Thursday started a bit hung over and late with another Starbucks…just call me basic. We met up with Tyler and Steph with the Q50, and got some Mexican food for lunch. After lunch we all took a dip in the pool trying to catch a tan. At about 4:30 Eric with Momentum Media and I went back to pikes peak to try and get some more rolling shots and photos with different lighting. I don’t have all the photos yet, but the ones that are finished are below… and damn.
My first day at ZCON 2021 was awesome! We started at Pikes Peak with a group of about ten cars per run group. We were told not to do over 30 mph, which is understandable, the speed limit on the mountain is 30mph and the hair pins are intense and banked. We started filming for my ZCON video with our run group… the footage sneak peaks I’ve seen are absolutely killer.
Once we got back from Pikes Peak, there was a Suds and Shine area at the host hotel. Basically an area with a car wash station to clean off all the dust your car accumulated up and down the mountain. It’s also a place where everyone can see each other and chat and hang out.
From the Suds and Shine we left for the Opening Ceremonies and the Z Reveal Party! The scenery was absolutely gorgeous there, and the venue was beautiful. It was an awesome feeling being literally surrounded by other Z enthusiasts while watching the new Z being revealed via YouTube. I almost had a ‘I’m not crying, your crying moment.

This Labor Day weekend has been awesome. Saturday morning we woke up bright and early before the sun rise to get to Cars and Coffee in Irvine CA.
Nissan Design was there with some vintage Silvia’s and a vintage Skyline race car. Andy Juang brought his R33 Skyline, Symbolic brought four Bugatti Veyron’s, and Magnus Walker brought some cool Porsche’s.
After meeting up with some of the awesome guys from Nissan Design, we cruised down the way to the Nissan 360 experience and got to see some of the concept cars from Nissan and Infiniti, saw some of the Nissans from all over the world with the different designs to fit the different demographics, and saw the GTR GT3-which gave me some ideas on what to do for my Z.
And I know you want to see more of that GTR….
