    Bay Area Concours in Danville: Sunday 18 September 2011

    Another event for Bay Area Z8 owners to consider that benefits Parkinson research (see link below). At the urging of one of the Concours organizers I met last week, I'll be there with my car. I look forward to meeting other Z8 owners and enthusiasts.

    I bet a Steinway handles like a dog on the track - so probably not a piano...

    Ha! Didn't know he designed those! But then again, I didn't say he designed this either.

    Surely not the Toyota GT2000, those are both super rare and expensive, not really trackday toys.

    Talking

    No, Z was closer. And, I don't think he worked on or near that. The project was somewhat related, though.

    Looks like the deal could be dead! It's a Datsun 1600 roadster. My biggest problem is that it looks like a full-on restoration project. For that money and energy, I would rather do an Alfa or such. I'll let you know if it ends up happening. I'm really interested in doing a little vintage racing... on a budget.
