Primadonna

I remember when I first learned about these cars, back in the early 90’s. I had acquired my first Z car, a ’79 ZX (which I still have!) and like most cars I have owned, I instantly became passionate about it. Learning the lineage of a car is part of the joy for me. I immersed myself in all things Z, and would spend countless hours at the library at college going through microfiche scans of old Road and Track, Car and Driver, etc

Anyway, I remember Mike, my Z mentor, telling me about the Primadonna Z cars, and sharing some info he knew. Now that I am older, and can really appreciate what goes into building the car of your dreams, I have even more respect for what these cars brought to the table. They were the vision of Jack Atkinson, a car nut who did all the work himself, outside his apartment, in the late 70’s and early 80’s.

This has been blogged about before, and you can read more about it here

What it makes me think of, is what cars will we remember 15 or 20 years from now? With the explosion of the online communities, we now learn about cars from all corners of the globe. I wonder what cars we’ll talk about over beers in 2020.

Office Tomitaku S30Z

Office Tomaitaku’s 1974 S30 powered by the a OS Giken TC24-B1engine.

A little history on the TC24 head:

In 1975, OS Giken made it’s memorable entry into the racing world with the its unparalleled Four Valve DOHC TC16-MAII/TC24-B1 engine and firmly established itself as one Japan’s most innovative race engineering companies.

There were only about 20 or so (maybe even less) of these heads made and they retailed for about $15,000 US 15 years ago. NUTS!
