After a miserable day, yesterday where my Pantera vapor locked a half dozen times in a 30 miles trip home from a friend's automotive workshop, I was not very happy. I was scheduled to participate in a very small car show celebrating Tarzana's (community in the San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles)., but I was really nervous about driving the car to the event even though it was only a few miles from my house. I decided to chance it and figured it would sit for several hours and cool down enough that I could get home afterwards. It was a very small show with maybe 45-50 cars that ranged from rat rods to Ferraris. I parked my car in a row that had several 240z cars, a couple of vintage pickups etc. One of the 240Zs was exceptional with its magnificent bright orange paint. As I was getting ready to leave, there was an announcement that awards were going to be given at that time, so I stayed. A lot of people stopped to admire my car, so I just wanted to see if there was any chance of picking up one of the awards. And lo and behold, the first announced award was to my car for BEST PAINT OF SHOW. I was very surprised. My paint is very nice but not perfect and didn't (I thought) have the impact of the orange 240Z although it garnered a lot of attention from onlookers and nice comments from everyone who stopped to talk with me. So, I guess I can now say tht I have an "Award Winning" Pantera. Go figure!
