This is an interesting topic as i have crossed paths with many who know the way of the Z and wish to seek enlightenment.

For perhaps if a card was printed with the details of the ausZcar website then many others could be drawn towards the cause. And there would be much rejoicing.

Instead of a card you could have a smaller version of the sticker made up which has the website on it. then you could put that under their windscreen.

Haha I was thinking about this type of thread today. Today while I went for a trip to Dan Murphy's on Nepean Highway, Brighton and walked out amused by our purchase (absinthe!) I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this fantastic red 260Z two seater! It had charcoal coloured Konig Rewind wheels and a wooden steering wheel. It was fairly decent condition, I think there was some very slight rust near the front arch but either than that was a great sight and made an already good mood, great! I took some photos of it, so shal post on here once i bluetooth it from my phone

I havnt been seeing much in the way of Zeds lately, though I think there has been an increase in Z32 300ZX, some nice ones around.
Has anyone seen the "HOT260"?  Its a white 260 2+2 with a V8 and bonnet scoop.

Well Nizmozed and I both have our z's in out garages with engines out and heads off. We will not be spotted in them. Unless we decide to tow them lol. Spotted white 280z on the monaro heading southbound yesterday but no idea of the time.
