    Z8 Related collectibles and other cool stuff

    It seems the forum has been kind of quiet of late. In order to try and spark up some conversation, I thought it might be fun for those who want to participate to post pictures of unique or unusual Z8-related collectibles, memorabilia, literature, clothing, toys, etc. I know some of you (I'm looking at you, Ton!) have a treasure trove of cool Z8 stuff. I have a couple such items, and to start it off here is something I made myself by combining my somewhat battle-scarred original Z8 shift knob with the base from a promotional item I was given many years ago. The aluminum base originally came with a fake wood shift knob that substituted the letters spelling "Y E E H A W" for the numbers indicating the gear positions. I keep it on my desk in my home office and occasionally use it to run through the gears when I can't drive the real thing.

    So, whatcha got?

    London Premier Tie-tack

    This pin was a giveaway at the London premiere of The World is Not Enough. That is the completely unverified story.

    This link should go to a little video about the premiere that has some nice clips of the car. Notably, Q's assistant mentions the six cup holders in the car. Those are missing from my car. Also missing, the integrated missile system - if anyone knows of a good aftermarket source I'd sure be interested!

    A random choice of my stuff to start with:

    -My Z8 breakfast

    -The leather dealer showcase

    -Glas object of the S62 engine

    -A sterling silver pin handed to the visitors of the "Manufaktur" (Z8 assembly line)

    - The Z8 watch (part of the press kit of the LA press meeting)

    - Several Z8 club pins

    - The (non US) salesman book in 5 different language ( some for sale)

    As I said just a pick, will be continued

    Hoi Ton, jij bent een echte liefhebber. Heb je het kopje zelf laten maken?

    No, it was manufactured by Thomas, a subsidiary of Studio Rosenthal
