Found this snap shot of myself when I was in college (circa 1980) standing next to my very first 240Z #HLS30-59523. The car was repainted black from its original 115 Blue Metallic by the previous owner, the body shop manager of a Datsun Dealership. Had the car for about 3 years before I sold it. Not sure of the car's whereabouts today.

Former Lowry AFB?  What is it now? I have very fond memories of Denver,  from my time at Lowrey -circa 1969.

Lowry was a victim of a BRAC and closed in 1994.  The property was given back to city and it became a mixed use area of housing, light industrial, shopping and dining.

The old hanger area became a beer garden!

I was stationed at Lowry AFB 1968, studied weapons systems on F100, F105,, F111, and F4 c,d & e aircraft . 

Studied SAC Logistics - SAC was updating and automating their entire supply chain. We all loved Denver. Returned there for the 1996 ZCCA Convention hosted by the Z Car Club of Colorado - great group of Z enthusiasts.  Didn't realize the base was shut down.. real shame, Denver is a beautiful place.

A trip down Memory Lane.  I attended an aircraft safety school course at Lowry about 1976.  Spent a little time around B52s as an aircraft maintenance officer at March AFB in California and K.I. Sawyer in the UP of Michigan.  

Hard to believe the B52 has been around since 1955 and the planes are now older than the people flying in them.  Thanks for the time trip!

Question, taxing your memory... When you went to ZCCA convention in CO was there a guy named Larry Hutfulls (probably misspelled) in the CO club? There used to be vintage cars races on the streets of Steamboat Springs and a concourse show over Labor Day weekend that my wife and I would go to from 91 through 2000 (last year they were held in Steamboat). In 91 or 92 there was a very nice 240Z in the show and I talked to the guy and he mentioned the Z car club in Denver and I thought that's what he said his name was. The car was like a dark purple, very nicely done.
