Another write up on the Zeds. Seem to see more of these all the time. The S30 is really becoming quite desirable and valuable.

Thats cool.
Interesting that some journalists see it as an E Type knockoff.
To me it was not all that like an E Type.
You can see lots of influences in there-C2 Corvette,Porsche 911, etc, but I reckon its most like a scaled down Ferrari 275 GTB

I agree I think it looks more like the Ferrari. I guess that is why you could buy kits to make into GTO look alike. I don't think it looks like an E type at all. I does have a mix of cars, headlights are definitely E type. Cut of rear-end definitely Ferrari.
