    Regardless, is he the Z Reg Albrecht? Did I just commit a sin in that sentence and need to go meditate on mount Fiji to cleanse my spirit?

    They contacted me actually and I suggested they try the Z Register. I wasn't happy with the 'press' after my Classic Car Weekly experience. Also they want you to do all the work and they get paid!

    I suggested in this day and age the best advice for anyone wanting to buy a car is to join a club, learn from members and then discuss specific cars for sale.

    Books are great for reference and history/development of a car but if you are thinking of buying a car you need to see it, take someone with you who knows them from experience and drive it if poss.

    I actually said that you wouldn't find a wife from reading about women in a book.

    Perhaps I was a bit strong.

    ROFLMAO - utterly brilliant Rob! I tried that for years!!!!

    On a more serious note though, the classic and sports car thing left me feeling a little less enthusiastic too. Despite all the fan fare and promises before the photoshoot, when I asked for 6 copies of the magazine for my time, I was told to go buy them. But I didn give up and they did eventually concede. I never heard about paying my expenses either.

    I do feel they are a little too self absorbed and forget the fact that people put personal time in; if nothing else a symbolic gesture keeps them supporting the magazines.

    This time, its not! I thought we had the marque expert?

    As a side note, whats the classic Z register like? Is it a magazine based club?

    From what little I know, I think they are more into the purity / originality of S30s and less into the mods etc. I only know of them though their FB presence.

    But here's a good read ...
