Recommended Posts

We took part at the rallye with our group 'slowly sideways'. But never the less it was spectacular. As you can see...

Thanks Chris,

Yes, we did have fun indeed. Since I discovered ‘Slowly’ I enjoy the car more than ever………..and I hope the people also...

This rally was part of the WRC (world rally championship) and our group was there to entertain the crowed in between. We aren’t allowed to do timing but we go sideways and make a lot off noise, like in the old days. :love:it.

And next spring to Monte Carlo?

The Monte? The historic or the WRC? If anybody needs me with my service car at the historic’s, we can discuss. WRC is out of the question.

I had a chance to drive the Spanish WRC coming October but my work doesn’t let me…:cry:

Very fast……:ermm: there was a Norwegian who was faster. But I understand, it's a fellow countryman :tapemouth

I think you have to check my 2007 data………..

I didn't say they were fastest 240Z because I knew that those Norwegians

were faster but to know that this was Pietilä/Heikkilä´s first Monte Carlo

Rally so the result was good. About my countrymen - there was Rauno Aaltonen who in 70's drove 240Z in Monte (co-driver Jean Todt) and in Safari very succesfully.

Yes, number 5 in Monte Carlo in 1972. They were third that year.

Your 240Z has exactly the same look as Rauno´s, hasn't it?

How about inside?

You have your names in the fenders in Japanese, too!

Their names yes, I asked the Japanese embassy for a translation and they did. I checked it often with asking Japanese people if they could read it..

The inside is almost the same as the works cars. But I don’t have original seats; they are expensive and hard to get so I replaced them for good look a likes.

Thanks Ad, I'm working on it. Have to, goes along with the act... Here's another one on the famous Panzerplatte. An old tank driver course.
