    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here, just completed my first Z3 :) I entered this video rebuild contest and was selected as one of 10 finalists. Grand prize is $10,000 - it would really help to pay off some of the massive debt I've accumulated over the last 4 years (just finished my doctorate).
    So I need your help. Winner is decided by a public vote, so please help by voting once a day for the next 10 days or so. My video is "Z Dream".

    Thanks!
    Joshua

    Welcome Joshua,

    It's an interesting video project you have posted. Looks like your hard work paid off looking at the end result.

    Would be nice to see some picture of the car as well :)

    Cheers, Gary

    I've added them in as full sized images for you. That was in a real mess when you got it!

    The interior came out of the M roadster :) Initially was going to do the whole body conversion, but decided to just do the interior.

    Thanks to all! I can't wait to bring it back from the body shop...he needs to re-buff the paint and do final gap alignment on the body, but then it gets to come home!

    Just read your thread - sounds like you were able to get a settlement and keep the car? It's really not that bad as far as accidents go. If you were closer, I'd probably have a bunch of the parts you need, they're worth very little over here (headlight, upper tie bar, radiator, etc) Best of luck in getting her back on the road!

    Also, I'd love if everyone could vote every day for my video, I'm getting trounced by a Suburu WRX and a VW GTI right now...but still have a chance to win $10,000 grand prize in one week. This would really help pay the massive student loans I've taken to finish my doctorate!

    Welcome Josh and congratulations for the resurection of this "Atlanta" Blue Z! Being from Atlanta initially, I would say is reborn like the Phoenix!
    Hope you'll get the 10 G; you have my full support!

    Looks like you can only vote once, as I did the other day, on your vid.
