Here are a few of the photos that I have taken over past years. Debbie and I worked as Grid Marshals for SCCA, the Sports Car Club of America. We were fortunate to work along with some of the greatest names in racing. Of course one of our favorites was Paul Newman. One of the photos is Paul with the ladies of the Grid. Debbie is on Paul’s left…..Talking! Paul wanted to be treated as a race car driver, nothing else. The following year after this photo was taken, a copy was presented to Paul at the race track. The unique twist was all the ladies autographed the back, and he appeared to pleasantly surprised. (cuz is was all about racing!)
The first 240 Z’s went straight to the race track, and changed the sports car world forever. To this day you will still find the early Z’s thru the latest Z’s on race tracks all over the world.
Once again cool info in Grassroots Motorsports magazine. August 2018 issue. This issue has PART 1 of installing a Chevy LS1 into a 2003 350 Z. This issue has portions of seven pages on getting ready to do the swap, and establish a base line on the stock 350 Z.
Also there are four pages of info and photos from Classic Motorsports Mitty at Road Atlanta. What a sight to see all the Nissan,s on the track. This included John Morton, and the rebuilt original 240 Z C/P race car. There was the GTP ZX-Turbo that was in competition back in the 1980’s. Also 510’s, Roadsters, and Adam Carolla.
Datsun and Nissan are always in the automotive news. Enjoy The Ride! …
