    Out of focus and no actual Datsun racers in the picture but pretty cool none-the-less. Anyone recognize the track?

    Thanks Fred. That is the first Japanese Z racing that I have seen. Is there any more out there on the net? I love the high speed! Those Z's flying by are incredible.

    Fuji Speedway had a great banked turn like Monza after that long straight but they removed it . It seems like it used to be nearly full out the whole track.

    I found this GTR Lap video with the banked turn. You can hear the gears and RPM..... pretty much top gear all around....Old Fuji speedway onboard GT-R - YouTube

    That's Summit Point turn 4 (the Chute) and that an actual Datsun racer (Datsun 2000) in the middle of the picture!

    "The Datsun Factory team, including drivers Sam Posey and Masahiro Hasemi, was fast in the 1980 ISMA Series. They had not yet, however, hooked up with Randy Lajoie and his Joie of Seating’s technical offerings. Here is their third driver, Paul Newman, with a slab of foam taped to his back. Not a lot of fitting and pre-molding here. From WINNING: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, by Matt Stone and Preston Lerner. (John Rettie Photo)"

    More to go with that last pic.

    "Lyn St. James on the passing of her friend, colleague and supporter Paul Newman
    Phoeniz, AZ (Oct. 1, 2008) | I admired Paul Newman first from afar while
    watching him race at the SCCA runoffs at Road Atlanta in the 70s, and then
    later when competing against him in the Trans Am Series in the 80s. It always amazed me that he was just "one of us" while at the track. We had a running joke between us that started when we were both competing in the Trans Am Series. In the Lime Rock Trans Am race Paul and I had a rear end collision in Turn 1. He qualified a number of positions behind me, but came barreling through the first turn of the first lap and attempted to pass everyone, which of course ended in disaster. We had other rear-enders … Cleveland comes to mind.

    This is a very special picture that was taken at the Dallas Grand Prix where
    Trans Am was the feature race. It was a temporary circuit and the distance between the paddock and the pits was huge. I was walking along to get to the pits to get to my car for a practice or qualifying session, Paul came along on his scooter and asked me if I wanted a lift. A photographer sent me the photo and years later I asked Paul if he would sign it (it's common knowledge that he didn't
    sign autographs) and the inscription "rear ended again" was just another reference/joke between us.

    This past year, through Newman's Own, he approved a grant to my Women in the Winner's Circle Foundation to launch Project Podium, a scholarship fund for women in racing. It was another example of how much he was willing to help others. When the Women in the Winner's Circle Foundation wanted to honor him this year with our Leadership Award at our annual luncheon, he gracefully declined the award saying, " I am truly honored that you wish to present me with your Leadership Award, so it's with considerable regret that I decline. On my 70th birthday, I resolved not to accept any more awards or honors. Not, you understand, out of arrogance, but a happy and mellow belief that I had been honored in gracious sufficiency and more would constitute excess. In the 10 plus years since then, I have made no exceptions. I thank you for thinking of me and wish you a successful and enjoyable luncheon."

    Paul Newman was a doer and we will miss him greatly! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family who I know were a significant part of this life."

    Finally got around to digging up my old photo album showing some very old photos of your car with Howell at the wheel. I'm guessing 1980. Took them while waiting for my novice race.

    That's what girls used to look like! Not the kind with "booty" that some people like lately. Skinny is the winny

    This is a great topic. All we need is everybody to get to the Lakeland event and to wear their best polyester pants and a big cheesy mustache & big hair! Elevator shoes, anyone?

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    I like the first line of that document. It's really different than the dry stuff you get today.

    I like this thread too. It's much more interesting than "Boobs" and I hope it's more prolific than Boobs.

    Default Black Beast

    I went to vintage GP at Indy what was a great weekend
    Just a few hours ago i was standing in front of the Black Beast as they pulled the leather belts on the hood and fired
    her up and took to the track.

    The beast was at the Indy 500 also here is the video.

    Yeah, those first races in Indianapolis was more of a weekend festival than just a day of racing, as it took the whole day to complete the distance.

    Here is a old race Z that I have purchased. Raced by Loren St. Lawrence in mainly SCCA C-Production, ICSCC C Improved Production, and SCCA Trans-Am. It also had one race in IMSA GTU. Raced with VIP's restaurant livery. It also raced against Jim Fitzgerald, Paul Newman, Don Kearney, Joel Anderson, and Frank Leary in the 1978 season all the way to the Road Atlanta run-offs. Wore numbers #39, #33, #39.

    Goal is to restore it to original state and livery, one day to race at the Monterey Historics.

    If anyone has any information on either driver or the car - I'd really appreciate the guidance! Steve Epperly @ ZTherapy, as well as Loren's wife, have confirmed that this is indeed the car (based off parts, pics and a plethora of other info). Logbooks missing due to a mishap between owners in the past. I believe they are with Ed Humphrey, who I am trying to locate and understand is now in AZ somewhere. I've researched through the archives and found some good info, but no links to the 33-373 (or 33-378, hard to make out) roll bar number / log book number. I'll be getting a package from the SF Region Archivist today with some race results. I've found pretty much everything online.

    Great photo's of the FAR cars - do you have any more? I'm specifically looking for photo's from 1975 of the second Maas car. I believe the photo of Maas "in the office" is the early car that won the '74 CP and IMSA GTU championships before being crashed in early 1975 at Laguna Seca??? Do you know when the photo was taken?

    thanks!

    Default Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion on Fox Sports 1

    Did anyone happen to see the Rolex Motorsports Reunion on Fox this weekend? A great interview and photo's of Joel Anderson and Rob Fuller with Joel's IMSA car.

    Also a great segment on Dave Stone's beautiful Bob Sharp 1970 240Z that was the editors pick of cars to take home. They had lots of coverage of Dave driving the car in the race!

    Finally some good coverage of Z's at arguably the premier vintage race event!!!

    I couldn't find when the show will be replayed, but worth recording and watching if you like classic cars and Z's....

    Bob
