hey guys, yesterday my job had me go do an on-call stop at a residence. as i walked up the driveway i immediately noticed the shape of the car covered. spoke with the retired owner and sure enough it's what i expected. he is the original owner but he admitted having it repainted the original color once. sitting since '95, he said "life got busier, i'm married, got kids" so he decided to park it. he used to start it and run it once in awhile, not anymore. i offered to help get it street legal and road worthy but he turned around and asked me if i wanted it and to take it awayShocked......needless to say, i was left speechless!

here's a crappy cell phone pic

thanks bro!! not only was i excited but a whole lotta mixed emotions like 'thank u lord for making our paths cross today!!', 'can't wait to get it home', 'oh dang, where am i gonna park it' to 'oh sh*t, what, when, or how am i gonna explain this to my wife!'
i'll get it home most likely after x-mas after i figure out the logistics. i'll probably move the blue outta the way or maybe sell it? i dunno.
as for the color, i admit i've seen Zs in oranges,reds, black and blues but never the original light yellow.
haha, i wish i was wearing my DMT t-shirt yesterday!!

My first choice when I ordered my '76 280Z  was the pale yellow but I couldn't get it and took an orange one which I loved immediately.  It's still running at 282K but I aint sellin'.

LOL i took her out once to a car cruise night with ole smoothy, we ate at Wendy's and she went to Kmart while i cruised with friends in the parking lot. was that a 'date night'? i dunno, we had fun but she did say smoothy is a lil' loud on the freewayLOL

BTW, i did mention the Z to her when i got home yesterday, i was too excited, but i didn't get to the part about bringing it home.... yetWink
