Thought this was pretty cool!  I was cleaning out our little rest bunky at my flying club and came across a box full of old EAA magazines... and I mean OLD.  Going through the box I found this one which was from July 1975 and found this GREAT article on page 59 about the "Mono Zenith"!  

Looks like the Grand-Daddy of the Zen designs but still has lots of familiar looking parts!  Took some high res scans of the article, figure lots of guys would be interested in reading this.  Beware, the pics are about 10 megs each so might take a bit to open below, be patient!   :)
