Nice one Mr. Fuku :)

 

It's great you are still around. Hope to see you soon mate (maybe the Leeds Castle meet?) :)

Wow, and what a 10 years it has been:

 

2 Zeds

1 Vauxhall VXR 8

1 Nissan Micra

1 Ford Focus

1 Jaguar XFR-S

1 Skoda Fabia

1 Divorce

1 New House

1 Wedding

5 Run2 Trophies

4 Aircraft type captain qualifications (C-130J Hercules, A400M Atlas, Lancaster B Mk 1, Dakota C Mk 3)

 

So, the cars:

 

Old and new Zeds together.

The VXR8 Bathurst S (and one of the planes). The VXR8 was number 8 of 17 made!

It's been great. Membership renewal is a foregone conclusion. Even though I don't have a Zed, it's the people that make this club - trust me, I've met some people from the other clubs! :)

The Zed has gone! After 7 years of 350Z Ownership including having owned 2 of them, I've now got a Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S Jaguar

(A French Racing Blue XFR-S with 550bhp :) - no string back driving gloves in sight!)

The Zed will be missed though - superb car, never missed a beat!

Wow Seb - thats a hell of a lot to fit in 10 years. You have had amazing cars. I have to say I have a special soft spot for the 350's and the Last one in particular. I love the Jag I have to say. Did the Zeds came from Cambridge (by the looks of the Photo)?

 

Anyway its great that you continue to be here, as you say what makes this place special is the people. And the people that stay even long after the Zeds have gone. I too strayed away to another brand car club for a couple of years and its not the same.

Thank-you for the congratulations - a very nice idea. I will upfront confess to being a lurker to start with, and taking membership after participating in the club's first visit to CAT Driver Training.

 

Heres a few pics from my collection. Firstly, from my first trip to the Nordschleife, at Spa with Mr Fuku's freebie NISMO (vs my GT):

Then from the Silverstone Z Anniversary event and featuring 4 of the 5 35th Anniversary (GT4) Ultra Yellow attendees (the fifth one eluded my marshalling efforts!):
