They parked the two most important cars side-by-side; the Healey 3000 and the Datsun 240Z 8) Together, they account for more than half the miles I've driven in my lifetime.

And for most of my skinned knuckles. :oops:

Ten-four on the skinned knuckles :!: :!:

I would agree with Carl that the orange car is a '72 A/T.

But my favorite picture is the third one down. With those gloves
hanging over the hatch sill, it looks like some down-and-out person--
some derelict, possibly drunk or stoned, is trying to climb in.

(My mis-wired mind at work again; it always seems to see or hear
things differently from everyone else.) So to me, that 3rd photo
is a CLASSIC.

What a weekend, visited the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche headquarters and museums with MAD Mike T. in Stuttgart. In the Mercedes-Benz museum I had the chance to speak some minutes with Mr. K at the cell phone. This 102 years old man has so much humor and seems to be sprightly as if he would be 70 (like his son :D). I asked if he would sign the glove box cover of my Z. Of course he will. How cool is that.

Gott im Himmel! What a wonderful place to spend a day!!! And with Mad Mike, too! Wunderlich. And to talk directly with Mr. Katayama!!! Incredible.

We will eagerly await your stories of this rare experience, Thor!

Heidelberg! Oh, for a Berliner Weiss or Dortmunder Dunkel in Heidelberg! You live a good life, Thor. :wink:

Your Z looks better than all the other cars (to me), except maybe that wonderful C-Jaguar. It makes us happy to remember you have the CTZCC decal on your car, and all those Germans probably ask you about it.

My Z facing the infamous Eiger Northwall in Grindelwald, Suisse. Ever was a dream to get with my Z to this fantastic place.

Thorz your z looks fantastic in that scenery! it reminds me of my first trip ever in my Z when I drove her from Osnabruck through Germany, Switzerland and northern Italy to the French Riviera. Your photos make me dearly miss driving my Z - it's still in progress. I was about to start the engine last week after head modification but the starter failed and I had to order a stronger one. not yet arrived..

Ooohhhh, how magnificent! How beautiful! Absoultely breath-taking.

That second shot, with the pristine streets, wind-swept Swiss Chalet and snow-capped "Eiger-Sanction" peak in the background, should be your next Christmas card.

Z seems very, very happy there.

Hi Thor:
Great Pictures - I can't tell you how happy it makes me - to see you really enjoying that Datsun 240Z.

FWIW,
Carl B.
