Zpotted: BAZ 370z

Recently i’ve been driving the truck since the 280Z’s been having smog issues…

While heading to work, I rolled up next to a nicely done 370z on Great America Parkway. Also, low and behold, it’s a BAZ member’s car! (Bay Area Z) (or at least i think so, judging from the sticker…).

Check out BAZ’s facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bayareazz/

Motor Trend: 370z vs 240z

Yesterday morning rolls around – i get a email from my Dad :]
Motor Trend’s show, Downshift, pits an enthusiast’s engine swapped 240z against the crowd sourced Nissan 370z. The 370z has every sweet piece of technology possible at the pinnacle of automotive technology. The 240z has typical upgrades, Watanabe wheels, no-power steering…oh, and a RB26DETT engine.

Let the fun begin!

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/

For photos of last year’s event, check out Z-Car Garage’s page. Rob’s got a host of photos to gawk at.

Another Z, next to me

It was an uncharacteristically busy night at the Planet Granite climbing gym. So much that I had to park aaaalll the way over at the end of the parking lot – way over there. After climbing though, i returned to my 280z being kept company by it’s newest sibling: a gunmetal grey 370z! What a nice car! Even better it was the 40th anniversary edition AND it had a Z Car Garage license plate frame. Sweeeeeet!

I’ve gotta get back to Z Car Garage someday. Rob and company are great guys – my first venture over (when i didn’t even have the 280z yet), he let me walk the floor and checkout all the cars. He’s got two incredible Datsuns, a Z and 510, both decked in a wild lime green.
