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 got it because "fairlady z" is the actual name. i like it. sometimes i see people in the car behind me mouthing "fairlady z" and have a puzzled look on their face. kind of funny.

once i got a parking ticket in the hospital parking lot because i forgot to hang my pass on my mirror. my ticket said "silver fairlady z" funny stuff.

I was stopping at the red light with my Window down. There is a couple of guys waiting for a Tram. He walk near the window from range and he said something with intention for me to Hear it.

"Aren't Fairlady Z was firstly made for the Women?"

Just i just ignore and accelerate away on Green light.

So i just wanted to see what you guys think :)

Keep voting please :) it's great to see some people's opinion ;)


Thanks for Voting.

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.

the Japanese in charge of that area at the time liked the movie 'My Fair Lady'.

I thought he (Mr K) went to see it on Broadway :dunno:

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. "

Shave the doors, take off the badges, fill the holes....I like body lines better than 'advertising'.

I wouldn't add or change a badge....Unless you're a 'Fair Lady' like Jinxxy.

Or a 'Z'-Nut.....like.....
