If you do a search on that website search for both 240z and 260z separately.

http://autopics.com.au/

 

There is a few more photos of cars being raced in period in Australia. There was a couple of Len Brennan's car, I wonder if he's seen them all?

 

I always assumed Len's car was a 1970 model, but realised from this photo.

There is no vents in the rear hatch! So perhaps his car was 1 of the later 71 models with the Blue interior we already know about? That would be a cool find. Sadly Len doesn't know what number it was. He muttered something about an ex-wife throwing stuff out...   >:D

 

I also did a search for RX-7 and found some cool photos of early RX-7's in some cool livery.

 

The ghost busters car is interesting to say the least.

Watch out, Gav. There's are LOADS of miscaptions/mistakes on the autopics stuff that have been uncorrected for ages. Wrong years, wrong events (the above photo is captioned wrong year and wrong event...!) and sometimes wrong crew/car.

 

User beware...

Good to know, although it's amazing you know what year and event it was from a photo. I guess you know the cars that well.

Some of it is just general knowledge that comes from tracking the movements and fates of the cars involved. There were not any works 240Zs taking part in the 1970 Southern Cross, or the 1971 Southern Cross come to that...

 

Apart from that, it's perhaps about being more familiar with individual cars through researching the what, where and who over the years.

Agree. But we never had and still don't have race series for sports cars like the Z line which sucks big time. All about sedan racing here, pfffft.
