The classic puzzle game featuring the beautiful Lacey posing with a Nissan 370Z. Images are by Stephan Pisko of Metaphysical Photographic Life.

With seven puzzles and five levels of difficulty, the hard ones are very hard indeed. Included are tools to help when you get stuck.

The 370Z is the latest in a long line of Nissan Z cars starting with the 240Z (S30) in 1969, followed by the 260Z in 1974 and the 280Z in 1979. An all new car then followed (S130), and was named the 280ZX, after this was the 300ZX (Z31), and Z32. The 350Z was the last car appearing in 2002 and selling for 6 years.

Along the way there have been some great Z cars, the original 240Z was well received, all cars variants had independent suspension all round with MacPherson struts at the front with disc brakes and rear drums.

The 240Z and 260Z used twin carburetors which were replaced with Bosch Fuel injection for the 280Z in 1975 for the US.

Selling under the Datsun name with a relatively low price compared to other foreign sports cars of the time such as Jaguar, BMW, and Porsche the car became popular in the United States.

The 300ZX Z32 was arguably the best Z car to date. With a 3-liter engine, now with dual overhead camshafts (DOHC), variable valve timing(VVT) and producing a rated 222 hp (166 kW) and 198 lb•ft of torque, the car was quick. However a twin turbo variant was also offered giving the 300ZX supercar performance.

With dual intercoolers the car was good for 300 hp (224 kW) along with 283 lb•ft of torque. Performance of 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h) scared Porsche 944 and 928 owners.

The new 300ZX was a hit, winning Motor Trend's "Import Car of the Year" in 1990 as well as "One of the Top Ten Performance Cars". Automobile Magazine honors the 300ZX/300ZX Turbo as its "Design of the Year" and adds it to their "All Stars" list. Road & Track names the 300ZX Turbo "One of the Ten Best Cars in the World", and Car and Driver adds it to their 10Best for the seven years in which it was in production in America.

In 1990 Z-car sales reached one million cars per year making it the all-time best selling sports car.

A convertible version was also offered and four wheel steering was available under the name Super HICAS (High Capacity Actively Controlled Steering).

The 300ZX was killed by the rising Yen:Dollar ratio which made the car expensive in the USA.

After a long wait the 350Z was released in 2003. This classic front-mid engine rear-wheel-drive two door sports was designed in San Diego, California.

There have been many tuned special editions of the 350Z including the Gran Turismo 4 Limited Edition, the 35th Anniversary Edition and many NISMO editions. Tuners such as Autech, Impul and Nismo have manufactured many tuning parts and conversions for the car.

In motorsport the car competed in the Grand Am Cup and the Super GT class (where it replaced the Nissan Skyline).
The car is also used in many drifting events.
