It is a bit wet on Sydney town today, daughter has Saturday Gymnastics, all other cars in use. The trusty Z ventures out into greyness.

Yep.....most likely my fault ..... that was out the back of Broken Hill...and I do remember on that trip while sliding through a mud hole the floor plugs came out and made pretty red patterns on the roof lining.... but I wish now I didn't have to sell it when I did..

wonder where it is now......it was in very good condition when I sold it in 1977 regardless of a few dirt road trips.

Do you know what number it was? Looks like a 73 model with the indicators above the bumpers.

No idea of numbers...only the rego number.....it was a 1973 car bought new  from Crawford's in Brookvale in about  March or April that year and sold back to them in early 1977.

Hey Gary, give the guy a break, how do you expect him to remember that when he's so old he can't even remember people's names.

Yeah, not real flash up this way.

I finally got around to sorting out the rear brakes on the Z. Had a seized adjuster on the NSR, good as new now.

I know the feeling. I drove my car from Darwin to Perth when there was some big rain in the Kimberley.

That would have been an amazing trip.

Great to a Z getting out and used.

 

Maybe we need a thread - "The longest journey in my Z" ?
