I love my Fairlady Badge, I got it b/c of the history behind it, and it does catch the eye. I have people ask me what a fairlady was, and since I only have Z's and no nissan on her anywhere, I just say "it's a Z" and leave them hanging.....LOL if they don't know, they don't need to know... :biggrin:
I like to have people ask me if it's a "special edition". I also think that it looks different from what other people have around here. I love the stares and the second glances from people who don't know what they are looking at. I also want the guy in the Rustang GT next to me to have to explain to all of his friends that he got beat by a car named "Fairlady". Also, to make my reason more lengthy, cars are supposed to be female names IMO.
You are absolutely correct DiRN....for those of you who haven't read the link that Dave so kindly posted, here is a short excerpt...
"The name "Fairlady" was given to the new sports car line by Mr. Katsuji Kawamata, President Of Nissan Motors Japan, after he attended the Broadway Musical "My Fair Lady" while visiting the US in 1958. He felt that the name would invoke an image of beauty for the car - because people would think of the beauty of the music and the leading lady in that Broadway Musical. "
yeah I got it because of the story behind it... come on.. who doesn't like telling stories?!? :clap: Also a lot of people think my car is a "special edition car" from japan because of the badge. Its fun seeing different reactions
