silver car in 1996 and for many years just kept it running. Eventually, I had the original L28 rebuilt, a roll-cage built-in, and many other race-prep changes.

In 2005, after 2 years racing with bolted on, custom fender flares, I had the car repainted and the fenders molded into the body. It turned out fantastic. Late in 2005 I broke my L28 motor in a race at TWS. I put in an RB26DETT.

With that first car more or less done, in 2008 I began building a new Z (2.0) that is a completely custom tube-framed carbon-fiber track car.
