Family photos

Recommended Posts

My dad and I got all out cars together for a shoot this evening. We lined them up by year. The BMW and Volvo are mine of course and then my dad has the 90, 73, 72, 72, 71 & 70.

Great photos! Your dad has almost a full spectrum. I see the bumper bars have already been removed from the new arrival. :)

Which is his favorite, and why?

I see similarities with several of them - with that many colors I would want a different engine style for each on as well. Let's see - one original L24 with SU's - one L28 with Triple Mikuni's - one with a V8 - one with a stroker - one with a SR20DET..............oh well.........a beautiful line up with any of the above choices. Well done!!

Great pics as always. Btw I had a hell of a time with an 06 v70r. Be very aware of the vacuum system for the brake booster. Mine had less than 15,000 mikes and caused intermittent and brief total brake failure. Volvo finally fixed it, or they felt they had, with a new brake booster, master cylinder and check valve but I was done and I dealt it for a 335i. The awd system will die too but that's not a safety issue. Great car on paper, mine was a stick too. 335i hasn't been exactly problem free either but all seems good now.

I will add to the above list one to be lowered with fat tires , a low stance IMO adds more of a feline sexy look to the Z .......;)

Luckily the AWD rear output seal is leak free :) I feel pretty confident that if the brakes haven't had any problems at 81k, then most likely it was already taken care of with a recall etc. Thanks for the tip though. I will keep that in mind in case I notice any issues.

I've been waiting for a family photo. Simply stunning!

BTW, how long did it take to keep moving the cars forward and backwards to get all of the different angles? Great photography as usual Brandon.

FYI: http://v70r.com/forums/topic/9796-loss-of-brake-assist/

This was exactly, to a T, what was happening with mine...Volvo is aware of it and what will happen is the brake pedal will go rock hard, then will be responsive again once the pedal is released.

Edit; to keep the thread on track, I'm off to pick my Z up this afternoon from the body restoration shop...460 hours on the rotissorie and she's heading back home:

Thanks for the photo. It's easy to forget how colorful cars used to be in the 1970s.

Absolutely beautiful collection! In addition to the cars the house and property that we can see in the pics looks great. What kind of camera and lens did you use for these shots? Thank you so much for posting these up.

Thanks! The photos were taken at my dad's (Diseazd)

The camera is a Canon 40D. I used both the 50mm 1.8 as well as the Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6.

The one's my dad attached were using his 40D and a Canon 18-35mm kit lens IIRC.

What about 74 through 89

don't get lazy on us!

LOL!

That is just stunning dude.. no other words for it.

I agree, don't stop know. In fact, I have an example of the next one in the series of S30's, the very rare early 74 260z. I may be tempted to let it go if the price is right. Just kidding, that is an awesome collection.
