Hey there, welcome to our page for Restored: The Scarab Z Story, a short documentary about the Scarab Z car. We’re so glad you’re here. Whether you love cars, love someone else who loves cars, or you’re simply a lover of good stories, you’ve come to the right place. Let us tell you a little bit our project and how you can partner with us to tell a story that has never been told before. 

In 1975, two men had a vision to create a luxury sports car that was not only beautiful but also practical for everyday use. This level of comfort or modification in a sports car hadn’t existed before, and what came of that was the Scarab Z.

Although the dream was big, the resources didn’t last as long as they’d hoped, so after production of a handful of these unique cars, they had to throw in the towel. They lost touch over the years, and that was that. Or so they thought...

Never did they imagine that over 40 years later, they would discover that their vision had created an underground community of loyal car lovers that have continued to keep their incredible idea alive with the restoration and preservation of these cars.

For the first time ever, these two men will be reunited with the cars they created and the community surrounding them to celebrate the incredible legacy that is the Scarab Z.

So, you might be asking, what are we doing? Well, we're documenting the story of the restoration of two old friends, the preservation of legendary cars, and the story that is finally being brought to life. This story deserves to be told with great care, skill, and commitment to detail. This documentary will include interviews of both Brian Morrow & Keith Bergey, as well as various members of the Scarab community including Randy Lewis, Scott McElroy, and Mike Runnels to bring this legend to life. In addition, you will get an inside look into ZCon 2019 and the indescribable moments of car lovers coming together. And of course, lots & lots of exclusive footage of the Scarab Z.

We know we can’t make this story come to life without the investment of people like you. Thank you in advance for your support of this one-of-a-kind story of a one-of-a-kind car!

Risks and challenges

We are aware that this story has been mostly conjecture for many years. That being said, there is a need to sift through a lot of information and make sure we get all of the details right. We know this will be challenging and take time and attention, however, we are confident that by working closely with both of the founders and the community of Scarab owners, we will accomplish this task.
