1991 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 "barn find"
The 300ZX was by far the nicest car I'd ever owned. The previous owner was a collector and this genuine "barn find" took 1st place in every event he entered it in. During my ownership, it took 1st place in 3 of the 4 events I entered it in and 2nd place in the other. One of the 1st place finishes was at Lime Rock Park's "Gathering of the Marques" event at the 34th Historic Festival in 2016 where it won the 1st place trophy for all Japanese Marques. The best part? The guy who gave me the trophy was driver turned team owner Bob Sharpe - the same guy who partnered with Paul Newman.
