Z.Team Yossi X Super Street
Richard Chang (Super
As featured six full color pages in Super Street Magazine, April 2000.
The March 2000 millennium issue of
Super Street was a big hit for the San Francisco Bay Area. The
cover car was the Volk Racing Hokori Turbo Supra and featured within were
the Z.Team Yossi VWs...European cars were rarely featured in Super Street.
Moreover, it was the first time two blood brothers were featured, no less,
pioneers of the Northern California import racing scene, which was about
to explode into the mainstream. 14 months after the issue hit the
newsstands, The Fast and the Furious (Cohen, 2001) was released in
movie theaters. In fact, a number of Z. Team Yossi cars including Shaun's
Jetta were extras in the film production in Los Angeles.
In the following new year, Super Street and Weapon*R (another SF Bay Area company) teamed up to release a 2001 Calendar. Three of the twelve months featured Z. Team Yossi cars: Shaun's Jetta, Wilson's Golf and John B's Turbo MR2. It was nothing short of titilating to see models Linda Lee & Kristin Muranga posing with the Golf. Wilson's Golf was sold in 2001 after graduating UC Santa Cruz and before moving to China. Shaun's Jetta continues to represent Z.Team Yossi as a flagship vehicle for ZTY Media, a graphic design studio specializing in full vehicle race graphics and productions for web and television.
