Turning 350z Heads

Hahaha quick post – just the other night I pulled up at stop light to make a left, and the 350z to my right (going straight) was checking out the car (hand over chin)… light turns green, and he’s still there eyeballin’. Not till another car zooms by does he realize that he’s been distracted by an old school Datsun Z.

Zpotted: Convertible Z

I headed over to St. John’s last week and scored a parking spot next to a convertible 350Z. Never really compared the convertible version to the 280z, so of course I snapped a few shots. With the convertible top, it looks like a  much more compact cabin. Most 350z driver’s i’ve encountered aren’t really into the older Z’s, just from my experience – but just in case i posted the DailyDatsun.com print out in the passenger window :] Cheers from St. John’s!

Zpotted: Yellow 350z.. like me!

Old meets new on highway 101. This time, it’s a great looking 350z.. in yellow. We were in moderate morning traffic, and I was able to ride up along side him, being greeted by a smile and a peace sign. Love it.

Z Owners of Nor Cal Annual Car Show – Brisbane Marina

Z Owners of Northern California (ZONC) are having their Annual Car Show at the Brisbane Marina on July 28th, 2012!

Wow, that first sentence just sums it all up. There’ll be plenty of 240Z, 260Z, 280Z, 350Z and 370Z cars you can shake a stick at, with a special section just for the older cars. Of course plenty of 510’s, Datsun Roadsters, G35 coupes and GT-Rs will also be there in full force. I won’t be entering in 280Z just yet (plus i don’t want to spend 5 hrs there), but I’ll certainly be there to check it out. Should be a blast to see what everyone’s done with their Z cars up close and personal.

For more information go to ZONC’s website: http://zonc.org/
