This past Sunday, I get a text from my brother: willow glen classic car show.
To which i responded: i’m there.
Willow Glen’s Cruise for a Cause car show has been about family, fun, a food drive and, of course, classic cars. And I was hearing it has been for over 50 years. This was truly a wonderful spectacle of classic cars ranging from oddities (like the purple Henry J) to the wild (a Jag E-type…w/ NOS). And believe it or not, it was the first car show the 280z has ever been to!
Despite the Z being a spectator, I gotta mention, it got plenty of looks / comments. No sooner than a minute after parking did a friendly guy named John come over w/ his girl and family. “Hey, you’ve gotta park next to me”, he smiles out. See, John rolled over to the car show in his red 240z. :]
I got there around 1, but for the few hours it took to roll around all the cars, we were the only two w/ Z cars. Actually, it might even be safe to say, the only two vintage Japanese cars from what i saw! Not a bad thing – we certainly stood out among the gorgeous Caddies, awesome Ford Duces and the rest of the American muscle that dominated the show. 280z’s first show, but certainly not it’s last! On to some pics!
Definitely a head turning daily driven, daily datsun!
Additionally it sported Fairlady Z badges and a stacked Monza exhaust.
Amazing rims on this Caddie
Check out the underside! Notice where the rotors are?
Gorgeous Chevy truck interior – simply gorgeous
My favorite car of the show – all business
Check out that jeweled suicide knob! At least you can loose your thumb in style.
This Barracuda was jet black and easily one of the best cars there.
You could squeeze the flyer under here, that’s about it.
I like interior shots, especially this Corvette’s.
