It fills me with grief to hear that we’ve lost such a brilliant mind. Mr. Katayama obviously was ahead of his time in his ideas, and when he gifted the world with the Z car, I wonder if he anticipated how much of an immense, dedicated following he would accumulate. I wish, like I’m sure most any Z owner does, that I could have thanked him for his amazing work. He has created some pretty Z-crazy people, and I’m proud to consider myself one of them. 

You’ll be sorely missed, Mr. Katayama! Rest in eternal peace.
