Default Re: shove it down our throats? not possible!

Easyguy.......again....thanks for the kind words. as i probably told you awhile back, close friends of my son called him "Batman" and his car the "Batmobile". it was always black(his choice from day one) and with that wing and how we was in his daily life, it was very fitting at the time. so it was perfect timing after i finished the car and posted the video that you mentioned it reminded you of the Batmobile. simple things like that are sometimes the most meaningful after a build like this one.i have a batman Xmas ornament that i hang from his rear view mirror.
ill take a pic and post it .

ZXtoy.......to you as well, many thanks. i lost Jarad this time of the year,so as you might imagine, the Holidays aren't what they might be . To start off a new year with being able to post new pics of his car and talk to "Zcar family friends" about his car, well, i think it helps to keep his memory alive for me.being chosen as Jan2010 Z car of the month was the best present i could have gotten. renewed interest in the project means more than you might know

thanks WannaBREz....it has been quite the pick me up


a pic of his Xmas ornament as promised......
Happy New year to all

Beautiful story, made my eyes tear up. As far as the rest of the pics go it brings a question to my mind. "Why has this not been showcased in Modified Magazine or Import Tuner?" The USA no the WORLD needs to see this beauty!!!

On a side note May I use the primer'd pic to modify with Photoshop, I'd like to see it in different colors.

sure ,you can photoshop any pics of this car that you like.
as far as magazines.......i guess ive just considered zcar.com and the Z internet community as close to family as it gets when it comes to my z cars so i have never submitted anything to magazines.

I didn't mind seeing more
Congrats to you on the honor of the Car of the Month and it deserves it. The car is awesome. I'm sure your son is there in spirit. Thanks for sharing the story.

Extremely nice car. This is one of the wildest Z's I've ever seen and one of the nicest. If you don't mind me asking, what did you undercoat the car with? It looks durable but has a very nice finished look to it. Keep posting pics of your car because I never get tired looking at it either!

thanks again guys.

sctoolguy.....the entire engine compartment, inside of the car , as well as the entire undercarrage is spraypainted with a product called ZOLATONE. its like what they used back in the 70's to splatter paint trunks in cars. the big difference nowadays is that they offer it in a ton of custom colors to choose from. and what makes it indestructable is that the same company offers a killer clear coat to apply over it.looks great and lasts forever. we painted my 72 Z underside with it over 12 years ago and it still looks like the day we sprayed it. glad you like it
