New plastic toy

Post by Gazza » Sun 20 Sep, 2015 19:43

I became the latest owner of this Z1 this week.

Already been out for a weekend in Norfolk stretching its legs.

Not my pic but it is the actual car, not had a chance to take fresh pics due to enjoying the drive so much :D

Hi Gazza,

Congratulations, looks great in red (perhaps i'm biased, my Z3 being in that colour).

A unique car. Took a look around Hinckley Leics, today as they had a host of classics in the town. There was a nice black Z1 there getting a lot of attention.

Enjoy the open top, door down motoring.

Congrats, Gary. Very sad to see the previous owner part with it, but so glad to see it go to a good home. It is not an easy car to keep up with, so I hope you're going to keep up the tradition and drive it in the same manner. :wink:

Cheers R.

A real dilemma when it comes to cruise time.

Congrats.
