MONTEREY, Calif. (July 19, 2014) - For race car driver Steve Millen, anniversary gifts don't get any sweeter than this. To mark the 20th anniversary of his Ð and Nissan's - win at the 1994 24 Hours of Le Mans, Millen brought his legendary No. 75 Nissan 300ZX twin turbo racer out of retirement at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in California.

Why Frank Honsowetz Is The Man

Born and raised in Culver City, Honsowetz got much of his interest and experience in cars through his dad but also growing up in car-rich Southern California. As soon as he turned 16 he bought an El Camino and later a Nova, both with small-blocks, both modified for drag racing.

A die-hard car guy from the beginning his dream was to work at the GM Research Center in Burbank, then through a strange one-month period he suddenly and coincidentally began meeting Datsun owners and admired the 510’s independent rear end, and the overhead cam engines. He quickly changed his mind and told his counselor at LA Trade Tech that he wanted to go work for Datsun rather than GM.
