I unveiled 777 today and drive about 45 minutes on rt34, rt8 and local roads.
Other than a fuel smell which I always have it drove flawlessly. I'm looking forward to another year of fun. I also got my 1982 CB750K running and it's so nice to ride.

I retrieved my Z from it's winter home on Saturday ! Put in the recovered seats . . . . no more shearling cover for me. :thumbs_up: 8)
Great feeling driving that Z again. :mrgreen:

Mine reluctantly awoke from hibernation and warmed to OpTemp in the driveway, but has some issues I want Vinny to explore before I trust it on any long road trips to Lawn Gyland, Rochester or Scranton.

I took mine out today as well. My wife and I drove out to Southbury, had lunch and came back home on Rt 34 along the river. The car ran great. I don't know about you guys but every time I get in the Z after a long hibernation, I just can't believe how great the car drives and how much fun it is to go through the twisties. It's an experience I enjoy every spring! :D

I feel the same way and can't believe it's 47 years old.
I want to drive it harder and it keeps up with my commands.
It could use more power but it's very well balanced.
I may look into a 5 speed though, on the highway it's screaming along.

More POWER is something we all would love to have in our Z's. "The more, the merrier"!!!

"Mo power! Mo speed! Mo trouble! Mo fun!" :mrgreen: 8) Z only way to enjoy life. :shock: :lol: :D

Mine stubbornly woke up a few weeks ago as well. Once she lit off and warmed up she settled into a nice smooth idle. I took each of my sons for rides around our neighborhood. I love how excited they get about riding in the Z! They call it our race car! :D

I just installed my "new" used seats and brand new carpet tonight. Next up will be the fan shroud and new fan clutch. Then I am taking it in for a glasspack in the mid-pipe.

Then it's go time!
