Something New for Me

    Recommended Posts

    Trying something new on Sunday. I am taking my Zed to the car show and instead of parking it outside when me and my son walk around the cars, we are going to show it. First time in all the years I have been playing with cars this is the first time I have ever showed a car. Hope its fun!

    Will do, its not a Z show, I figure I will have the only one around, but it is a fun show with about 150 cars celebrating the Worlds Lagest Catsup Bottle in Collinsville, Illinois. Should be fun.

    You're about the steal the show. May not be fair to the other entries! ;)

    On second thought, go for it! You will have fun, guaranteed!

    Your Z is sure to get its fair share of admirers! Have fun! OK, we gotta see a pic of the "worlds largest catsup bottle" too.:D What company sponsors that? It must be Hunts or Alymers because Heinz I think uses the word Ketchup.

    I just got back from my 4th "solo" event. You have to love the part where people walk up and start talking to each other with the inevitable question: "What's that?"

    (Even funner now that it has "240Z" written across the top of the windshield.)

    Sounds like fun.

    We had a cruise here about a month ago. I wished I would have entered my 240Z.....it would have been a nice relief from the multitudes of Camaros, Mustangs, and Corvettes (yawn...).

    HaHa! Thanks Mike, "Brooks" is unheard of in these parts. I really wanted to see a pic of a yellow Z under that bottle. Why am I getting a hankering for a hotdog?LOL

    What's funny is that if you read the history on that site you'll see that "Brooks" ketchup is actually made in Canada. By the way, I'll be in Toronto in a few weeks with my family on vacation. I've got a business trip to London in September but couldn't justify airfare for the family. Toronto seems like a nice compromise. You guys even have the queen on your money.

    It was a HUGE show for these parts. I got there at 10:00 AM when it started and was the 106th car! Picks will be coming there were some great cars, a 1958 Porche 1600 Speedster single owner, a great 912, a 1974 Karman Ghia restored to perfection and one 240Z! I have walked a lot of shows but never been in one before, not something I want to do every weekend, but it is a great way to get a close parking spot to check out the other cars.

    I've participated in and helped run quite a few shows. The serious contenders usually arrive 2 hours or more before the official start time. Showing their cars is a big part of their lives and they get there, in some cases, at day-break. It's a lot of fun and a lot of work. Glad you enjoyed the day!
