FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

Finally have the pics from the Z car meet.


One of the baddest Zs there...all chiney...even had a carbon fiber fuel filter...was a bit much, imo.


Same car as above.


Also a bad ass Z. This dude was from Indiana. He was talkin about how he just went moto-crossing with the Viper club and beat them all. He said they made him an honorary member...<shrug>

Another show Z like the first one. Really nice. Convertable TT conversion. Cool car.


Same as above.


Cool guy drove this car...dude was a dentist or something. Had a few little arming switches in there labled "flux capacitor" and "booster jets" and the like. and I asked him what they were for...his reply..."nothing". Thought that was cool.


Same car as above.


Damn nice 260.


Nice Z31.


Damn nice old school Z.


Engine from car above...so chiney.


Wanted to steal that poster so bad...had it hanging at the Ruby Tuesday's that all the Z people raided...whole Ruby Tuesday's full of Z people was cool. They set up a screen and had an Xbox with some racing game that everyone was playing...I had to leave...didn't get to play.


This car was sick. Had the full Stillen S/C kit and TONS of add ons. Dude owned a Z parts supplier in Canada. Cool guy.


One of my fav pics...thank my girlfriend for these...I wouldn't have thought of it. This is the Motel 6 that sponsored us for the event.


There's my car...waaaaaaaay off in the distance...lol. Guess she didn't think to take a pic of MY car...lol.


Me from the rear...lol. I was blabbin about Zs with someone.


What we came home to...my dog, a 4.5 lb Chihuahua, decided to destroy everything...pissed me off.

Thanks to my girl for doing a good job with the camera and getting the pics developed. Gave the to her and didn't see her again for a half hr...it gave her something to do while I talked cars with everyone so that was nice.

Any ?s, lemme know.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

probes car was there, just not in any of those pics. i was parked in the other lot. there were two lots and i was parked by that slick silver 240.
yeah those 3 main show Z32s were all AMAZING (The red tt, the white tt, and that TT vert).
and everyone there was really cool too, i got some pics too. I actually got a ride in that stillen Z33 (the s/c one) and its pretty damn fast. It was actually dealer-installed so its under warranty lol how sweet is that. he just cant exceed 7 lbs or it will void.
but nice pics LLZ.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

Yea...I had to bail before I got to meet Probe...unfortunately. We'll meet up sometime. I still have your number, man.

I wanted to ride in...like...all the cars there...lol. All the cars and people were really cool.

The dude with the Stillen S/C'd Z owns a company, if I'm not mistaken, called Zeetoys in Canada. He told me he got the Stillen kit because of the warrantee...this was important to him because he mostly just uses the car for promoting his business so mass performance wasn't a priority.

My Chihuahua is a little bastard sometimes...

I'll get you guys some pics of my current stuff as soon as I can. It'd be SO easy if I could find the charger to my digi cam. The battery's dead so it's just laying on the floor laughing at me now..."ha ha ha...you can't use me"...lol. I WILL get some pics soon. I need to get some, if for NO other reason, to update my cardomain site.


1: That dude did NOTHING but clean his Z the WHOLE time I was there. It was SPOTLESS. He even scrubbed the INSIDE part of his rims to try to get the brake dust off. Cool guy. He only had...like...7000 miles on it and it was a few years old. He said he drives a Rav-4 and uses the Z as a toy.

2: That guy was pretty cool, too. He just up and disappeared, though...I talked to him for a little while, then didn't see him again...lol. Probably running around talking to people like I was.


Honestly, this dude had ANYTHING but a show car. It was nice, but not a show car. Those two were (the silver and red conv)...like...driven trailer queens. BEAUTIFUL cars...don't get me wrong...but they are NOT track cars. The car above, however, IS a track car. He drove the HELL out of that car and you could tell. Tires were running low on tread...had a HUGE StopTech brake kit...lifters were clicking like hell when he drove up...you could tell he used the car for it's intended purpose before you even talked to the dude. I asked him why the lifters were ticking and he said he blew some of the oil out as he was going around the turns at the track while moto-crossing with the Vipers. All the oil would slosh over to one side of the oil pan when as he went around turns and get blown out the engine. He did the moto-cross thing...like...a day or two earlier and hadn't added yet. Was all he said the WHOLE truth? But who cares? THIS was just about my favorite car there.


1: THAT'S the guy that owned the red Z32 with the stoptech kit. Pretty cool guy. Worked at a tire and wheel shop or something. Got mad hook up on the brake kit.

lol...there's me...didn't even realize I was in that pic before. HA. I'm in another pic, too...not facing the camera in either...oh well.

We all have to throw our OWN Z meet sometime. If you think about it, we all don't live THAT far away from each other, I don't think. Sure we could find some meeting point in the middle of all of us. The majority of us are on the eastern half of the U.S., aren't we? (Excluding everyone from outside the US.)

yeah, that guy with the stop-tech brake kit...he definitely has good taste. Kazera wheels, JDM front fascia, etc...sounds familiar.

anyways, yeah i think chicago sounds like a good meeting point. right smack in the middle of the US. i wouldbe sure to go to that one!!!

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

god i love those kazera's and j-spec front fascia on that red Z. im glad that he drives his Z like its supposed to be driven, i know i do. but its not moto-cross, its auto-cross. moto-cross is with motorcycles.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

yeah, turns out that zeetoys thing is mostly show parts, a few intakes and stuff like that, but no real serious performance parts that i could see...

*sigh* And somehow I dont think ill be able to make it... That looks like an awesome Z meet. Some bloody nice pictures in that lot. I'm loving the pics of those old school Z's. The more i see the old school Z's the more I like them.

LLTZ, I'm sure it was an accident that you were turned around in ALL the photos A bit camera shy are we?

Me...camera shy...? No way. I've been a musician for around 10 years and I LOVE playing shows. I like the lime lite and I'm definately ANYTHING but shy.


There's me...lol


That's the goofy little poop dog that destroyed the apt.


That's the dog in trouble after we got home...little bastard...

I'm down for a Chicago meet. We had a few people that said they'd go. Anyone else? I heard Chicago is cool as hell. Haven't been there in...like...15 years or something like that.
