Just had a lovely day at our local Steam gathering, ok it rained for 20 minutes and I got soaked but its kind of expected this year.

There is always plenty to see there but I was overjoyed to see a beautiful 260z 2+2 in the main car stand. The rules have recently been changed to allow newer cars.

I was even more pleased to see a Z Club sticker in the rear window. It great to see that some owners are getting out and about.

Didnt have a camera with me but i will be taking one tomorrow.

Saw this at a local classic car show a few months ago and snapped a couple of pics. Looked fantastic. Anyone here's?

Silver S30 Would say 240z might have been 260z not close enough to be sure.
Was spotted heading to livingston centre saturday 26th September about 14.40.

Well I've been out in my 110 Red car on both days this weekend, making the most of the dry and sunny weather. It really is a comfortable car and drives beautifully - my wife is quite happy in it, which helps.

I took the green car so didn't go down the strip. It was nice watching some racing and just checking out the cars. I'm normally stuck in the fire up lane all day and get to see nothing.

Are you sure there's not a flux capacitor in there, and it was yourself you saw leaving?

I think it will struggle to reach 88mph on that bit of road. Been driving a mixture of the green and black cars and it's amazing the difference a 2.8 makes (which is in the black one).

I thought the green one pulled pretty strongly? (that's what Datsun Dave told me after he visited you a while back). Is the difference very noticeable? I had three years between my car being on the road with a standard L24 and then the current beefed up L28, so my frame of reference is woolly! (although I know it has a good 50-60hp more that the old engine and is generally a more aggressive animal)

It does pull good but not as good as the 2.8.
