    Default Farewell to my old friend

    For the past several weeks my one owner 79 280zx has been listed for sale in the classifieds section. It sold a few days ago and I must admit I had a tear in my eyes as I watched it drive away, knowing that in all likelyhood, I'll never see it again. I had envisioned that it would be sold to a local here in Colorado, that I would still get occasional glimpses of it and that it might even be involved in our local Z Car Club.
    Today, it is in a shipping container on its way to a new owner in Saudi Arabia. I know car guys and gals are the same worldwide - whether they're in England, Australia, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, The U.S. or Saudi Arabia, we are a world wide fraternity with a common interest in our cars. If only car guys were running all of the governments, i'm sure we would have a much more peaceful world to live in.

    Thanks to all who viewed my ad and to the ones who contacted me about my car.
    So goodby to my little white ZX and it's on to the restoration of my 72 240Z.

    I'm going to have to check out your '72 sometime.
    things will only bother you if you let them.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I think I'd feel the same way about my '72 now.

    I have been tossing up about selling my 72. This makes me think i will hold it for a while yet. At least for another summer down here. NZ
    I must admit i would be sad to see her go as well.
