Picture 2nd Z. 1976 280z "Alana"
I traded my 1st z for this one, on top of cash paid in the spring of 2007. She is a mild custom restore. Lots of extra work done over the past few years - turbo upgrade (original n/a engine), complete stock A/C installation, interior modifications, powder coating, and various aftermarket accessories. I have many people to thank in getting things done to this Z - Franky Williams of Z Performance Racing, Neil "Chief" Freckleton of the U.S. Army, Final Touch Powder Coating, Motor Sport Auto, and especially for Doug Nicol who did the original restore before selling the finished car to me. Finally, to all those friends and strangers who've ever helped when I was broke on the road in this car. Thank You. -- May she be road worthy, always.

  4th Z. 1987 300zx 2+2 "Pooja"
I never thought I would ever get into a 300, especially since I am an S130 guy, but I got into Z31 Turbo and just got bit! I ended up getting an n/a 300zx. Though, it's not as fast or fun as the 86T, it has it's own unique quality and zing.
This car came to me in November of 2012 - Champaign Metallic Pearl (Repainted Orginal Color), original tan leather interior, reupolstered seats, crack-free dash, window louvers and T-tops. 140,000 miles. It's had quite a bit of recent work done, including head work, timing belt, all gaskets from the motor all the way back, and front end body work due a road accident last February. I've been through a lot with this car and even though it seems to have more issues than the earlier zcars and has broke down more times than I care to count, it turns heads and is a blast to drive.
I believe I am the only person in the Capital City of Abu Dhabi to be driving a Z every day. She stands out... even in a society plagued with luxerious SUVs, fancy trucks, and exotic European sports cars. The car's name actually came from a friend of mine from Nepal. She really loved the Z, so I named it after her. Cute Girl too!

Pooja is my DD here in the United Arab Emirates.

  3rd Z. 1983 280zx "Suzanna"
Bought this car in 2010 from New Mexico, where it spent most of it's life. N/A, Mostly orginal, metallic silver with 2-tone black/gray, with T-Tops.
Ironically, I always said I wouldn't have another silver Z, and ended up getting another one... with a silver metallic paint job. Suzanna is my daily driver when I am at home. I drove her from New Mexico to Northern Utah, then across the country back to North Carolina. What a drive that was! She has working A/C, good compression across all six, and minimal mechanical problems. A dream to drive :)

  1st Z. 1980 280zx -"Dianna"
My beloved first Zed - All original, silver metallic, 2-tone blue/silver interior, slick top. Purchased from a sweet elderly couple in Alamosa, Colorado shortly after the 9/11 attacks. Owned from 2001 to 2007. Met my wife and lost my virginity in that car... I sure miss it and I really regret selling it :(
Dianna, where are you now?
