Just got back from the 2nd Annual Multi-State Datsun Classic, awesome good time!! So many beautiful Datsuns of all flavors! Numerous Zcars, Roadsters, 620s, 1200s and 510s! A freakin' 1970 JDM Laurel!!! Oh, and a very surprised big rig trucker! After the show, a bunch of us from all around the West Coast went on a run up the the Grand Canyon finding a private airport that housed a collection of classic cars and planes! They had a working Ford Tri-Motor! Plans were made to return there in June for a ride around the Canyon on the Tri-Motor. The next day, we gathered up a group and ran down through Oak Creek to Cottonwood. Had what's become our traditional burger there and then head up to Jerome. Jerome is a town on the side of a cliff! Too cool. We had to negotiate the roads there slowly which allowed us to actually hear all the great comments from the tourists gathered there. Once passed Jerome, we had a spirited run down Mingus mountain and back to the Southern Metro areas. What a great weekend! Can't wait for next year!!

Just brought home my 260z! A good buddy found it driving through one of the Tucson neighborhoods. This car was tucked in someone's back yard, behind a very tall corrugated metal wall. We went back a couple weeks later to try to talk to the dude about the car but couldn't get in to even ring the bell. As we were skulking around, we heard a very deep, very angry sounding voice ask us "What can I help you with?". "Uh, can we see that Zcar in your back yard?".............
