So if we keep bring it up over and over again and talking about it incessantly... What do they call that?   LOL

Why, of course if they were classy enough, they would call it .......wait for it......flogging the deceased equine.

@lonetreesteve  @kats@HS30-H@Mike B@26th-Zwhere was the car show in the first photo?  Looks like Europe?

LHD, no tail markers, fender mirrors, no antenna?  Spoiler seems nice with the badges.

@240260289 You are correct, it was in Europe. The picture was taken at the Autorama in Portugal almost 50 years ago.

I would buy this one,  I imagine the speed bump on the hood is really needed to fit an L24 in there.

I like the shape of the door and the side glass, I like the way the rear behind the wheel rises quicker than the stock Z. The A pillars are non existent and wouldn't work. It would look really sharp with a good air dam up front.

Looks like you didn't Hoover up a whole one. Try this one:

Not a Z, but maybe one of the boats they came over on. First one is the MS Bluebird and second one is the MS Asahigawa Maru. Photographs by Walter E. Frost, These are in the Port of Vancouver May of 1969

フーバー   :beer:Hoover

Salient point being that they were not simply Hoovered up from another classiczcars.com thread and presented as though they are "new news". Where I come from, we call that "shitting on your own doorstep"...

Thanks Alan !! I deleted them .

Kats, you did not need to delete them. That's not the point here.

What I am unhappy about is the re-posting of photos, divorcing them from their original context and the information that went with them.

I strongly believe we should try to keep any information about what is in the photo, where it was taken, who it was taken by, anything..... should be kept with the photo, if possible. At the very least, the person posting/re-posting the photo needs to act like a guardian or curator. They are a vital link. We should try not to break the link if we can avoid it.

Yes, it's exciting and interesting when we see photos that are new to us, or are 'fresh'. We can talk about them and it can be entertaining, but it's a shame if some vital data or the chain back to the original source is lost in that process. 

A very wise man once told me that I should be careful only to post photos about which I could answer questions on, and - if that was not possible - to pose them as a question. I do try to heed that advice. My original "Hoover" comments were specifically with regard to photos being taken from threads here on classiczcars, and then re-posted on new classiczcars threads, but without the information and context that went with them. That seems, to me at least, to make no sense whatsoever. We have spent a lot of time on this forum digging into stories and learning so much, and the photos are a vital part of that. We are in danger of tearing the photos out of a book and throwing away the text.

So, please post those photos again, but tell us something about them. Thank you.
