Caffeine & Octane was today. I got up early, loaded up the car, and drove down to the lot where it is held. I arrived earlier than usual to make sure I could save enough spots for the first generation Z crowd. Most of the regulars showed up. The Z Atlanta group arrived early and got to park near us, too. It was nice having so many Z cars together. Some people need to show up with 280ZXs and early 300ZXs, though. I’m not sure where they are hiding.
The turnout seemed lighter than usual. It was probably because it was pretty chilly. I was hanging out a while with Daisuke from Z Atlanta. It’s great to be building a relationship between the Georgia Z Club and Z Atlanta. I think both groups with benefit a lot from each other.
We did our usual strolling around, while taking pictures. Who can identify the car with the Cyrillic badge? It looked like the badge on the nose said ГA3, which I think translates to GAZ. (Update: While I was waiting for today’s pictures to upload, I did some research. It is a GAZ-21, aka Volga. Thank you, Wikipedia.) I was taking a picture of an El Camino while it drove by. The driver noticed me taking a picture and stopped so it wouldn’t be blurry. I love the car culture.
I was using my Sony video camera to take pictures, but the battery gave out before I knew it, so I switched to the iPhone. When I looked at the pictures at home, I noticed most of the Sony pictures were blurry. I guess I needed to let it focus better. I apologize for the quality of the pictures.
A big “Thank You!” to Edwin and Daisuke for getting the Z Atlanta guys out early enough to make a bigger Nissan group today.
