Hi Guys,
Yes good day out in the sun,
pregnant mrs. doesnt help to stay out an chat with the boys.
Was good to catch up with the few I caught up with.
There were some excellent examples of pure modified jap cars, some local some imported.
My highlights were....
2 x green rx4's
1 x ra23 celica, black metalic pearl, nice well presented car this, (near the boys zeds too made it easy to see!)
Orange 180b 4 door and orange gem tc/td coupe next to it.
the lexo sc6 thing in the middle.
the blue corona wagon 2jz powered, (very nicely built retrofit, extremely well fitted and positioned in the engine bay, el grandma spec, quite liked it)
the black 1600 and the black rx3/4 nearby.....

Some bad examples, but im sure the owners think they are pimp!!!!.
s14 with stitch welded eyebrows over the tyres, (great example of how not to weld too!!)
just some bog stock barely mod'd adm s114/15's cmon lift your game.

Looooved the Red GTR (replica if it is or not, dont care) this was an absolute stunna, loved the presence of this thing.


anywho, no more BS.
i need to get my wheels out there, no more fn around......

Hey guys,

I went along to All Japan Day after lunch and was blown away by the zeds on display! I saw you all organising to get them lined up on the forums and couldn't wait to get down for a look.

Absolute hats off to you all on some brilliant modification and restoration work.

Paul, thanks for taking the time to have a quick chat with me at the end of the day - as I mentioned, really love how the patina project has worked out. I'm a little disappointed I live on the plains and don't get to see you driving around a little more  :-[

I'm looking at getting back into a zed asap because I really do miss the character of the things, they are just a pleasure to drive and appreciate. Hopefully I'll have one again soon and be a bit more active on the forums.

Congratulations all on a great show, from a real fan and enthusiast it was an absolute highlight to see some of your hard work first hand.

Cheers,
James

Nice work guys, that's the best 'Z' turnout at an AJD yet - in the past there's been about 2-cars tops.  Unfortunately, I couldn't make it this year - the DR30 Hardtop had just run out of seasonal reg and the Z is still in the shed (yes, still...). Quietly hopeful that it might be able to make an appearance next year, if I can afford a new ECU before then.

Greg, you need to take one of your cars, not Nicks '280Z'!  :D
