    Default Z Cars in Road & Track, Car and Driver and Motor Trend

    Hey for those of you who subscribe to R & T, Car and Driver or Motor Trend there are several Z's featured in a new Nissan advertisement in the July issues. There is a picture of Me and my BRE replica (with several BRE decals airbrushed off the car for some unknown reason) taken at MSA this year.

    Before you run out to the newsstand, keep in mind that these advertisements are only for people who subscribe, and not on the newsstand copies for some reason!?

    Someone asked this past weekend at VIR if I was in R&T this month. Since I don't have a subscription right now I would like to know if my Red #99 was in the ad.

    Keep me posted,

    Alan

    Sorry Alan, no your car is not in the advertisement (although it does deserve to be there!).

    There is a red and yellow C Production Z #56, my Z and several street cars. Most of the photos were taken at MSA this last year...

    I remember that I had to sign off on several waivers for Chiat/Day to use photos of my cars and me.

    A few photos look to be from a Texas club event as well.

    Saw it, liked it, wondered who has the blue 240Z.
    Was really curious as to the BRE car. It is beautiful! I saw the first national championship win at Road Atlanta in 1970.

    What do you do with the car beside show it?

    Lowell,

    The Blue 240Z was photographed at the MSA show this year (I recognise the background of the photo) but have no idea who it belongs to.

    The BRE car is built to race, I just finished building it in December of last year. It will be parked with the BRE 510 for a month this August at Nissan USA headquarters. After that...well there are a few things that it still needs...I guess I will focus on those little items and then go racing.

    So, when are you sending all of us an autographed photo of you and your BRE? Now that you're famous and all...

    Oh, YES, nice cars.
    Hey Mike, put me down for one of those autographs, they might be worth a fortune 20 years from now.(But not if he expects payment).

    By the way Carl number 2, I haven't seen any cakes of Bon Ami yet, ----- Still looking though.

    Famous hardly...Infamous more likely...

    Hey I am just a schmuck who built a replica of a famous car...

    The car and it's orginal race team deserve the credit. 35 years later and it is still a marketing tool. That is something to say about longevity.

    On a side note HMSA (Historic Motor Sports Assoc) will let me run the car at Monterey next year!! Cant wait to get her out on the track!!

    Nah, while driving around a blind curve at about 50 mph, I killed a duck that hit my car just above my windshield.

    Very interesting!?
    The "vintage cars are 'from the era, or like those that raced' "
    Where as, "historic cars are ones that have racing history.

    I understood the two categories were distinct and the "folks" in the vintage/historic racing community were pretty particular over this issue.

    I would be happy to see your car on the track at speed, with a white TR6 just behind.

    I was there, watched them, went out an bought one, there has been no better manufactures competition.

    We'll be running with Speed Ventures for an opentrack day on Sat. July 2nd at Willowsprings big track. Trying to get one more track day in before it gets too hot this summer. So if you aren't already going out, you can come do some testing there!

    Yep, still lookin good after 35 years... Cheers!
