Meet you flattoppers in Atlanta-----might be the largest gathering of us ever at a ZCON!

C.O and Gary---sure hope that your fuel issue is resolved and is not complicated by the loan to me  C.O. made of the fuel nozzle gauge and removal tool. I will return them in person with many thanks and hopes that they are not too late!

The fuel issues with Gary's car are getting the fuel TO the anchors. The carbs themselves are working great. It's the supply that's questionable. We were out this afternoon for about an hour and it's running excellent even with the intermittent low fuel pressure. I think at this point we're just going to go for it with a couple contingency plans in place in the unlikely event that it gets worse. Murphy and all that.

Looking forward to the group meeting of the Flat Top Advanced Research and Development Society.

And I'm thrilled that you've worked out the bugs from your system. I'm a little put aside that you didn't reach out for assistance. It wouldn't have taken me two years.    ROFL

I wouldn't shake his hand, you don't know where its been.  Drink his beer though!

Buwhaaahaa.... Nice.

 

Not to worry,....I'm bringing (now say it in the Hank Hill voice) "evaporators and evaporator accessories" so we can discuss HVAC upgrade options...

First time trip to Atlanta - since this is Coca-Cola's HQ, do I need to smuggle my Pepsi in?? LOL

Yes, you do. Mountain Dew & Diet Dew are the only socially acceptable P-word company drinks. Otherwise enjoy the fine products of the Coca Cola family. LOL

True story - I used to travel up to Canada on business, but Diet Dew was not available in the Toronto area at the time. I would fly into Buffalo, rent my car, fill up on Diet Dew at the grocery store, and go across the border. If I ran low, sometimes co-workers smuggled more across the border.

Civilization was slow getting to that land up North.

I don't think it matters too much as long as you brown bag it and  besides,  we'll still call it a coke anyway no matter what it is.  But just to be safe, the local police have been alerted as to your intentions.  😁

Haha!!! I didn't know Atlanta was Coke's main hive. Kinda like parking your Nissan in GM's lot, huh?

Looking forward to seeing the HVAC stuff Wayne. Should I bring anything from my end to help out? Give me a call if there's something I need to bring along.

I'm driving down on 15 Oct.

Does that mean you have your Z rigged up to drive under water? B)

Funny guy. I found out Monday that I have a bad camshaft in my Z with less than 500 miles on the engine. I'm not certain what to do about this trip now.

I wish I had better news. Several things have conspired to prevent me from coming this year, not the least of which is the distinct lack of a Z to drive at the moment. 

Was looking forward to meeting some of you finally, but this will have to wait at least another year. Here's hoping next years extravaganza is a bit farther west. 

Enjoy your time,  I will live it vicariously through your pictures and stories here. All the best.

Well that's too bad about the two of you!  @bpilati Brian, what are you gonna do? I'm not officially registered yet as I'm going as a guest, but if there are no provisions for a refund from the committee, I could maybe use your registration and send you some $$ to help recoup the losses?

@siteunseen What's the latest with you? Bucket list houseboat trip, or Zcon Atlanta?

@240260280 What's the latest with you too? New job still shackling you home, or is there a chance you and your co-pilot could make it?

Yup. We wish we could be there.  My new job is great but I lost my time off window which I booked with old company.

You guys who aren't coming will definitely be missed. 

Branson is the 2019 location, and I believe it will be in Nashville for the 2020 edition. I will definitely be at Nashville. I just hope that they take a cue from us and schedule during cooler weather.

It's no coincidence that the celebration of the 50th anniversary will be at HQ Nissan NA. Nissan supports the Z car. I'm not sure the North American market supports the Z car...Heck, aside from the pony cars, I'm not  what the North American market supports in the way of sporty coupes.

@bpilati

 

You guys will be missed for sure---really couldn't wait to meet Jim Karst for the first time and to reunite with Brian Pilati, Philip and Janet.

Heading out with our small entourage tomorrow morning.

Will try to help fill you in with a few posts, post ZCON Atlanta

I haven't decided 100% that I'm not coming, even if driving my other car. I'll decide this evening, and let you know. May have to work this through Zcon officials.

Wouldn't be the first time CO used a fake ID 😉  Hopefully my car makes the trip!  I have 280 miles on it now... CO and I will give it a good once over on Sunday, hope to see you all at the judged show on Wed.

The problem is that the ZCON organizers have a spy somewhere around here...
