    It's got the same finish as one of Bond's Aston Martins - the one the makes the car invisible (from whatever not too long ago Bond movie that was w/Halley Berry in it...)

    It is actually a nice car - Burgundy with a hot Rebello stroker. Rick literally lives like a block away from me. He owns 3 different Z's at the moment, but I think he must have forgotten to post the pic! (That or it's his black Z...which may have just rusted away in this shot...ok, bad joke - sorry Rick!)

    I can see absolutely no flaws whatsoever. Who else here can say that about their car?

    Alright, let me throw the poor guy a small lifeline. Here's a "teaser" shot. So I won't steal his thunder, this is all you'll get, but at least we know the car isn't "vaporware"

    Default Sorry!! -Invisible Z

    At least I provided some humor here, I do have a 72 Z in fact two plus a 77 Z. Rich informed me that nothing showed up, I will introduce myself and post shots on Thursday.
    It was my fault, I washed and detailed it so well - I can not see it! I think by Thursday it should start showing up!

    Not that we had any doubt, but that is a really nice looking car. Its in great shape! I have a question. In the photo of the engine, there is a white,circular looking thing in the lower left hand corner. It would be up front on the drivers side. It looks like a reservoir of some kind? Anyway, post some more pictures of your other cars too! Good job.

    Rick-
    Your Z looks great. Stunning engine bay............keep those pictures coming!! On down the road I'm going to have to check out one of those stroker engines..........I've heard a lot of good things about them. Does she get up and go?
    Life's a journey; enjoy the ride!

    Nice looking car. I want a Rebello engine very badly. Justifying the spend is the hard part.

    Default Thanks for the comments

    Thanks guys, for the comments.
    I have nothing but praise for Dave Rebello and his work.The car runs great lots of power and no issues. I have called him a couple of times and he was real helpfull.
    In fact ever since I bought the 72 I rarely drive my 77Z.
    (I bought that one from the original owner last year. Its going up for sale soon, it has 68k documented miles)
    Once you get use to the stroker other cars feel flat. It is worth the money ($6,800).
    Thanks bigOak for posting the pics. Yes its in NJ, not many Z cars in this state.The coolant reservoir is that what you are seeing?
    Unfortunately I am having 2 issues with the car I will research then post.
