WOW! 5 yrs already, boy does time fly! It is funny just to think of the characters that have come and gone and the ones that are still here.

 

Kinda of like raising children, one day they are running around pre school aged and the next thing you know they are grown and off to College.

 

Thanks to all who make this GREAT site what it is today. This is the only site I religiously hang out at!

Honestly, I would have guessed it's been around longer than that. It's been around "since I can remember" and I want to think that I can remember more than 5 years. :twak::)

 

Edit: I just realized how old this thread is..... wow... just, wow... took me long enough.

 

Hey Dan,

 

Is there any way you can change my username here to "280Z28" ?

 

It's the name I use on all the forums I go to except this one, yet this is the one where it actually makes sense.

 

lol

It`s VERY hard to believe this site is almost "six" already. I think I`ts been almost a year since my last post.

BTW, I`m sorry for not posting for so long. Life has been running me in circles.

Having three kids, and starting two new businesses has seriously limited my time for the Z. I have been working on cylinder head porting and hope to send the car for paint within the next month or two.

That might just be the motivation that I need to get the car finished.

Holy Heck its Denny!!! Hey man did you get a call in the middle of the night about a year ago...some wierdo talking about an alarm going off and reports and other freaky stuff... Yeh that was me... I dialed the wrong Denny in my phone and didn't realize it until I hung up. Sorry!!

 

The car is still on the rot... hopefully it will come off in about 6 months. Good to hear from you... keep on postin'!!

I`m amazed to see how the membership has changed over the years.I have poked my head in from time to time to see what`s happening, and I`ve been somewhat surprised at the changes.

I see that the V8 Z is slowly becoming less popular, as the younger crowd are turning to the new 4 and 6 cyl fi and turbo setups. I personally still prefer the "BIG ENGINE little CAR" philosophy.

I`ve also noticed that many of the old members are less visible. I guess there lives have gotten just as complicated as mine.

Denny, It goes in phases. Kinda like my teenagers...

 

The oldest was soooo consumed by the Honda thing when he was 16. Now, almost 21, he's stuffing an RB25 into a 240SX. Eventually he'll move on to real cars! :lmao:

 

The youngest just told me he wants out of the "honda" thing, and wants to start a "real" project car. He's 18 and He has spent enough time around me that my influence has rubbed off. He wants to stuff an LS1 into a Miata! :2thumbs:

 

It all goes in phases... :wink:

 

Mike :cool:

Denny, good to see you finally posting again!!!!

 

I might as well mention it publicly - for the past 2 years or so, I've been making the 90-mile drive to Wapakoneta every few months, to get Denny's help with my Z. It was only by his tutelage that I've been able to reassemble my car's suspension, get the short block built - and, maybe soon - get the engine running. And it was on the basis of his advice that I took my engine components to the machine shop, in the first place!

I will try to be more visible in the near future.

I`m getting back into the Z thing pretty heavy. After finishing a complete mechanical buildup for my neighbors el camino, I`m really getting the fever to have my own TOY finished.

I just picked up the 300zx front hubs for the 4 runner caliper conversion. All I need now is a fuel cell,fuel fittings,paint, and TIME. I plan to call in some favors that are long overdue. it would be nice to have the car running for the summer.{maybe the end of summer}
