Fast and Furious Star Sung Kang Gets a Restomod Nissan 240Z, Inspired by Paul Walker

Paul Walker was one of the greatest car enthusiasts in Hollywood. As opposed to the King of Cool, for instance, he loved what the aftermarket could offer, which is why the shop the actor and Roger Rodas owned was full of such contraptions. Unfortunately, the Fast and Furious star never got to drive them all as much as he wished.

Actor Sung Kang says he’d spend time talking with Walker about all the great custom cars he owned, always wondering how come he never drove some of them. The regretted actor would reply that he would eventually hit the road with all of them, but as we all know, he never got the chance to do it.

Kang says Walker’s passing away has taught him that life is all about enjoying the moment and that sometimes we’re supposed to follow our dreams no matter what other people say. His longtime wish was to own a Nissan 240Z, and that’s what he did. Kang found a working 1973 model that was still in good shape and went straight for it.

Not only is his dream car being restored to its former glory but it will even be present at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas. Just in case you’ll be there in January, look for a smooth Nissan 240Z dubbed FuguZ, we’re sure you’ll find it in no time. Meanwhile, let us discuss a couple of details.

First of all, there is a five-episode docuseries called “Z Dream” that you can follow on FOX Sports, with the first part being listed below. Then, you’ll want to know that the project is conducted by Irvine, California-based Greddy Performance Products Shop. As far as we can tell, the fine gentlemen at the garage are not just great professionals but also have a soft spot for this particular breed, considering some of them used to drive a 240Z on a daily basis too.

Bottom line, this is not just one of Nissan’s classic two-seater GTs, as it may prove to be a true head turner once it hits the streets. We can’t but tip our hats to Kang and the team and wait patiently for the outcome.
