    10 Years Today!

    August 31, 2000 - I saw a Z8 on the lot of a dealer. Even though I showed up in a Subaru Outback wagon, they let me test drive it. I bought the first Z8 I ever saw, and drove it home that night!

    Here's a picture I took right after I purchased the car (on film!)

    Many happy returns!! I was exactly a year behind you, it was this week nine years ago that 77715 became my first Z8.

    PS: talking of History, today we finally completed the last of the site updates, the updated (and rarely viewed) History section should now match the Gallery for iPad/iPod/iPhone viewers.

    I'm more of an embellishment - like expensive jewelry

    It?s been exactly 2 years to the day that I got my Alpina. It's the second most beautiful woman in my life but requires less maintenance.

    Very nice history section, Andrew. The Z8 was Edy's favorite car after she saw an article about one in 1998 or '99. We bought one about 9 years later. Some things are worth waiting for. Edy and Erik

    The first time I saw her...

    It was the LA Auto Show...I stood there for 45 minutes just watching the car go 'round and 'round on the turntable. I haven't looked at another car like that since.
