If I still had mine, I would. From here that would be about 12-1300 miles each way. That's do-able.

Driving mine from San Diego. One of my best buds has a place in Glendale AZ so I am set. He also has a major large garage that he just buils so I have a place to shine her up too. San Diego will host 2014.

I don't really want to respond to this thread with that Avatar showing. Could be bad Karma. :ermm: That car color hits a little too close to home.

Depends on what you are driving... LOL
Took me three days to get to Phoenix from Vista {San Diego}... When I tried to drive the BRE Baja Z back to Florida. Gave up on the original idea of driving the car home - when I got to Phoenix, then Bob Bondurant helped me raise the coil overs high enough to get the car loaded on a transport.. Flew home from there and the car arrived three days later.

Road Trip anyone? LOL

That's what I'm thinking, Carl. Just gathering some ammo to get my bride to agree to the 1300 mile run. It'll be a butt breaker but should be fun, too.

It was just under 1,000 to Nashville, over a 1,000 to Savannah, more than 1,300 to Florida and it's 991 miles to the Tail of the Dragon (which I drive non-stop on the return leg). Done it in the 240 and with the Z on a trailer. Plan ahead, get the car prepped, bring spare parts, drive in a group and enjoy the ride....

I am surprised at the low chatter on the ZCON 2012 thread. I would think that it would be quite busy now as the event is less than a week away. I am very excited about going, and looking forward to meeting all the Z-folks and participating in most of the events. This will be my first ZCON. I am still trying to work out trailering my car to Phoenix. I have the tow vehicle but the trailer I am borrowing is a bit iffy – not sure when it will be available. Hoping to arrive early on 16 Sept, but may not get their till 17 Sept due to trailer. I’ve been spending a quite a bit of time cleaning the car up. I have even been underneath the car with cleaner and a toothbrush trying to get things cleaned up – of course I’m cleaning the car as well. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I will not get there until the 19th and I am driving the G35 Sport Coupe instead of the Z. I want to be comfortable. I think I am going to miss the car show too.

Well, I am still very excited about the ZCON 2012 and my journey has begun. Attached is a pic of my Z on the trailer behind the Jimmy. Also shown is the futile attempt to put saran wrap over the front of the hood, Koito's and windshield. The Saran wrap lasted for about 10 mins then was flapping in the breeze so I took it off. Also had to stop shortly thereafter to more the car forward on the trailer. I was getting some wobbles on the downhills and the moving the car forward cured the problem. Anyway, the Z handled the ride well with no further issues. She is a trailer virgin and really enjoyed the pampered ride from San Diego.

One of the pleasant surprises here was the timeshare set-up. Its a huge 2 bedroom condo with it's own garage. Needless to say, I am thrilled about keeping the car in the garage here, and it is a very good size garage - see attached. Plenty of room to touch-up and detail. I will register tomorrow and try and post some pictures of the cars at the hotel. Looking forward to the show. Cool cactii here

Thanks Guy! I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and talking Z's. I am also looking forward to seeing all of the cars and enjoying the events as well. Should be a great time for everyone. I will try and post pics when I can. Got the laptop here so I can stay connected.

Best regards,
Rich
