    Dang it. Someone wiped out at track day.

     

    I thought it was Greg IRA from a distance. The driver is okay.

    Here is a panoramic photo I shot of the cars lined up on the front stretch. Unfortunately some of the cars up front got cut off.

    Before that, I was in the garage area talking on the phone with a friend. Then Chris Karl, head of the ZCCA, asked me if I wanted to ride along with him on the parade laps. I told my friend that I had to go, grabbed my camera bag, and hopped into the passenger seat. (Well, as much as my old bones would let me hop into the passenger seat of a 370Z.) I didn't have a chance to get one of my action cameras with gimbal, so I got my old handycam out of my computer bag and did my best to hold it steady while Chris was putting on a show for the ZCON videographers.

     

    Before that, the cars were lining up double file to go onto the track for parade laps. Again, no time for the steady camera equipment (sorry!), but I thought the video looked neat.

    Is Mad Mike there?

    He arrived on Monday and left on Wednesday. I had a chance to chat with him at the reveal of the Z Proto on Tuesday.

    I got my video of the People's Choice Car Show uploaded. If you can, watch it in 4K.

    Saw this on youtube today.  There was a lot more people there than I expected.  

    While attendance was down due to Covid, a lot of the hard core people were in attendance.

    For you people out west and in the plains, ZCON 2021 will be August 16-21 in Colorado Springs.

    I might as well say it - I see a lot of potential virus transmitters wandering around.  The sickness and death are turning in to background noise now, but for those still thinking about those things, it's worth noting.

    How were the happy hours?  Indoors and boozy?  Lots of laughter?

    It's our new world.  Do the risk assessment.  Those college kids will be spreading it for the holidays.

    I had concerns of this when I was thinking of going . I guess if I had made it I would have been one of the few in the pics that had a mask on . I guess it wasn’t cool ? I figured with older cars you would have older people , so more masks ?

    Too dangerous for me... but we can't cross the border anyway so I doubt many from Canada were there. 😞

    That's right. It's got the 2.0L engine, too.

    I confess I dont know the visual difference between a 350z and a 370 et al. but I am a little surprised how few S30 cars appear to be there.  From the videos, it looked like there were far more later cars and very few S30.

    There were many 350Z NISMOs at the show. They arrived after my video.

    Also, there were plenty of S30s. It looked like there were more of them at the Judged Car Show than any other generation. The S130s were probably under represented.
