— My Alphabe-Thursday, "Z" Cars I Have Known — "Z" Two Questions
The Letter "Z" is the last letter of our English alphabet. Strangely enough, the English do not use this letter very often. I refer to you our English (American) "Z". (Google Search for "use of letter Z in british english" )
I would have picked "Z" for Zebra but I did not have a picture of one on file. And I wasn't about to run down the 65 miles to the Houston Zoo for one. I did try one toy store and found no toy Zebra there.
So I picked "Z" for "Z" Cars instead. I just happened to have had a couple of blogs written about the two here.
First, above, is a BMW "Z4" Car. The Z4 was introduced in 2002 and is still in production with an improved model. (Google Search for "BMW Z4") (Jim's 2008 blog featuring this car) BTW, this "Z" is owned by a lady friend of ours. For this picture it is sitting in our church parking lot.
Second, to the left on my NAPA calendar, is a 1968 Chevrolet "Z"-28 Camero. My son had a 1968 Camero painted blue and white like this in high school. His was an "RS" Camero. (Jim's 2010 blog featuring this car)
Now for my Thursday Two Questions.
I really enjoyed your responses to my Yellow Car post of last week. I did have a couple of Yellow Toy Cars that I did not post about.
1. If your older relative willed you his one of his Z Cars like these above, would you want the newer BMW or the older Chevy, which would you want? Why that one? I
2. Do you have or would you like to have a collector car? What might it be?
2. I don't have one but if I did it would be a Corvette fastback.
My favorite "Z" word, off the top of my head is zeal. The minister preached about it Sunday and it is still fresh in my mind. We need to be more zealous.
My car is 6 yrs old - feels like a collector car already!!
Happy A-Thursday to you Jim!
Brilliant Z post!!
(Zoom begins with Z)
We don't have any collector car. It's too expensive to maintain one in Singapore.
Zeal. Zealous. You're right, Dr Jim. There are very few "Z" words.
Between the two Z-cars, I would certainly pick the Camero over the BMW hands down. Simply because I prefer the racy old-school look over the newly modern sleek versions, which don't seem to have the same appeal as the classic.
I think, if I were into collector cars then I would go for a Mustang from the 60s. You know those fast little beasties with the hood scoop which made them appear to be ferious on the road and I'm sure they were. Oh yes, it has to be red, too!
Great fun questions this week! My post is up, if you have time feel free to zip over to my place to read Zebras Aren't the Only Thing With Stripes
However my favourite car would be a volkswagon golf GTI

thanks for stopping by.
i am not much about cars and definitely i do not know about what a collector car is but if there is an old Mini Cooper collector car, i'd choose that.
my post for this meme is here ->http://warmstonesite.com/2012/11/15/thursday-two-questions-hair-care/
2. No, I wouldn't want a collector car.
3. Zestful is my 'Z' word.
Have a terrific day. :)
I don't think I would like to have a collector's car. Anything collector means it will drive me nuts. I have a phobia of collecting. As a matter of fact, I would like to get rid of half the stuff in my house right now, Ive accumulated too much over the years and it is really annoying me. Smiles. Have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for playing along with us.
And it would be nice to own a collector's vehicle. I could always pass it down in my family.
Have a great weekend!
Saying 'hello' via Alphabe- Thursday - mine for letter 'Z' @ ImagesByCW is about Zug, Switzerland
My husband would love zis post!
I'm not much of a vehicle person. I'm all about the color.
If it's a cool orange or brown, I'm in!
Thanks for the smile, Jim!
Happy Post-Thanksgiving Monday!
