  1. Hey, sorry we weren't able to get together. There are not too many first generation Zs around here, unfortunately. I did join the local Nebraska Z club thinking there may be some older Z owners in the club, but I only found one 78 or 77 280 Z. Mostly all 300 and 350s. My 73 was the oldest. I've had my car for about 6 months and enjoy watching people crane their necks while drive by. When I'm in parking lots, people walk up to me and start telling me about their uncle, cousin, friend, brother, who had a Z and how much fun they had running around in it. Thanks for responding. I like your Web site. Nice car!

    Go USA!

  2. try driving a FWD and a RWD in the snow. the handling difference is very easy to tell, especially when you're trying to accelerate!

    My new plates

    Very Nice! I've seen a guy in my neighborhood with a VERY similar plate on his 350!
  4. unfortunately I have to miss it this year. I'm not as close as I was last year. Steve - I'm sure that the CCZCC will be well represented! Wish I was there!
  5. hey, where is there more info on this club ? I just moved to NE from CA 6 months ago. I drove my Z around before all the snow hit, but only ever saw 1 other 1st gen... where are they all ???????
  6. Vic, THIS SUCKS !!! I can't imagine getting a car stolen. To be honest, it's one of the reasons I'm glad I don't live in California any more. I'll be thinking good thoughts. Hope you find it soon, and all in one piece. I was just looking through my MSA pics from last year, and as it turns out, I snapped a shot of your car. Best of luck to you!
  7. this photo was taken at 2002 MSA show. It looks almost EXACTLY like the one my dad had. Is the owner a CZCC member ? PM me, please !
  8. just a regular Pioneer CD player...something to listen to the tunes on. it's a detachable face unit I have also put Pioneer 150W speakers behind the factory speaker covers, so on the inside, it all looks stock. I am also one of those who REFUSE to cut holes in the door panels and put speakers in the door. The thing I really like about how my stereo install came out...I still have manual control of the antenna. I have moved the swith since this picture was taken, but it still works the way it should Pioneer Radio
  9. my 78 has the bleeder at the slave as well...
  10. My parents found this in a newspaper just days after we had to put our dog to sleep years ago. DOGS DON’T HAVE SOULS, DO THEY? I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur. You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping. Once in a while you’d let out a little yelp just to let me know this was your territory. Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion, and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those innocent eyes as if to say: “I’m sorry, but I’ll do it again as soon as you’re not watching.” As you got older, you protected me by looking out the window and barking at everyone walking by. When I had a tough day at work, you would be waiting for me with your tail wagging just to say, “Welcome home. I missed you.” I could always count on you to be there. When I sat down to read the paper and watch TV, you would hop on my lap looking for attention. You never asked for anything more than to have me pat your head so you could go to sleep with your head over my leg. As you got older, you moved around more slowly. Then one day, old age finally took its toll and you couldn’t stand on those wobbly legs anymore. I knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up at me as if to say you were old and tired and that after all these years of not asking for anything, you had to ask me to do one last favor. With tears in my eyes, I drove you one last time to the vet. For some strange reason you were able to stand up in the animal hospital. Perhaps it was your sense of pride. As the vet led you away, you stopped for an instant, turned your head and looked at me as if to say: “Thank you for taking care of me.” I thought, “No – thank you for taking care of me.” Author – Charles B.

  11. not entirely a true statement. my 78 is a factory 4 speed. according to the 1978 dealer brochure, the 5 speed and the auto transmissions are referred to as "optional".

    Income poll...

    put us in the 40-60 range, now that Jenna doesn't work anymore. well, the twins definitely keep her busy, but she doesn't get paid to take care of them. anyway, regardless of HOW MUCH we make, I've found that my money now goes ALOT farther since I don't have to make a CA house payment, or pay $2 a gallon for gas !!! Steve, if we could move the CCZCC and all our Zs to Omaha, life would be perfect ! no smog test for those curious (or worried)
  13. that's the same horn pad I have on my '78
  14. sounds like an MSA after market knob...definitely not stock, though
