Branson Z Fest 2018 International Edition

Recommended Posts

Looks like it was a great time, and cool that CZCC was well represented.

See the way Zup sits there with flat tops at his feet? Like minions.    LOL

Branson ZFest 2018 is yet another of the most significant moments in my life-----memories I will keep forever.

The unqualified pure "goodness" of the Z community we are all a part of is alive and most evident here. Thousands of dollars were raised in charity for impoverished children---providing food and basic hygiene items for those in need in the surrounding area. Organizers and volunteers of this annual event of 15 years tirelessly and unselfishly devote time and energy to make this one of the best weeks of the year----- such a departure from the daily myopic "me" world in which most of us exist.

To those in attendance I thank you for restoring faith in human kindness toward those less fortunate than us. Poverty and need exists all around---even in the shadows of the shows and promoted attractions that fuse to make Branson glisten.

To anyone contemplating attending next year or in the future ---- may I please encourage you to come---it is like nothing else and your definition of FAMILY will change forever.

On a lighter note, may I dangle the lure of an inside Air Conditioned ZCON held in the heat of July!! When was the last time you did that???

Sure to be fun for all----endless Z conversations for the guys and lots of shops for those disinterested or ambivalent ladies!

So please--- make plans now to join us next July for ZFest/ZCON 2019!!!

This was my first Branson Zfest event! I enjoyed every moment, despite the heat.

I want to especially thank Mike W, Zup, David Johnson for your willingness to provide suggestions to me, being new to the scene.

My 1981 280ZX is in a million pieces right now and I hope to have it ready by next year. Keeping it original stock. The body itself is in excellent condition but I have a lot of cleaning to do to get the engine back to looking like new.

And thanks to Zup for pointing me to classiczcars.com and the plating discussion thread! Awesome.

Welcome Rich!

It was a pleasure to meet you there my friend. It WAS hot, but enthusiasm and camaraderie won the days.

I feel much better now that you have joined in with this CZCC crew---you are in very good hands. Follow the discussions and ask away any questions you may have.

A wealth of cumulative knowledge is at your fingertips if you get stuck. "Search" is your friend, but just ask if you can't find an answer and someone will assist more likely than not.

Thanks, Zup! 

I’m doing a lot of reading here and researching before I ask a question that’s already been addressed.

Learning a lot so far! Thanks! See photo of my engine block on the stand. Leak in cylinder no. 1. In the machine shop now.
