Thanks for the welcomes and yes, when I get my lovely new 'Z tidied up, I'd definately be up for some meets.
So first impressions; Love it - the drivers electric seat up/down movement is broken (only fault on the car), and stuck in an awkwardly high position but even this didn't spoil an amazing ride home.
The handling is as everyone described; tight and great fun. The looks are gorgous, but the winner for me is the engine. Silky smooth power delivery - lovely and docile when you just want to toddle about (it's almost like an auto - it doesn't really car what gear it's in!), but I slipped it into 3rd at 45mph on a slip road, floored it and wow, the acceleration and the sound were really satisfying. It's not quite as quick as the Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo I had about 4 years ago, but heck at least it's not going to die on me at the entrance to the Tyne Tunnel with 400 cars backed up behind me
...... Really beautiful - transformed with the top down (waited til I got home for that pleasure). The wife loves it. It's generally HAPPY DAYS!
I spent 6 hours cleaning it today and enjoyed every second!
Another very happy surprise was the insurance - got it with Classicline: £190
per year !!!! That's fully comp, with a £250 excess, and based on a £4,000 valuation and 1,500 miles per year.
