Hi All,
Its been a while so I thought I should reintroduce myself. One or two may vaguely remember me as I was only around a short while but now Im back. Life went a bit crazy, not least with this...
https://www.telegrap...s-hamilton/amp/

I almost sold my 370z several times... but hung on until I recovered from the insane financial impact of supporting my sons ambitions. Which now, I am happy to say I have. Ironically, that was the beginning of the end for that Z...

And the beginning of the beginning of the beginning as, after 9.5 years, I was finally able to buy myself a new car... I looked and looked and looked... and kept coming to the same conclusion...

So, now (well for a while now) Im a proud owner of a 2018 370z Nismo!
https://www.instagra.../p/BxDVZvtptSw/

I thought where can I find the friendliest z enthusiasts to connect with, who once welcomed me into their community nearly 10 years ago now... And here I am!

Hello once again!

I remember you!  Welcome back mate :)

 

Nice mota you have there ;)

 

Take a look at our calendar and get yourself signed up to some meets.  You aren't too late to come to Silverstone in July for the 50th Anniversary of the Z cars :bounce:

Hello once again!

Now there is a man with a similarity with my life.
Look forward to meeting up and comparing Nismo’s.

Hello again. :hello:

I didn't get enough out of my first Zed experience, and am enjoying another very good looking and sounding dose too.

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - When you give up driving, you’re not going to look back wistfully on the car you owned with the nicest dashboard top or speaker grilles. You’re going to remember a car for its excitement and how it made you feel.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though.

Welcome back to the club! Great looking car and a great story behind the reason for your uhhh, sabbatical ;) 

 

Hopefully your son will continue the path and success on which you've helped set him on.

 

I'll certainly look forward to having a yarn with you at a meet at some point!
