Pretty White Z

I found these pictures in my email yesterday. A fellow named Christian M. Gates sent them. I think I got them by mistake, but it is a good looking car, so I thought I would share. I wonder how long it will take for Christian to find them?

These are some of the cars I have owned in the past, starting with the first car I ever owned.

1976 Datsun 710
1970 Datsun 240Z
1987 Toyota MR2
1988 Toyota Celica All-Trac
1972 Datsun 240Z
1991 Eagle Talon
1992 Mazda Miata
1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo
1994 Mazda RX-7
1968 Datsun Roadster
1970 Datsun 240Z
1976 Datsun 260Z
1998 BMW M3
1997 Mazda Miata
1993 Mazda RX-7 CYM
2003 Mazda Miata
1987 Toyota SDK8
2005 Lotus Elise
2006 Infiniti G35x
1997 Ford F150
2011 Infiniti M37x
1994 Mazda Miata

I have also owned a couple Tundra’s, T100, and Troopers mixed in there as well.  What was my favorite car?  I love my current Lotus Elise, however my 1993 RX-7 CYM was probably my all time favorite.  The Talon was most reliable, it went over 150K miles, very few of them were what you would call “easy” miles.  My 2006 Infiniti cleared 170K miles before finally giving up one of its cylinders.


Steve Bounds 1966 Porsche 911

This is Steve’s beautiful new 1966 Porsche 911.
This is a 1966 with a latter model 2.7 liter fuel
injected engine.
Rear view next to my 1972 Datsun 240Z.
This car was originally raced in the Middle East
(Lebanon).
It is a European model with full European
instrumentation.
That 2.7 liter is fast, but can it beat my 2.8 liter
with triple Webers? Only time will tell.
