WOW!!!!-- That's the car we first noticed at the Cruise, which got us
into the discussion w/Chris, which led into the introduction to Frank,
which led into the...................well, y'all know the rest by now.

I would say that that makes Chris' Z a pretty significant car!

Thanks, Chris!..........All Z Best,.............Kathy & Rick

One of our Club's most-distinctive carz. I remember the very first time I ever saw this 280Z, at a Club meeting in Old Saybrook. It fascinated me, and demonstrated a LOT of personal innovation. Chris pretty much lives with this car, and knows it inside and out.

We have had new members joining this Club, immediately asking who owns this car. They saw it somewhere (or heard it) and became inspired to join us. It's a crowd gatherer where ever Chris parks it.

Somewhere we have pictures of this car in an old industrial setting, which Chris sent to the website during one of Keith's photo contests. We immediately got emails and posts from people who remember seeing this car on the CT roads, and just couldn't forget it.

One of my favorite elements of this Z is the 'personaliZed' instrument selection Chris has created for it. It even has a little meter which measures "ambient nonsense".

Chris' pretty girlfriend (Meg), has named this the Carrot Car.

Congratulations, Chris ~ this car deserves to be highlighted during the peak of the driving zeason.

Frank
