One sweet young thing and a bunch of old farts.

This a self portrait of the "old fart and the sea" - I have the camera precariously balanced on top of a fan, while the ship rolls around mid Atlantic.:sick:

Taken at 2 30 pm today sent to you via satilite.

)... and the second picture is me on the left...

Carl understands with age comes dyslexia!

Yes, how true ...well I guess I was hoping that I'd be mistaken for being Bob Bondurant (he is to my Right in the picture)...but looking at the picture he is on the Left and I am on the right... he's always pumping me for driving tips... LOL ...

later,

Carl

That's cool Carl. It's funny, because I actually HAVE given Bob driving tips. LOL I was the vehicle dynamics engineer on the SVT Lightning and Bob drove it when he was visiting Ford in Dearborn. He drove a few laps on our handling course and I was giving him tips and tricks on how drive a hotrod pickup truck at its limit. We have worked with him several times out in Arizona when we were testing. He's a nice guy. He's pretty scary to drive with these days though. He can't see too well anymore :paranoid:

Hi Jeff:

That's neat - I loved the entire concept of the Lightning...but the last Ford I bought was the 91 Thunderbird SC....still have it and it has 9K miles on it. Put about 100K on my 89 SC however before selling it...

Your right - he's a neat guy.... Lots of interesting stories, but that's for another thread...

regards,

Carl B.

Well, here I am. I wasn't about to post a picture in the previous thread because I wanted a picture with me driving the car. But now that it runs I have no excuse.

The first is a shot with the boys...Ariva and Tractor...one of the other hobbies other than the Z's...

The second is a day we'd all rather forget....

Still need to get a picture of me with the car...

First photo is from a family function that my wife snapped.

The second is me in usual work attire and my reason for being over here in Belgium, cycling. I would get a photo with the Z, but it's at the mechanics getting registered for the road here in Belgium. It 'failed' the inspection test because of a cracked Tie Rod Boot ... of all things ... they get picky here about some things at times.

Here is a pic from two + years ago at the Rolex 24 at Daytona which is sort of fitting given that it's the site for this years ZCCA convention. A sort of two for the price of one as standing next to me is my father--the fellow repsonsible for getting me into this Z car craziness. I'll have to find the pic from 1978 when his 280Z was a brand new car. While my father's original 1978 280Z has long since been written off by the insurance company he still has an identical maroon 1977 Datsun 280Z. BTW, anyone from here plan on attending the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2008?

HEY, .... MIKE (the boss),

For the sake of continuity, and to avoid doubling up, what's the chance of adding this thread to the original ???????????????????????

Mmmm, Hi there Sailor.

Here's another of my favorites, along the same lines.

Lord, give me the ability to accept the things I cannot change, the strength of will to change the things that need changing, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

And,

Sometimes I wake up grumpy. Other times I let her sleep.

Rick.
