    All coolant hoses, and I mean all, should be replaced at least every 10 years along with the expansion tank and drive belts. I’ve done this twice on my 2003 Z8 with less than 10k miles.

    Thanks Tony. GT3 is a serious machine. The wife only approved if Cabriolet, ergo the Turbo, otherwise it would have been a GT3.

    Somebody should tell the folks at Mecum that Z8s are roadsters, not “convertibles.” Mecum is just the wrong auction house for this car. Much more focused on American iron.

    It’s not so much about black or even black on black and more about the fact that on this side of the pond only ultra rare color combos or ultra low miles cars fetch that kind of money.
