Kevin Wallaces Silver Shadow Z

In late 2000 I discovered and started showcasing  Kevin Wallace’s one-of-a-kind customized body 240Z in the early days of my ZPARTS.COM website coming online.  Through my customer base I was able to quickly locate the owner of this car that I had only a postage stamp photo of initially.

Owner Kevin and his photographer girlfriend quickly offered to work with me on showcasing the car and set about to taking new, high quality photos of the car per my guidance.  Featured here is just one of many great shots taken on a 2nd shoot at a gravel quarry.  Come back later and I will have more for your viewing pleasure plus a bit of background history and tech spec write up to go with all of them.
