A Z-car owner recently confided in us: Who is Mr. K? Mr. K, we explained, is the father of the Z-Car.

Yutaka Katayama, the first president of Nissan Motor Corporation U.S.A., passed away in 2015 at the age of 105. A recap of his career, plus a three-part interview, can be found here. It's in Japanese, but English subtitles are available. Good way to spend an afternoon.
