Well, my memory is vague on this but I don't recall it being a ZX, but then my memory might be failing.  :-)

Good questions and I am sorry I can't give better clues. What I listed are about all the details I remember. I know it wasn't newer than 78 but I don't recall more than that about the year/model. I don't even recall the engine. What amazed me was the immensity or scope of his redesign of the car. It was so far beyond anything I could do that I always was intrigued by his build. He wasn't a 'pie-in-the-sky' dreamer but rather very serious and meticulous. I know I wondered if he would ever get it on the road, given how much he was changing. 

 

Thanks again.

Thanks for the several quick responses!

 

I know of the amazing posts by Mull and followed his build when he was posting frequently but he is not the person. 

 

I looked at previous posts by Boben and am very impressed by his build but I don't think he is the person. 

 

I think the person I am looking for was in Finland but I am not 100% sure. I remember his garage was situated below his house and I saw several posts where he had to winch the car up an incline to get some good outdoor photos. He was changing the entire profile of the car and recall that he chopped the top.
