    I just tave up detailing unless it isn't going to rain.

    FYI, With two days to go, I found out that the DVD forthis convention has 4000 pictures on it- so far.

    BTW, it hasn't rained today ( Wednesday.) Mid-Ohio was great- except for 1 guy.

    thxZ

    Looks like I missed a great time. I had fiscal year inventory with my company and I tried to persuade the owner to let me off to no avail. I even won an all expense paid trip from Zippo Lighter Company to the PGA Championship in Atlanta last week and he still wouldnt let me off...(I would have headed straight up I-71 to Cleveland instead )
    Thanks for sharing and post some more when you have time.

    I'm great at taking my Z apart, putting it back together has been a whole different story.

    I'm wondering how the Optima battery on the p1010016.jpg car is held in place.

    Whew!!

    I saw the thread title (some pics from cleveland!) and - what with all the spammers today - I feared more porn! What a relief to find real Z content!

    If you look closely, you will see a custom hold down that fits around the bottom of the Optima. It was very slick. There was another Z with the Optima on it's side suspended from the firewall.

    I didn't want to say what happened... It was probably enough hurt already.

    there are about 1000 photos from the Mid Ohio event on the photos website so go there, and browse till your eyes fall out.

    Don't forget to order your favorite photos!

    I had a great (short) time at Z Con. Came in Monday and left after the judging on Tuesday. A small thing like work got in the way. I am looking forward to getting the results of the judged show.

    I was browsing the DVD from the convention, and I counted over 2,500 pics on it! The photographer is a Z enthusiast, so he made very well sure only the best photos were taken!

    You all should get the DVD because it won't be soon for another convention to be held in Cleveland...

    WOW, little wonder that the Z is the "best of breed" so to speak in all areas for nearly four decades (and likely to hit some kind of anals of all-time treasures in most meaingful car anals)! Thanks for this thread. Since Cleveland is also our old stomping grounds, sorry we weren't there. Awesome/mind-boggling beauties! Thanks for sharing them.
    Love the Z
