Branson Z Fest 2006

OMFG! What a blast all this was!! It was great to finally put faces on a lot of the names I've known for so long!! Steve, thanks for all the effort you put into making this so much fun! It was als great to finally meet Paul (AZ ZBUM) for the first time! He's got some great pics to post I'm sure!!!! We had a wee bit too much beer Friday night.........

Anyway, here's an assload of pics I took.....

Goldie....


Black 2+2 NA, dressed very nicely:








240Z V8 Conversion "Scarab", the Branson Z Fest's People's Choice FIRST PLACE WINNER!




A Goldie Z31 - Unknown owner


A Goldie 280Z




I like the color, almost considered this color for my 2+2:


Obviously where the owner of the above Z got his color idea!


Tim's 525RWHP 350Z and THIRD place winner of the Branson Z Fest People's Choice (Congrats Tim, beautiful Z!):






280Z with a 'questionable' wing.......sorry, I couldn't help it...


As I was chuckling to myself at this Z32's body kit, I started talking to the owner of the car. Really nice guy, and the car kinda grows on you....






Z33 Vert:


A Z31 that Steve completely restored. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL work Steve!!!


There's always one diamond in the rough in every crowd, someone's Z32 Slicktop that needs a little TLC:






Another 280Z V8 conversion:


Steve's 35th Anniversary 350Z, collecting ballots in the hatch for the People's Choice Awards:






Some really nice looking white TTZ:


well, you decide on this one:


Just some group shots and random pics:


















Looking forward to next year's event, and even more of a turnout!! Thanks for a great weekend guys!!

TC

Re: Branson Z Fest 2006

Yeah once you get moved to the mainland, you best show up. We're already working on next year. Maybe we'll pull a rabbit out of the hat with this one. No date as yet. My vert will be there even if I have to trailer it in.

Chris guess the suspension will have to wait till I get the leak fixed. Talked to Nissan and they have no idea if the pump was done with the TB service at 115k.

Oh and I may have found a helicopter for next year real cheap.

Re: Branson Z Fest 2006

Hey everybody, David Sommer here winner of the peoples choice. I'd like to thank everybody that voted for my car, it was quite an ordeal to make this event with the twinz. Hats off to my wife Lisa for going along with this "big idea" of mine to take the whole family, she drove over at 3am Saturday morning so the boys could be there.

I need to know exactly who to ask for permission to use the above photos of the Scarab for Sport Z magazine. Ken Frakes who covered the event (freelance) for SportZ unfortunately deleted the Scarab pictures from his camera and doesn?t want to ?steal? somebody else?s photos.

If possible please contact me off line at [email protected] so I can put you in touch with Ken.

Thanks again to everybody!!!!

David & Lisa Sommer
Simon & Elijah the twinz

Hey Dave,

I am the owner of the site, and the one who took the pictures of your car. You have my permission to use my pics of your car for anything you need. I also have the high res versions stored on my PC. Let me know if you want those too.

If they're going in a magazine, maybe a little reference to zmods.org if possible

What car was yours? I associated a lot of people I met by their cars.... It might jog my memory! I was thinking about joining HAZCC, but I wouldn't make it to KC too often for meets.... I'm sure there's other benefits........ I'll look into it a little more.

Re: Branson Z Fest 2006

Kyle, I remember seeing your car, it came in the parking lot next door once and I first thought it was Pete's. I'm terrible with names, but remember cars usually. I did have gaps in time on ocassion.

Kenz if you fly in you'll get the greatest distance award.

did you drive the vert?

and im flattered that i was almost mistaken for Pete's car.
I honestly dont care a whole lot about the appearence of my car. Its just to the point where it looks ok and not like total crap. I've just put all my attention in to getting it running well and upgrades.

Re: Branson Z Fest 2006

No the vert decided to piss antifreeze right before leaving to come to Branson, had to unload everything in it and I drove the 35th AE(one with "35th Z" tag on it). It's my wife's car, she drove my truck up with the kids. Really missed it too, it would have been the only 32 vert there this year. It's now in the shop and haven't heard if the leak has been found or not. It never leaked any again. They are also flushing and cleaning the tranny. May just be a cracked fill jug, but it bothered me and if I have doubt's I won't drive it.

Almost mistaken for Pete's car, it was getting close to dark and I had already been hitting the CaboWabo?? But yeah at first I thought it was Pete's car. I think that night(friday) I had promised not to start drinking till almost dark. If it was Thursday I had already drank half a liter of "Viuda de Romero" tequilla from Mexico, by the time it got dark.

One thing to remember I really suck at names, plus I wonder around alot and shoot the BS with everyone.

Re: Branson Z Fest 2006

That's "Nappy's" slicktop from Little Rock Arkansas.
Diflicted, the 89 z31 in 2 tone was also mine, it's a joint venture with a friend and is for sale. At present we have about 12-14 31's and an 81 280zx and I have 1 78 280z and am working on closing on 2 more 280z's a 76 and 78.

Did you catch the picture of all the Z's on that truck. Walter owns the truck and also has a Z, so they loaded it and hauled a bunch in. I think there were about 8 cars on it. The Blue 350's owner is called "triple digit" Chris. Last year he was stopped doing 107 I believe it was and had to sit in jail for an hour before getting out. During the pub crawl last year tehre was a band playing at one of the pubs and they made up this song about "triple digit" Chris. Damn that Nebraska bunch are a blast and just a little wild.

I had a good time... hehe. And I THOUGHT that gold Z looked familiar!

I also ran my first 12 second quarter mile while in Branson. I was a happy guy.

Sorry been gone to eastern Arkansas for a bit.
Yes we have somewhere around 12 Z31's right now between me and Skidmore. Plus saturday I got a POS 81 280zx and a 78 280 that's in fair shape(needs clutch).
Yesterday coming back from court in eastern Arkansas I located 3 84-86 turbos, all pretty ruff and a 280zx looks fair but couldn't get close enough to look it over, found it in a field sitting on blocks. Will be making calls to track down the owner.

Also located a 74 260 auto with a tons of extra parts in a barn. The people said it was there when they bought the place 2 years ago. So now guess I've got a 74 260.

Drew, this was 3 years ago. I have a lot of the pictures at one of my photobucket accounts.

Never got the lyrics to the song.
