Nice Z !
I'm waiting for Noah to come pick me up. We've had about 4" of rain in the last 24 hours

Its still cold here in the UK but unusually dry,its not far off summer for all of us on this forum where ever we are and its going to be good getting back on warm roads.
Some poor guy near damn crashed his car at a junction trying to catch site of my Z and his lovely girlfriend was climbing round the back of the seat too to get a look at my lovely red lady with its roof off,these cars are even rarer over here and do create a lot of attention and admiring eyes with frequent contact and chats with people who would just pass by normaly,they love em.

Oh - don't worry - I'm moving east! I still wouldn't take your car out - too much salt on the roads, IMO.

BTW - what are ya doing this weekend? I'm coming to help you tear down that beast!

Luckily I'm moving to Vegas this coming weekend

Cheers,

85 isn't considered warm? Jeez - if it hit 55 here tomorrow, everyone would be dressed in shorts and t-shirts - no joke!

Hell, it's 25 here and I'm wearing shorts. Then again I'd be wearing shorts if it was 5 out!

You might want to consider delaying that a week Ron - still a little risky IMO. Ice + Pilot Sport Cups = disaster!

BTW - you forgot to post those dyno numbers!

Spring sprung for a little bit here in the VA beach/Chesapeake VA area, was warm last week, but back in the 40s and 50s this week. Since I'm from FL, it may as well be in the 20s, I can't stand the cold weather. Still started my spring maintenance on the Z, and hope to get Kurt's prototype direct port nitrous system complete within the next month.

Ron, there is supposedly a big vette show in downtown Norfolk next weekend, there are a couple ZR1 guys going, do you plan on showing up? I will probably stop by, but not with my Z, it will likely still be apart in the garage.
