These are just of the apron in front of the garage. A lot more cars fill the driveway, yard, and street. I fact a couple years ago "Cannonball Jack" May who won the 1975 Cannonball Sea to Shining Sea race showed up with the winning 246 Dino.

Linkee no workee (disregard, it works now)

Note aside, there's a program running that changes text case, regardless of how it was input.

converted and changed the date.

{edit} Admins: perhaps after this party is over the photo should be deleted, since it has phone numbers and directions...

WOW!

The party happened over the weekend and If you weren't there you missed a hell of a get together. A bunch of s-30's, the winning 1975 Sea-to-Shinning Sea Dino Ferrari, John Thomas's car, Carl Beck's BRE Baja car, the 4th place 24hr of Lemons car, and plethera of other race cars and just cool stuff!

150 pounds of chiken wings, god knows how many hot dogs, 2 kegs of beer + ?? how many other cases. A great time was had by all. Here's a couple pictures.

I'm not much of a camera guy, but here's a couple pictures. For all of you that took some pictures post your link.

Here's a few more pics from the party at Bill's this Saturday in Gainesville FL (10/24/2009).

Thanks to Bill for setting it up.

Even though the day started out drizzly and stayed overcast, it was a great turnout of gorgeous Z Cars and a few other rightfully great vehicles.

I plan to put comments on the photos, so if you have any details on the cars in the pics, send them via the comments, or by PM to me and I will post it.

Enjoy the pics. See you next year.

Hi Bill:

Thanks again for Hosting a very special gathering. It was a perfect day for the event, and the food, ah the food... I'm still stuffed. Special thanks to your son Bill, who worked around the clock as well.

I got to meet a few more of our "Internet" friends, and see some very nice Classic, Collectible and Special Interest Cars in addition to the Z's. Of course there is never enough time to spend with everyone. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to the owner of one of my favorite cars - the Caddy XLR that was there - it was striking.

Of course your 71 is still one of the most beautifully done competition cars to be seen anywhere. I wonder how many people noticed that HLS30 00016 still has its original 1969 dated spark plug wires. We could spend an hour looking at the incredible detail work that went into the Z Wolf and the Blue Oval Z. I got a few pointers from John Thomas... he pointed me home and said to stay there ;-) Good to see Ol' Miss won.

There was a Peal White Feb. 71 production car there that had both the side and rear deck lid fresh air vents - and I recall seeing a couple of them come into the Dealership that way. I had just started to talk to the owner when my attention was diverted to a CR-X... ah just not enough time. I saw Will {hls30.com} there, but before I could get over to see him, he was lost in the crowd again.

The Fuel Injection system on Derek's Z was amazing... neat to see it go from casting prototype one year - to a running engine the next. Beautiful job...

It's worth the trip just to see your Z Garage...

thanks again for having us all.... it's these types of "enthusiasts gatherings" that keep us all interested in and enjoying the hobby.

kind regards,

Carl

Wow, what a great event Bill!!! I wish I could have been there. It's an amazing collection of Z machinery. The other cars are pretty nice too. Looks like a lot of fun.

thanks for sharing the pictures with us.

That's quite a collection of cars, and they look like they're mostly leaning towards the modified for racing end of the spectrum. That is not the usual car show crowd and very impressive.

I hope to meet a bunch of you guys at the Mitty in 2010. It would be fantastic to see so many well turned out racecars at RA in April.

I'd like to second Carl's comments. This event is just too awesome to miss. I had a great time, seeing all the Z's and meeting the owners. Can't wait till the next one.

I wish I could have stayed a little longer but I wanted to be able to ride back with a group and my son was getting tired. He ended up sleeping the whole way home.

Did anyone happen to capture any pictures from behind the Garage? Where the food was being prepared and served?

If so I would like to have a copy...

thanks,

Anybody else with pictures??

I emailed Rich Lewis about uploading his pics but I don't think it happened. Maybe a little prodding by you would help.
